DESCRIPTION

A highly unusual opportunity to purchase a 'detached' maisonette, just off Falmouth's seafront, part of Boscawen Flats whose grounds extend to Cliff Road, providing particularly well proportioned 2-storey accommodation, currently 1 bedroom but with potential to provide 2, and with glimpses from a large living room with Juliet balcony to the sea. An ideal permanent or 'lock-up and leave' home. Early viewing unhesitatingly recommended.

THE PROPERTY

Number 11 Boscawen Flats is, in fact, a 'detached' two-storey maisonette, situated on the Emslie Road side of Boscawen Flats, whose grounds extend to Cliff Road - the seafront.

Number 11 currently provides well proportioned one bedroom accommodation, although there is scope to create a second bedroom if required, due to the extremely spacious first floor living room which has a Juliet balcony and glimpses of Falmouth Bay.

Boscawen Flats are ideal for those seeking a main residence or second home, as holiday and long-term letting are not allowed, and Number 11 benefits from a one/eleventh share of the freehold which, we understand, is vested in the management company, made up of the eleven leaseholders.

THE LOCATION

The grounds of Boscawen Flats, over which Number 11 has full benefit, provide direct access onto Cliff Road (the seafront) with a level walk then leading to Castle Beach in one direction, and Gyllyngvase Beach in the other. A short walk along Emslie, De Pass, Melvill and Lansdowne Roads leads to The Dell railway station, beyond which is Events Square, harbourside and town centre - just a ten minute walk away.
