SITUATION

Number 16 Dunstanville Terrace occupies a truly magnificent position overlooking Falmouth harbour, just above the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club. Built in the late 18th and early 19th century, these elegant houses were the homes of illustrious Packet Ship captains and leading merchants of the period. Down in front of the house, the waterside Greenbank Gardens were home to workshops of builder William Oliver & Son, who built among other landmarks, St.Anthony Lighthouse.

Steeped in maritime history, and with the landmark National Maritime Museum Cornwall on the harbourside, Falmouth now is a colourful and thriving university town, built around what is the third largest natural harbour in the world. In the summer months, the town is a haven for sailors with club racing finishing three times a week on the water within sight of the house. The port regularly plays host to high profile yachting and water sports events, including the Tall Ships Race and former America's Cup J-Class Regattas.

Falmouth Yacht Marina is 10-15 minutes walk up river, whilst the High Street with its galleries, artisan bakery, bars and restaurants is a five minute walk away at the top of Dunstanville Terrace. Falmouth is linked to Truro and the main Penzance-Paddington line (with overnight 'sleeper' service) by its own branch rail line.

THE HOUSE

With over 3,000 sqft of accommodation over 4 storeys (plus basement), No'16 is one of the larger houses on Dunstanville Terrace. Deceptive from the front, it is quite a tardis and is effectively laid out as a generous one bedroom apartment on the ground floor, with a four bedroom house above. As one dwelling, it offers five double bedrooms, three reception rooms and three bath/shower rooms, plus of course the useful basement area.

The ground floor apartment features a glass atrium flooding light into the superb fitted kitchen, complete with modern integrated appliances. Behind the kitchen is a bedroom with en suite shower room, and there is access from this bedroom up to the rear garden. The sitting room at the front has glorious 180 degree views from a square-bay window.

The first floor has a sitting room with inset woodburner and square bay 'sash' window taking full advantage of the position and 180 degree harbour views. At the rear of this floor is a kitchen-breakfast room with open-beamed ceiling and central island unit. This room links through to a conservatory which opens out on to the rear sun terrace.

There are four bedrooms spread across the upper three floors, including one on the top floor with fabulous views from a 'dormer' window and its own en suite 'wet' shower room.

GARDENS

The large rear garden is terraced, with a patio at the lower level, timber deck at the top, and lawned and planted areas in between, all bordered by old stone walls either side. Outstanding water views over the house can be enjoyed from the upper terraces.

SERVICES
