On the instructions of the co-executors and to be sold for the first time in over 50 years: a distinguished, detached, pre-war house, designed by the eminent architect, Corfield, providing well proportioned, extended three (possibly four) bedroom accommodation, enjoying far-reaching views to the outskirts of the town, and with glimpses of Falmouth Bay, set in large, attractively landscaped and superbly stocked gardens, with garage, off-road parking for 6 vehicles and immense block-built workshop with potential for conversion (subject to consents).


Built, we understand, during the 1920's and designed by the eminent local architect, C Russell Corfield ARIBA, 23 Trescobeas Road is a distinguished, detached, individual house on this conveniently located and highly regarded residential road, within large and beautifully stocked gardens which previously benefited from planning permission for the construction of a second, separate, detached, dwelling.

To be sold for the first time in over fifty years, the property provides well proportioned, extended and highly versatile accommodation, benefiting from double glazing and gas fired central heating, with the main rooms overlooking the attractive rear gardens and beyond, to the outskirts of Falmouth and Falmouth Bay in the distance.

The gardens are beautifully stocked and extremely sunny due to the south westerly aspect. Two large parking areas provide off-road space for six vehicles, in addition to which there is a detached garage, below which, there is an immense workshop (34' x 18' 5 ), which may offer potential for conversion to a self-contained flat, annexe or large home office, subject to any necessary consents.


A short walk along Trescobeas Road leads to Falmouth Hospital, health centre, secondary school, and nearby Kimberley Park Road, which leads directly into the town centre - an approximate ten minute walk away. The town of Falmouth continues to be voted as one of the best places to live anywhere in the UK (Sunday Times) and demand for properties in the area is exceptionally high, with more and more prospective purchasers wishing to move to Cornwall, and the Falmouth area in particular.


Planning permission was granted on 21 May 2008, for the erection of a new dwelling, 23a Trescobeas Road, application reference PA02/0705/08/R. Subsequently, an extension of time for this consent, was granted on 13 April 2011, which lapsed after three years.

The planning consent formerly granted, provided for a detached three bedroom house, which retained the existing garage, additional parking area and extensive workshop. Prospective purchasers should, if interested, make their own enquiries through Cornwall Council, should they wish to reinstate such permission.
