Tenure: Leasehold

THE LOCATION Penryn is an historic and ancient market town with an active community and good everyday facilities including nursery, primary and secondary schools. The town enjoys good communication with Falmouth via its bus service and train station, which links to Truro city and mainline Paddington. Penryn is enjoying something of a renaissance being the home of the University of Cornwall which incorporates Dartington College and also of the regeneration and development of Penryn's inner Harbour and Harbour village. Penryn College is a huge asset to the town, with its excellent reputation and strong facilities. Falmouth town (approximately 2 miles) provides comprehensive shopping, schooling, business and leisure facilities.
The old fire station lies in the heart of Penryn on the corner of Broad Street and St Thomas Street which runs down from the town to the riverside and contains some of Penryn's most historic houses. The location is near the riverside and the site of the former 13th century Glasney College.
 

THE PROPERTY Accessed via its own entrance, this apartment is full of original character. Once in the front door you ascend a flight of stairs that open into an open-plan living area that's well designed to remind the owners of its original purpose. The original beams and trusses are on show and have been lovingly restored allowing for a full height vaulted ceiling. The kitchen area is of great quality and full of modern design and function. Just off the living area is a stylish shower room. All craftsmen are local and handpicked to ensure the renovation of this historic building was handled with dedication and care.
