DESCRIPTION

With the benefit of an HMO status and therefore flexible in future use as either a family home or multi-room investment (existing student letting contracts expire on 31 July 2019), an appealing 3-bedroomed house, situated in a perfect location within a few minutes' walk of Falmouth's town centre and main bus station; Gyllyngvase Beach and the seafront are within an appropriate 15 minute walk.

THE PROPERTY

An attractive pre-war end-terraced house, within little known West Place , running parallel with Marlborough Road and Killigrew Street, leading to The Moor and harbourside.

Designed as a three-bedroomed home with separate sitting and dining rooms at ground floor, this well proportioned house has been occupied by students (as a House of Multiple Occupancy) for many years, and provides the current and future owners with huge versatility as either an investment property with three (possibly four) letting rooms, or a comfortable family home. Utilising one of the reception rooms as a bedroom and two first floor double bedrooms as letting rooms also currently produces a yield of £12,960 although similar style houses in the area have adjusted the accommodation in order to produce four letting rooms (yielding approximately £17,280 pa). The second reception room on ground floor level provides a nice living space in addition to the kitchen to the rear. The original single bedroom on the first floor currently remains unused and has options for alteration to maximise returns. The first floor bathroom and additional shower area over completes the communal areas. Outside, the garden is low maintenance but generous in size, with a useful access gate.

THE LOCATION

West Place is a little known terrace of just four houses leading from Albany Road, close to Killigrew Street, Marlborough Road and within a few minutes' walk of Falmouth's town centre. Junior and secondary schooling are within walking distance, as are Falmouth beaches, sub-tropical gardens, numerous restaurants and bars; excellent water sports facilities centre around the active harbourside.
