SITUATION:
Trewartha Terrace is off a quiet lane, yet close to both the town centre and harbour front. Penzance has all the amenities to be expected of the largest town in West Penwith, including a bus terminal and mainline railway station (London Paddington approx. 5 hours). The town is also an active port, overlooking Mounts Bay and St Michael's Mount. The surrounding coastline is of outstanding natural beauty, with many coves and sandy beaches. Other famed attractions in the area include the Tate at St Ives and the clifftop Minack Theatre at Porthcurno.

DESCRIPTION:
Trewartha Terrace is a row of some of the finest period houses in Penzance. Grade II listed, 2 Trewartha Terrace is a classic example of a substantial Georgian townhouse which, during recent years, has been carefully maintained, retaining many original features. In addition to the five-bedroomed accommodation there is a lower ground floor suite of rooms, which could be converted into a self-contained flat, if required. There are lawned gardens to the front and a walled garden to the rear, which has parking for four cars.
