THE LOCATION Positioned at the end of a no through road with no passing traffic and right next to Gylly beach, the owners purchased extra land to the side of the development to protect against intrusive future developments. Falmouth bay faces south and has a reputation for its temperate climate. The bay boasts a number of beaches from the more secluded 'Castle' Beach to 'Tunnel' and of course Gyllyngvase, Falmouth's most popular beach. The activity around Gyllyngvase captures a good deal of custom with the chic Gylly beach Café, which overlooks the beach and sea.Queen Mary Court is just behind the coastal path which facilitates the very popular scenic walks around the famous Pendennis Headland, passing the fascinating Pendennis Castle built by Henry VIII in the 1540s to protect England from France and Spain. To the south a short walk takes you to yet another safe swimming beach, Swanpool, flanked by a fresh water lake, a well-known haven for migrant marine birds. Falmouth is a resort for all seasons, renowned as one of the world's great water sporting centres, boasting some of Europe's most regarded sailing waters with its hidden coves and sheltered estuaries. This historical town presents a fascinating mix of charming individual boutiques and well know chains and high street names.  

THE PROPERTY Built in 1986 and being offered for sale for the first time since new, number 4 boasts amazing views from all rooms that face the sea. There are two good sized bedrooms plus the option to possibly make a third. There are no holiday lets in the development. The original kitchen and bathroom are still in situ and would benefit from an upgrade but all in all this home is in a good condition and only requires some cosmetic upgrades.
