A VERY RARE OPPORTUNITY to own this HIGHLY INDIVIDUAL, multi-level, three bedroom detached house, perched in an ENVIABLE AND ELEVATED LOCATION at Penwerris Terrace, COMMANDING ONE OF THE MOST SPECTACULAR, UNINTERRUPTED VIEWS that Falmouth has to offer, looking across the harbour and docks to the Carrick Roads, The Roseland Peninsula, Flushing, The Penryn River plus both St Mawes and Pendennis Castles.
Grayshott comes to the market for the very first time since it was built in 1960 and since then it has been the family seat for three generations of our clients family. The house is well presented but a little old fashioned and this allows potential new owners the chance to revitalise the property and create a home which matches their own taste and requirements.
From a first look, the property is somewhat deceiving but behind the front door lies a multi-level home where all the living accommodation faces the harbour and that in itself is an unusual feature.
The house has UPVC double glazed windows and doors, gas central heating by radiators, a gas fired Aga range in the kitchen, a focal point sandstone fireplace in the sitting room, original oak flooring in some ground floor areas.
The accommodation in sequence includes on the ground floor, a reception hall, full bathroom and wc, fitted kitchen, dining room and a long utility porch to the side. A staircase takes you from the reception hall up to the top floor where you will find two harbour facing bedrooms and the return staircase to the lower ground floor that has a large sitting room and covered balcony again facing the harbour and a principal bedroom with modern en-suite shower room. The single integral garage provides covered parking with room for a small car in front and there is an opportunity to remove the front wall and create another parking space. At the rear of the house sits two terraces of level lawns and a patio and a timber garden shed.
The house is a comfortable down hill walk past The Boathouse public house down into the upper High Street which leads into Falmouth's bustling town centre and waterside districts and along Greenbank to the hotel and Royal Cornwall Yacht Club.
As our clients sole agents, we strongly recommend an immediate viewing to appreciate all this fine property has to offer.
