DESCRIPTION

Occupying an elevated position 'above' Greenbank, a beautiful house which has been completely and most tastefully remodelled, refitted and improved by the present owner, to provide superbly appointed and presented 4 bedroom accommodation, arranged over 3 storeys, with landscaped rear gardens, ample off-road parking, and fantastic views spanning the breadth of Falmouth Harbour to Flushing, the Carrick Roads and Roseland peninsula beyond.

THE PROPERTY

Purchased by our client in 2014, 4 Claremont Terrace has subsequently been the subject of a complete, sympathetic, extremely tasteful and no-expense-spared programme of refurbishment and improvement works to create what is, now, a beautiful family home of much charm and quality.

Works have included the installation of hand-built sash windows to the front elevation, new replacement flooring in mellow pine, with replastering, rewiring, replumbing, two new bath/shower rooms, one with under-floor heating and slate flooring, the installation of a two-zone comprehensive gas fired central heating system, and the thoughtful repositioning of the living rooms to the first floor, where the lounge, with log-burner, enjoys the stunning views and the beautiful family sized kitchen/breakfast room, with vaulted ceiling, opens directly onto the rear gardens.

All front-facing rooms, particularly from the first and second floors, enjoy the panoramic views over the properties 'below' and across the full breadth of Falmouth Harbour, with its constantly changing maritime activity, from The Greenbank Hotel to Flushing, surrounding countryside, Trefusis Point, the port area, deep sailing waters of the Carrick Roads, shoreline of The Roseland peninsula, entrance of the Percuil River and even out to sea!

Unusually for properties of this type, 4 Claremont Terrace benefits from a deep and attractively landscaped rear garden which is well enclosed to all sides and enjoys much sunshine due to the south-westerly aspect. A footpath leads through these gardens to a large parking area to the rear, sufficient for three vehicles, on which a timber garage previously stood and on which no doubt a replacement structure could be built, subject to consents.

In all, an exquisite family home which we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment for due to the continually rising demand for properties of this type and quality in the town.
