DESCRIPTION

Occupying a superb elevated position above the town centre and enjoying one of the finest views from any balcony within the town, which also catches sun through the morning into the afternoon, a 2 bedroom apartment within highly desirable Packet Quays , a traditionally constructed purpose-built development, popular as permanent, holiday let or second homes, with the added attraction of underground parking.

THE PROPERTY

Unusually for a property of this type in Falmouth, the apartment benefits from a sunny broad balcony enjoying superb panoramic views of Falmouth Harbour and the busy boating activity towards The Roseland peninsula. The apartment is perfect as a holiday let, permanent or second home, occupying a highly elevated position yet quiet position, close to the top of Falmouth High Street with secure underground parking area below.

THE LOCATION

The Packet Quays is a highly regarded development, completed approximately thirty years ago, moments' from Falmouth's town centre and within just a few moments' walk along Greenbank to the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club. The location is, of course, a haven for keen yachtsmen with Falmouth's main marina nearby on North Parade, deep water moorings available upon application from the harbour master, numerous sailing and rowing clubs etc, all of which benefit from the excellent day-sailing waters of the Carrick Roads (Fal Estuary), nearby tree-lined creeks, Helford River and Falmouth Bay, widely regarded as perhaps the best in the country.

Accessed either via an internal stairwell from the garaged parking below, a pedestrian door from Falmouth High Street or a walkway from Harbour Terrace, this highly rare apartment is perched high above the old High Street and enjoys one of the finest and most interesting aspects from any apartment in the town. Rarely do we find a property which enjoys this outlook from a broad and sunny balcony. The apartment also has the benefit of a private enclosed courtyard entrance and highly secure garaged parking.
