Full description

A superbly reappointed and faultless first floor apartment providing 2 double bedrooms, 2 private balconies, and a garage, occupying one of the best positions of any apartment in Port Pendennis - Cornwall's finest marina development - enjoying delightful south-westerly views along the entire length of the marina basin, afternoon sun, and a winter view of Falmouth Harbour and Flushing from the second bedroom.

The Location - Set in beautifully landscaped, tranquil and well maintained grounds, with the varied architectural combination of houses and apartments providing a harmonious aspect, Port Pendennis Village is located on the edge of Falmouth Harbour, between the town centre and seafront. This location provides excellent day-to-day shopping facilities, leisure amenities and restaurants etc, all literally within a few minutes' walk, as is Falmouth's picturesque seafront with safe bathing beaches and interconnecting clifftop walks.

Other nearby attractions include the National Maritime Museum and Events Square, sub-tropical gardens, Pendennis Castle and Customs House Quay, with pedestrian ferries to Flushing and St Mawes. There are golf courses in Falmouth and Budock Vean, leisure facilities nearby, and residents of Port Pendennis also benefit from their own tennis courts.

Railway stations at both Falmouth Docks and The Dell, each a few minutes' walk away, provide fast direct access to the cathedral city of Truro - the county's health, administrative, retailing and commercial centre - as well as to the Exeter University campus in Penryn and the direct line to London. Unrivalled water sports facilities are available around Falmouth's harbourside, with the Carrick Roads (Fal Estuary) and Falmouth Bay recognised as offering perhaps the finest day-sailing waters anywhere in the country.

The Property - 5 Roebuck Villas is an ideally positioned apartment in this highly sought-after, secure gated marina development By virtue of its elevated south-westerly facing position, it enjoys one of the finest views along the entire length of the marina basin from any of the properties surrounding the water and, from a private sunny balcony, looks toward the lock gates, the observation tower of the National Maritime Museum, and parts of Falmouth old town beyond.

Roebuck Villas provides access to just six apartments, two on each of three floors, with a video-entry system, courtesy lighting on timer switching, and fully carpeted staircases and spacious landings, cleaned weekly. Private garages are housed in a nearby block and there is ample secure parking. A critical factor for many prospective purchasers requiring such a superb vista, the sunny south-westerly aspect, combined with a private balcony, brings to perfection enjoyment of afternoon and evening sun. The apartment itself has been superbly reappointed by the present owners.
