Located in a desirable, quiet, traffic-free location, secretly positioned between Woodlane and Florence Terrace, within easy walking distance of the town centre and seafront, a spacious 1960's detached house offering extremely generous, light and airy accommodation overlooking its own large walled gardens, with large garage, car port and parking for several cars. The property and gardens offer a unique blend of a central location, space and privacy.


An individual 1960's detached house, standing within beautifully stocked walled gardens providing privacy and seclusion within this traffic-free yet highly convenient position, tucked away at the head of a private lane leading from Woodlane Crescent, within easy walking distance (equidistant) from the town, seafront and Gyllyngvase Beach.

Rarely do we find a house in such a desirable 'in-town' location which combines the complete package of 'house, gardens, garage and parking', yet retaining peace and privacy within its surroundings. The gardens are a real feature of the property and benefit from one of the main areas at the front, providing a particularly attractive approach from the main double gates and parking spaces. To the side, a private semi-circular sun terrace leads directly from the main living room, and the side garden continues to the rear, again very private with later afternoon and evening sun.

The ground floor accommodation is extremely light, particularly within the spacious semi open-plan living areas, which feature an L-shaped triple aspect living/dining room with tall double glazed windows and door overlooking the lovely main garden area and accessing the south-facing side terrace, which catches sun all day. The kitchen to the rear of the house features broad south-west facing windows overlooking the kitchen garden area. The kitchen has the original units which are serviceable, but in need of updating. Similarly, the bathrooms have the original sanitary ware. The three upstairs bedrooms are all generous doubles and overlook the delightful gardens, with glimpses of the sea and harbour. Bedroom four is situated on the ground floor near to the bathroom.The four bedrooms are all generous doubles and overlook the delightful grounds, one of which is situated on the ground floor near to the bathroom and the first floor master bedroom enjoys quite unexpectedly good views to Falmouth Harbour and the ever-changing commercial shipping activity.

Overall, the accommodation is extremely versatile and would, for example, appeal to those requiring accommodation on the ground floor with the 'guest bedrooms allocated to the first floor, as well as family purchasers, gardeners or pet owners.

As adequate parking and garaging is becoming increasingly scarce within the central areas of Falmouth, those purchasers requiring such facilities, and indeed those wishing to store boats or caravans etc, should seriously consider this benefiting factor if contemplating a viewing.


A completely traffic-free location at the head of a private drive leading from Woodlane Crescent - set back from Woodlane itself, a tree-lined road which provides direct and easy access to the town centre, harbour, seafront and beaches, all of which lie within an approximate ten minute walk. The Woodlane campus of University College Falmouth is literally a three minute walk from the property. Falmouth has an excellent range of shops, commercial and leisure amenities including many restaurants, sailing clubs and regular rail link to the cathedral city of Truro, approximately twelve miles distant, with main-line connection to London (Paddington).
