Location

Woodlane Crescent is a private road off Woodlane in the centre of Falmouth in an elevated position with views across towards Pendennis Castle, Gyllyngvase beach and the sea beyond.

Falmouth lies at the entrance to the Carrick Roads, a beautiful estuary bordered by countryside and small waterside villages and home to sheltered anchorages and yacht marinas. Falmouth also has wonderful sandy south facing beaches and is consistently voted one of the best places to live in the South West (The Sunday Times).

Falmouth harbour itself provides an ever-changing outlook and has hosted transatlantic races in addition to many other sailing and water sport championships. For the keen day sailor or dedicated yachtsman, the south Cornish coast offers some of the finest sailing waters in the UK. A short car, boat or ferry ride away are beautiful creeks and wonderful waterside pubs and restaurants. Falmouth itself is a colourful and historic port with an eclectic mix of galleries, coffee shops, artisan bakeries, bars and restaurants and home to the National Maritime Museum Cornwall and several universities including Exeter’s Cornwall Campus and Falmouth University. Falmouth golf club sits on the headland above Falmouth Bay while much of the surrounding coastline is protected by the National Trust. There are a huge amount of water sports on offer in Falmouth from weekly yacht and dinghy racing, gig rowing, paddle-boarding, diving and fishing. Gyllyngvase and Castle beaches are less than a mile away from Woodlane Crescent.

A branch line rail link runs from Falmouth to Truro where there is a mainline rail service to London Paddington. Cornwall Airport has daily return flights to London as well as other domestic and international destinations.

Description

4 Woodlane Crescent is a beautiful period town house, built in 1860, with many original features offering flexible accommodation for either a family or multi-generational living, or if preferred a second stream of income from renting the charming two-bedroom cottage & garden flat. The property is not listed but lies in a conservation area.

As soon as you enter the property its grandeur and size are evident with a broad entrance hall off which are the two impressive reception rooms, kitchen, stairs to first floor and stairs down to the basement.

The main drawing room is beautifully proportioned, floor to ceiling sash windows with working shutters overlook the front garden and communal gardens beyond. There is an open fire with original marble surround and cast-iron grate and a pair of grand glazed double doors lead through to the dining room; another lovely room with original fireplace and window with shutters looking out to the rear garden.

At the rear of the property on this floor is the kitchen. This has recently been modernised to include a good range of kitchen units with marble effect composite worktops and integrated double oven, dishwasher, fridge and freezer and door out to the garden.

On the first floor is the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom and impressive floor to ceiling window looking out to sea. A guest suite with en suite shower room overlooking the rear garden and a further bedroom, currently being used as a study with sea views. On this floor there is also a separate wc and laundry room with built-in storage and space for washing machine and tumble dryer.

On the second floor are a further two double bedrooms both with wonderful views across to Pendennis Castle, Gyllyngvase beach and the sea beyond, a family bathroom and large walk-in attic storage room.

The basement can be accessed via its own front door from the front garden or internally. The current layout is a galley kitchen with space for cooker and fridge, and a good-sized reception room with window seat. Off this reception room is the double bedroom and shower room.

Cottage- This charming cottage with its own front door is accessed from Florence Terrace. On the ground floor is a small entrance lobby that leads into the sitting room off which is the bathroom and kitchen.

The kitchen is a good size with a good range of kitchen units to include an integrated single oven and four ring hob and space for fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. From the kitchen is a door to the staircase leading up to two really good-sized double bedrooms.

Exterior and Garaging- The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with raised flower beds to one side with mature planting to include a magnolia grandiflora, apple and pear tree. There is a path with sensor lighting that winds through the lawn up to the rear top terrace adjacent to the very charming detached garage/summer house. The path continues on around the side of the garage to the rear gate that leads out onto Florence Terrace.

The garage is accessed off Florence Terrace with double wooden doors that open into a large double garage with plenty of space for parking and storage. The rear of the garage has French doors opening out onto the south facing top garden terrace.
