Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

8 Falcon Terrace is a large mid-terrace, Grade II listed property in one of the area's most attractive and historic rows of houses. The classic gabled frontage has tall multipane sashes, an arched entranced porch and a bay window off the sitting room. Until recently this was a vicarage and as such the parishioners would have entered via a different door to the vicar and their family. This is also found to the front being of an interesting arched design with small pane leaded windows surrounding and opening into a barrelled ceiling hall which is open-plan to the sitting room. The house has been extended to the rear providing an additional bedroom, bathroom and kitchen space to the original design and in addition there is a two storey detached period outbuilding with external access at both levels and several windows giving a huge variety of potential uses. Between the house and the outbuilding is a courtyard and to the rear is a long walled garden with various mature shrubs and trees and there are two rear pedestrian accesses.

The house and its grounds are now in need of work to bring them back to their former splendour but all of the ingredients are in place to create a very stylish and sizeable period home.


Bude is a picturesque and well positioned coastal town with the lovely features of a broad river and canal running through its heart and then spilling out into the sea with sandy beaches around the mouth, protected by lifeguards during the summer season and providing excellent swimming and surfing opportunities. The surrounding coastline is renowned for its breath taking beauty and other long sandy surfing beaches and these are all linked by the South West Coast Path. Within Bude there are many restaurants, inns and cafes along with state and private education. In Bude or the other surrounding towns there is a cinema, various supermarkets including a Waitrose at Holsworthy, a wide range of professional services and medical facilities.

The A39 gives easy access along this stretch of coast to both the south towards Wadebridge, Rock and Padstow and to the north towards Bideford and Barnstaple. Tiverton, Exeter and the M5 motorway are all easily accessed from this most convenient location.
