DESCRIPTION

Located on the seaward side of Gyllyngvase Terrace, close to the seafront and within just a few moments' walk of Gyllyngvase Beach, a substantial 3-storey semi-detached house, enjoying views over Falmouth Bay to The Lizard peninsula, providing superbly well proportioned 7 bedroom, 3 reception room and 3 bath/shower room accommodation, with 2 gated driveways providing off-road parking, and delightful southerly-facing patio and garden.

THE PROPERTY

Constructed, we understand, circa 1920's, 'Carantock' is a substantial semi-detached house, occupying a fine position on this, one of the town's most popular residential roads, just off the seafront and within a few moments' walk of Gyllyngvase Beach.

Facing south to the rear and enjoying fine views over the seafront properties, to Falmouth Bay and the unspoilt shoreline of The Lizard peninsula, the property provides extensive and extremely versatile accommodation, having been run as a guest house in the past.

The substantial three-storey accommodation would benefit from a programme of updating, and currently provides a reception hallway, three spacious reception rooms and kitchen to the ground floor, four bedrooms, one en-suite, and two further bath/shower rooms to the first floor, and three further bedrooms on the second floor, two enjoying the views and one with access onto the second floor balcony.

To the front, 'Carantock' benefits from two gated driveways, with a rear courtyard with outside WC and utility room, the second driveway leads to the side entrance, providing off-road parking for two, possibly three vehicles, also leading to the delightful full width terrace and mature gardens with workshop, greenhouse, winter plant store and garden utility area.

The property could provide a substantial family home or lucrative investment within an area of Falmouth which is very much in demand and short supply in the current market, and it is without hesitation that, as the vendors' Sole Agents, an early viewing appointment is recommended without delay.

THE LOCATION

Gyllyngvase Terrace runs parallel with the seafront (Cliff Road), and a short walk along Gyllyngvase Terrace and down Gyllyngvase Road, which leads directly to Gyllyngvase Beach and, on, in either direction, across the seafront to Castle Beach and Pendennis Castle, or along the South West Coast Path towards Swanpool, Maenporth and beyond.

A nearby regular bus service provides direct and easy access into the town centre, an approximate fifteen minute walk away, which provides an excellent range of shopping, commercial and leisure amenities, including quayside bars, galleries and numerous restaurants etc. Falmouth Town railway halt is just a few minutes' walk away at the foot of Avenue Road, and doctors surgery, junior school, sub-tropical gardens and several gym and pool facilities are also within easy reach.
