Description

One of the finest period homes you will likely find in Falmouth. Built in 1880, spacious, elegant and ornate, an outstanding Grade II listed, double fronted and four bay windowed residence with energy saving credentials, prominently situated between seafront and town and set along this most sought after of Victorian terraces. Original, stylishly restored and beautifully fine-tuned and presented four-bedroom, 3 reception room accommodation, complete with a gloriously contemporary family kitchen/dining and living room extension flowing into the generous walled rear garden. Original bay window attic room, newly built garage, as well as collective use of Cambridge Places' 375' long park like garden it overlooks

THE PROPERTY

Between 1861 and 1881 Falmouth flourished as its population grew by nearly 30%. The docks were built in 1860 and the railway arrived in 1863 opening up Falmouth to tourists. By the time Cambridge Place was built in 1880, Falmouth had become a bustling, thriving town and the 9 prominent residences here, including its incredibly ornate centrepiece, would have been occupied by the most prosperous and well to do of Falmouth, including ship owners and Captains. Today, this elegant and well-kept terrace is little changed externally, although most have been converted and divided within, to spacious apartments and maisonettes. No. 2 is so scarce as it is just one of two remaining intact outstanding double fronted family houses. It is a spectacularly good example where this delightful home effortlessly blends what so many require of a desirable period family home, with its elegant and spacious proportions, comfort, originality and style. Four prominent rooms have wide front facing triple sash bay windows looking into the Cambridge Place communally used garden, these include the fine drawing and sitting rooms as well as three of the four bedrooms, one with luxurious en-suite shower room. There is a further sitting room as well as a strikingly stylish rear extension, likely to become the hub of the home; incorporating a fabulous contrasting matt white and matt blue kitchen with quartz worktops, this 'family' room overlooks and flows effortlessly into the walled rear garden. The hall, staircase and landing areas impress, as does the wonderful original attic room, over 27' long, with its dormer window and beamed apex ceiling. This area has such scope as a studio, a work from home office, or indeed to create another stunning bedroom suite if desired. Quality, space and comfort are all so evident at No.2 and this continues outside into the level and walled sandstone paved rear garden which enjoys summer sunshine for much of the day. The current family owners bought Number 2 from us just two years ago with the intentions to live here for good. Since then, they have ‘fine-tuned’ the house, respectfully restoring and improving it without sparing expense whilst also building a double garage behind. They love it but work commitments are dictating a relocation out of Cornwall and the very reluctant sale of Number 2. With the newly built garage came an ability to save energy with the installation of solar panels on the roof, a battery to store energy as well as a ‘Zappi’ electric car charger. No. 2 Cambridge Place is undoubtedly one of the most exceptional and impressive houses of its type that we have seen for a very long time.. If you require and appreciate the best, we urge you to act without hesitation!

THE LOCATION

Cambridge Place is unique in Falmouth and certainly one of the finest and most sought-after residential positions and roads available. Its location is superb, situated on the town's Southerly side, a short distance from the seafront, Swanpool & Gyllyngvase beaches and the coastal footpath. The Place is about 1/2 mile from the town and harbourside where there is an excellent and diverse selection of restaurants and bars and an eclectic mixture of individual shops as well as national chains, together with quality galleries showcasing local talent. Nearby train stations (Falmouth Town & Penmere) provide a convenient link to the mainline at Truro for Exeter and London Paddington. Effectively a continuation of Florence Place and terrace, Cambridge Place presents another level in statement and style where the ornateness and detail reflects the ultimate in quality of its time. Blessed that it has communal use of the lovely large park like garden it overlooks - such a brilliant and restful facility to enjoy on one’s doorstep in the heart of Falmouth.
