THE LOCATION Lansdowne Road is set within a highly desirable location a few hundred yards from both town and Falmouth's sea front and beaches and moments from Falmouth's railway station.

Nearby is the modern development and evolution of the Maritime Museum and Events square which has created a new vibrancy to the harbourside, and a marked uplift in popularity and the standing of this part of town. Events Sqaure is a remarkable success with its quality food, fashion and sailing wear shops, 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, the celebrations of Falmouth Week and The Sea Shanty Festival, as well as many big name attractions.

Falmouth has an excellent and diverse selection of restaurants and an eclectic mixture of individual shops as well as national chains, including Marks & 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 for Exeter and London, Paddington.

Falmouth Docks are a major contributor to the town's 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 places to live in the UK. 

THE PROPERTY A rare opportunity to purchase an impressive beautifully presented Victorian house full of character, yet strikingly, recently extended, re-modelled and modernised to reflect modern day living, within a highly sought after area of Falmouth, near the town & sea front. The accommodation comprises four bedrooms over two floors with the 4th/attic room boasting water views from the side aspect dormer window. Extended to the rear creating a wonderful well lit dining room with glazed roof connecting the lounge and kitchen as a social-able open plan space. Additional living room to the front, with utility off the kitchen. The garden is in two parts, firstly off the dining room is a walled garden, low maintenance with shrubs and trees to it border. To the rear of the property is a small lawned garden with a raised terrace seating area great for end of day sunsets, complete with terraced shrub borders for decoration. To the front of the property is gated parking for two vehicles with hedging and trees to the border providing privacy. All in all this is a rare and wonderful home and must be seen to be believed.
