Occupying a broad harbour-facing plot, one of only 5 detached properties along reputed Wodehouse Terrace, this 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom house offers great scope to refurbish, extend or redevelop. Unusually, the property benefits from a detached garage, driveway parking and level harbour-facing gardens a combination unlikely to find on the market in Falmouth.


Wodehouse Terrace is widely recognised as one of Falmouth's most sought-after harbour-facing terraces by virtue of its elevated position which commands panoramic views across the breadth of the harbou, with town centre to the foreground, which remains within just a few minutes' walking distance. Falmouth's shops, galleries, art centre and variety of restaurants being are 'at the foot of the hill' and all of the town's excellent leisure amenities, including many sports and sailing clubs, are all within easy reach.

A short walk along Wodehouse Terrace and down Grove Hill Crescent leads to one of Falmouth's railway stations with regular service to the nearby cathedral city of Truro, approximately twelve miles distant, the county's commercial, retailing, administrative and health centre, with onward rail connection to London (Paddington), journey time approximately four and a half hours. Falmouth's seafront, safe sandy beaches and numerous sub-tropical gardens are an approximate fifteen minute walk away; excellent golf courses are available at Falmouth, Budock Vean, Killiow and Truro, and a short drive across the county to Newquay Airport provides regular domestic flights to Gatwick and Stanstead Airports (flight time approximately sixty minutes).


A genuinely rare opportunity to acquire a four bedroom, two bathroom home, enjoying one of the finest outlooks from any detached property in Falmouth, also benefiting from driveway parking, detached garaging and level, harbour-facing gardens.

This detached house requires some refurbishment, although currently boasts two reception rooms, a separate kitchen, plus two double bedrooms and bathroom at ground floor level, with two further double bedrooms and second bathroom at first floor level. Consequently, those wishing to make their final move , could occupy the ground floor solely with occasional guest accommodation at first floor level, if required. Alternatively, the size and arrangement of the rooms is ideal for families and early retirement buyers alike.

Six of the nine rooms inside the property enjoy views of the water, with each aspect varying slightly, and encompassing Flushing, Falmouth Harbour, visitors yacht haven, Trefusis Point, Carrick Roads to St Just in Roseland, St Mawes Castle and the entrance to the Percuil River and Pendennis Castle.
