With great scope to extend to the rear and also provide off-road parking to the front, subject to planning consents, a highly appealing semi-detached house, believed to be late Victorian, currently comprising light, well proportioned and recently updated 2 (formerly 3) bedroom accommodation, featuring a wood-burner in the living room, gas central heating, double glazing, front and rear gardens and a useful attached outbuilding/store. Waterloo Road is an extremely popular road, due to its close proximity to the town centre and 15 minute walk of the seafront and Gyllyngvase Beach.
The Property - Having been recently improved and updated by the current owners, a lovely semi-detached house which, unlike many properties within the immediate area, is nicely set back from the roadside by a generous front garden, providing the possibility of off-road parking. With a surprisingly deep rear garden, the house has additional scope to extend, yet still retain a generous rear garden for this central area of town.
An entrance porch leads to a comfortable lounge with stone surround fireplace and wood-burner, through to an inner hall, staircase to the first floor and door to a spacious kitchen/dining room featuring direct access to the garden. On the first floor, we believe a master bedroom has previously been enlarged and was formerly two bedrooms. A rear landing leads to a second bedroom and tastefully refitted bathroom.
The Location - Waterloo Road is centrally located within a few minutes' walk from the town itself, junior school and harbourside. Gyllyngvase Beach and Falmouth seafront is within a fifteen/twenty minute' walk. The town's excellent range of shops, services and restaurants etc are therefore very close at hand, together with water sports facilities centred around the harbourside and shorelines, including the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club, Water Sports Centre and various marinas.
Also within a few minutes' walk is the recently developed Events Square, adjacent to the Maritime Museum and Rick Steins fish and chip restaurant. Falmouth's safe bathing beaches and beautiful clifftop walks are also nearby, as is Falmouth's railway station which leads to Truro, approximately twelve miles distant, which connects to the main Penzance to London (Paddington) line.
