DESCRIPTION

An extremely rare opportunity to purchase a detached bungalow, in this small and superbly situated cul-de-sac, just 200 yards from the seafront and less than a 10 minute walk from Events Square, the harbourside and town centre, almost completely hidden from the roadside, amidst profusely stocked gardens, and providing 3 bedroom, 2 bath/shower room accommodation with gas central heating and an integral garage. For sale with immediate vacant possession from the end of August 2019.

THE PROPERTY

Number 11 De Pass Gardens is one of very few detached bungalows in this highly sought-after cul-de-sac, just off Falmouth's seafront, within a few moments walk of Castle and Gyllyngvase beaches.

Occupying a good sized corner position, within well stocked, mature and lightly wooded gardens, the property benefits from a broad frontage and return to Melvill and Emslie roads, onto which pedestrian access is provided, with vehicular access provided to the rear, straight into an integral garage with roller door.

The accommodation benefits from gas fired central heating and partial replacement uPVC double glazing to rooms which, in brief, comprise: entrance porch, hallway, cloaks/shower room, three bedrooms, family bathroom/WC, refitted kitchen, and L-shaped lounge/diner with broad, sliding, patio doors onto a south-facing paved patio.

The remaining gardens, which lie mainly to the front and side of the property, are extremely well stocked, provide a high degree of privacy and shelter from the roadside, and include an area of level lawn, shaded pathways and many mature shrubs and trees including azaleas, camellias, hydrangeas, palms, ferns and rhododendrons, etc.

THE LOCATION

We cannot over-emphasise how difficult it is nowadays to find a detached bungalow in Falmouth, in this price range, so close to the seafront, with both Castle and Gyllyngvase beaches being just a few minutes walk away. The circular walk around Pendennis Point is, consequently, 'on the doorstep' as are excellent bus and rail services, the former of which are literally by the entrance gate.

A short walk down Lansdowne Road leads, via Avenue Road, to Events Square, beyond which is the harbourside and town centre with its excellent range of retail, commercial and leisure amenities.

With Falmouth continuing to top many polls, as one of the best places to live anywhere in the UK, we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment.
