Description

Dating from circa 1870, a beautiful semi-detached Victorian house, providing faultlessly presented, highly characterful and extremely flexible 4 (possibly 5) bedroom accommodation, arranged over 4 storeys. Situated on this highly popular road, the property is perfectly situated for Events Square, the harbourside and town centre in one direction, and Gyllyngvase, Castle Beach, the seafront and Pendennis Point in the other. Regular rail and bus services are 'on the doorstep'; all-important off-road parking is provided, and front and rear gardens have been attractively landscaped and planted to provide a high degree of privacy with various sitting-out terraces. An early viewing appointment is unhesitatingly recommended to fully appreciate this highly deceptive family home.

The Property - 'The Hollies' has been beautifully, comprehensively and most tastefully updated by our clients over recent years, with many original character features now supplemented by modern quality fittings and exceptionally tasteful decoration throughout.

High ceilings are complemented by moulded ceiling cornices to some rooms, a reproduction fireplace, bay windows, some with working shutters, tessellated tiled flooring, high skirting boards and, on the ground floor, lovely, exposed, mellow timber flooring. Some windows have been replaced with sympathetic uPVC double glazing, some sash-style, there is a beautifully appointed four-piece family bathroom to the first floor and, on the second floor, there is an adaptable loft room, ideal for continued use as a gym or office etc. A modern gas fired combination boiler provides domestic hot water and central heating and to the lower ground floor, there is a large 'open-plan' dining/sitting room with utility/bar area, walk-in pantry, former independent side access, shower room/WC, and double aspect kitchen which, like the dining area, has double casement doors opening onto the rear gardens.

Brick pavia parking, together with a drop kerb, lies immediately to the front of the house and where gardens have been thoughtfully and tastefully planted. To the rear, well enclosed and sheltered gardens provide sunny sitting-out areas, an al fresco patio with shading apple tree and timber store etc. The rear garden, benefiting from an indemnity insurance when the property was purchased by our clients.

The Location - Lansdowne Road needs little introduction to those familiar with Falmouth, being perfectly situated midway between the harbourside and Events Square, and Gyllyngvase Beach and the seafront. Consequently, all of Falmouth's exceptional amenities are within easy walking distance. The Dell railway halt at the foot of Lansdowne Road provides ready access to the university campus at Tremough and onto the cathedral city of Truro, approximately twelve miles distant. Bus services from The Dell and Avenue and Melvill Roads run regularly to and from the town, which is within easy walking distance in any event, either along tree-lined Arwenack Avenue, or past Events Square, the harbourside and Customs House Quay. In all, one of the best residential roads on which to live in the town.
