Tenure: Leasehold

THE LOCATION Roscarrack Gardens was built during 2013/14 in the established gardens of the Roscarrack Nursing Home on the rural outskirts of Falmouth. Located off Bickland water Road and beside a regular bus stop, the development is conveniently situated approximately one mile from the town, harbourside and Swanpool Beach.  

THE PROPERTY This outstanding and unique retirement scheme in Falmouth, comprises eight bungalows and two apartments. It was designed and built by a reputable small developer who specialises in homes for the retired and whose knowledge and experience has undoubtedly created somewhere very special at Roscarrack Gardens.
Number 11 is detached and enjoys a favoured position with its own private terrace and beautifully kept communal gardens.
The bungalow is comfortably proportioned with two double bedrooms, the main with en-suite bathroom in addition to the wet room/utility. 'Living' space is generous; the lounge leads into a lovely fitted kitchen with unused Neff appliances and dining area with French doors onto the terrace. The bungalow is well designed and specified; a gas boiler fuels underfloor heating, windows are UPVC double glazed, and quality carpets and ceramic tiles are fitted. All is practical too, with excellent storage space throughout.
Number 11 is one of the first homes to be resold in this much admired scheme. Its 999 year lease and management company with service charge, covering many of the items which would normally be the responsibility of the individual, will provide great reassurance for many. This combined with a select environment of like minded neighbours, makes this an outstanding and worthwhile opportunity for the 'right' purchaser.
