Falmouth is a colourful and bustling town, yachting haven and home to one of the worlds largest and most beautiful natural harbours which opens out onto the fine day sailing waters of the Carrick Roads. Once one of the busiest commercial ports in Britain and now recognised as one of the most sought after locations on the south coast, the town offers an exciting range of shops, restaurants, bars and galleries together with a wide variety of banking, schooling and leisure amenities.
There are golf courses at Falmouth, Budock Vean, Killiow and Truro whilst the surrounding coastline offers unspoilt sandy beaches and numerous scenic walks. Within approximately 12 miles is the cathedral city of Truro which now forms the commercial heart of the County.
There is a branch line railway station in the town linking directly to Truro and from here there is a main line rail connection to London Paddington.THE PROPERTY
Accessed via one of the historic opes from the High Street, 5 Seaview Cottages is an attached house that has been extensively renovated by the architect owner to create a stylish contemporary home with low maintenance in mind.
The accommodation is arranged over three floors and configured to capitalise on the grandstand vistas. On the ground floor is found the master bedroom with direct views and an en-suite wet room complete with thermostatic rain shower, underfloor heating and pebbled floor. In addition on this level is the utility room with storage and space for appliances. Ascending to the first floor, one finds the splendid open-plan living area with bespoke George Robinson kitchen in duck egg blue with a variety of Neff appliances, Silestone and granite work surfaces. This wonderful space has a beamed ceiling, limed oak engineered flooring throughout and opens through bi-fold doors to a cantilevered glass balustraded balcony with marina decking.
On the upper floor are found two further bedrooms and a shower room which is, again, beautifully appointed throughout.
The quality of fittings and eye for detail throughout this property are exemplary, making the very best of the available space and position. A truly individual harbourside home that enjoys a secluded position yet is yards from the vibrant centre of the town, an ideal bolt-hole or prime main residence.
The property is available fully furnished, subject to separate negotiation and with no onward chain.OUTSIDE
