DESCRIPTION

Within a 10 minute walk of the town centre and harbourside, a substantial 4-bedroomed semi-detached house, set back from Kimberley Park Road by a generous front garden, with large lawned gardens to the rear also, providing extended and versatile accommodation including 2 formal reception rooms in addition to a large kitchen/breakfast room, also benefiting from attached garaging and (extendable) driveway parking.

THE PROPERTY

Believed to be constructed in the 1930's with a typical broad bay window to the front living room, this four-bedroomed semi-detached house stands on a much larger than average plot which features particularly good sized gardens to the front and rear - perfect for families, gardeners or pet owners. Various upgrades include a recently refitted kitchen/breakfast room from Howdens, uPVC double glazing and mains gas fired central heating provided by a modern Worcester Bosch boiler.

The formal dining room and kitchen both overlook the rear gardens and could be incorporated to provide a superb family sized room, although the existing kitchen has been recently modernised and currently provides space for a breakfast table. An extension to the first floor above the garage provides the fourth bedroom, formally another living space for dependent/independent relatives.

In all, a sizeable property inside and out with ample garage/parking facilities (and potential to enlarge further) something which is becoming increasingly rare this close to the town centre.

THE LOCATION

Kimberley Park Road is perfectly positioned for easy access to Falmouth's town centre, Falmouth's schools and main bus routes in and out of the town. Within a short walk is the beautiful Kimberley Park, and sandy beaches are within a few minutes' drive at Gyllyngvase, Swanpool and Maenporth. Local primary schools are also nearby, as is the expanding university campus at Tremough, Penryn. Falmouth's golf course and the excellent sailing waters of the Fal Estuary are also close at hand, and the cathedral city of Truro is approximately eleven miles distant.
