Full description

Stratton Terrace is a valuable and much sought after residential address, comprising a rich mixture of individual homes set alongside Falmouths' river and harbour fronting approach road, just yards from the water and one third of a mile from town.

Number 5 is a delightful and prominent Grade II listed stone fronted, semi detached house built in the 1700's, whose pretty period fasçade hides exciting and hidden secrets within. The property is well proportioned and elegant, retaining period features and detailing whilst melding an inspired scheme of reconfiguration and improvement, to create an outstanding and striking home with 'wow' factor by the spadeful. 

The house is set nicely back from Stratton Terrace by an established garden with distinctive and beautiful Judas tree.

Accommodation is arranged on three floors with three double bedrooms and family bathroom downstairs. Wide stairs ascend to a fine columned landing through to the open plan reception space which measures over 50' in length. The impressive sitting room, with its engineered oak floor and 'Clearview' multifuel stove, looks out through large multipane sash windows to a glorious and constantly changing water view encompassing river, harbour, estuary shore and coastline. Wide columned arches lead through to the dining room and gorgeous hand built kitchen, bathed in light by windows to three aspect plus extensive south facing skylights. 

The attic is a superb space, with its dormer window, glorious views and an en suite shower room/wc. This makes a great master bedroom, an office or studio perhaps.

The living space 'flows' nicely into the south facing, partly walled courtyard and garden which measures a healthy 85' in depth.

Homes with the history, quality and individuality of Number 5 are very difficult to find. Blend this with an outstanding location and great water views and you have something very special indeed. We urge you to view, experience and buy!
