Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Dating from 1826 this fine 4/5 bedroomed Grade II listed Georgian town house is laid out over four floors plus a cellar and enjoys a south facing position on one of Penzance's most favoured roads. Although the roof is relatively modern (approx 30 years) and there is gas central heating, it has reached the point where a programme of works are now necessary to bring it back to its former glory. It is priced accordingly and should be viewed by anyone seeking a project or preferring to personalise their home according to their own taste and style.

LOCATION:
Penzance is an elegant seaside town with a lively art and music scene and is near to some of the most beautiful coastline in Britain. The seaward side of town, where North Parade is situated, is always popular as it is home to Penlee Park and House, with its famous art collection gallery. The Penzance Tennis Club and the famous sub-tropical Morrab Gardens. Both the seafront and town are just a short distance from your front door and include a comprehensive range of commercial, leisure and educational facilities as well as the mainline rail link to London Paddington.
