A smartly-painted Grade II-listed townhouse in the heart of Falmouth (but surprisingly quiet) with the added bonus of two parking spaces and a garage. Inside is spotless and wonderfully homely with antiques and the odd bit of quirk; lots of light streams through proper sash windows and the harbour views from the top floor are glorious – the Captain must have loved sitting up here watching all the booty arrive by boat. There are two sitting rooms (one with an open fire) with comfy sofas, a bright and airy kitchen with a big range cooker and all the stuff you need to cook for a big crowd, a dining room with room around the table for all, a conservatory and a sunny patio with some planting and seating out the back. The master bedroom, with its own bathroom, is big enough to learn the waltz in, the others not much smaller and those at the front have grand views. All have good cotton sheets, high ceilings and pretty fabrics in curtains and soft furnishings. You will find fresh flowers, Cornish tea and coffee, milk and saffron buns – all else you bring yourselves. Explore the Quay and the Museum, take a boat trip, learn to sail.
