DESCRIPTION

Ideally located within a few minutes' walk of Falmouth seafront, Castle Beach, the town centre and harbourside, a most attractively refurbished and refitted 2 double bedroom apartment, arranged over 2 storeys, with the added benefit of a large sunny rear garden and secondary access onto Bar Lane.

THE PROPERTY

Since purchasing the property in 2017, our clients have undertaken a most thorough scheme of refurbishment and refitting of the property, which includes refitting of the kitchen, overhaul of the central heating, re-insulating (including sound proofing in between the lower apartment), re-plastering and re-decorating all rooms, re-fitting of the bathroom, clearing and tidying of the garden, relaying the decked walkway, exposing of original stonework, installation of fitted wardrobes and re-carpeting and re-tiling of all rooms.

The property now feels light, stylish, spacious and particularly homely. Unusually for an apartment, the garden is of a generous size and catches sun throughout the day and into the evening, and is accessed from a level walkway leading from the kitchen/breakfast room. Besides the highly convenient position, which provides a level easy walk to the town centre and Event s Square in particular, the apartment enjoys a lovely open aspect from the front, encompassing the town and even a glimpse of the harbour.

THE LOCATION

Bar Terrace lies within a level walk from the harbourside and town centre, in which can be found Falmouth's excellent range of shops, commercial and leisure amenities, including varied restaurants and numerous sports and sailing clubs. Also within easy walking distance is Falmouth's picturesque seafront, with walk around Pendennis Point, safe bathing beaches and footpath, the South West Coast Path, which leads to Swanpool, Maenporth and the mouth of the Helford River beyond.

Solely in the ownership of the top apartment, an unusually large, particularly sunny rear garden, with direct access onto Bar Lane and an attractive, recently upgraded decked walkway provides level access to the kitchen/breakfast room. A patio area, bordered by attractive timber fencing, catches sun throughout the day, including the evening, and both side boundaries feature attractive stone walling.
