Full description

An elegant and highly intriguing, detached, pre-war house on this, one of Falmouth's most highly regarded and sought-after roads, just a few minutes' walk from the town centre, harbourside, seafront and beaches, providing light, bright, 3-bedroomed accommodation, full of charm and character, with gated off-road parking, beautiful 'walled' gardens, and far-reaching views over the town from the rear to Falmouth Bay beyond.

The Property - Constructed, we understand, during the 1930's, 7 Woodlane is a delightful house on this exclusive tree-lined road.

Set behind stone walling with magnificent granite gateposts, a gravelled forecourt provides secure off-road parking, with beautifully stocked borders with many beautiful plants including fuchsias, camellias, honeysuckle and climbing wisteria to the western elevation. Pathways to either side of the property continue to the rear gardens which, again, are fully enclosed, partially by slate-capped walling, enjoy a high degree of privacy, shelter and sunshine, and are beautifully planted and landscaped with sitting-out terraces and shaded areas. Access is also provided to a particularly useful cellar, currently used as a utility room with recently installed gas fired boiler.

The accommodation enjoys a high degree of natural light and retains many interesting features including some exposed timber floors, dado and picture rails and fireplaces, now with glass-fronted log-burners. Double glazing has been installed, there is comprehensive gas fired central heating throughout, the front-facing rooms enjoying an attractive outlook to Woodlane, with those to the rear commanding views over the property's own gardens and timbered grounds of the neighbouring properties to Falmouth Bay in the distance. A useful attic room/studio particularly enjoys this vista.

The Location - Number 7 Woodlane is situated towards the town end of Woodlane, adjacent to Foxes Lane which provides a pretty, pedestrian only walkway to Falmouth Town railway halt and Melvill Road, beyond which Gyllyngvase Beach and the seafront is just a few moments away.

Nearby amenities include two doctors surgeries, King Charles Primary School, squash/tennis club, regular bus services and convenience stores of Albany Road. Along Woodlane and down Swanpool Street leads to Customs House Quay, beyond which is Events Square in one direction, and town centre in the other. With the cathedral city of Truro just twelve miles distant, and easily reached by the regular rail service nearby, 7 Woodlane is perfectly positioned for all mid and south Cornwall's amenities and will therefore prove of immense appeal to retirement and family home purchasers alike. An early viewing is strongly recommended.
