DESCRIPTION

On the instruction of the executors: situated on one of Falmouth's most sought-after period terraces and enjoying fabulous views over the harbour to Flushing, Trefusis Point and the deep waters of the Carrick Roads and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula, a 2-bedroomed first floor apartment, requiring modernisation, also benefiting from an enclosed private courtyard garden and garage parking.

THE PROPERTY

One of just two properties within this three-storey building and in need of modernisation, 1a Clare Terrace boasts beautiful panoramic views over Falmouth Harbour, and is within minutes' walk of the town centre. Formerly one single residence, having been converted, we understand, many years ago, the property occupies the entirety of the first floor in this period conversion.

The accommodation within the apartment is surprisingly spacious, featuring its own private entranceway to the rear of the building, single garage parking, therefore offering its own independence from below. The living room and second bedroom currently enjoy superb elevated views, with an interesting split level hallway featuring a high ceiling and staircase descending to the ground floor which, it should be noted, is no longer in use. From the central hallway/landing, the kitchen can be accessed and leads to the dining/reception room which in turn provides access to the enclosed private courtyard garden. A granite flagstone path then leads to the single garage and entrance gate for 1a.

THE LOCATION

Clare Terrace is one of Falmouth's most sought-after harbour-facing terraces by virtue of its elevated position which commands panoramic views across the breadth of the harbour, with town centre to the foreground, which remains within just a few minutes' walking distance. Falmouth town centre provides an excellent range of shops, commercial and leisure amenities, including a wide range of high quality restaurants literally at the 'foot of the hill', and all of the town's leisure amenities including many sports and sailing clubs, are within easy reach.

The Falmouth town centre railway station is within a short walk of the property and provides regular service to the nearby cathedral city of Truro, approximately twelve miles distant, the county's commercial hub for business and retail, together with Trelissick Hospital. Onward rail connection to London (Paddington) can be obtained, taking approximately four and a half hours.
