DESCRIPTION

Within a popular stretch of Dracaena Avenue, being within a 15-20 minute walk of both Gyllyngvase Beach and the town centre/harbourside, an extended 1930's semi-detached house with well proportioned 3-bedroomed, 3 reception roomed accommodation, including a superb 26' kitchen and dining room, with the additional benefit of multi-vehicle driveway parking, sunny, level, rear garden and patio with detached timber studio/workshop.

THE PROPERTY

Constructed, we understand, in the 1930's, a particularly well proportioned semi-detached bay-fronted home, retaining many original features including fireplaces, floorboards, architraves and updated with modern additions such as uPVC double glazing and central heating. The layout of the accommodation is well thought out and adaptable, and offers versatile three/four double bedrooms.

Set back from popular Dracaena Avenue, a driveway for up to four vehicles leads to the front entrance porch, and a deep side pathway accesses the rear of the property where there is a detached timber workshop and well enclosed, level and sunny rear garden, facing south-west, laid mainly to lawn, with a broad patio and further storage shed.

An entrance porch, with original tessellated tiling, leads to an attractive hallway with stripped floorboards, providing a pleasant introduction to the property, with timber panelled doors to the three main ground floor rooms and cloakroom/WC. A well proportioned lounge to the front retains many original features including a box bay window, open fireplace and exposed timber floors. An attractively refitted kitchen within an extension to the rear, is accessed from a dining area - making a superb, particularly deep 26' room overlooking the garden to the rear of the property. An additional ground floor reception room, currently utilised as a study, could provide a separate dining room, lounge or bedroom, behind which is a sun room/utility with French doors opening onto the patio and garden. The three double bedrooms and family bathroom are found to the first floor, with a good sized walk-in cupboard, which could provide an en-suite or dressing room to the main bedroom, if required.

All in all, a superbly proportioned family home and, as the vendors' Sole Agents, we strongly recommend an early viewing appointment is made to appreciate.

THE LOCATION

The property is located on this highly popular palm-lined road, which leads towards Falmouth beaches and seafront, an approximate fifteen minute walk away. Killigrew Street, Kimberley Park Road and the town centre are all located within easy walking distance and nearby are Kimberley Park, corner stores and newsagents, junior and secondary schooling, as well as bus and rail services to the nearby university town of Penryn and beyond, to the cathedral city of Truro, the county's administrative, retailing and commercial centre, approximately twelve miles distant.
