The property Being end of terrace, this lovely Victorian house gathers light from three aspects, with best of both worlds harbour facing views at the front, and a sunny, South West facing courtyard garden at the rear. This superb house has been modernised and expanded in recent years providing an interior of good quality, stylishness and comfort. There are three bedrooms upstairs, the main with picture window to a fantastic harbour, estuary and coastal view. 'Living' space is generous; a harbour facing sitting room has a wood burning stove and the sociable and lovely kitchen and dining room blends old 12" exposed floorboards and the contemporary, extensively equipped cream Shaker style solid wooden topped units, beautifully.
The rear extension is a delight presenting a slate under heated floor and 'Kloeber' multifolding doors opening fully out into the rear courtyard garden.There is a 'main' bathroom/WC upstairs and part of the recent downstairs extension incorporated a superb high ceiling shower room and WC.
All is beautifully presented throughout and very well equipped; it was originally the current owners house and more recently a successful holiday let.
As previously mentioned the high walled courtyard garden is perfectly orientated and particularly private, providing a great space in which to relax and entertain. From here steps lead up to a gravelled off-road parking bay, to accommodate two large cars, beyond which is a 12' x 10' timber workshop and store.

The location Wodehouse Terrace is one of Falmouth's most sought-after and valuable addresses, set up above and a few minutes' walk from the town and harbourside. Number 31 occupies a great end of terrace position on the road, with spectacular water and coastal outlook from up and downstairs whilst its rear courtyard garden faces a perfect, South West. The house is so convenient for all that is lovely about Falmouth with pathways meandering from here, down to the town and harbourside, whilst the seafront and beaches are less than a mile away. The local 'Provedore' café/tapas bar is inspirational and nearby 'Sea View Inn' and 'Jacobs ladder' are a must. Junior and secondary schooling facilities are nearby at King Charles and Trescobeas, and many faculties of the Combined University of Cornwall are within a few minutes' walk along Woodlane. An early 'til late Convenience stores is close by at Albany Road, regular bus services lead onto The Moor and nearby railway stations at The Dell and Penmere provide a direct link to the cathedral city of Truro, the county's retail, commercial, administrative, health and educational centre.
