In a quiet backwater off a picturesque ope-way, convenient for Falmouth's town centre, an absolutely superb stone-fronted 3-bedroomed cottage, built, we understand in 1869 and extended in the 1960's, now beautifully presented throughout, benefiting from front and rear courtyard-style gardens, full uPVC double glazing and gas fired central heating.
The Property - Believed to have been part of Lord Kimberley's Estate and constructed in the 1860's, Number 8 Trelawney Cottages is a particularly attractive home in a picturesque ope-way, off a quiet backwater, but within a few minutes' walk of Falmouth's town centre and harbour.
A pedestrian ope-way to the front elevation leads to an attractive well enclosed front garden with well stocked and colourful flower bed, a recently laid paved area for sitting-out and path leading to the front door and into the accommodation.
The accommodation comprises two reception rooms with inter-connecting arch and stripped timber flooring throughout with a gas fire to the front reception (possible open fireplace if required) and a turning staircase rising to the first floor from the dining room, a particularly generous room with further door leading to the rear hallway which accesses the modern shower room and kitchen to the rear, as well as an external door to the rear courtyard. The three bedrooms are all situated on the first floor with bedroom three benefiting from a recently installed separate WC for added convenience.
In all, this is a 'gem' of a cottage, clearly cared for by the current owner and one not to be missed, consequently an immediate viewing appointment is strongly recommended.
The Location - Trelawney Cottages is conveniently located in a quiet backwater between Trelawney, Waterloo, Norfolk and Marlborough roads in Falmouth, a few minutes' walk from the town centre, junior schools and harbourside.
The town's excellent range of shops, services and restaurants etc are very close at hand, together with water sports facilities centred around the bustling harbourside and which include the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club, dinghy sailing club, marina and National Maritime Museum, off Events Square at the eastern end of the harbour.
Falmouth's numerous sub-tropical gardens, safe bathing beaches and beautiful clifftop walks are also nearby, as is Falmouth town's railway station which leads to Truro, approximately twelve miles distant, which connects with the main Penzance to London (Paddington) line.
