Spectacularly sited, a most unusual five bedroomed (all with en-suite facilities) town cottage perched above Falmouth harbourside enjoying from several rooms and spaces, magnificent everchanging views of Falmouth harbour, Flushing and Trefusis Headland. The property also benefits from a separate ground floor studio apartment which could be incorporated into the main home. Believed to date from 1836 this home has a variety of potential uses, having been used as a high-quality holiday let and also a permanent home.
To find a home so centrally sited within Falmouth enjoying breathtaking views and with the high-quality sizeable accommodation on offer is very rare, the views are enjoyed from the main reception room, two bedrooms and the ‘upper deck’ reception space as well as a balcony off the main bedroom and a further large terrace/balcony off the ‘upper deck’. The property has been subjected to a renovation program in 2017/2018 which incorporates a sprinkler system, plumbing, replacement roofing, new bathrooms and sanitary ware, the installation of the roof terrace/balcony and wiring amongst other things.
The studio apartment is situated off King Charles Quay, an integral door into the main residence exists but presently is rated and accessed separately.
The property is fully double glazed and fitted with high quality replacement windows in keeping with the character of the home and also has gas central heating. Parking is available in the single garage, whilst the owners also rent a parking space on the adjacent quay which may be transferred to the new owner by arrangement and a fee payable to Falmouth Haven.
A literal ‘stone’s throw’ from King Charles Quay, the new owners will enjoy the waterside life in the heart of Falmouth. Quay Street is tucked off Church Street – one of the towns main streets and is home to a few exclusive homes as well as restaurants, a Public House and other commercial premises.
King Charles Quay and Falmouth Haven are a few footsteps from your front door. Moorings are available from Falmouth Haven.
The town of Falmouth stands on one of the largest natural harbours in the world, the property enjoys views over the inner harbour with a constantly changing marine vista to enjoy.
