THE LOCATION This 1950's bungalow lies in an enviable spot along Castle Drive, at the entrance to a select close of highly sought after and individual homes.
The location is outstanding, slightly elevated to afford lovely views, whilst being incredibly convenient, a short stroll to Falmouth seafront and Castle Beach.
Scenery and walks near here are spectacular with Pendennis' Tudor Castle and its grounds and the incredible outlook from Castle Drive and Pendennis Point, encompassing stunning coastline, estuary and sea, all on one's doorstep.
Falmouth Docks and harbourside is about a ten minute walk with a corner shop closer still.
Falmouth has a diverse selection of restaurants and an eclectic mixture of individual shops as well as national chains, including Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury's, together with quality galleries showcasing local talent. Nearby train stations (Falmouth Town and Penmere Halt) provide a convenient link to the mainline at Truro for Exeter and London, Paddington.

Falmouth Docks are a major contributor to the town's economy and along with Falmouth University (with campuses in Falmouth and Penryn) and Falmouth Marine School, specialising in traditional and modern boat building, marine engineering and environmental science, ensure an all year round and vibrant community. There are five primary schools and one secondary school in the town and highly regarded independent preparatory and senior schools in Truro.

Falmouth boasts the third largest natural harbour in the world and is renowned for its maritime facilities which offer some of the best boating and sailing opportunities in the country. The town is consistently ranked as one of the top five places to live in the UK.  

THE PROPERTY 1 Tredynas Road was built in the 1950's by Percy Williams Building Company Ltd, a respected local firm, still flourishing and renowned for their specialist conservation work and for building eco-friendly homes.
This individual bungalow enjoys a commanding and prominent position within the close, set within a generous plot and lovely richly stocked and landscaped garden with much quality granite evident.
The property is well cared for but old fashioned, providing three bedrooms and fine lounge/dining room with picture windows and super views overlooking the harbour, town and shoreline. We believe there is great scope and opportunity here to modernise and possibly re-model and expand, subject to necessary consents.
The property has a detached garage, off road parking space and a cellar with 6' head height.
All in all, a outstanding opportunity, unlikely to be repeated in a very long time.
