On the instructions of the co-executors and to be sold for the first time in approximately 30 years: a charming 3-bedroomed home of much charm and character, in a short picturesque terrace of Georgian cottages, occupying an elevated position 'above' Greenbank and enjoying quite exceptional, unobstructed views across the entire breadth of Falmouth's harbour to Trefusis Point, the deep sailing waters of the Carrick Roads and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula - one of the town's finest views!
The Property - 2 Prospect Place is a picturesque Grade II Listed Georgian home, in a short elegant terrace, 'perched' above the highly sought-after Greenbank area, 'hidden' from the roadside, enjoying completely unobstructed views across the entire breadth of Falmouth's busy harbour, to the picturesque village of Flushing, surrounding unspoilt countryside, deep sailing waters of the Carrick Roads and, beyond, to the shoreline of The Roseland peninsula. An ever-changing view of constant boating and shipping activity, bordered by some of the region's most attractive countryside, and, perhaps, one of the best views available from any property in the town!
For sale on the instructions of the co-executors and to be sold for the first time in approximately thirty years, 2 Prospect Place benefits from a modern gas fired central heating system to charming accommodation which briefly comprises: entrance porch, reception hall, 'double' reception room with separate lounge and dining areas, kitchen, split level landing, three bedrooms, two enjoying the superb harbour views, and an upstairs shower room/WC. To the front of the cottage there is a full width terrace overlooking the harbour and, to the rear, a pretty courtyard provides space for a store, pots and hanging baskets, etc. A quaint and most charming home, close to the centre of town but tucked-away in a traffic-free location - a real rarity, not to be missed!
The Location - Understood to have been a terrace of cottages built for the five daughters of a packet ship captain, Prospect Place is little-known to even Falmouth's oldest residents, the access being by foot off Penwerris Terrace, 'above' Greenbank, location of the landmark Greenbank Hotel and Royal Cornwall Yacht Club.
The top of Falmouth's old High Street is just a few minutes' walk away, beyond which the town centre's full range of shopping, leisure and commercial facilities are easily reached. Regular passenger ferries leave from Prince of Wales Pier to Flushing and St Mawes, and those who enjoy sailing and other water sports will be attracted by the mooring facilities within the harbour, competitive sailing from the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club, dinghy launching facilities from the Water Sports Centre near to the National Maritime Museum, and full range of marina facilities on North Parade.
Recently voted, once again, as one of the best places to live anywhere in the country by The Sunday Times, Falmouth remains a 'hotspot' in property terms and, therefore, prospective purchasers seeking a permanent home or investment property are strongly recommended to arrange an early viewing appointment.
