DESCRIPTION

Perfectly positioned on the top floor of this lift-assisted 2006 built development, enjoying superb elevated views of Falmouth Harbour from its own large roof terrace, a spacious and well appointed 2 bedroom apartment, featuring a master en-suite, dual aspect living/dining room leading to a fully fitted/integrated kitchen and allocated parking. No onward chain.

THE PROPERTY

Positioned on the top floor of this well regarded development, built in 2006 by well respected St Mary's Homes, within a short walk of the seafront, town and harbourside, this well proportioned apartment enjoys extremely elevated and far-reaching views over Falmouth Harbour and town centre. The apartment is extremely well appointed throughout, with two double bedrooms (master en-suite), separate family bathroom, dual aspect living room with balcony and also enjoying the far-reaching views. The property is centrally heated and benefits from double glazing throughout, with attractive interior timber finish.

Undoubtedly, the real rarity of this particular property is the size and orientation of the roof terrace, catching sun through much of the day and into the evening, together with enjoying complete privacy, whilst facing the activity within the harbour - a highly unique set of benefits!
