DESCRIPTION

A fine example of a mid-terraced, Victorian town house, dating back to circa 1890, that has been thoughtfully modernised, extended and retains an abundance of charm and character, with the added benefit of far-reaching views to the harbour and low maintenance gardens. Beautiful Kimberley Park is literally around the corner and The Moor is within a 3 minute walk.

A small front garden sets the property back and provides a very attractive frontage. Granite steps rise to the front door which is partially covered by the original portico. On entering the property, the hallway features exposed wooden floorboards with door to the double reception room, entrance way to the extended kitchen/breakfast room, and stairs rising to the first floor landing. The living room features a continuation of the exposed wooden floorboards and has been fitted with an attractive wood-burner, with the dining room featuring doors to the garden. To the rear of the ground floor, there is a bright and sociable kitchen/breakfast room featuring attractive units, Velux window over-head and double doors to the rear garden. At first floor level there are three bedrooms, two of which are doubles , and separate bath and shower rooms. A second floor loft area features Velux windows and to the front, lovely views towards Falmouth Harbour can be enjoyed.

THE LOCATION

Located just moments from Falmouth's historic Kimberley Park and within a short walking distance of the town centre, Park Hill dates back to the Victorian era, and enjoys an incredibly convenient edge of town location. This particular house enjoys views over The Moor to the harbour below.
