DESCRIPTION

A pretty house in a popular part of town, close to the top of Jacobs Ladder and therefore within a few moments' walk of The Moor, town centre and harbourside, providing charming 3-bedroomed accommodation which retains much character, benefiting from gas fired central heating, and with views from the first floor rear elevation over the harbour to Trefusis Point and the Carrick Roads. Currently used as an assured short-hold tenancy letting investment, equally suitable as a lovely family home.

THE PROPERTY

5 Wellington Place is a particularly appealing town house, middle of this short, sought-after terrace, close to the top of Jacobs Ladder, and with views from the first floor rear elevation over the harbour to Trefusis Point, the deep sailing waters of the Carrick Roads and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula beyond.

Retaining features including exposed timber flooring, pitch pine staircase, dado rails, tall skirting boards and small pane sash windows, the house has a charming and 'warm' appeal for both investors and permanent home owners alike.

The current tenants leave the property in July of 2019, following which immediate vacant possession can be provided. The current rental amounts to £1,280 per calendar month, £15,360 per annum.

From an entrance porch, mellow timber flooring continues into a deep reception hall, to the rear of which there is a useful lobby and utility area with door to the walled rear courtyard. The ground floor accommodation includes a front-facing lounge with log-burner, interconnecting double doors to a kitchen/dining room, and to the rear of the hallway, a well proportioned bathroom with white three-piece suite. Upstairs, the part galleried landing and rear-facing bedroom enjoy the harbour views, with the two remaining bedrooms to the front elevation, again featuring small pane sash windows.

THE LOCATION

Wellington Place is conveniently situated on the junction of Wellington Terrace and harbour-facing Clare Terrace which continues to Wodehouse Terrace and Woodlane. Jacobs Ladder provides ready access to The Moor and town centre, whose excellent retail, commercial and leisure amenities are all within easy reach. Falmouth Marine College, university campus on Woodlane, convenience stores are also close at hand, as are excellent bus and rail services to Penryn, Tremough, Truro and beyond.
