With the undoubted benefit of a private underground garage, a superbly refurbished and reappointed 2-bedroomed first floor apartment which enjoys quite outstanding views across the entire breadth of Falmouth Harbour from the National Maritime Museum and port area to Flushing and unspoilt countryside beyond, with the attraction of a master en-suite.
The Property - Constructed circa 1972, with the benefit of the residue of a 999 year lease, 5 Harbour Court occupies a prime first floor position with both the living room, with private balcony off and second bedroom, enjoying simply outstanding views across the constant boating activity within Falmouth's inner harbour from the National Maritime Museum and port area, to the picturesque south-facing village of Flushing with its surrounding unspoilt countryside, and across the deep waters of the Carrick Roads (Fal Estuary) to the shoreline of The Roseland peninsula.
Comprehensively refurbished and reappointed by the present owners, who have also installed oak flooring in many rooms, added an en-suite within the master bedroom, and refitted both the kitchen and family bathroom with modern and attractive units. The property also benefits from gas fired central heating and replacement uPVC double glazing.
At ground floor level there is undercover parking with Number 5 benefiting from a private garage with electric remote controlled roller-door - a rarity for even purpose-built apartments so close to the town centre!
The Location - New Street runs parallel with Arwenack Street, the main thoroughfare through the town and, consequently, the town's excellent range of shops, services and leisure amenities are literally 'on the doorstep'. Customs House Quay, the harbourside, Event Square and National Maritime Museum are also just a few minutes walk away, thus making this an ideal location for investment, permanent and second home purchasers alike. Keen sailors will relish the proximity of the waterside as well as the stunning marine views; the town's railway station is nearby at The Dell with regular service to the nearby cathedral city of Truro, and the seafront with its safe sandy beaches and beautiful clifftop walks, a ten/fifteen minute walk away.
It is extremely rare to find a purpose-built apartment of such quality and with such stunning harbourside views, private balcony and garaging, so close to Falmouth's excellent shopping and leisure amenities and, therefore, we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment.
