DESCRIPTION

A rare opportunity to acquire a 2 en-suite double bedroom garden apartment, with the benefit of additional/ancillary accommodation, which makes up one third of perhaps one of the most iconic and recognisable buildings in Falmouth.

THE PROPERTY

Flat 1 is a delightful, characterful, two double bedroom garden apartment, with the added benefit of additional/ancillary accommodation in the form of The Garden House, a previous outbuilding/potting shed, well manicured gardens, together with parking for two vehicles.

Internally, the property benefits from an open-plan kitchen/dining area with a bespoke, comprehensively fitted kitchen, a beautifully presented cosy living room with log-burning stove and windows overlooking the front elevation, whilst there are two double bedrooms, both with recently renovated en-suite facilities.

Externally, there is a former outbuilding/potting shed, which is currently utilised as additional accommodation, and we perfectly serve as guest accommodation or would be ideal, perhaps, for a dependent relative. The Garden House has an open-plan living/dining/kitchenette area, with shower room and double bedroom.

The Round House is perhaps one of the most recognisable, iconic buildings in Falmouth, and is located on the prime residential road of Trescobeas Road, ideally located for day-to-day amenities which Falmouth has to offer.

To appreciate the quality of accommodation on offer, an internal viewing is highly recommended at the earliest convenience.
