Frobisher Terrace is one of Falmouth’s most popular locations located above Greenbank and Dunstanville Terrace enjoying the always interesting views over the surrounding townscape and maritime aspects. The house is believed to date back to the 1850's.
Based around a thriving harbour, Falmouth is gateway to the beautiful Fal River which runs through an ‘Area of Natural Beauty’. The town is famous for its creative buzz with many art galleries displaying contemporary works and venues showcasing independent films and live bands. The many reasons to visit include, the fascinating maritime heritage; the Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty along the Helford and Fal Rivers – perfect for walking and family days out; water sports; boat trips running from the pier and quay; and plenty of family friendly attractions.
Falmouth is surrounded by several fantastic family friendly beaches and is known for its year round events calendar. These sandy stretches are where many of the main hotels stand and they are ideal for swimming. From the Prince of Wales Pier, pleasure boats cruise up the River Fal as far as Truro , and a ferry runs across to St Mawes. Some of the boats call at where the National Trust gardens are worth seeing. In addition there are cruises to the Helford River and Frenchman’s Creek, immortalised by Daphne du Maurier.
Falmouth’s maritime legacy and coastal culture is a huge part of its charm boasting world class water sports on its sheltered waters including gig rowing, kayaking, diving and regularly hosting sailing events such as Falmouth Regatta, and the Pendennis Cup.
Apart from the attractive old shops and many cafés and restaurants, Falmouth is the site of a thriving art school, which holds regular exhibitions. Falmouth Art Gallery may be visited free of charge and the National Maritime Museum is in the town centre. On the other side of The Moor on Killigrew Street is a flight of 111 stone steps known as Jacob's Ladder . This is not in reference to the biblical tale, but in fact named after local businessman Jacob Hamblen who commissioned the steps. There is a good view of the town for those who have the energy to climb up there.
There are many attractive old pubs in Falmouth, many of which serve food and some of which have occasional live music. The Falmouth Arts Centre is a venue for film and theatre and the Princess Pavilion hosts shows during the season.
A beautiful example of a lovingly renovated period townhouse with gardens and parking in an elevated position. The property is accessed from Frobisher Terrace via a gate and up a meandering herringbone style brick path leading up through the front garden with areas laid to lawn and planted borders. Steps lead up to an initial decked seating area and then onto a further decked terrace that wraps around the side of the property. A lovely setting from where you can appreciate the maritime and coastal views.
A wood and glass front door with window above is set beneath an ornate storm porch with slate roof opening to an entrance porch with original tiled floor, a further wood and glass door with glass side panels opens to the inner hallway. Engineered oak flooring runs through the hallway to the rear door from where you access the rear courtyard. Three stripped wooden doors open to the lounge on the left, the kitchen/diner to the right and to the cloakroom at the rear.
The handmade Prentice kitchen is a particular feature to the property. It is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base units with worktops over. There are two distinct areas, one side having Zodiaq quartz composite worktops, inset twin porcelain sink and drainer, inset Neff double gas hob, double height integrated Gorenje fridge and integrated dishwasher. The opposite area has solid oak worktops and has a central focus point of a gas fired twin oven Aga and lovely breakfast bar. The mixture of modern and character continues with beautiful limestone flagged flooring and brick style splash back tiling. A separate utility room to the rear has space and plumbing for a washing machine and provides storage and a second sink.
The dining area leads on from the kitchen area providing ample space for dining table and chairs. Engineered oak flooring gives definition between the areas and the bay window allows diners to enjoy the eye-catching views.
Located to the left of the property the lounge is another light and bright room with attractive cast iron fire place, picture rails and ceiling rose. To the rear of the property is a convenient and stylish cloakroom, again with limestone flagged flooring and partial wood panelled walls, giving a real nautical feel!
The elegant turning staircase with attractive wooden balustrades rises from the inner hall to the half landing and first floor, with large opaque double glazed window allowing plenty of light to stream in whilst retaining privacy. The two main bedrooms are located to the front of the property from where the views extend up Penryn River and over to the Roseland Peninsula. Bedroom four/study also looks to the front elevation. The third bedroom, bathroom and shower room are all located off the half landing to the rear of the property. All rooms are finished to the same high standard.
The stylish bathroom is fitted with a three piece suite including attractive bath with tiled surround and has a mix of wood panelling and brick style tiles to the walls. The Velux skylight ensures there is plenty of light in the room showcasing the limestone flooring. A separate shower room opposite is a really useful addition and again has a lovely finish and houses a glass doored walk in shower and wash hand basin, and limestone flooring.
Externally the property has larger than expected gardens and decked terraces providing plenty of room to enjoy the beautiful views and to partake of Al Fresco dining. The gardens have areas laid to lawn and borders providing a colourful mix of mature shrubs and plants including Roses, Ferns and Clematis. The two tiers of decking have ample room to house dining table and chairs and are complemented by occasional raised flower beds. A wooden gate gives access to the rear parking space, where planning permission has been granted to build a garage with bedroom over, which could be accessed through what is currently the cupboard on the half landing – what an added extra!
