DESCRIPTION

A superb, 2-storey maisonette in this ever-popular harbourside development, situated off Falmouth's Old High Street and with the town's excellent amenities all within walking distance, providing well presented and proportioned 3 bedroom, 2 bath/shower room accommodation, benefiting from secure underground parking, and its own 'private' access leading onto a broad paved sun terrace with glazed balustrading and magnificent views across the breadth of Falmouth Harbour from Flushing and Trefusis Point to the deep sailing waters of the Carrick Roads.

THE LOCATION

The Packet Quays is a highly regarded waterside development, most conveniently positioned for Falmouth's town centre and within just a few moments walk along Greenbank from the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club.

The location is a haven for keen yachtsmen with Falmouth's main marina on nearby North Parade, deep water moorings available upon application from the harbour master, various sailing and rowing clubs, and easy access onto the excellent day-sailing waters of the Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay, widely regarded as perhaps the best in the country.

Ideal for those who intend to keep their use of a car to a minimum, Falmouth's excellent town centre amenities are literally just a few minutes walk away and include a wide variety of shops, galleries, art centre, quayside bars, restaurants and many leisure amenities including a multi screen cinema, the National Maritime Museum, sub-tropical gardens and safe sandy bathing beaches. Passenger ferries from nearby Prince of Wales Pier lead to the picturesque villages of Flushing and St Mawes, and regular bus and rail services provide direct and easy access to the cathedral city of Truro, approximately twelve miles distant.

THE PROPERTY

7 Smugglers Row is, in our opinion, one of the most appealing properties in The Packet Quays, being a two-storey maisonette which benefits from its own 'private' access leading directly onto a broad, paved terrace, with glazed balustrading, leading to a broad arched entrance into the accommodation. Enjoying an elevated position, the views from the terrace and living accommodation are particularly good, overlooking the constant and ever-changing marine activity in Falmouth's inner harbour from the picturesque village of Flushing to Trefusis Point, the deep sailing waters of the Fal Estuary and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula beyond.

Well presented and maintained throughout, the gas centrally heated accommodation includes a large open-plan living room with ample lounge and dining space, together with a double aspect sitting area from where, again, the beautiful views are enjoyed. The kitchen has been attractively appointed with a comprehensive range of white units and, on the lower level, an inner hall leads to the bedroom accommodation which includes a master with dressing area and en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms, and a family bathroom/WC with white suite.

The property benefits from a secure underground car parking space and, at the foot of the development, residences have a communal garden and there is a slipway providing access onto the water.
