13 Regent Square, Penzance, Cornwall TR18 4BG
A Grade II listed, double fronted, three to four bedroomed, terraced, period property with many original features, including a pillared porch entrance, in this quiet, sought after area of Penzance. It is very close to the promenade (approx 100 yards ) and the wonderful views of Mounts Bay. It was built in 1836 along with all the other houses in this unique Georgian square.
The house has retained most of its period features and some of the hand blown Georgian glass, in the paned windows. There is also a completely renovated lower ground floor providing potential income or annex with access within the house and with its own exclusive access from the rear lane. It also has a private, sunny, patio area or it can be used as a a large kitchen, dining room plus sitting area.
This property has a well maintained and screened front garden for plenty of alfresco dining with sub tropical plants such as palm trees and echiums, which thrive in the shelter of the square.
It is situated in a sought after location in the historic Chapel Street area of Penzance, between the subtropical Morrab Gardens and St Mary's Churchyard, within a close, level walk to the town and 100 yards from the seafront and the iconic, open air, Jubilee Bathing Pool.
Recently, a new combi gas boiler has been fitted providing gas central heating to all areas of the house. The front exterior of the house and windows has been painted. Extensive work has taken place in the basement which was dug out and fitted with a new damp course and steel structural ceiling beams, providing the whole house with great stability.
