Enjoying countryside and river views from the front and standing in an elevated position near Falmouth Marina on sought-after North Parade, an approximate 10-15 minute walk along Falmouth's picturesque harbourside to the town centre, a beautifully light and well proportioned detached dormer bungalow offering adaptable 2 double bedroomed, 2 reception roomed accommodation with the added attraction of planning permission to extend and reconfigure into a large and imposing 4-bedroomed detached house.


'Carnwidden' occupies an elevated position on sought-after North Parade - the river and harbourside road which leads from Falmouth Marina to Greenbank and the town centre.

Excellent water sports amenities are, consequently, very close at hand with Falmouth's main marina and the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club both within a few minutes' walking distance. The nearby by town centre, an approximate ten/fifteen minute walk away, provides a complete range of shopping and commercial facilities including numerous quayside bars, restaurants, galleries and art centre.

Falmouth boasts a prize winning selection of sub-tropical gardens, safe sandy bathing beaches, beautiful seafront walks, the National Maritime Museum and excellent public transport amenities with both bus and rail services to the nearby cathedral city of Truro, approximately twelve miles distant.


Dating back, we understand, to circa 1929, 'Carnwidden' is a most attractive, detached, double-fronted dormer bungalow which enjoys an elevated, sunny, position on popular North Parade, with an attractive and interesting wooded outlook and river and countryside views from the first floor.

Planning permission - application number ref: PA16/03535 was granted on the 18 April 2016 for the extension and alteration of the property to a four-bedroomed detached house of much style and appeal.

From the front elevation, granite retaining walls with gate opens onto steps which rise onto beautifully stocked and tended front gardens, with lawn and shrub borders and steps which rise to the main entrance.

A fine reception porch provides an intriguing entrance to the property with tiled flooring and part panelled and obscure patterned glazed door with side panel and fan light which opens into an elegant reception hall with panelled doors to the ground floor rooms and turning staircase rising to the first floor.

To the front of the property there are two reception rooms, a sitting room and separate dining room, both with broad double glazed windows to the front elevation enjoying the wooded outlook over the beautifully stocked front gardens, with river glimpses through the trees.

Overlooking the rear gardens is a particularly well appointed dual aspect kitchen which benefits from a full range of built-in appliances with rear door leading onto the attractive and well tended rear gardens. The ground floor bedroom and well appointed bathroom also lead from the entrance hallway with turning staircase leading to the first floor landing with eaves access and walk-in storage cupboard and door to the superb main dual aspect room with dormer window to the front elevation enjoying views over parts of the Penryn River and surrounding countryside.

In all, a quite exceptional and extremely elegant home of exceptional presentation and quality, benefiting from gas fired central heating and majority replacement uPVC double glazing, well worthy of an early viewing appointment through the owner's Sole Agents, Messrs Laskowski & Company.
