Agents comments An exciting opportunity to purchase a detached property, in a sought after area, with development potential. San Marino is available on the open market for the first time since construction in 1963 and is being sold with the added benefit of outline planning permission for a detached dwelling.

The property is situated on the western outskirts of Falmouth in a popular non-estate, residential location. Throughout, the accommodation is light and spacious and currently comprises; large entrance porch, reception hallway, stunning open plan living/dining/reception room overlooking and giving access to the gardens, a fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room and conservatory. A double bedroom and luxuriously appointed family bathroom/WC conclude the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor there are two further double bedrooms, the master benefiting from an ensuite shower room/WC. The property has UPVC double glazed windows and external doors and is warmed via an oil central heating system.

A huge selling point is the property's situation and the plot it enjoys. Outside there is an abundance of off road parking facilities, a detached garage and a large garden surrounding the property. Set to one side of the property there is a decked terrace with a bespoke bar area and wooden structure that currently houses a hot tub. On the adjacent side of the property there is a detached garage, section of working garden and home office. The plots potential sits within in this area, the current owners have sought outline planning permission to separate the plot and build a detached residential dwelling. Details of the application can be found under planning reference number PA19/11137.

Falmouth itself often features in the top ten towns to live in the UK in various different polls. This is due to the stunning coastal location, the wide array of amenities on offer which include an eclectic range of independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants along with a range of water sports facilities and Falmouth University.

Garden San Marino enjoys an exceptionally large plot, the front is accessed via double timber gates and a vast brick paved parking area spans across a large percentage of the front of the property providing plenty of parking.

Beyond the brick paved area there are lawned gardens which spread across the remainder of the front of the property and sweep around to the side and eventually the rear of the property.

If you like to entertain you'll love the raised decked terrace set to the side of the property. This area can be accessed from the garden and open plan living area, there is plenty of space for patio furniture and some exciting fixtures in place, there is a bespoke alfresco bar and timber structure which currently houses a hot tub.

In all the gardens must be viewed to be fully appreciated, properties in this area very rarely enjoy such space.
