DESCRIPTION

With the unusual benefit of a garage and additional workshop/store rooms, and also enjoying superb views over the inner harbour from a glass-fronted balcony, a light and well proportioned upper ground floor apartment, just a few moments' walk from the parish church and town centre, providing 2 double-bedroomed accommodation.

THE PROPERTY

Constructed circa 1970, Harbour Court is an extremely popular purpose-built development, most conveniently positioned for Falmouth town centre and harbourside, benefiting, as the name implies, from harbour views from the rear elevation, over the constant marine activity within Falmouth's inner harbour, to the National Maritime Museum, Pendennis Castle, port area and deep sailing waters of the Fal Estuary, and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula beyond.

Occupying an upper ground floor position, Number 1b benefits from much natural light with windows to all four elevations. The entrance hall features wood block flooring and a view to the harbour and Maritime Museum; a well proportioned double aspect living room has the benefit of replacement bi-folding doors and impressive step-out glass-fronted balcony with stainless steel handrail, where the delightful harbour views can also be enjoyed. The kitchen comprises hard wearing minimal look units which are freestanding and feature stainless steel worksurfaces, and an attractively updated bathroom. Both bedrooms are 'double' size - the master being particularly spacious. Unusually, the property also benefits from a good sized garage with up-and-over door and two additional workshops/store rooms, ideal for dry storage of bikes and sailing equipment etc.

THE LOCATION

Harbour Court occupies a most convenient position on New Street which runs parallel with Arwenack Street 'below' and leads to the harbourside. The parish church is just one hundred yards away, to the side of which a footpath leads directly into the town centre, with its excellent range of shops, commercial and leisure amenities. Nearby Quay Hill leads onto picturesque Customs House Quay, with its quayside bars, visitors pontoon, leisure and fishing boats; beyond which lies Events Square, the National Maritime Museum, seafront and beaches.
