DESCRIPTION

An exquisite house, one of just 7 in this small, select, little-known but most conveniently positioned cul-de-sac, within a 10/15 minute walk of The Moor, town centre, seafront and beaches, providing faultlessly presented and tastefully updated 3 double bedroomed accommodation, set within level, beautifully stocked and superbly landscaped gardens, with the benefit of driveway parking for several vehicles, in addition to a detached garage.

THE PROPERTY

3 Marlborough Court was purchased by our client in 2012, following which she completed a 'top-to-toe' refurbishment, as required, to create a magnificent home, faultlessly presented throughout, occupying a highly convenient position, with Falmouth's amenities all within easy reach.

Detached, of brick and block construction, with uPVC double glazing and comprehensive gas fired central heating, this magnificent home has many quality features including: a pillared entrance porch, spacious reception hall, refitted ground floor cloakroom, superbly proportioned lounge, separate dining room, refitted kitchen/breakfast room with full range of kitchen units in burford cream and appliances, and, to the first floor, a spacious landing, extremely large 'master' bedroom, two further double bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes, and a beautifully remodelled and reappointed bath/shower room with further white sanitary ware.

To the front of the house is a lovely level garden, and from an extensive tarmacadamed driveway, sufficient for several vehicles, Cornish granite pathways surround the property (to three sides), and lead to a deep garage with workshop area and electronic roller door. The gardens to the rear are a particular feature having been completely re-landscaped and fully enclosed to all sides by block walling and close-lap fencing. A level lawn is brick-edged and opens onto an extensive brick-paved patio; there is a fine array of camellias, hydrangeas, apple trees, fig tree and climbing wisteria, and a raised rose bed has been created along the rear boundary.

3 Marlborough Court has, consequently, become one of the finest houses of its type in the town and we, the vendor's Sole Agents, strongly recommend any interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment to avoid disappointment.

THE LOCATION

Marlborough Court is a little-known cul-de-sac, located off Marlborough Crescent, close to the top of Killigrew Street. Consequently, the town's excellent range of shops, schools and leisure amenities are all within easy reach, including a doctors surgery, tennis club and junior school on Western Terrace, and convenience stores on Albany Road. A regular bus service from the top of Killigrew Street and along Western Terrace leads into the town centre as well as to the seafront, which is just a ten/fifteen minute walk away. Penmere Railway Halt is also 'on the doorstep' and, within a few minutes' walk down Killigrew Street, is The Moor, the town centre and harbourside, with its range of bars, restaurants and artisan shops.

Having recently been voted by the readers of The Sunday Times as 'Britains best place to live', Falmouth continues to go from strength to strength and the availability of 3 Marlborough Court provides a surprisingly rare opportunity to purchase a detached house of quality, faultlessly and most tastefully presented throughout, in a 'hidden', yet extremely convenient position, with all amenities within walking distance.
