DESCRIPTION

Enjoying one of Falmouth's finest views, looking directly over the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club and constant marine activity within Falmouth's inner harbour, from Flushing to the Carrick Roads, a tall, elegant, 3-storey house, on one of the town's finest period terraces, within easy walking distance of the town centre and excellent sailing amenities, providing highly characterful and versatile, 5-bedroomed accommodation, with delightful, walled and extremely well stocked, sunny, west-facing rear gardens.

THE PROPERTY

Located on one of Falmouth's finest period terraces, 9 Dunstanville Terrace dates, we understand, from the early 18th Century and was subject to major modification in the early 19th Century. Throughout, the property retains a real and authentic sense of history and character, and is, undoubtedly, one of the finest properties of its type in the sought-after harbour town of Falmouth.

Indeed, the views from the property are, simply, outstanding; directly overlooking the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club, destination for many ocean-going sailors and the start/finish line for much classic racing, the panoramic, unobstructed, 180 vista extends from the Greenbank Hotel, Little Falmouth and the picturesque village of Flushing, and across the constant marine activity within Falmouth's inner harbour, to Trefusis Point, the port area, deep sailing waters of the Carrick Roads and unspoilt shoreline of The Roseland peninsula beyond.

A traditional 'box' glazed porch provides a sheltered entrance to the property, opening into a particularly fine reception hall with tall skirtings, panelled hardwood doors, moulded architraves, tessellated tiled flooring, rear door to the courtyard garden, and particularly elegant, broad, easy rising turning staircase, with traditional, tall, small pane windows to the rear elevation, leading to the galleried first and second floor landings over. There is a ground floor bedroom with bay window to the front elevation and en-suite shower room, ideal for visiting guests etc; together with a 'self-contained' flat, ideal as a source of letting income if required, with harbour-facing lounge, large double bedroom (with concealed Cornish range), kitchen and shower room.

The main living accommodation is located on the first floor where a 20' lounge and 17' separate dining room both, again, enjoy magnificent unobstructed harbour views. An adjacent kitchen combines to provide exceptional entertaining space and benefits from a fine marble fireplace, ornate ceiling cornice and double French doors opening onto a particularly sheltered and sunny south and west-facing patio and terrace.

Accessed at mid-landing levels are a shower room/WC and family bathroom, serving three second floor bedrooms, all of which enjoy the magnificent and constantly changing marine outlook.

Outside, there is a pretty rear courtyard with stone flag paving, laundry room and part open-fronted workshop, easily enclosed for those requiring a studio or similar. Steps rise from the courtyard onto a paved and cobbled terrace which extends the width of the rear of the property, and beyond which there is a surprisingly large, well stocked, secure walled garden with gently sloping lawn and wide array of flowering shrubs and specimen trees.

In all, an incredibly charming and highly versatile home, perfectly positioned for Falmouth's town centre and excellent sailing amenities, enjoying one of the finest views imaginable. We, the vendors' Sole Agents, have no hesitation in recommending interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment.
