DESCRIPTION

Occupying an elevated position in this highly sought-after harbourside development and benefiting from panoramic views over Falmouth Harbour, from Flushing and Trefusis Point to the deep sailing waters of the Carrick Roads and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula, a well presented and proportioned 2 double bedroomed apartment, with 2 balconies, 2 bath/shower rooms, secure 2-car parking and immediate vacant possession with no onward chain.

THE LOCATION

The Packet Quays is a highly regarded waterside development, most conveniently positioned for Falmouth's town centre and within just a few moments walk along Greenbank from the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club.

The location is a haven for keen yachtsmen with Falmouth's main marina on nearby North Parade, deep water moorings available upon application from the harbour master, various sailing and rowing clubs, and easy access onto the excellent day-sailing waters of the Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay, widely regarded as perhaps the best in the country.

Ideal for those who intend to keep their use of a car to a minimum, Falmouth's excellent town centre amenities are literally just a few minutes walk away and include a wide variety of shops, galleries, art centre, quayside bars, restaurants and many leisure amenities including a multi screen cinema, the National Maritime Museum, sub-tropical gardens and safe sandy bathing beaches. Passenger ferries from nearby Prince of Wales Pier lead to the picturesque villages of Flushing and St Mawes, and regular bus and rail services provide direct and easy access to the cathedral city of Truro, approximately twelve miles distant.

THE PROPERTY

Occupying an elevated position within the highly sought-after Packet Quays development, most conveniently positioned for Falmouth's town centre and picturesque waterfront, 3 Smugglers Row, is an attractively presented and particularly well proportioned two double bedroomed apartment, benefiting from secure under-ground parking for two cars and magnificent, far-reaching views over the constant marine activity within Falmouth Harbour, from Flushing and Trefusis Point to the National Maritime Museum, port area, deep sailing waters of the Carrick Roads, and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula beyond.

Accessed from attractive paved terracing and a well lit stairwell which serves just two other apartments, the property benefits from a light, bright and spacious living room (17' x 17'), with L-shaped, twin, double glazed patio doors opening onto a harbour-facing sitting-out and dining terrace. Double doors lead from the living room into a large and superbly refurbished galley-style kitchen, 16' in length, with full range of white high-gloss units, integrated appliances and port-hole window. An inner hall leads to the master bedroom which features a dressing lobby, en-suite shower room and 'private', secondary, harbour-facing balcony, as well as to the second double bedroom, which also benefits from built-in cupboards, the family bathroom/WC and a useful utility cupboard with modern gas fired boiler providing domestic hot water and central heating.
