THE LOCATION

The port of Falmouth, recently voted as one of the best places to live anywhere in the UK, is just two miles distant, the cathedral city of Truro is ten miles away, the university campus at Tremough is within one mile, and regular bus and rail links provide regular and easy access throughout the area.

THE PROPERTY

On the instruction of the executors and to be sold for the first time in approximately thirty years, 4 Church Road is a substantial, detached, individual house, in need of general updating, but ideal for those prospective purchasers seeking a manageable project to create a comfortable family home or letting investment.

With exposed timber flooring, tall ceilings and all front-facing rooms enjoying a sunny southerly aspect with views to the town centre, the accommodation briefly comprises: a recessed entrance porch, reception hall with turning staircase, lounge with bay window, separate dining room (or fourth bedroom), large kitchen/breakfast room and utility area which, combined, extend to over 23' in breadth.

The front gardens are well enclosed by bordering and timber fencing and enjoy the sunny southerly aspect. The rear gardens are overgrown, are in need of landscaping, but include an aluminium framed greenhouse and block-built store.
