DESCRIPTION

Enjoying beautiful water views over to Flushing and across the deeper waters of Falmouth Harbour, with its ever-changing boating activity, an appealing 1920's 2-bedroomed house, located in an elevated position above 'Greenbank', benefiting from front and rear gardens, and within an approximate 10 minute walk of Falmouth's bustling town centre - an ideal permanent home or holiday investment.

THE PROPERTY

Set back from Penwerris Lane in an elevated position, this two-bedroomed, end-terraced property offers well proportioned and extremely light accommodation, retaining many traditional features and original joinery, that would ideally suit permanent residents or holiday let purchasers.

With improved accommodation including uPVC double glazing and a new gas boiler providing central heating, the property could be further improved, subject to ones own personal taste, style and preferences. The kitchen is located to the rear of the dining room with a double glazed door providing access to the surprisingly level and enclosed gardens to the rear. The two bedrooms and the bathroom with separate WC can be found to the first floor, with the main bedroom to the front enjoying wonderful views across the constant boating activity along the Penryn River, to the shoreline of Flushing and Carrick Roads beyond.

THE LOCATION

This property is located on Penwerris Lane, just 'above' the Greenbank Hotel, within an approximate ten minute walk to Falmouth's bustling and vibrant town centre. Falmouth, as a whole has a unique combination of wonderful sea views, beaches, active harbour and its town centre has a newly earned reputation as a cultural hub'. Narrow streets run down to an active harbourside, the National Maritime Museum, many galleries, boutique shops and a quite unrivalled selection of restaurants and public houses. Beautiful sandy beaches are easily reached from the town, which also benefits from a branch line rail link to the nearby cathedral city of Truro (twelve miles distant), the county's legal, administrative, retail and commercial centre.
