To be sold for the first time in approximately 60 years: a fine, elegant Victorian town house, on this sought-after period terrace, providing light, well proportioned and extremely versatile accommodation, currently arranged as 2 flats but readily reverted to a single family dwelling, enjoying particularly good views from the front elevation over the harbour to Flushing, Trefusis Point, the deep waters of the Carrick Roads and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula, also benefiting from deep rear gardens and extensive off-road parking.
The Property - In our clients' family's ownership for over half a century, the availability of 22 Wodehouse Terrace provides an ideal opportunity for those many purchasers seeking a distinguished town house, on one of the town's most sought-after period terraces, commanding exceptional, elevated, panoramic views over the constant marine activity within Falmouth Harbour, to the picturesque village of Flushing, Trefusis headland, deep sailing waters of the Carrick Roads and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula beyond.
Grade II Listed, the house is currently arranged to provide two flats, one to the ground floor, the other to the second floor, both with independent access and, therefore, ideal also for those prospective purchasers seeking an investment, accommodation for a dependent relative, or home with income.
The ground floor flat currently comprises a harbour-facing lounge, bedroom, kitchen and attractively reappointed shower room/WC. Upstairs, the flat, which enjoys access from both front and rear elevations, comprises a lounge with superb harbour views, two bedrooms, bathroom/WC, large L-shaped landing and dining area, and kitchen with door to the rear gardens.
To revert to a private family house, it would be very easy to remove the doorways which currently exist at the bottom at the internal staircase as our clients previously used the property with two kitchens - a 'winter' kitchen to the ground floor, and 'summer' kitchen to the first floor. If even further accommodation is required, prospective purchasers will note that many properties along the terrace benefit from loft conversions which, in particular, enjoy stunning views.
To the rear, there is a courtyard with doors from the ground floor accommodation, together with steps which rise to a deep garden with lawned and kitchen garden areas, beyond which there is an enclosed parking area (suitable for the construction of a garage, subject to consents), and additional off-road parking with access from Albert Cottages.
In all, a superb town house with the all-important features of a stunning view, gardens and ample parking, with the town, harbourside, seafront and beaches within easy walking distance.
