Ideally positioned 'around the corner' from reputed Wodehouse Terrace, and within walking distance of the town centre, harbourside, seafront and beaches, a highly adaptable 3-storey, 4-bedroomed, double reception roomed Victorian town house, with superb harbour/bay views from the second floor, much retained character and traditional features throughout, and also featuring a lovely family kitchen/breakfast room.


Due to the versatility of the characterful accommodation, in such a convenient position, in our opinion, this house will appeal to a wide range of prospective buyers including families, young professionals, investors and second time purchasers alike.

The house retains many original character features including much original joinery with authentic exposed timber floorboards, dado rails, fireplace, panelled doors and part galleried staircase with turned balustrade. Tall, mainly sash-style windows provide much natural light with views from the top floor of much of the inner harbour and Falmouth Bay.

A broad timber entrance door opens into a porch and into a deep reception hall, which leads to the double 'opened-up' lounge and dining rooms with fireplace and broad triple sash window to the front elevation. Within the dining area features another sash window to the sun room to the rear. A family sized kitchen/breakfast room which has been tastefully fitted with a comprehensive range of sympathetic kitchen units, adjacent to which is a sun room lean-to extension with window from the dining room and double doors to the rear decked garden.

To the first floor, an attractive split level landing provides access to a mid level bathroom above the kitchen which is attractively appointed, the main landing leads to three bedrooms, two of which are doubles with a generous study/third bedroom. A particularly light and spacious fourth bedroom is located to the second floor which features a skylight window to the front and a walk-in dormer window to the rear with fine view across parts of the inner harbour and Falmouth Bay.

The garden to the rear is small and decked for ease of maintenance, catching sun during the morning and middle of the day.


Situated within one of the older terraces along Marlborough Road, which is, undoubtedly, one of the most highly regarded locations within Falmouth with its fine terraces of late Georgian and Victorian houses. Junior and secondary schooling facilities are nearby at King Charles and Trescobeas, many faculties of the Combined University of Cornwall are within a few moments' walking distance along Woodlane, and the town's shopping centre, harbourside, seafront and beaches are all within an approximate ten minute walk.
