DESCRIPTION

A superb Victorian town house, retaining masses of original features throughout, complemented by a thorough yet sympathetic refurbishment and restoration of the interior with a contemporary feel, offering superb 4-bedroomed, 2 bath/shower roomed accommodation, with a delightful Mediterranean-style split level courtyard garden and detached garaging to the rear.

THE PROPERTY

Having been exceptionally well upgraded and refurbished in recent years, the interior feel is nothing short of exceptional, having been 'opened-up' on the ground floor to allow light to flow through the main living areas and provide a modernised feel.

A remarkable number of original period features still remain including fireplaces, ceiling cornice, dado rails, architraves, stained glass and panelled timber doors, staircase with handrail, ceiling roses, and timber sash windows, some of which have been replaced, insulation has been installed in the sub-floor areas of the main living rooms and hallway, and columned radiators provide a sympathetic upgrade to the modern heating system. Solar panels with an appealing 'feed-in' tariff back to the grid, provides a surprisingly good return.

A slightly raised front garden provides an attractive approach to the house, with well stocked flower beds, palm tree and small patio which overlooks 'leafy' Kimberley Park. To the rear, French doors lead directly from the kitchen to a delightful, private and sunny rear courtyard with attractive turning steps to a raised upper garden level, with double doors from the main bedroom also. This area catches sun throughout the day providing pedestrian access to the detached garage and Park Lane beyond.

In our opinion, 2 Park Terrace is one of the finest examples of a period Victorian town house in Falmouth, therefore should be viewed without hesitation to fully appreciate the stunning feel to the property, inside and out.
