DESCRIPTION

Rarely available in this extremely sought-after, exclusive, high quality development, occupying a prominent position on Falmouth's beautiful seafront, a first floor balconied apartment, with level access from the gated parking, with the living room and master en-suite bedroom enjoying the breathtaking, uninterrupted views across the entire breadth of Falmouth Bay, from Pendennis Point and Castle, to the shoreline of The Lizard peninsula and Manacles beyond.

THE PROPERTY

Completed in 2003, The Strand is one of the most sought-after developments on Falmouth's seafront and, consequently, anywhere along the extensive south Cornish coastline.

Set within secure, walled and attractively landscaped gardens, which are well stocked and beautifully tended, the development occupies a prominent position, directly fronting Cliff Road, facing south, enjoying magnificent, uninterrupted views along the seafront, to nearby Castle Beach, Henry VIII's castle, Pendennis Point at the mouth of the Fal Estuary, and across the constant and ever-changing marine activity on sheltered Falmouth Bay, perhaps the country's finest day-sailing area, to the unspoilt shoreline of The Lizard peninsula, from the mouth of the Helford River to the Manacles off the southernmost point of mainland UK.

Apartment Number 7 occupies a prime, direct sea-facing, first floor position, with level access from the secure gated parking to the rear, now available for sale with the benefit of immediate vacant possession and no onward chain.

Accessed via electronic gates from Emslie Road, the property benefits from an allocated parking space with easy, level access to a communal, well lit and maintained entrance foyer, with video entry-phone system, and direct, level access to Number 7. Broad well lit staircases and a lift system provide easy access if required, to the floors above and the lower ground floor 'garden' apartments below.

A private entrance lobby with inset down-lighters, a feature throughout the property, opens into a deep inner hallway with video entry-phone and high quality ash-fronted doors, with contemporary brushed steel furnishings, leading to all rooms. The main reception room provides extremely well proportioned living space (22'6 x 13'7 ), the focal point of course being double casement doors, with matching side screen, opening onto a broad, private, south-facing, glass-fronted balcony with stunning vista over the gardens to the sea beyond.

Also located to the front of the building, therefore enjoying once again the magnificent sea views, is a light double aspect master bedroom, with further double doors to a Juliet balcony and well appointed en-suite shower room with white suite and complementary mosaic tiling. A family bathroom/WC is similarly appointed; there are two further bedrooms to the rear, and the kitchen/breakfast room is comprehensively appointed, is in 'as new' condition, fully fitted with white hi-gloss units, with broad archway providing direct access into the main living room.

Central heating is provided by a new (fitted within the last six months) gas fired combination boiler, there is double glazing in powder-coated frames throughout and a well-run management organisation ensures high standards of maintenance and presentation are maintained, providing an ideal, secure, low maintenance environment for the most discerning of prospective purchasers.

An early viewing appointment is strongly recommended by the vendors' Sole Agents, Laskowski & Company.
