DESCRIPTION

A quite exceptional late Georgian town house, offering beautifully presented and versatile 4/5 bedroom accommodation, exceptionally well appointed throughout, with deep and extremely sunny walled rear gardens, on this, one of Falmouth's most sought-after harbour-facing terraces, a few minutes' walk from the town centre; with all main front-facing rooms featuring bay windows enjoying panoramic views across the harbour to the village of Flushing, Trefusis Point, deep sailing waters of the Fal Estuary and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula beyond.

THE PROPERTY

Constructed, we understand, circa 1830, Number 32 Wodehouse Terrace offers charming and beautifully presented accommodation, full of light and character, with many authentic period features, now complemented by a superb standard of appointment throughout.

This handsome town house has been lovingly and tastefully refurbished/extended by the current owner, completely in keeping with the original Georgian era. All front-facing rooms capture the breathtaking outlook over much of Falmouth Harbour and beyond, visible through tall timber sash bay windows from both formal reception rooms, together with the two largest double bedrooms. All rear-facing rooms enjoy a pretty south-westerly outlook over the superb walled gardens, with level patio area and deep lawned gardens beyond, attractive stone boundaries and well stocked flower beds. The general feel of the accommodation is light, airy, flowing, versatile and full of character, and therefore we are extremely confident that an internal viewing will not disappoint!

THE LOCATION

Wodehouse Terrace is widely recognised as one of Falmouth's most sought-after harbour-facing terraces by virtue of its elevated position which commands panoramic views across the breadth of the harbour, with town centre to the foreground, which remains within just a few minutes' walking distance. Excellent junior and a secondary schooling is available with Falmouth's shops, galleries, an art centre and variety of restaurants being 'at the foot of the hill' and all of the town's excellent leisure amenities including many sports and sailing clubs, are all within easy reach.

A short walk along Wodehouse Terrace and down Grove Hill Crescent leads to one of Falmouth's railway stations with regular service to the nearby cathedral city of Truro, approximately twelve miles distant, the county's commercial, retailing, administrative and health centre, with onward rail connection to London (Paddington), journey time approximately four and a half hours. Falmouth's seafront, safe sandy beaches and numerous sub-tropical gardens are an approximate fifteen minute walk away; excellent golf courses are available at Falmouth, Budock Vean, Killiow and Truro, and a short drive across the county to Newquay Airport provides regular domestic flights to Gatwick and Stanstead Airports (flight time approximately sixty minutes).

Whether as a family or early retirement home, prospective purchasers could hardly be better placed for all of Falmouth's and central Cornwall's ever-improving amenities.
