DESCRIPTION

A mid-terrace cottage with many original features, conveniently located on popular Waterloo Road, close to Falmouth's town centre, harbourside, colleges and amenities, providing extended 2 bedroom (1 double and 1 single), 2 reception room accommodation, with first floor bathroom, enclosed rear courtyard-style garden and detached garaging.

THE PROPERTY

A traditional mid-terrace cottage, providing two separate reception rooms and galley-style kitchen to the ground floor, with two bedrooms, one double and one single, and three-piece bathroom suite to the first floor.

Externally, there is an enclosed courtyard-style garden with a useful outbuilding - 6'0 (1.83m) x 5'10 (1.77m) - incorporating an outside WC (not included in previous measurement) with rear gated access to the rear lane and good sized detached garaging - a real rarity it this central town location.

The cottage is offered for sale with the undoubted benefit of no onward chain and immediate vacant possession. Internally, the property retains many period features including picture rails, fireplace in the sitting room and sash windows, with the benefit of a modern updated gas fired central heating system and further potential for improvement if required.

As a permanent home or investment, we strongly recommend all interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment, bearing in mind the continued high demand and short supply of properties of this type in the current market place.

THE LOCATION

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 all very close at hand, together with the water sports facility centre at the bustling harbourside which includes the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club, dinghy sailing club, marina and National Maritime Museum, on the Events Square at the eastern end of the harbour. Falmouth's numerous sub-tropical gardens, safe sandy bathing beaches and beautiful clifftop walks are also nearby, as is Falmouth town railway station which leads to Truro, approximately twelve miles distant, which connects with the main Penzance to London (Paddington) line.
