DESCRIPTION

One of Falmouth's intriguing period terraced homes, an absolutely charming and highly characterful 4-storey property, part of an elegant Grade II Listed late-Georgian terrace, perfectly positioned for the nearby seafront, beaches and within a level walk of the harbourside and town centre, providing versatile and well proportioned 5 double bedroom, 2 reception and 3 bath/shower room accommodation, with a host of original features and deep, southerly-facing garden and detached double garage - viewing unhesitatingly recommended.

THE PROPERTY

Understood to date back to the 1830's, 5 Bar Terrace constitutes part of one of Falmouth's finest period residence, on sought-after Bar Terrace, perfectly positioned for the nearby seafront, beaches and within a level walk of Falmouth's town centre and harbourside - all within just a few moments' walk away.

Sub-divided during the Victorian period, the property provides charming and highly characterful accommodation, arranged over four storeys and providing a flexible arrangement, with the lower ground floor self-contained 'studio' providing income potential, or for a dependent relative/teenager, although a connecting staircase still connects to the main accommodation.

From the front garden, with mature borders and gravelled sitting-out terraces, elevated above Bar Terrace, granite steps rise to the impressive Doric-columned entrance porch which, in turn, opens into the reception hall, with further Doric scalloped internal column. Indeed, we understand this area was extended to provide the entrance during the Victorian times.

Intriguing inner hallways and lobby areas, which retain much character, including tall skirting boards, moulded cornicing, and broad panelled doors, with moulded architraves, lead to the superbly proportioned living room with tall ceiling, open fireplace and tall sash window to the front elevation. From the dining room, again with tall ceiling, a well appointed dual aspect kitchen enjoys a view over the gardens and additional connecting door to the rear porch. From which, panelled doors lead to the superbly appointed shower room/WC and a further door opens to a stairwell, with steps leading to the lower ground floor study, with connecting door to the well proportioned and versatile lower ground floor, with superb appointed bathroom. At first floor level, a split level landing leads to three double bedrooms and to an attractive family bathroom/WC, with contemporary white suite. A panelled door from this landing opens, with turning staircase, to the second floor and the triple aspect fourth bedroom.

The deep rear gardens are another attractive feature of the property, enjoying a sunny southerly aspect, and are well enclosed and mature. The gardens have been landscaped and comprise three distinct areas, adjacent to the rear is a broad timber decked sitting-out terrace with part covered area, with path leading passed a 'chicken run' and onto a children's play area with slide, swing, monkey bars, etc, before leading to the detached double garage, with double doors opening onto the gardens with further hardstanding and electric roller door opening onto the rear lane.

5 Bar Terrace is, undoubtedly, one of the most appealing and 'complete' period town houses available on the open market at this time within Falmouth, and we therefore strongly recommend all prospective purchasers in search of a family home of much character and location, arrange an early viewing appointment.

THE LOCATION

5 Bar Terrace stands at the end of Bar Terrace, a level walk from the harbourside and town centre in which can be found Falmouth's excellent range of shops, commercial and leisure amenities, including varied restaurants and numerous sports and sailing clubs.

Also within easy walking distance is Falmouth's picturesque seafront, with walk around Pendennis Point, safe bathing beaches and footpath, to the South West Coast Path, which leads to Swanpool, Maenporth and the mouth of the Helford River beyond. The cathedral city of Truro, the county's administrative, legal, retail and commercial centre, is approximately twelve miles distant, and is easily accessed by road, bus and rail from Falmouth, as well as by seasonal passenger ferry along the beautiful tree-lined River Fal.
