  • Versatile accommodation
  • 3-storey
  • Close to town centre
  • Popular student location
  • HMO Certificate
  • Small rear courtyard
  • 6 bedrooms
  • No onward chain


Located in the increasingly popular 'student quarter' of Falmouth, a few minutes' walk from The Moor and town centre, a substantial 3-storey semi-detached house, currently providing 5/6 letting bedrooms, with a sociable open-plan living area, benefiting from a House of Multiple Occupancy certificate, and being sold with the benefit of no onward chain.


Occupying a highly central, yet quiet position, within a few minutes' walk of The Moor, the town centre and harbourside, an adaptable semi-detached house, perfect for buy-to-let investors (as it benefits from an HMO licence for 6 bedrooms), family purchasers or those prospective purchasers requiring over 1,200sq of accommodation. The harbour glimpses from the front of the ground and first floor are a real surprise, and the outlook from the top rear bedroom is quite stunning, with views over Flushing and the harbour.

The accommodation is both extensive and adaptable and arranged over three floors, offering centrally heated and double glazed accommodation, HMO compliant, with appropriate fire alarm systems and fire doors etc; during the 2018/1019 academic year the property generated a gross income of £22,665.

An entrance hall leads to a ground floor bedroom or additional living room (if required) and spacious kitchen/diner/living room to the rear, with external door to the lower rear courtyard. The first floor accommodation features three bedrooms and a large bathroom/WC and the top (third) floor landing leads to two bedrooms, and a shower room in between.


Waterloo Road is conveniently located between Trelawney Road and Clare Terrace in Falmouth's Victorian heart, a few minutes' walk from the town centre, harbourside, colleges and amenities.

The town's excellent range of shops, services and restaurants etc are therefore very close at hand, together with water sports facilities centred around the bustling harbourside, which includes the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club, dinghy sailing club, marina and National Maritime Museum, on Events Square at the eastern end of the harbour.

Falmouth's numerous sub-tropical gardens, safe bathing beaches and beautiful clifftop walks are also nearby, as is Falmouth town's railway station which leads to Truro, approximately twelve miles distant, which connects with the main Penzance to London (Paddington) line.
