An imposing Georgian town house offered for sale with current HMO licence and presently occupied by 14 letting rooms, the majority with en-suite shower facilities, a couple with kitchenettes and two independent kitchens. Large communal lounge, laundry, bathroom, two separate WC's. To the rear of the main house two of the rooms are in the form of a single storey detached annex with covered walkway accessed from the main property, initially designed to give disabled access.

To the side of the house is a tarmacced driveway providing off road parking and double gates opening onto the level enclosed, high walled, rear garden where there are lawns, decking, mature garden area and detached summerhouse.
The property is located directly to the rear of Kimberley Park thus within minutes from the town centre yet occupying its own sizeable garden plot and providing driveway parking a feature which is highly prized in the select area.

The gardens at Kimberley Park pre-date 1877 and are named after the Earl of Kimberley, who leased the parks to the Borough of Falmouth. This seven acre site is the home to many fine ornamental trees and along with the formal bedding areas has helped Falmouth win many Britain in Bloom competitions.

The variety of trees, some of which are much admired by Kew Gardens staff, have produced a green oasis enjoyed by visitors and the local community alike. The Falmouth Town Council also encourages the donation of trees by local organisations to the tree planting programme to help protect the heritage of Falmouth.

In 2013 Heritage Lottery funding enabled the installation of a wonderful children’s play area/assault course has been a feature popular with residents and visitors alike, creating a wonderful family and social area.

Falmouth town, with its comprehensive range of day to day facilities, is a short stroll down the hill from the property. With attractions such as the Maritime Museum, Princess Pavilion and Gyllyngdune Gardens and boating day trips; Falmouth is a popular destination for local residents and holiday makers. The town is served by a park and float/ride service from the Ponsharden area and the wonderful beaches of Swanpool and Gyllyngvase are within easy reach. Glendurgan Beach, Maenporth Beach and Trebah Gardens to name but a few points of interest, are also easily accessible.

In recent years, larger supermarkets have been installed on the fringes of Falmouth to include Sainsbury’s, Lidls and Pets at Home. A smaller Tesco store, Rick Steins’ Fish and Chips and many other restaurants, cafés and bars are a short walk from the property.

The town plays host to many major events, including the annual Oyster Festival. The inclusion of the Arts and Maritime colleges at Trelawney Road, the Woodlane Campus and the University of Exeter at Tremough, Penryn, gives Falmouth a healthy year round vibrancy.

Falmouth is served by the mainline rail link at Penmere station, on the outskirts and The Dell in the town. This line links through Penryn to the City of Truro and gives access to the main Paddington to Penzance line.
Having been in the same ownership for the last ten years and having operated for many years previously as a residential care home, No. 2 Park Crescent currently comprises 14 independent rooms as previously mentioned, many boast their own en-suite shower rooms and mini kitchenettes. Room two features a living area, kitchenette, shower room and additionally a separate bedroom (almost a self contained flat). To comply with current regulations there are additionally two independent kitchens, a large communal living room, a main bathroom, separate WCs, laundry, storage areas etc., Caretakers office, detached single storey annex and detached summer house. We strongly believe that subject to the necessary planning permissions etc., additional rooms could be created should the new purchasers wish to increase the income yield. We are informed that all of the current tenants hold assured short hold tenancies and further details of income can be provided on request.

The house has been the subject of further updating since the current owners ownership to include the rewired fire alarm system, and a closed circuit television system which is web linked to the caretaker. A full gas central heating system, has been installed with a recently renewed boiler.

The grounds to the rear are level and enclosed with a private driveway providing parking to the side. Double gates give access into the side garden. To the rear is high stone walls, where subject to the necessary permissions we believe that additional parking could indeed be created.
