DESCRIPTION

On the instructions of the co-executors and to be sold for the first time in 36 years: an almost detached (garage-linked) bungalow providing dated, but easily improved, 2 bedroom accommodation, occupying large corner plot gardens with driveway parking in addition to an attached garage and sunny rear patio, situated within just a few moments walk of Cliff Road, Castle Beach, the beautiful circular walk around Pendennis Point, and nearby Bar Road with its direct level access into the town centre.

THE PROPERTY

16 Pendennis Rise is to be sold for the first time since 1984 and provides an extremely rare opportunity to purchase an almost detached bungalow in this highly sought-after area, just off the seafront, in one of Cornwall's most sought-after towns.

In need of general refurbishment, the property provides an ideal 'project' to refit and decorate to ones own standard. The current accommodation comprises a glazed entrance porch, with almost completely level access from the front parking area, a sun lounge with patio doors onto the rear terrace, well proportioned double aspect living room, inner hall, kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom/WC and separate cloakroom/WC.

The attached garage is sufficiently deep to provide a utility area, with a courtesy door opening onto the rear patio which enjoys a sunny and extremely sheltered position. Furthermore, steps lead from this terrace to an extensive lower ground floor area, much of which benefits from full head height, with scope for conversion to further accommodation if required, subject to consents, or, simply, continued use as a very large store and workshop etc.

THE LOCATION

16 Pendennis Rise really is one of the most conveniently located bungalows you can find anywhere in Falmouth; not only is the seafront 'on your doorstep', but both regular rail and bus services are at the bottom of the hill, less than two minutes walk away, and nearby Bar Road provides a completely level walk into the town with Events Square, the National Maritime Museum, harbourside, shops and various bars and restaurants, all just a ten/fifteen minute walk away.

An early viewing appointment is strongly recommended.
