Full description

A particularly well proportioned first floor apartment within this secure gated development, providing 2 double bedroomed accommodation with spacious open-plan living room, private balcony which overlooks the mature communal gardens and adjoining stream, ample parking and communal roof terrace - an ideal permanent, investment or holiday home.

The Property - Built circa 2000, as the name implies, of a traditional-type construction, this well maintained and run development is located on the northern outskirts of Penryn town, yet within walking distance of the local amenities, and within easy access to the neighbouring towns of Falmouth, Truro, Helston and Redruth.

Gated vehicular and pedestrian access provides a secure environment, ample parking for residents and visitors is provided with the surrounding communal gravelled courtyards and gardens well-maintained, well stocked and tended. The development consists of five attached blocks with Number 14 benefiting from a position away from the main road, and from the living room and private balcony, an attractive outlook is enjoyed over the well stocked communal gardens which adjoin a stream.

From the ground floor communal secure entrance lobby, a staircase rises to the first floor landing with private timber panelled door to Number 14. The central entrance hallway provides access to all rooms with further double doors to a good sized storage cupboard and separate airing cupboard housing the hot water tank with slatted shelving over. The open-plan L-shaped living room is well proportioned with uPVC double glazed French doors opening onto the private balcony, panelled door from this room opens into the kitchen and the bathroom and two double bedrooms lead from the entrance hall with both bedrooms enjoying an outlook over the communal gravelled areas and adjoining wooded banks.

The apartment benefits from uPVC double glazing throughout and economic night storage heaters and whether searching for a permanent, investment or holiday home, it is without hesitation that as the vendors' Sole Agents, an early viewing appointment is advised.
