DESCRIPTION

Situated on one of Falmouth's finest sea-facing roads within the highly regarded McCarthy & Stone development, a 2 double bedroom ground floor retirement apartment, offering level access, immediate vacant possession and no onward chain.

THE PROPERTY

Number 12 Bay Court is a two double bedroom ground floor apartment within McCarthy & Stone's development on Cliff Road; the apartment enjoys level access from the residents car parking area to the front door. The accommodation comprises, in brief: full length living/dining room with French doors to the kitchen, two double bedrooms, shower room with three-piece suite and further separate WC.

Bay Court occupies a magnificent frontline position on this, arguably one of the county's most sought-after locations, with the development offering superbly landscaped sea-facing gardens, off-road parking facilities, communal lounge and kitchen enjoying the breathtaking views, laundry with sink, washing machines and tumble dryers, guest accommodation, bin store and recycling and a live-in house manager.

THE LOCATION

A short walk along Cliff Road leads to both Castle and Gyllyngvase bathing beaches, beyond which beautiful walks extend, to the east, around spectacular Pendennis Point, to the mouth of the Fal Estuary and, to the west, along the South West Coast Path to neighbouring Swanpool and Maenporth Beaches and the mouth of the Helford River.

High quality hotels along the seafront provide excellent leisure clubs and dining facilities; a bus service provides regular and direct access to the centre of Falmouth town, an approximate fifteen minute walk away, where there is a full range of shopping, commercial and leisure amenities including many restaurants and quayside bars etc.

A rail service from 'The Dell', an approximate five minute walk away, leads to the cathedral city of Truro, approximately twelve miles distant, the county's retailing, commercial, health and administrative centre, with the Hall for Cornwall, the county's main theatre venue, and direct rail link to London (Paddington) with an onward journey time of approximately four and a half hours.

With the limited availability of retirement apartments like Bay Court, we strongly recommend all interested prospective purchasers arrange an early and immediate viewing appointment.
