Description

We are delighted to offer as our clients sole agents, a very rare opportunity for someone to own this 1960's built, three bedroom detached bungalow which is perched high above the town centre, commanding breathtaking panoramic views along the Penryn River to Flushing in the West, straight across Carrick Roads to the Roseland Peninsular, Falmouth's harbour/docks and St Mawes Castle to the East.

Our client has enjoyed nearly five decades here at the property which now comes to the market for the first time since 1970 and gives potential new owners the chance to live in this prime location within walking distance of the town centre and all the amenities Falmouth has to offer.

The property has been well maintained and presented by our owner over the years and offers plenty of potential for someone with the vision to customise and refresh the bungalow to their own taste and requirements. Current features of note include gas fired central heating by radiators (boiler in the cellar workshop), cavity wall insulation, UPVC double glazed windows and doors and a focal point open tiled fireplace in the sitting room.

The accommodation includes an entrance porch, L-shaped reception hall, galley style kitchen with door to the side and driveway, a lounge with fabulous water views, three bedrooms (two again with superb river views) and a bathroom/wc combined. Outside has an attached garage and gated driveway parking, a cellar workshop accessed from the rear of the property and manageable surrounding gardens.

Falmouth town has a wide and diverse selection of independent high street retailers, restaurants, cafes, bars, public houses, multi-screen cinema, polytechnic theatre, galleries and gift shops too. At the far end of the town sits the Events Square which is the home to the National Maritime Museum and a host of cultural festivals throughout the year including the Oyster Festival, Falmouth River Festival and Falmouth Week. We are also delighted to host the Tall Ships Race once again this summer.

We anticipate a high demand for this property so why not register your interest and book a personal viewing to avoid disappointment.
