Full description

A generously proportioned and luxuriously appointed ground floor apartment within Falmouth's most recently constructed retirement development, by McCarthy & Stone, within a short level walk of the town centre, also benefiting from its own private balcony and access to the large communal terrace which enjoys fine views over the town and marine activity within the harbour.

The Property - One of the larger 1 bedroom apartments within this modern retirement development (available to those aged 55+), located 'around the corner' from the Maritime Museum, and therefore a level walk from the shops, restaurants and amenities of the town centre - quite an unusual and sought-after benefit.

This particular apartment is easily accessible from the main front entrance door and features particularly well equipped and spacious accommodation with underfloor heating. A large living room accesses a large south east facing balcony. The kitchen, which enjoys an attractive overlook over the communal garden, is well equipped with top of the range Bosch appliances. The large double bedroom is extremely well equipped with walk-in dressing room. The shower room is spacious and also luxuriously appointed.

In addition to the private balcony for Number 2, is the development's large roof terrace, being one of the most elevated outdoor terraces in the area; this stunning sunny patio area commands views over Port Pendennis Marina to the harbour and across the activity within the town centre.

For those purchasers requiring additional accommodation for visiting family or friends, a guest suite is located on the lower ground floor, which can be booked and reserved with the house manager. A superb residents lounge has been lavishly appointed, and twin patio doors access a garden with further sunny sitting-out areas – in addition to the stunning roof terrace.

The Location - Bar Terrace lies within a level walk from the harbourside and town centre, in which can be found Falmouth's excellent range of shops, commercial and leisure amenities, including varied restaurants and numerous shops and cafes. Also within easy walking distance is Falmouth's picturesque seafront, with a walk around Pendennis Point, safe bathing beaches and footpath - the South West Coast Path - which leads to Swanpool, Maenporth and the mouth of the Helford River beyond.
