THE LOCATION Symons Hill lies beside the town's harbour fronting roads at Greenbank and Stratton Terrace, one of Falmouth's most sought after addresses where so much of what delights about Falmouth is on one's doorstep. It is a fabulous and uplifting spot a few feet from the water's edge and a few minutes stroll into town. The adjacent Greenbank Hotel and Royal Cornwall Yacht Club are ones 'locals' whilst, on the High Street are individual shops and restaurants and the excellent Star & Garter Gastro Pub. Falmouth's Marina is a leisurely fifteen minutes walk away.
The town itself also has a brilliant and diverse selection of restaurants and an eclectic mixture of shops, which include national chains, together with quality galleries showcasing local talent.
Falmouth's seafront, on the town's southern side, is about a mile away, with sandy beaches, Henry VIII's Pendennis Castle and access to incredible walks and scenery along the South West Coastal Path.
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 and Falmouth Marine School, 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; little wonder the town is consistently ranked as one of the top five places to live in the UK.  

THE PROPERTY We have not seen, let alone marketed for sale, anything quite like Enfin, for a very long time.
This is a highly individual and substantial detached house, quality built in the 1960's within a much older, good sized plot and walled garden whose origins probably date back 200 years. The slightly elevated situation is so very unusual, just moments from the waterside and with some fabulous, commanding and ever changing views overlooking the harbour, town and coast.
Enfin is very spacious with flexible accommodation over three floors providing four bedrooms and two superb harbour facing reception rooms plus a 'family' kitchen/dining room with an aga at its heart.
The lower ground floor is an adaptable space, reached internally via steps from the utility room and providing great opportunity for working from home, housing a dependent relative or generating income from air B&B perhaps?
Although requiring some modernisation, there is an elegance to Enfin with its generous hall, staircase and landing areas, good room proportions and 9' (2.74m) ceiling height downstairs. The house is discretely accessed off Symons Hill, through double gates in its high garden wall, into a parking area with double carport and from the rear garden via an external sliding door. To the rear is a large terraced area - a great private place to relax and enjoy. Within the 'main' garden is a delightful, probably Victorian, garden room which would make a wonderful studio or office amongst many other things.
This is an incredibly unusual opportunity to secure an outstanding Falmouth town house, made all the more remarkable by its great situation.
