DESCRIPTION

Standing on one of Falmouth's most admired harbour-facing terraces, a 4-storey freehold property with lovely views to the front, retaining the original and particularly deep rear garden with double parking leading from the rear lane, and space for construction of a garage, if required. The accommodation is currently arranged as 2 apartments, each with their own lease, perfect for 2 part families or re-installation as one house.

THE PROPERTY

Having been completely refitted approximately 8/9 years ago including re-installation of the floors, joists, ceilings, electrics, plumbing etc the building is now arranged as 2 duplex apartments, each occupying 2 floors and both enjoying quite superb harbour views from the front. Both 2 storey apartments feature 2 bedrooms each and could be incorporated back into one 4 storey house if required- we understand many internal walls are 'partition'.

The accommodation now provides a particularly modern feel, with each 'unit' accessed off a raised communal entrance door, through to the reception hallway where there is access to the lower apartment and stairs rising to the upper two floors. Each apartment has the benefit of a 99 year lease but the entire freehold of the building including the deep garden and parking to the rear, is also included in the sale. With some alteration, we believe the two units could be incorporated into one, four-storey house with removal of various internal walls, many (or possibly all) of which are partition and of timber construction with plaster boarding.

THE LOCATION

Erisey Terrace is, by reputation, one of most desirable terraces within Falmouth, mainly because of its elevated position above the town and subsequent fabulous harbour views, but also because of its particularly convenient location.

Excellent sailing waters of the River Fal are in abundance, with the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club just a few minutes walk away, as are excellent shopping, commercial and leisure amenities in Falmouth. Three sandy beaches can be found within a few minutes drive, with beautiful interconnecting coastal walks. The cathedral city of Truro is approximately twelve miles distance, where there is a main line rail link to London (Paddington), as well as a regular rail service to Falmouth town itself. There are numerous primary and secondary schools also very nearby, not forgetting also the golf courses which are available at Budock Vean, Falmouth, Killiow and Truro.
