Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An absolutely stunning Grade II listed Georgian town house, beautifully and sympathetically updated offering five bedroom, three reception room accommodation with large terraced gardens and off street parking. Captivating views across the Penryn river to St Gluvias and up river to Old Falmouth.
One of three Georgian townhouses understood to have been built in the 1780's for sea captains sailing out of the port of Penryn.

Set back from a cobbled driveway and approached via granite steps, this handsome Grade II Listed residence reflects its Georgian character through its cut stone facade and large, paned windows.
Penryn has benefited significantly in the last few years by the development of a new university campus in the town, jointly by the Universities of Exeter and Falmouth. Recently facilities such as a waterside café bar, nursery, delicatessen, wine bar and craft shops have emerged to add to the established bank, convenience stores, character pubs and shops. Just a couple of minutes away from this property are Sainsburys, Lidl and Asda supermarkets.

Primary and secondary schools together with a wide range of sports clubs are located in the town which enjoys a well developed community spirit. Higher education is available close by in Truro and Falmouth.

A new station and train service to Truro every 30 minutes (except Sundays) links Penryn to services to London Paddington and London Waterloo, Bristol, Exeter, Birmingham, the North and Scotland. Air services from Newquay scheduled to London Gatwick, Manchester and during summer months numerous locations in the UK and the continent. Other airports can be found in Exeter, Bristol and Southampton access travel to Europe and North America.
This is the right hand end of a most attractive and distinctive period terrace and is a much admired landmark close to the town centre in Penryn. The colourful harbourside town of Falmouth is close at hand.

Its interior shows off many years of careful stewardship and thoughtful modernisation by the various owners. A gracious home with an impressive entrance hall, formal dining room and remodelled modern kitchen, utility area, first floor living room, two shower rooms and five bedrooms. This is augmented by a superb lower ground floor/basement with its own reception room and bathroom and its own entrance. The property enjoys views to the head of the Penryn River, across the town and up the river towards Falmouth.

A particular feature of this fine home is the surprisingly large, terraced gardens which boast an abundance of mature shrubs including Camellia and Rhododendron. Granite steps climb down the various formal levels offering views to the river and reciprocal views of the house. This property boasts a spacious gravelled parking area.

This must be one of the finest residences in the area offering great versatility both in the house and its garden.
