DESCRIPTION

Within a few moments walk from Castle Beach, Pendennis Point and Falmouth seafront, a delightful former coastguard cottage, occupying a quiet, secure cul-de-sac setting with no-through traffic, providing extended, light and extremely well presented 3 bedroom accommodation, with private off-road parking for 2 vehicles, partial bay views from the first floor and well enclosed, sheltered rear gardens.

THE PROPERTY

A former coastguard cottage dating from the 1800's, occupying a particularly sought-after, quiet, secure cul-de-sac setting, just off Falmouth's seafront, a few moments' from Castle Beach and picturesque Pendennis Point.

Extended, improved and modernised, the property now provides well proportioned, light and attractive accommodation, superbly presented throughout, with replacement uPVC double glazing and gas fired central heating.

A gravelled front forecourt provides a sunny, south west-facing sitting-out area, together with a traditional entrance to the main accommodation. A broad entrance hall opens into a large refitted ground floor family bathroom/WC and into the main 'double' living room with 'separate' dining and sitting areas which retains a beautifully conditioned original Cornish Range oven (now ornamental) and double aspect windows to the front. Double casement doors lead into a double aspect kitchen with many windows overlooking the rear gardens.

All three first floor bedrooms are well proportioned; two of which enjoy partial views to Falmouth Bay and out to sea, and one bedrooms benefits from an 'en-suite' WC. From the first floor, views are enjoyed from the front elevation over and between neighbouring properties to Falmouth Bay and, obliquely, to the town centre. The rear gardens are well enclosed, highly secure and feature a broad and raised paved patio garden for ease of maintenance and well stocked borders featuring colourful shrubs and plants.

These former coastguard cottages off Castle Drive have become immensely popular over recent years, as prospective purchasers find their convenience, quality of construction, character, security and proximity to the beaches and seafront, impossible to find elsewhere in the town. Consequently, we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers arrange an early appointment to view this delightful cottage on Bay View Crescent, in our opinion, one of the finest of its type.

THE LOCATION

Bay View Crescent is a private cul-de-sac, off Castle Drive, with each property owning the gravelled forecourt and driveway to the front, on which off-road private parking is provided for two vehicles, together with access to the other houses in the cul-de-sac. Highly secure and with no-through traffic, a short walk leads onto Falmouth's seafront (Cliff Road), adjacent to which is Castle Beach and the picturesque circular walk around Pendennis Point and the grounds of Pendennis Castle, from where some of the finest views can be enjoyed in the west country, across Falmouth Bay, to the shoreline of The Lizard peninsula, out to sea, across to St Anthony's Headland, St Mawes Harbour and Castle, Falmouth's active port, inner harbour, Flushing, Trefusis Point, and along the length of the Fal Estuary (Carrick Roads), one of the world's largest natural harbours.
