Tenure: Freehold

This is a deceptively spacious period town cottage offering much character and charm. The rear elevation affords wonderful views over the rooftops of the town towards Flushing village, Trefusis Point taking in the inner harbour, The Docks and Pendennis Castle and Headland.
With accommodation located over four floors, there are three bedrooms, a family bathroom, a lounge/diner, kitchen/breakfast room, a basement storage room and second basement room, utility and separate WC. Enclosed rear courtyard gardens.
This property is tucked in at the end of Arwenack Avenue, an attractive tree-lined road giving direct access to the Dell railway station which connects to the city of Truro where there is links to the national rail network. Also conveniently situated between the town centre, being moments from the property and beaches of Gyllyngvase and Castle.

Based around a thriving harbour Falmouth is gateway to the beautiful Fal River which runs through an area of natural beauty and Henry VIII's Pendennis Castle marks the entrance to what is the world's third deepest natural harbour.

The town is famous for its creative buzz with many art galleries displaying contemporary works and venues showcasing independent films and live bands. The many reasons to visit the town centre include, the fascinating maritime heritage; the Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty along the Helford and Fal Rivers – perfect for walking and family days out; water sports; boat trips running from the pier and quay; and plenty of family friendly attractions. Falmouth is surrounded by several fantastic family friendly beaches and is known for its year round events calendar.

Falmouth’s maritime legacy and coastal culture is a huge part of its charm boasting world class water sports on its sheltered waters including gig rowing, kayaking, diving and regularly hosting sailing events such as Falmouth Regatta, and the Pendennis Cup.

Apart from the attractive old shops and many cafés and restaurants, Falmouth is the site of a thriving art school, which holds regular exhibitions. Falmouth Art Gallery may be visited free of charge and the National Maritime Museum is located at Events Square.
This is a home ideally suited for a family or simply for persons wishing to enjoy the benefits of town life and enjoys fabulous views from the rear over the town towards the coastline of Flushing and Trefusis Point, Falmouth's inner harbour, The Docks and out to Pendennis Castle and Headland.

The property offers much rustic charm and character, has an intriguing layout with accommodation laid out over floor floors comprising an open living and dining area, a couple of steps drop to a beautifully light, bright kitchen/breakfast area with balcony from which to enjoy the views.

To the first floor are two bedrooms and a family bathroom (loo with a spectacular view!) To the second floor is the main bedroom with low level picture window with beautiful views taking in Flushing across Falmouth Bay, Trefusis Point, The Docks and Pendennis Castle and Headland.

There is another surprise in that a staircase descends directly from the kitchen into the basement room currently utilised as a Children's Games Room and doorway through to an inner cellar store room. There is a utility and separate WC and a covered access way with outside storage leading to the garden, which is a secure enclosed rear garden area and small open courtyard at the front.
