Full description

On the instructions of the executors: available with immediate vacant possession and no onward chain, a 2 double bedroomed, 2-storey 'duplex' apartment benefiting from garaging and occupying part of the ground and first floors in this particularly well-positioned seafront development, enjoying breathtaking, unobstructed and southerly-facing views directly out to sea and across the entire breadth of Falmouth Bay from Pendennis Point and castle, to the shoreline of The Lizard peninsula, mouth of the Helford River and Manacles beyond.

The Property - Boscawen flats occupies one of the finest positions on Falmouth's seafront, looking directly out to sea, with the main rooms enjoying a breathtaking and completely unobstructed outlook over the constant marine activity within Falmouth Bay, destination of an increasing number of cruise liners, a place of shelter for ships during stormy weather and 'playground' for leisure craft of all shapes and sizes.

Number 2 is a duplex 'apartment' which occupies part of the ground and first floor of this prestigious development which fronts Cliff Road, Falmouth's seafront, with Emslie Road to the rear providing vehicular access into a 'courtyard' of garages, one of which is included with the sale of Number 2.

Level access from this parking area leads to the entrance which is found to the rear of the development; an entrance porch enters into a deep reception hall, off which there is a useful cloakroom/WC/utility and turning staircase to the bedroom landing, off which are found the two double bedrooms, one sea-facing and benefiting from an en-suite shower room, and the main bathroom/WC.

At entry floor 'level' is a kitchen with comprehensive range of built-in units and the main living room, located at the front of the building, which has a full width patio door with part glass-fronted balcony providing a wonderful vantage point to enjoy the sea views, from inside as well as out.

Throughout, the property benefits from double glazing and economic night storage heating with the added benefit of immediate vacant possession and no onward chain. A management committee ensures the continued maintenance of the building and grounds which, to the front, include broad lawned terraces with shrub borders and residents pathway with steps onto the seafront, to Castle and Gyllyngvase beaches, and the lovely cliff tops walks around Pendennis Point and to Swanpool and Maenporth beyond.

The Location - With no property between Boscawen flats and the sea, prospective purchasers can be assured of their acquisition of a limited and, no doubt, appreciating asset, bearing in mind how few properties exist with such uncompromised views.

Castle and Gyllyngvase beaches are but a few minutes walk away and a regular bus service from the seafront leads regularly into Falmouth's town centre which remains within an approximately ten/fifteen minute walk. Consequently, a full range of commercial, retailing and leisure amenities are close at hand including an excellent range of restaurants, harbourside bars, sports clubs and galleries. A nearby railway station provides easy access to the cathedral city of Truro, approximately twelve miles distant, the county's retailing, commercial and administrative centre, from where there is also a mainline rail link to London (Paddington) with a journey time of approximately four and a half hours. With Falmouth's sub-tropical gardens, National Maritime Museum and English Heritage Site is also within easy reach, to Boscawen flats offers a rare opportunity to purchase a home perfect for permanent and second home purchasers alike. An immediate viewing appointment is therefore strongly recommended.
