A double-fronted 1930's detached bungalow, in need of updating, yet with many appealing original features, including internal doors, picture rails and skirting boards etc, offering 2(possibly 3) bedroomed accommodation, with enclosed gardens and detached garage. Great potential to extend/improve and possibly conversion of the loft area (subject to necessary consents).
The Property - Retaining many features of this popular era, including picture rails, skirting boards, architraves (and possibly floorboards), yet also having majority double glazed windows, a light, well proportioned and adaptable property, with huge potential to both extend and modernise, subject to requirements and necessary consents.
Currently, the accommodation comprises an entrance porch and traditional 'central' entrance hall with similarly sized rooms either side (both with box bay windows), currently a sitting room and large double bedroom; to the rear of the hall, a bathroom (requiring modernisation) is positioned in between two further rooms of similar proportions, currently a second bedroom and formal dining room, the latter leading to a kitchen which overlooks and accesses the rear garden, which is relatively level, extremely well enclosed and benefits from side pedestrian access on Fairfield Road. The detached garage also offers vehicular access from Fairfield Road, and features pedestrian access from the rear garden.
The Location - Kimberley Park Road is perfectly positioned for easy access to Falmouth's town centre, Falmouth's schools and main bus routes in and out of the town. Within a short walk is the beautiful Kimberley Park, and sandy beaches are within a few minutes' drive at Gyllyngvase, Swanpool and Maenporth. Local primary schools are also nearby, as is the expanding university campus at Tremough, Penryn. Falmouth's golf course and the excellent sailing waters of the Fal Estuary are also close at hand, and the cathedral city of Truro is approximately eleven miles distant.
