Penrose Terrace, Penzance
Property SummaryAttached two bedroom cottage.
Substantial Grade II listed town house with an attached two bedroom cottage. This magnificent property can be utilized as one large residence or as 3 separate dwellings providing: two bedroom basement apartment, two bedroom cottage and four bedroom house. The main house is unspoilt with beautiful period detailing: ornate cornicing, high ceilings, sash windows with working shutters, and original floor boards. Unusually the lower ground floor also has high ceilings as well as in most rooms the original slate flagstone floors. It is currently used as storage/ playroom but could lend itself to a self-contained unit if desired. To the rear of the property is the beautifully refurbished two bedroom Ivy Cottage which is currently rented separately but could be used as part of the main house if preferred. The house has a secluded and enclosed garden at the front with a spectacular magnolia tree, as well as a bright courtyard at the rear with mature fig and banana palm. This property provides a fantastic opportunity to live in a stunning Period house with the benefit of additional income.
A beautiful row of houses and only a short walk to the beach, town centre, train station and seafront. The house has glimpses of the sea and St Michaels Mount. There is potential to make off road parking in the rear courtyard. The town of Penzance is an historic port on the south facing shores of Mounts Bay. Along the seafront is the art deco Jubilee pool and regular ferries to the Isles of Scilly. The town centre offers shops, cafes, and restaurants, a variety of historic architecture and the stunning sub-tropical gardens of Morrab and Penlee.
Wide, granite steps lead up to an impressive columned entrance.
