THE LOCATION Ideally located on popular residential Avenue Road a few hundred yards from Falmouth town railway station, a short walk from Falmouth town and even shorter walk to the sea front. The development and evolution of the Maritime Museum and Events Square has created a new vibrancy to the harbourside, and a marked uplift in popularity and the standing of this part of town. Events Square is a remarkable success with its quality food, fashion and sailing wear shops, new Tesco express and several excellent eating places including Rick Stein's restaurant and front row harbourside dining at Pizza Express. The 'Square' hosts events throughout the year, such as the Oyster Festival, celebrations of Falmouth Week and The Sea Shanty Festival, as well as many big name attractions. This is a great facility and valuable asset to have on the doorstep. Falmouth has an excellent and diverse selection of restaurants and an eclectic mixture of individual shops as well as national chains, including Marks and Spencer and Sainsbury's, together with quality galleries showcasing local talent. Nearby train stations (Falmouth Town and Penmere Halt) provide a convenient link to the mainline at Truro and Exeter and London, Paddington. Falmouth Docks are a major contributor to the towns economy and along with Falmouth University (with campuses in Falmouth and Penryn) and Falmouth Marine School, specialising in traditional and modern boat building, marine engineering and environmental science, ensure an all year round and active community. There are five primary schools and one secondary school in the town and highly regarded independent preparatory and senior schools in Truro. Falmouth boasts the third largest natural harbour in the world and is renowned for its maritime facilities which offer some of the best boating and sailing opportunities in the country. Falmouth is consistently ranked as one of the top five place to live in the UK 

THE PROPERTY 14 Avenue Road is one of those deceitful properties that only gives away its true identity once inside. On entering the welcoming entrance hall to the large rooms inside and out to the modern kitchen that sits proudly above and looking over the rear garden, garage and workshop beyond. On the first floor you will find more bedrooms than most families will ever need including a useful attic room. Lovingly cared for by the current owners for over 30 years they are sadly leaving to down size and enjoy retirement.

The accommodation has been designed for the current owners use and has a large bedroom with dressing room and bathroom behind (this would have been the sitting room in years gone by and can easily be returned that way). This now means the sitting room is on the first floor along with three bedrooms and an office. The double garage at the rear of the property has a purpose built workshop over and will lend itself to a variety of uses from studio, office or as used now workshop. An outstanding, surprising property and whole heartedly recommended.

A window at both the front and rear gable ends give natural light. Electric and strip lighting
