Enjoying what, accurately, can be described as one of the finest views in Falmouth, a stunning, detached, 4-storey house, built in 2002, providing extensive, beautifully presented and extremely versatile 4 bedroom accommodation, benefiting from double glazing, gas central heating, glass-fronted balconies, beautifully landscaped gardens, integral double garaging and additional forecourt parking. All main rooms enjoying an elevated, panoramic, 180 view over Falmouth Harbour, from Greenbank and the picturesque village of Flushing, to the port area, deep waters of the Carrick Roads, shoreline of The Roseland peninsula and twin castles at St Mawes and Pendennis.


Constructed in 2002, 'Kiln View' is a substantial, detached, individual house, arranged over four storeys, with all principal rooms enjoying the magnificent, panoramic views over the constant marine activity within Falmouth Harbour, from the Greenbank Hotel and picturesque village of Flushing, to the port area, the destination of visiting cruise liners, deep sailing waters of the Fal Estuary, shoreline of The Roseland peninsula, twin Tudor castles at St Mawes and Pendennis, mouth of the Percuil River and even out to Falmouth Bay.

With attractive smooth rendered and slate clad elevations, the house is most deceptive from the roadside and front forecourt with this, the entry level, comprising a deep reception hall, cloakroom/WC, through storage/cloakroom and integral double garage, which must have the best view of any garage in Cornwall!

A broad staircase with turned balustrade leads to the living accommodation which comprises a well appointed double aspect kitchen and superbly proportioned living room, 16'1 x 23'9 , with glass-fronted log-burner, oak flooring and patio doors opening onto a glass-fronted balcony, from and through which the views can be enjoyed.

The staircase continues to the next level which comprises a large master bedroom with glass-fronted balcony, dressing room and private en-suite bathroom, together with a further bedroom with harbour views, and cloakroom/WC. On the lower level, a good sized hallway leads to two further bedrooms, one currently used as a study/living room with patio doors onto a further balcony, and combined with a utility room and family bath/shower room, this level can be used as a 'self-contained' flat, as there is an external doorway and flight of steps leading back to the forecourt area.

The forecourt is well enclosed by walling, together with an electronic gate and provides secure off-road parking for two vehicles in addition to the integral double garage. The external staircase leads to a large and extremely useful area suitable for storage or possible extension, subject to planning permission, with the ground floor hall and first floor landing both benefiting from external access.

The balcony from the ground floor leads onto the gardens, which can also be accessed via pathways to both sides of the house, where an extensive programme of landscaping works have created a beautiful in-town garden with numerous sitting-out, decked and gravelled terraces, planted with many specimen plants.

In all, a substantial but easily managed, modern and, consequently, economically-run home, ideal for family and early retirement purchasers alike, in one of the town's most sought-after areas, moments from the top of the High Street, Royal Cornwall Yacht Club and town centre.


Penwerris Terrace occupies an elevated position 'above' Dunstanville Terrace, over which the dramatic views are enjoyed. Within easy walking distance is The Boathouse pub, a short distance from which the top of the High Street leads, in one direction, to the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club, Greenbank Hotel and Falmouth Marina, and in the other, to the town centre with its selection of shops, banks, restaurants and bars. The Prince of Wales Pier, at the foot of the High Street, provides passenger ferry services to Flushing on the northern side of the harbour, and St Mawes on the eastern banks of the Carrick Roads, the combined sailing waters of which, together with Falmouth Bay and the nearby Helford River, are recognised as perhaps the best in the country.

Falmouth's further leisure amenities include a multi-screen cinema, polytechnic, National Maritime Museum, sub-tropical gardens, sandy bathing beaches and picturesque clifftop walks. The rapidly expanding university campus at Tremough has added to the town's cosmopolitan attraction and indeed, in March 2017, the readers of The Sunday Times voted Falmouth as 'Britain's Best Place to Live'. An early viewing of this fine home is therefore strongly recommended.
