THE PROPERTY

A highly impressive two-storey maisonette, located within Maritime House, prominently positioned adjacent to Events Square, close to the Maritime Museum and Falmouth's harbour.

Lift-assisted, the apartment is appointed to the highest standard of finish throughout; benefiting from hardwood double glazed casement windows and doors throughout, oak flooring, skirting boards and door architraves throughout, under-floor heating to the entry-level floor and solar panels.

The apartment is accessed off an attractive and enclosed atrium area with solid timber door into an inviting reception hall with oak turning staircase rising to the first floor with timber handrail and glazed banisters; doors lead from the reception hall to the two bedrooms, main bathroom and under-stair cupboard which houses the water cylinder, under-floor heating and solar controls. The principal bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room and enjoys views over Grove Place to the town beyond.

From the first floor galleried landing, doors provide access to the cloakroom/WC and to a magnificent vaulted living room which opens into a fully fitted kitchen with granite worktops and timber casement doors opening onto a private covered balcony.

All in all, a superbly appointed apartment which is offered for sale with no onward chain and immediate vacant possession and, as the vendor's Sole Agents, we highly recommend an early viewing appointment is made without delay.

THE LOCATION

Located within Maritime House, a landmark building adjacent to Falmouth's Events Square, consequently local restaurants including Rick Steins, Harveys Wharf, Pizza Express and Tesco's Metro are within a few 'yards'; within a few minutes level walk into the nearby town centre where you will find numerous quayside bars, many more restaurants, arts centre, galleries and Falmouth's superb day-to-day amenities.

Additional leisure facilities including the National Maritime Museum, various sports clubs, sub tropical gardens and safe sandy bathing beaches are also within easy walking distance, meaning all of Falmouth's exceptional facilities can be accessed readily and without the use of a car. The nearby Dell railway station provides a regular link to the main Penzance to Paddington link at the cathedral city of Truro, approximately twelve miles distant, the county's retailing, commercial, administrative and health centre.
