THE LOCATION This elegant home is located on Melvill Road on Falmouth's sought after southern side, perfect for accessing the town and harbourside about half a mile away and seafront and beaches a few hundred yards away.

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 Believed to have been built in 1901 this fabulous and imposing semi-detached house has lots of originality and rooms that are larger than its modern counterparts.
Once owned by a Clipper Captain but now home to our vendors and their paying guests. Converted to give a healthy income from the five letting rooms on the first two floors while also giving the owners a comfortable home on the ground floor. Although now a registered HMO (house of multiple occupation) this house could easily be converted back to a large single dwelling should the new owner wish.
Three letting rooms are on the first floor (2 of which are en-suite) plus kitchen and bathroom while two more letting rooms with kitchenettes and a shared bathroom are on the top floor. The average income per room is £450 per calendar month.
The owner's accommodation is on the ground floor and consists of; kitchen (with large utility off), generously sized sitting room with attached Southerly facing conservatory (that leads out to the courtyard garden), large bedroom and a shower room.
Last but not least is the newly converted garage that is now a separate one-bedroom annex and possible lucrative holiday let.
