With the rare asset of its own private garage, as well as direct access to an open green area to the rear of the development, a purpose-built lower ground floor apartment, situated in a highly convenient location just up from Falmouth's main street and within a 'stones throw' of the harbourside, with well proportioned double glazed accommodation.

From the roadside, the double glazed front entrance door provides access to the communal hallway, with stairs descending to the lower floor, solely accessing the private entrance to Flat A. Inside the apartment, the light and spacious living area enjoys direct access to a rear pathway with open green beyond conveniently maintained and adopted by Cornwall Council.
