THE LOCATION Stratton Place is one of Falmouth's most prominent and sought after period terraces where so much of what delights about Falmouth is on one's doorstep. It is set along Greenbank, the town's harbour fronting road, in a fabulous and uplifting spot a few feet from the waters' 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, such as Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury's and Tesco, 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 (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; little wonder the town is consistently ranked as one of the top five places to live in the UK.
 

THE PROPERTY Stratton Place comprises five Grade II listed stucco fronted Regency town houses with Number 5 set in the middle of the terrace. The Place contains some of Falmouth's earliest and finest period homes, probably built for prominent merchants and ship captains; the position no doubt chosen for its convenience to the shore.
The house is set back from the raised pavement by the most delightful garden that's established and richly planted.
The house was built around 1830 with so much that is original remaining at the middle apartment (number 2) keeping an 'honesty' and integrity which is likely to please the purist and discerning purchasers. Loved for many years by the vendor who is reluctant to move but necessary. Larger than most modern flats and character rarely seen, plus the added benefit of off road parking make this a real gem.
