Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
To be sold for the first time in over 20 years; a substantial 4 bedroom end of terrace property providing excellent scope for improvement, located within moments of Falmouth s main thoroughfare and excellent day-to-day amenities, offering impressive far-reaching views from the first and second floors, encompassing Trefusis Headland, over the Carrick Roads towards The Roseland peninsula, inner harbour and Falmouth Docks, benefiting from ample parking, a low maintenance exterior and, notably, immediate vacant possession with no onward chain.

THE PROPERTY

Forming part of a terraced row comprising only five properties which are so rarely seen on the open market, 5 St Pirans Court provides excellent scope and potential for modernisation, situated in a highly convenient yet little-known location just moments from Falmouth s main street.

To the ground floor, the property comprises a spacious integral garage, sizable guest bedroom and accompanying bathroom opposite with external door leading to the rear garden terrace. Rising to the first floor and benefiting from superb water views, an L-shaped living room with Juliet balcony is situated to the front of the property with the kitchen to the rear and utility area adjoining. The second floor offers three further bedrooms, two doubles and a single/office room served by a family bathroom.

Externally, the property benefits from an appealing low maintenance garden to the rear and side with a modest area of patio immediately accessed from the ground floor hallway. A raised and terraced border containing an array of bushes and shrubs sweeps around towards a single garage, ideal for further dry storage requirements. A brick-paved driveway to the front provides parking for three vehicles.

With such increasing high demand for properties located so close to the town centre, an internal viewing is strongly advised to appreciate the size, scope and nature of this interesting town house.

THE LOCATION

Quite literally 'on the doorstep' of Falmouth s main high street and approximately a three/four minutes walk of the popular Events Square, offering an excellent range of commercial facilities such as shops, bars and restaurants, 5 St Pirans Court is highly convenient, with public transport links close by namely the Falmouth train station linking to the Truro mainline (a five minutes walk) and The Moor bus service (an eight minute walk). Further tourist attractions such as Falmouth's picturesque Gyllyngvase and Castle Beaches are less than a mile away.
