DESCRIPTION

Occupying an excellent position on this highly sought-after, tree-lined avenue, a few minutes' walk from Falmouth's town centre, harbourside, seafront and beaches, a substantially extended 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom detached house, offering highly versatile living accommodation, standing within front and rear garden areas which, to the front, provide off-road driveway parking and, to the rear, are well enclosed, sheltered and sunny.

THE PROPERTY

An attractive and extremely well cared for detached house, providing three bedroom accommodation, situated in one of the town's most appealing and conveniently situated roads, almost equidistant from the town centre and beaches, this tree-lined avenue needs little introduction.

Since its construction during the 1930's the layout of this attractive home has been much improved; the kitchen and dining room have been opened-up to a more modern way of living, with this lovely room overlooking the rear garden. Likewise, the double aspect living room overlooks the beautifully kept front garden. Also, a ground floor extension to the side provides a fourth bedroom or study. Some prospective purchasers may wish to know the previous owner utilised the ground floor bedroom and installed a shower room within the adjacent cloakroom/WC to provide 'one level' living. A traditional staircase within the entrance hall rises to the first floor landing, where all three bedrooms, separate WC and bathroom can be located, with the master bedroom enjoying the tree-lined aspect to the front and even a glimpse of the harbour in the Winter months. We understand the attic has possible scope for further accommodation, subject to necessary consents. The house benefits from central heating and quality uPVC double glazing featuring small pane glazing.

A deep well stocked front garden sets the house back from the road and could provide further off-road parking, if required. The rear garden is sheltered and sunny and comprises a broad patio with double doors from the kitchen and study/bedroom four, an upper lawn bordered by well stocked flower beds and a recently constructed timber outbuilding/shed for additional storage.

THE LOCATION

Arwenack Avenue is one of Falmouth's most sought-after residential roads, by virtue of its highly convenient yet 'tucked-away' location, within just a few minutes' walk of the harbourside, town centre and seafront. Within approximately 300 yards is The Dell railway halt, which provides a regular branch-line service to the cathedral city of Truro, approximately twelve miles distant, with onward connection to London (Paddington) - journey time approximately four hours.

Beautiful walks 'on the doorstep' of the property lead around Castle Drive to Pendennis Point and Castle, to numerous sub-tropical gardens, along the picturesque waterfront, as well as along the seafront where the South West Coast Path leads to the neighbouring coves at Swanpool, Maenporth and beyond. Water sports facilities are particularly well catered for, with the sheltered waters of the Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay widely recognised as perhaps the best day-sailing waters in the country. Town centre facilities include a full range of shops and banks, together with many restaurants, bars and leisure amenities including a cinema, National Maritime Museum, sports clubs and bowling alley etc.
