3 Bed House - Semi-detached - Budock Water, Falmouth


  • Attractive stone cottage
  • 3 bedrooms
  • 2 reception rooms
  • Semi-detached
  • Large basement store with potential
  • Large rear garden
  • Popular village location
  • Requiring refurbishment


Having been in the same family's ownership since its original construction circa 1900, a charming semi-detached house with attractive stone elevations, in need of modernisation and refurbishment, although currently extended to the rear to provide a total of 3 bedroom, 2 reception room accommodation with an amazingly traditional feel and unusually large gardens which widen to the rear boundary, with the added benefit of potential to provide driveway parking within the front garden.


Constructed, we believe in the late Victorian period, and having never been on the open market, a lovely semi-detached cottage, retaining most of the original features including fireplaces, timber floorboards and staircase, original panelled doors and architraves, some timber sash windows - this cottage could be restored to its original condition or reconfigured to suit personal requirements i.e. opening-up the reception rooms etc.

A particularly unusual asset is the basement storage area, which occupies the same area as both reception rooms, in addition to a separate garden store beneath the kitchen. The garden size is certainly unexpected from the roadside, as the plot widens towards the rear boundary to provide an extremely generous garden, again, requiring some work and personalisation.


The School Lane area of Budock Water is located within a short walk of the centre of the village, just one mile from Falmouth. Budock Water has become one of the most highly sought-after villages in the Falmouth area due to its close proximity to the harbour town and its traditional village community, including a highly popular pub, post office, a local church and park. The village itself is conveniently located for Falmouth, Penryn, Mawnan Smith, Swanpool and Maenporth, and it also provides easy access to the Falmouth bypass, therefore a quicker link to Truro and the A30.
