Melvill Road, Falmouth


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
Occupying a highly convenient yet 'hidden' position, within approximately 300 yards of Gyllyngvase Beach and just 10 minutes' walk from the town centre and harbourside, an individual, detached, split-level house, providing extremely well proportioned and versatile, 5-bedroomed accommodation, benefiting from garaging, ample additional parking, and attractively landscaped and stocked surrounding gardens.


'Tarrywood Lodge' was constructed circa 1978 to an individual split level design and is, undoubtedly, one of the finest properties of its type, so close to the town, harbourside, seafront and beaches.

Set back from Melvill Road, the property was, we understand, constructed within the grounds of a former school and indeed, access remains through an arched coach house, with 'Tarrywood Lodges' grounds forming a walled forecourt, which provides a high degree of security, as well as ample parking in addition to a large attached garage, side patios and terraces, together with a broad, attractively stocked and landscaped rear garden.

Benefiting from high quality replacement uPVC double glazing, oil fired central heating and F.I.T (Feed In Tariff) contracted solar panelling generating daylight power and approximately £600 per annum, the split level accommodation is of reversed-level design, with the entry/mezzanine level leading to two bedrooms, two shower rooms and the attached garage; the upper level provides the living accommodation, including a superbly proportioned triple aspect lounge with magnificent picture window, separate dining room and comprehensively fitted kitchen, with the lower level providing a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms, a further, attractively reappointed shower room, together with independent access to the gardens.

Scope evidently exists for the creation of a ground floor flat, if required, subject to all necessary consents, ideal for those with a dependent relative or in search of a high quality home with income etc, and we strongly advise all prospective purchasers seeking an individual high quality home, in one of Falmouth's most sought-after residential areas, arrange an early viewing appointment.
