Full description

Occupying probably the finest position of any apartment in Port Pendennis, Cornwall's finest marina development, a top floor 'penthouse' providing 2 double bedroomed accommodation with private balcony and garage, enjoying breathtaking south-westerly views along the entire length of the marina basin, through the lock gates to the Maritime Museum and across Falmouth's inner harbour to the town's picturesque waterfront.

The Property - Number 3 Roebuck Villas is a superbly positioned apartment in this highly sought-after, gated, secure marina development, with, arguably, the finest views from any of the properties surrounding the water, by virtue of its elevated position 'angled' to provide not only a stunning outlook along the entire length of the marina basin, but through the lock gates to the National Maritime Museum and across the constant activity within Falmouth's inner harbour to the town's picturesque waterfront.

Sun and a private balcony are critical factors for many prospective purchasers requiring such a superb vista and 3 Roebuck Villas not only has a large sheltered private balcony but a highly sunny south-westerly aspect from which to enjoy the afternoon and evening sun.

A communal ground floor entrance foyer provides direct access into the marina basin and broad, well lit and maintained stairways lead to the second floor landing off which there is access to only one other top floor apartment. A video entry phone system provides access into the spacious and well presented accommodation which benefits from gas fired central heating and hardwood-framed double glazing. The entrance hall is a well proportioned reception area with access to loft storage space and panelled-type doors in brilliant white with brass-effect furnishings to all the main rooms. The lounge features a superb, almost 12' wide picture window with double casement doors and matching side screens opening onto the private balcony, a superb sitting out area, with a tall canopy providing shelter when required. Double small paned casement doors lead into the kitchen and dining room, with two windows to the rear elevation and a comprehensively equipped kitchen with integrated appliances including waste disposal unit, hob, split-level double oven, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and automatic washing machine. Two double bedrooms are both of a good size and there is also an attractively appointed spacious bathroom/WC with white suite, complementary tiling and hardwood dado rail.

Externally there is a garage with metal up-and-over door in a nearby block with further useful loft storage area over. Ample visitors parking is also provided and the beautifully landscaped and maintained communal grounds combined with the stone architecture of the houses and apartments around the marina, forming an almost village-like atmosphere of this exclusive development, ideal for permanent, second home and investment purchasers alike.

The Location - Port Pendennis is located on the edge of Falmouth Harbour, between the town centre and seafront.

Consequently, excellent day-to-day shopping facilities, leisure amenities and restaurants etc are literally within a few minutes walk as is Falmouth's picturesque seafront with safe bathing beaches and interconnecting clifftop walks.

Railway stations at both Falmouth Docks and The Dell, also within a few minutes walk away, provide direct access to the cathedral city of Truro, approximately 12 miles to the north of Falmouth, the county's commercial, administrative, retailing, health and educational centre. Unrivalled water sports facilities are available around Falmouth's harbourside with the Carrick Roads (Fal Estuary) and Falmouth Bay recognised as offering perhaps the finest day sailing waters anywhere in the country.

Other nearby attractions include the National Maritime Museum, sub-tropical gardens, Pendennis Castle and Customs House Quay, with pedestrian ferries to Flushing and St Mawes; there are golf courses in Falmouth and at Budock Vean with the residents of Port Pendennis also benefiting from their own tennis court.

Whether as a permanent, second home or investment purchase, we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment of this, one of Port Pendennis's finest top floor apartments.
