DESCRIPTION

With quite unexpected harbour views from the first floor, a spacious and particularly versatile Grade II Listed gothic-style Victorian town house, with generous 3 (potentially 4) bedroom accommodation, in a superb 'tucked-away' period terrace within easy walking distance of the town centre, seafront and beaches. Ready for immediate occupation with no onward chain.

THE PROPERTY

Ready for immediate possession, centrally heated and freshly decorated throughout, this substantial Grade II Listed town house has been extended to the rear at ground and first floor levels, and provides extremely versatile accommodation featuring two reception rooms (formerly linked by a broad arch), plus conservatory, bath/shower rooms on both levels and three first floor double bedrooms - with the possibility of reinstating a fourth (single bedroom) if required. The enclosed garden to the rear comprises a lower courtyard rising to an upper patio, with secondary access steps descending from the first floor (bedroom three).

THE LOCATION

Albert Cottages is a quiet tucked-away terrace of period houses, positioned immediately behind Wodehouse Terrace and, consequently, a highly sought-after residential area, a few moments' walk from the town centre and harbourside and within an approximate fifteen minute walk of the seafront and beaches. This property enjoys lovely views from the first floor over the harbour to Trefusis Point, the port area, Pendennis and St Mawes Castles, the deep sailing waters of the Fal Estuary, and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula beyond Falmouth Bay is even visible.
