To be sold for the first time in approximately 30 years, a broad, double fronted, Grade II Listed house, providing extremely versatile 4 bedroom, 3 reception room accommodation, in need of refurbishment, thus providing a superb opportunity to bring a characterful and cosy house back to its former glory, with the additional benefit of a delightful, completely walled, sheltered and sunny rear garden. Immediate vacant possession with no onward chain.
Understood to date from the late 18th Century to a traditional, symmetrical design, with central doorway with fluted pedimented door case with panelled reveals and 6-panel door. 'One of a good row of 18th Century houses stepped down the hill in New Street', listing entry number: 1206315.
In the ownership of our clients' family for over 30 years, and vacant for the last 11 years, the property is now in need of general modernisation with works including wiring, plumbing, the installation of a central heating system, new bathroom and kitchen, and re-landscaping of the rear gardens. Following such work, a lovely in-town house will be recreated to provide an ideal 3/4 bedroom family home with a lovely, sheltered and completely walled rear garden which already includes slate terraces and pathways, together with some old but useful brick outbuildings.
At the foot of the hill, Commercial Road leads to the Penryn River; at the top of the hill are all of Penryn's day-to-day amenities; the port of Falmouth is less than 2 miles distant, with the cathedral city of Truro just 10 miles away.
