THE LOCATION Western Terrace is on Falmouth's arterial road spurring off to town and harbourside and leading to the seafront, Pendennis Castle and point. Falmouth town is thriving and vibrant with an eclectic mixture of independent and national shops including Marks and Spencer, many galleries showcasing local art and crafts and an excellent and varied selection of places to eat and drink. Events Square and the National Maritime Museum regularly host activities and events throughout the year including Falmouth Classics, Falmouth Week and the Oyster and Sea Shanty festivals. Falmouth seafront faces south over the Bay with sandy beaches and access to the South West coastal path and glorious scenic coast and countryside. No wonder Falmouth is consistently voted in the top five favourite places to live in the UK. 

THE PROPERTY The quality and workmanship is evident everywhere you look in this home built just over a hundred years ago. High ceilings, large rooms and picture windows are all a pleasant surprise and this really does feel like a well-loved family home ready to welcome new owners and one can only imagine the fun to be had with children play hide and seek.

This is a proper family home that offers so much and feels like great value for money, on the ground floor there is a fabulous sitting room, separate dining room (with veranda), generous kitchen/dinner with utility room off, ground floor W/C and a wonderful entrance hall. The first floor has ¾ bedrooms, family bathroom and separate W/C, finally on the top floor is the huge master bedroom with excellent far reaching views. A large cellar sits below and there is a possible opportunity to convert this to what would suit your needs. Gardens and parking seem an aside but this property can only be fully appreciated by internal viewing.
