THE PROPERTY

Dating, we understand, from around the turn of the last century, 8 Chapel Terrace is a semi-detached house occupying a superb position 'above' the town, with all front-facing rooms, and an extensive side sun terrace, enjoying the ever-changing outlook over the constant marine activity within Falmouth's inner harbour, from the port area to Trefusis Headland, the deep sailing waters of the Fal Estuary and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula beyond.

Double glazed and gas centrally heated, the well maintained accommodation comprises: entrance porch, reception hall, interconnecting lounge and dining rooms (formerly two rooms), kitchen/breakfast room, bathroom/WC and, to the first floor, three bedrooms, two of which enjoy the fine views, the other of which benefits from an en-suite shower room.

The attractively landscaped rear gardens enjoy a high degree of sunshine, in addition to which there is a large paved sun terrace, between Chapel Terrace and Fairview Place, levelly accessed by pathway to the side of Number 9. Prospective purchasers should note the executors have made no enquiries as to the possibility of obtaining planning permission to build on this area.
