DESCRIPTION

Occupying a superb position, just off Falmouth's highly sought-after seafront, yards from Castle Beach, a superb example of a substantial pre-war house, providing well proportioned and extremely versatile 4/5 bedroom accommodation, beautifully presented and appointed throughout, with sea views from the front elevation across the bay to coastline, ample parking in addition to a garage, and attractively landscaped courtyard and patio-style gardens.

THE PROPERTY

Built, we understand, in the 1930's and, subsequently, extended to the rear approximately 30 years ago, 23 Castle Drive is a superb, substantial, semi-detached house providing versatile and well proportioned 4/5 bedroom accommodation which is superbly appointed and presented throughout.

Enjoying views from the front elevation over Falmouth Bay to surrounding coastline, the gas centrally heated and double glazed accommodation offers an attractive blend of original and contemporary features which will appeal to both young family and retirement purchasers alike. From the entrance porch and reception hall, the house benefits from much natural light to the 2 large living rooms, family sized kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, ground floor bedroom or study, and ground floor bathroom.

An attractive turning staircase leads to the first floor landing, off which is the sea-facing master bedroom, 3 further bedrooms, shower room and separate WC. A loft ladder leads to extensive loft storage space, part of which is fully panelled and ideal for storage etc.

Ample parking for 3/4 vehicles exists to the front and side of the property, where a driveway leads to the attached garage, with electronic roller door, and internal courtesy door to the accommodation. The rear gardens are well enclosed to all sides, sheltered, sunny and attractively landscaped to provide sitting-out terraces with a greenhouse and store.

In all, a delightful family home, in one of the town's most sought-after areas, with the seafront, Castle Beach and Pendennis Point 'on the doorstep', and the town centre, with all its amenities, an approximate 10 minute walk away. An early viewing is therefore unhesitatingly recommended.
