Full description

Occupying what can justifiably be described as one of the finest positions on Falmouth's increasingly select and sought-after seafront, a beautifully presented first floor sea-facing apartment, comprehensively and most tastefully updated by the present owners, providing faultlessly presented and superbly appointed 2 double bedroom accommodation, with 2 refitted bath/shower rooms and full breadth balcony which enjoys the stunning outlook over Gyllyngvase Beach and Falmouth Bay beyond.

The Property - 'Seabank' is a small development comprising just seven apartments, the owners of which benefit from an equal share of the freehold in addition to the 999 year lease which commenced in 1985.

Situated at the foot of Gyllyngvase Hill and directly fronting the seafront, 'Seabank' occupies an exceptional position directly opposite Gyllyngvase Beach, over which beautiful views are enjoyed over the constant activity within Falmouth Bay, to the surrounding shoreline of Pendennis Point and The Lizard peninsula.

Indeed, a more convenient position to Falmouth's main bathing beach is difficult to imagine and, if in the height of the summer or the depths of the winter, a more perfect location is difficult to find whether for a morning swim, coffee in Gylly Beach Cafe, evening stroll along the clifftop, or regular bus service into the town centre, all of which are literally 'on the doorstep'.

Allocated car parking is provided to the front of the development and, if preferred, a secondary door to the side of the development provides level stair-free access. Flat 2 has been the subject of a comprehensive 'top to toe' refurbishment by the present owners who have created a faultlessly presented contemporary home which, undoubtedly, will prove of great appeal tol young professionals, retirement and second home purchasers alike.

Works have included the replacement of internal doors and joinery, the tasteful refitting of both bath/shower rooms, new floor coverings, tasteful neutral redecoration and the refitting of a contemporary open-plan kitchen which, together with the living area and 'master' bedroom, open onto the full breadth balcony - a stunning vantage point from which to see and hear the sea, just yards away.

The Location - As well as being perfectly placed for Gyllyngvase Beach, a number of Falmouth's sub-tropical gardens are just a few minutes' walk away and beyond which, the South West Coast Path leads to Pendennis Point and the mouth of the Fal Estuary in one direction, and Swanpool Beach, Maenporth and the mouth of the Helford River in the other.

A short walk up neighbouring Gyllyngvase Road and down Avenue Road, leads to Falmouth town railway station, a further five minutes or so beyond which is Events Square, the National Maritime Museum, harbourside and town centre. Falmouth for the last two years has been voted as one of the best places to live anywhere in the UK by the readers of The Sunday Times, and as the prime seafront area cannot be extended in length, we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers view this particularly well presented apartment.
