Marlborough Road, Falmouth


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
An impeccably presented town house in this ever-popular residential area of Falmouth, close to Wodehouse Terrace, town centre, seafront and beaches, providing charming and highly versatile 4/5 bedroom accommodation, arranged over 3 storeys, benefiting from attractively landscaped gardens to 3 sides, garage and car port parking, and magnificent, panoramic views over the town and harbour from Greenbank to Flushing, Trefusis Point, the Fal Estuary, Roseland peninsula and Falmouth Bay.


7 Marlborough Road is one of the finest examples of a period town house, providing well proportioned and tastefully updated accommodation, ideally situated for all the town's amenities, with the benefits of a sunny private garden, parking and one of the town's finest and most panoramic views.

Currently run as a select boutique-style guest house, from which the owners gain a substantial income from just six months trading per annum, and which could be readily improved upon should a future owner so wish, the property even more readily lends itself to once again becoming a fine family home, hardly needing even minor modification.

The current accommodation benefits from sympathetic uPVC sash-style double glazing, together with comprehensive gas fired central heating, which complements many retained features including high ceilings, picture rails, an elegant staircase and open fireplace etc. The owners since their purchase in 2005 have taken an immense programme of refurbishment and improvement works, including new roofing, new chimneys, the installation of new windows, a replacement boiler in 2016 and new shower rooms etc, to name but a few.

Surprisingly well 'hidden' from the roadside, the front of the property enjoys an open outlook over the neighbouring bowling green, with the gardens having been expertly landscaped and planted and which, to the side and rear, enjoy a high degree of privacy and sunshine. Conveniently positioned to the rear of the house and readily accessed by a footpath from the back door, is the garage and car port, the former of which has light and power connected.

The faultlessly presented accommodation briefly comprises: a charming gabled entrance porch, reception hall, well proportioned lounge with open fireplace, former dining room (now a ground floor bedroom with en-suite), family sized and well appointed kitchen/breakfast room, large utility room and ground floor cloakroom/WC. The first and second floor accommodation, from where the side-facing rooms enjoy the panoramic views, include two further bedroom suites, a separate WC, single bedroom and stunning loft room, again en-suite, with space for study/sitting areas, ideal therefore for teenage children or master bedroom etc. Whether as a business or magnificent family home, we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment.


The status of Falmouth has been well documented of late having been voted as one of the best places to live anywhere in the UK (Sunday Times 2017 and 2018). 7 Marlborough Road is located close to the 'heart' of the town, just a few yards from Wodehouse Terrace, 'below' which is the town centre and its myriad of shops, commercial facilities, restaurants, galleries and quayside bars etc. Excellent public transport facilities are nearby, together with highly regarded junior schools, doctors surgery, sports clubs, churches and convenience stores.

The seafront and beaches are an approximate fifteen minute walk away and from where the entire South West Coast Path can be explored either by crossing the Fal Estuary to St Mawes, or continuing past Swanpool and Maenporth beaches to the beautiful Helford River and Lizard peninsula beyond. The continued growth of the university at Tremough ensures the rise of visitor numbers, and therefore purchasers, to the area, which also benefits from its close proximity to the cathedral city of Truro, just twelve miles distant.
