DESCRIPTION

To be sold for the first time in nearly 50 years, a cherished family home, constructed for the previous and only other owners in the late 1930's, dramatically improved, remodelled and refurbished by the present owners, providing light, well proportioned and superbly appointed 4 bedroom accommodation, in an elevated position 'above Greenbank', enjoying oblique views to the harbour, Carrick Roads and Roseland peninsula, within walking distance of the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club, town centre and harbourside.

THE PROPERTY

Built, we understand, in the late 1930's for a well known local family, bought by our clients 48 years ago and, hence, now to be sold for only the second time since construction.

'Tredeague' has been the subject of a constant and ongoing programme of improvement and refurbishment works, to now provide exceptionally well presented and appointed three/four bedroom accommodation, with replacement uPVC double glazing and comprehensive gas fired central heating throughout.

The light and well proportioned accommodation briefly comprises: a spacious central hallway, double aspect lounge with fireplace, separate dining room or fourth bedroom, ground floor double bedroom, reappointed shower room, family sized and comprehensively appointed kitchen/breakfast room, and useful utility room. Upstairs, there are two further bedrooms, including a 'master' suite with private bathroom and large dormer window to the front elevation which provides an attractive sitting area with lovely views over the town and harbour to the Carrick Roads and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula beyond.

To the front of the property there are attractively stocked borders, together with full width paved terracing, with pathways to either side leading to the utility room and rear gardens. The gardens at the rear are a particular feature, being extremely sunny, sheltered and private, comprising further paved terracing, granite retaining walls, a raised lawned area, paved and decked terraces, a small workshop, cedar store and large summerhouse with veranda and power connected.

Unrestricted on-street parking is readily available to the front of the property although, if required, prospective purchasers should note the vendors have a garage nearby and which is available by separate negotiation.

THE LOCATION

Meadowbank Road is situated toward the top of Symons Hill, the foot of which is directly opposite The Greenbank Hotel, and just beyond which is the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club. To the other side of Symons Hill, Frobisher and Penwerris terraces lead to the top of Falmouth High Street, which offers an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants, cafes and individual shops, at the foot of which is the town centre. The town offers junior and secondary schooling in addition to the varied faculties based at the university campus at Tremough. Regular public transport facilities are readily available, including to the cathedral city of Truro, twelve miles distant, with main-line rail link to London (Paddington). Sandy beaches, sub-tropical gardens and beautiful coastal walks further contribute to the life-style Falmouth is renowned to offer - having been voted as one of the best places to live anywhere in the UK over recent years. Whether as a family or retirement home, we therefore strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers arrange an early appointment to view 'Tredeague'.
