THE LOCATION Palm lined Dracaena Avenue is Falmouth's arterial road leading to the seafront, beaches, Pendennis Castle and central town. Conveniently positioned on a regular bus route and within half a mile of Falmouth town and being right opposite the police station and a short distance to the playing fields a few hundred yards away in one direction and the marina in the other.  

THE PROPERTY Very unusual and striking, this home was probably built in the 1930's and as with most properties of that era the room sizes are much more generous than the modern equivalent. The front is aesthetically pleasing to the eye with a large bay window on either side and dormer window over. On the ground floor there's a large sitting/dining room just off the kitchen plus a separate lounge that could be a bedroom (number 4) and there is also another bedroom (Number 2) and the family bathroom. On the first floor is a magnificent master bedroom with en-suite plus a further bedroom (number 3) with a nursery room attached. Outside there is a single garage and plenty of parking to the front but it's really the rear garden that's the making of this home….. years of love and hard work have transformed this terraced area into an oasis of colour that due to illness the vendor can no longer upkeep and rather than see the fruits of his labour diminish they have decided to sell and let the next owner take enjoyment from this garden.
