DESCRIPTION

Forming part of a small development consisting of only 8 properties, a superb 2 bedroom ground floor apartment, benefiting from an open aspect to the rear with views over neighbouring Gyllyngvase rooftops and Falmouth Bay in the distance, offering a modern fitted kitchen, garage parking to the front and immediate access to the flourishing communal gardens via the living/dining room.

THE PROPERTY

Formerly the site of the Falmouth Fire Station and subsequently developed into apartments in the early 1980s, Flat 7, Kimber Court is a modern two bedroom ground floor apartment, with the rare appeal of a well tended and generously sized communal garden (approximately a quarter of an acre), accessed immediately off the living room via sliding doors, coupled with superb far-reaching views across neighbouring Gyllyngvase area and Falmouth Bay in the distance.

The apartment comprises in brief,: two double bedrooms, both of which are located off the main hallway and the latter offering an excellent outlook from the rear over the communal gardens, a modern fitted shower room, upgraded kitchen with a range of fitted appliances, and a nicely proportioned living/dining room spanning the full length of the apartment. Notably, the living room provides immediate access onto the communal gardens from a small section of terrace, ideal for sitting out and enjoying the sunny south easterly aspect. To the exterior, a single garage can be found at the front of the development, set within a row of four, clearly labelled 'No 7.

In all, the property offers a particularly rare opportunity to acquire a ground floor apartment with a divine external aspect boasting such well established and tended communal gardens, so rarely seen within such a short distance of the town centre, combined with its close proximity to both Swanpool and Gyllyngvase Beaches - an early viewing is highly recommended by the vendors Sole Agent, Laskowski & Company.

THE LOCATION

Kimber Court is conveniently located between the seafront and town centre, Falmouth's excellent and varied amenities are all within walking distance, including safe sandy bathing beaches, sub-tropical gardens, clifftop and coastal walks, unrivalled sailing and water sports facilities, National Maritime Museum, many restaurants, bars, art centre, galleries, cinema, schools, doctors surgery (on nearby Western Terrace) and public transport facilities.
