This spacious and stylish Victorian terraced townhouse dates back to 1868 and is set in a wonderful location just a few minutes’ walk from Falmouth town centre, Maritime Museum and all the nearby attractions that offer something for smaller groups and families.
There are four bedrooms, two boasting original decorative fireplaces with views of the harbour and Events Square, and all with a maritime theme, including the Coxwain's Cabin (twin room) with patio windows opening out on to a roof terrace with table and chairs and the Admiral's Cabin and Bosun's Locker (both first floor doubles) with Vi-Spring mattresses.
The ground floor is made up of a well-equipped, cottage-style kitchen and an open plan sitting room and dining area with an original decorative fireplace.
Sit and relax at the end of the day either on the roof terrace, from where Falmouth harbour and estuary views can be seen, the front garden and terrace or the patio located behind the house with its barbecue area.
The historic Falmouth harbour, one of the deepest in the world and the scene of the start of many round the world adventures and the tall ships race, is situated just down the road from Maritime View.
Falmouth also provides a host of attractions, including the National Maritime Museum and Falmouth Art Gallery, one of the best in Cornwall with a diverse 19th and 20th century art collection.
Above all though, Falmouth is known for its beaches, boating and watersports with Gyllyngvase Beach only a few minutes’ walk away.
Maritime View really is the perfect place for a Cornish coastal holiday at any time of the year.
