DESCRIPTION

On the instruction of the executors and to be sold for the first time in over 35 years, a well-proportioned, extended bungalow, providing 3-bedroomed accommodation with gas central heating and double glazing, set in this small, sought-after cul-de-sac on the western outskirts of Falmouth, benefiting from garaging with additional off-road parking, good-sized gardens to both front and rear, and lovely far-reaching views over the town.

THE PROPERTY

In our client's family's ownership for over 35 years, Number 11 Roscarrack Close occupies an attractive setting, close to the head of this small, sought-after cul-de-sac, with lovely views enjoyed from the rear elevation over the property's own garden to the town and Pendennis Castle in the distance.

To the front, there is a deep garden laid mainly to lawn, and in addition to an attached garage there is off-road driveway parking for a further three/four vehicles. The gardens to the rear are a particular feature, being well enclosed to all boundaries and featuring a raised 'courtyard', broad terrace, greenhouse, timber store and workshop/potting shed.

The accommodation benefits from gas fired central heating and double glazing to accommodation which briefly comprises: entrance hall, split level living room with dining and lounge areas, kitchen/breakfast room, large utility room, three bedrooms and a bathroom/WC.

The property would now benefit from some degree of updating and tidying of the gardens etc., but with the shortage of bungalows in Falmouth being well documented, we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment.
