Forming part of an imposing period building and located along one of Falmouth s most desirable harbour-facing roads, a well presented modern, 1 bedroom first floor apartment, benefiting from highly sought-after off-road parking to the rear and offering immediate vacant possession with the convenience of no onward chain.

THE PROPERTY

Situated almost opposite the renowned Greenbank Hotel, 'Treffry' is a terrific one bedroom apartment, located within approximately five minutes of Falmouth s bustling town centre, forming part of a period building comprising of six individual properties in total.

Upon entry from Stratton Terrace, a delightful frontage with central lawned garden offers views of the river towards Flushing, leading onto a traditional entrance porch for the building, in turn entering into a communal hallway with staircase rising to the first floor landing. A private entrance door for 'Treffry' is located to the left-hand side.

Within the apartment, an initial hallway leads to the open-plan kitchen/living/dining room, situated to the left, with shower room located centrally and, to the right, a double bedroom with beautiful traditional features.

Outside, and located almost immediately adjacent to the private entrance door, a useful storage cupboard can be found, solely for the benefit of 'Treffry'. A communal front garden can be enjoyed with its picturesque views over the river towards Flushing and distant countryside beyond. At the rear, a pedestrian access leads to a convenient parking area which can be accessed by vehicle from Penwerris Lane, whereby spaces are reserved for the apartment owners.

In all, a superb bolthole or investment, with excellent proximity to the town and Greenbank area.

THE LOCATION

'Greenbank House' is perfectly positioned for Falmouth's excellent nearby water sports facilities with both the marina and Royal Cornwall Yacht Club at Greenbank within easy walking distance.

Falmouth's town centre is a short walk away where an excellent range of shops, commercial and leisure amenities including many restaurants, quayside bars, galleries, art centre, National Maritime Museum and additional sports clubs can be found. Along the beautiful seafront, walks lead to Pendennis Point, safe bathing beaches at Castle and Gyllyngvase, and to the South West Coast Path which continues beyond Swanpool and Maenporth to the Helford River and shoreline of The Lizard peninsula.

Excellent bus and rail services lead to the cathedral city of Truro, approximately twelve miles distant, the county's retailing, commercial, administrative, health and educational centre with main-line rail link to London (Paddington) - journey time approximately four and a half hours.
