DESCRIPTION

With quite unexpected harbour views from the first floor, a charming and Grade II Listed gothic-style Victorian town house, with incredibly light accommodation, full of original features in a superb 'tucked-away' period terrace within easy walking distance of the town centre, seafront and beaches.

THE LOCATION

Albert Cottages is a quiet tucked-away terrace of period houses, positioned immediately behind Wodehouse Terrace and, consequently, a highly sought-after residential area, a few moments' walk from the town centre and harbourside and within an approximate fifteen minute walk of the seafront and beaches. This property enjoys captivating views from the first floor over the harbour to Trefusis Point, the port area, Pendennis and St Mawes Castles, the deep sailing waters of the Fal Estuary, and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula beyond Falmouth Bay is even visible.
