Full description

A beautiful stable block conversion of stone and granite elevations under a natural slate tiled roof. An interesting design open plan living/dining/kitchen area, separate dining room/bedroom three and ground floor cloakroom/WC. Vaulted galleried landing, master bedroom with en-suite WC and second bedroom. Family bathroom comprising a claw foot and roll-top bath and separate shower cubicle.
In keeping with the character of the property are small paned windows overlooking the enclosed cobbled courtyard providing a high degree of privacy with high stone walling. An arched pedestrian gate to one side and to the other a double wooden gated courtyard access. Parking is provided to the rear of the property on a herringbone brick paved hardstanding. Oil fired central heating with radiators to the first floor and under floor heating to the ground floor.

There is a small section of woodland immediately to the side of the Stables which can be included subject to negotiation. We can confirm however that there would be a maintenance only right of access to be retained by Roscarrack House.
** VIEWING IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED**
The Stables are located along a tree-lined private lane which opens into the grounds of Roscarrack House.

It is unusual to find such a historic detached property offered for sale within the perimeter of Falmouth town, yet its location easily provides access to beautiful countryside walks, the nearby beaches of Maenporth and Swanpool. Public transport facilities are available along Bickland Water Road.

Falmouth is a bustling harbourside town growing in reputation as one of the most desirable places to live in the whole of the UK. The centre boasts a profusion of high quality independent shops nestled between high street stores, galleries, cafes and restaurants. Henry VIII's Pendennis Castle marks the entrance to what is the world's third deepest natural harbour and is now home to the National Maritime Museum.

The colourful harbour plays host to many sailing events and transatlantic races including the Tall Ships race. Falmouth's renowned seafront is within a short ten minute walk and is home to Gyllyngvase's blue flag beach and popular café.
Falmouth is now a University town, expanded from the original Art School along Woodlane. There are popular primary schools within a short drive of the property and Falmouth secondary school along Trescobeas Road. The nearest railway station is located at Penmere which is a branch line providing access onto the neighbouring town of Penryn (University Campus) and onto Truro where it links with the national rail network.

This is an interesting conversion of the former detached stable block and walled courtyard, which at one time would have served the Grade II Listed Roscarrack House.

The accommodation has a rustic charm with rough-cast painted stone walling throughout, deep tiled window sills, an entire ceramic tiled ground floor with under floor heating, a quality fitted kitchen area which is open to the living space, and has solid wood block work surfaces complemented by a Belfast-style sink unit. There is a good sized cloakroom/WC.

The impressive living space has an ornate open fireplace with deep hearth and mantel (believed to have been moved from the original Manor House and installed as a feature within The Stables). There is a separate dining room/third bedroom which has double doors opening onto the original cobbled walled courtyard. To the first floor is a striking open galleried landing overlooking the living space providing plenty of natural light and gives access to the family bathroom, master bedroom and second bedroom. (Subject to the necessary planning permissions and building regulations a further bedroom could possibly be created on the first floor).

The property is served by an oil fired central heating system with storage tank located along the lane. Underfloor heating to the ground floor. All in all a truly unusual find.
