DESCRIPTION

Occupying a superb 'front-line' position, perched over the water and enjoying stunning views across the full breadth of Falmouth Harbour, from Greenbank, Flushing and surrounding countryside, to Trefusis Point, the Fal Estuary and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula beyond, a delightful first floor 2-bedroomed apartment in the highly sought-after Packet Quays development, just a few minutes' walk from Falmouth's vibrant centre - the town having just been voted by the readers of The Sunday Times as Britain's Best Place to Live .

THE PROPERTY

Janes Court is part of the highly acclaimed Packet Quays development which occupies a superb position directly fronting Falmouth's pictuesque and extremely active harbour, away from passing traffic, between Greenbank and the town centre, whose shops, restaurants and bars are just a few moments' walk away.

'Perched' over the water and with a large living room, with Juliet balcony, and an attractively fitted kitchen enjoying the mesmerising views, 3 Janes Court has recently been the subject of a programme of refurbishment works, including the installation of a new gas fired boiler, floor coverings and electricity consumer unit etc, to create a lovely, secure, first floor home which, undoubtedly, will prove of immense appeal to second home, investment and retirement purchasers alike.

Situated off a picturesque cobbled courtyard, a slate-paved opeway leads to a staircase providing access to just three other properties. 3 Janes Court provides an extremely well proportioned living room, off which is the well appointed kitchen, and an arched hallway which leads to two bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes, and a superbly reappointed shower room with contemporary white suite.

A private single garage provides secure storage as well as parking; the owner of Number 3 benefits, we understand, from dinghy storage, and the residents of The Packet Quays have an attractively landscaped garden, together with use of a slipway, which provides direct access onto the sailing waters below.

A reasonable maintenance charge of circa £1,208 for the current financial year covers all aspects of communal maintenance and buildings insurance etc, providing low maintenance living so much in demand from modern society.

With the additional benefit of immediate vacant possession, with no onward chain, we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment.
