DESCRIPTION

A 3 double bedroom detached bungalow, to be sold for the first time since construction circa 1958 - a 'hidden gem', located at the end of a driveway off Melvill Road, whilst still being some 300m from Gyllyngvase Beach - a truly enviable location, within a delightful plot of 3 main garden areas which surround the property and enclosed by mature shrubbery and walling.

THE PROPERTY

'Little Selwood' is a three double bedroom bungalow, located just off Melvill Road on the southern side of Falmouth town centre. Internally, the property would benefit from some degree of modernisation and refurbishment but, once completed, would provide a truly superb family residence, located some 300m from Gyllyngvase Beach whilst still being within striking distance of all of Falmouth's amenities.

THE LOCATION

Melvill Road provides the ideal location for all amenities in the west of the town centre, including Events Square which houses the Maritime Museum and various public houses and restaurants. Boat mooring is available, subject to availability, at the nearby Customs House Quay; close at hand is Gyllyngvase Beach and Gylly Beach Cafe, with the South West Coast Path continuing across the seafront in one direction towards Swanpool, Maenporth and the mouth of the Helford River.
