Full description

A stylish ground floor 1-bedroomed apartment forming part of a prominent Regency period building, which has been renovated to an exceptional standard, whilst retaining a wealth of original character and commands direct water views over Greenbank, the Penryn River and Flushing village.

The Property - Originally a prominent Regency period residence, occupying one of Falmouth's most sought-after addresses, since converted into just six apartments, 'Polruan' comprises a beautifully renovated example which retains a wealth of original features including plaster moulded cornicing, feature fireplace (with wood-burning stove), sizeable bay sash window with pine panelling revealing the stunning outlook, stripped wood flooring and doors, and deep skirtings,

A superb reception room, complete with a substantial bay sash window, takes full advantage of the shared front garden outlook with water views to Flushing beyond; there is a stunning SieMatic kitchen with Siemens appliances, also enjoying the river views, and a generous double bedroom with stylish contemporary shower room is complemented by a separate WC/cloakroom off the entrance hall.

To the front of the property there is a deep communal garden with arched entrance, circular lawn and sitting-out terrace, and to the rear, 'Polruan' benefits from a privately owned parking space, readily accessed from Penwerris Lane behind.

Currently a lucrative source of letting income with an anticipated gross revenue of approaching £20,000 for 2016, 'Polruan' is, in our opinion, an ideal investment proposition or, indeed, a lovely home, full of charm, character and quality.

The Location - Stratton Terrace within Greenbank benefits from being one of Falmouth's most sought-after addresses, due to its individual substantial period homes which enjoys fabulous views across the Penryn River towards Flushing, and Falmouth Harbour.

Ease of access is enjoyed to the Greenbank Hotel, yacht club, harbourside and Falmouth's town centre, just five minutes distant.
