THE LOCATION Spernen Wyn Road is one of the most sought after residential positions in Falmouth where individual and substantial homes lie in large gardens near the sea. Its location is superb, situated on the town's southern side, a few moments' walk to the seafront and Gyllyngvase beach and café, and in the other direction to Swanpool and the coastal footpath. Spernen Wyn Road is about half a mile from the town and harbour where there is an excellent and 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 vibrant community. There are five primary schools and one secondary school in the town and another in Penryn as well as highly regarded independent preparatory and senior schools in Truro. Falmouth boasts the third deepest 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. Falmouth is consistently ranked as one of the top five places to live in the UK 

THE PROPERTY This distinctive house was built in the 1930's and designed by the renowned Cornish architect Alfred Cornelius. It lies within a gloriously established and richly stocked large garden, nicely set 60' back from Spernen Wyn Road but also with a fabulously usable, level enclosed rear garden of a size and quality seldom seen in Falmouth. The attention to detail is impressive with a delightfully authentic, stylish and comfortable interior where lovely original characteristics have been retained.
Accommodation is wonderfully light and bright and nicely proportioned with staircase and landing areas and two fine reception rooms; the sitting room with bowed window and original tile and wood surround fire place and the dining room with access onto a lovely semi-circular covered terrace. The kitchen is a sociable space with its fireplace, dresser, exposed wooden floor and island breakfast bar and expanse of granite worktops. Upstairs are three bedrooms and separate bathroom and shower room with WCs. The attic is a generous space and considered ripe for conversion, subject to consents.
A new roof was completed in March 2018 with the addition of two Velux windows. This is an outstanding house with a particularly rare blend of valuable and lovely attributes, all situated in a glorious, uplifting spot so near the sea with sea views - unhesitatingly recommended!
