The property We remember old friends of ours building Barbary House in 1987 and have known and liked it ever since. Its three storey design is inspired and flexible with some fantastic views, most especially from its large triple aspect living room, comfortably big enough to house a dining table too, and with access to a small balcony. On the ground floor is a sociable kitchen and dining room and a study/office/bedroom four, each accessing the sheltered rear courtyard garden. The top floor has two large bedrooms each with access to a 'Jack & Jill' central shower room/WC. Indeed for practicality there is a bath, shower room or cloakroom on each level. So valuable to have a generous garage 'in town' plus an ability to park off-road.
All is perfectly comfortable and well-equipped but the house would benefit from some uplifting and modernising here and there.
Barbary House presents a remarkable chance to own an inspired town home in this superb location - very rare and wholeheartedly recommended!
The location Barbary House lies along a quiet no-through road in a remarkably convenient spot beside Lawn Steps, just a few minutes' walk from Falmouth town centre and harbourside.
The location is historic and engaging where one enjoys commanding views and so much that delights about Falmouth is on ones' near doorstep.
Falmouth is a thriving and vibrant town with an eclectic mixture of independent and national shops, many galleries showcasing local art and crafts and an excellent and varied selection of places to eat and drink.
Events Square and the National Maritime Museum regularly host activities and events throughout the year including Falmouth Classics, Falmouth Week and the Oyster and Sea Shanty festivals. Falmouth seafront faces south over the Bay with sandy beaches and access to the Southwest coastal path leading back to Swanpool near to the house. No wonder then, that Falmouth is consistently voted in the top five favorite places to live in the UK.
