Enjoying one of Falmouth's most picturesque views taking the river over to Flushing, out to Falmouth Harbour and onto the Roseland Peninsula in the distance this Georgian house has been wonderfully restored and refurbished throughout retaining a wealth of period features. Accommodation is arranged over three floors including four bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen/diner, bathroom, downstairs WC. There is also a separate ground floor apartment including one bedroom, kitchen/diner, sitting room and bathroom. There are lawned areas with wonderful seating terraces enjoying the fantastic views.
Stratton Terrace sits in an elevated position above Greenbank and commands glorious water views between the neighbouring properties across Penryn river to Flushing along Trefusis Point and across Falmouth's bustling harbour taking in The Docks and around to Pendennis Headland. It is regarded as one of the most sought after areas of the town being comparatively quiet yet within only a 10 minute walk down hill to the town's High Street and town centre beyond.

Falmouth itself is very much an up and coming town hosting international sailing events and is the home for the highly regarded famous Art School. It is a haven for many holidaymakers who enjoy its fabulous beaches and scenic river trips for many quays and wharfs.

The town offers a profusion of quality restaurants and shops and is the venue for Rich Stein's latest restaurant as well as the National Maritime Museum. The ever increasing student population ensures a dynamic vibrancy as do the various festivals and events that occur throughout the year; Falmouth Week, The Oyster Festival and The Sea Shanty to name a few.

Falmouth has frequently been voted as one of the most desirable towns in which to live in the whole of the UK.

Crown House has been refurbished from top to bottom and retains many period features throughout including ceiling roses, cornicing, detailed archways, high skirtings, sash windows, feature panelling and far more.

The property is approached via double wrought iron gates leading onto wide granite steps which continue up through the main part of the garden.

The gardens include two laid to lawn areas and wonderful seating terraces arranged over three areas. From here they take in fantastic views down to the river, harbour and Flushing.

The property is presented in a fantastic, stylish way with wonderful light and bright rooms designed in a rustic chic style.

Within the main house you enter into an open hallway with painted floors. There is access to a downstairs WC and utility room. The kitchen/diner is a bright dual aspect room with great charm and enjoys wonderful views.

Upstairs the front facing sitting room is dual aspect enjoying superb views, and featuring a marble fireplace. Adjacent is the first bedroom with window to the side elevation with glimpses down to the harbour. Towards the rear of the first floor are two further bedrooms and family bathroom. The family bathroom has also been finished with period features including panelling, claw foot and roll top bath and WC with high level cistern. The two rear bedrooms are both of generous size and compliment this floor. On the second floor is a quirky fourth bedroom with plentiful storage.

The apartment is situated in its own ground floor area of the house and could be incorporated back into the main property. Externally there is an enclosed pretty paved terrace with raised vegetable gardens.

Upon entrance to the apartment you enter the kitchen/diner where again the rustic chic feel continues and it is a light and bright room. There is an internal hallway behind this giving access into the sitting room, bedroom, and the traditional style of the bathroom has been continued with a roll top claw footed bath.

Viewing is essential to appreciate this wonderful Georgian house retaining many period features, taking in fantastic views and offering versatile accommodation throughout.
