DESCRIPTION

On highly popular Budock Terrace, a few minutes' walk from The Moor and town centre, a terraced 3 bedroom, 2 reception room house, attractively presented throughout, with a sunny well enclosed rear garden, and potential to extend to the rear or convert the loft, subject to the necessary consents.

THE PROPERTY

Having been a successful investment for many years as a lucrative student let and currently yielding £18,120 per annum , the house is also presented to a good standard with recent redecoration, and would therefore lend itself to either a family home or superb investment property. Budock Terrace is a quiet residential road, a few minutes' walk from The Moor and Falmouth's town centre. The house retains many original features and some traditional joinery including the timber staircase, architraves and skirting boards, but also benefits from modern additions such as uPVC double glazing and gas fired central heating.

Providing attractively presented accommodation for a property of this type, providing three first floor bedrooms, in addition to which some prospective purchasers may wish to use some of the reception rooms as additional bedroom space.

A shallow front garden with pathway leads to the front entrance porch and into a deep hallway, with traditional turning staircase rising to a part galleried first floor landing over. Like the rest of the house, the lounge to the front features a uPVC window, the second reception room (previously used as a bedroom) overlooks the rear courtyard and enclosed lawned garden beyond. From the back of the entrance hall, a doorway leads into a well presented and bright kitchen with modern fitted units and window which overlooks the courtyard, which is accessed via the rear hallway. A modern recently refitted shower room behind completes the ground floor accommodation. The part galleried first floor landing has a window to the rear elevation, large built-in cupboard and doors to the three first floor bedrooms, two of which are well proportioned 'doubles'.

From the kitchen, a part glazed door opens into a sheltered rear courtyard, from where steps ascend into a sunny rear garden, level lawn and central pathway leading to a pedestrian gate, providing rear access. There is the possibility, subject to the necessary consents, to obtain permission for off-road parking within the rear garden.

Some prospective purchasers may wish to know that other properties of this type along Budock Terrace have extended over the kitchen or converted the loft area to provide additional accommodation, although prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries with regard to any planning permissions and relevant consents, which may be required.
