GREAT VALUE DETACHED HOUSE PLUS ANNEXE WITHIN 10 MINUTE WALK OF GYLLYNGVASE BEACH. Ideally positioned within the town, within 15/20 minutes walk of schools, the town centre, harbourside and seafront, a substantial, detached, individual house enjoying a sunny south-westerly aspect, providing attractively updated and extremely versatile 5 bedroom main accommodation, in addition to which there is a large, attached, 2-storey annexe to the rear, perfect for those with a dependent relative or seeking a source of letting income etc.


Dating from the 1930's, 23 Western Terrace is a perfect two-family home which, over recent years, has been substantially improved and reconfigured by the present owners.

Set behind well enclosed, sunny, south-west facing front gardens with pedestrian access onto Western Terrace, the house provides five bedroom main accommodation, with upstairs rooms enjoying views over Western Terrace to the outskirts of the town beyond.

A superb two-storey annexe to the rear has both independent external access if required, together with interconnecting doors at ground and first floor levels, making this ideal for those with a dependent relative. The annexe provides a downstairs WC, potential kitchen, private lounge and upstairs bedroom and shower room/WC. A fitted chairlift will remain.

The entire property is tastefully presented throughout, benefits from gas fired central heating and double glazing and, to the rear, there is a further well enclosed, sheltered and sunny garden with exceptionally good parking facilities including a detached block-built garage, three-car hardstanding, and additional enclosed yard, ideal for dinghy storage, boating equipment or further car parking if required.


Western Terrace is situated close to Melvill Road, which leads to the seafront, beaches, Castle Drive and Pendennis Point. Within just a few moments walking distance of the property are day-to-day amenities including Falmouth Tennis and Squash Club with gym, doctors surgery, junior schools, convenience store on Albany Road, chemist, church and regular bus services. The Moor and town centre are a ten/fifteen minute walk away; railway stations at Penmere and Falmouth Town are even closer, with the hospital and secondary school at Trescobeas within a twenty minute walk or thereabouts. Consequently, 23 Western Terrace is perfectly positioned for all of the town's excellent amenities.
