DESCRIPTION

A substantial detached house offering well proportioned and adaptable accommodation, currently providing 5 double bedroom, 4 reception rooms and 3 bathrooms, the current layout easily providing a self-contained ground floor annexe, if required, with driveway parking and good sized surrounding gardens - available with immediate vacant possession and no onward chain.

THE PROPERTY

Constructed, we understand, during the 1920's, 101 Trescobeas Road is a substantial house, located close to the western fringe of Falmouth and within walking distance of nearby junior and secondary schooling.

A gated entrance opens onto a broad tarmacadamed forecourt, which provides off-road parking for several vehicles, and surrounding gardens to all four sides, well enclosed by stone walling, timber fencing and mature hedging. From the driveway, wide semi-circular slate steps lead up to the main sheltered entrance and into the spacious reception hall, a particularly impressive introduction to the property, with broad turning staircase to the first floor landing and many glazed casement doors in authentic art-deco style, all with chrome furnishings. Three reception rooms across the rear of the house overlook the gardens, including a triple aspect sitting room with part barrelled ceiling and fireplace, conservatory with ceramic tiled flooring and doors opening onto the enclosed garden, and versatile double aspect dining room. From the well appointed kitchen, a door leads to a utility room - at this point, the property could easily be divided, providing a four bedroom, three reception room and two bathroom main house, with a self-contained annexe (the utility room could create a kitchen for the annexe), living room with private entrance off, double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Please note - the 'annexe' has recently been completed refurbished.

A recently appointed bathroom can be found off the reception hall with, to the first floor, a further family bathroom/WC with jacuzzi bath, serving the four double bedrooms to the main accommodation, three of which enjoy far-reaching views to Falmouth Bay, and all of which are reached off the spacious landing.

The surrounding gardens are of a good size, well enclosed and, all in all, with the substantial and adaptable accommodation, 101 Trescobeas Road is a size and style of property which is increasingly hard to find in today's market and therefore, as the vendors' Sole Agent, an early viewing appointment is highly advised.

THE LOCATION

Number 101 Trescobeas Road is ideally located for those with families, being within easy walking distance of the nearby secondary school and junior schools, along Bickland Water Road, at St Francis and St Mary's. A regular bus service leads into Falmouth's town centre, an approximate twenty minute walk away, and which offers a full range of retail and commercial facilities as well as excellent leisure amenities including a large variety of restaurants, sports clubs, art centre, galleries and National Maritime Museum. Safe sandy bathing beaches are available at Gyllyngvase, Swanpool and Maenporth and beautiful walks abound in the area, whether around nearby Argal Reservoir, along the South West Coast Path, or along the tree-lined banks of the Fal and Helford Rivers.

The cathedral city of Truro, the county's commercial, retailing, administrative, health and educational centre, is approximately twelve miles distant and can be reached by regular bus and rail services as well as by road.
