DESCRIPTION

A lift assisted first floor apartment in this much admired modern development, within extensive grounds of a former manor which, through Gyllyngdune Gardens, leads to the seafront and Gyllyngvase and Castle Beaches, providing well proportioned and luxuriously appointed 2-bedroomed, 2 bath/shower roomed accommodation, which benefits from allocated parking and a share of the freehold - just 10 minutes' walk from Falmouth town centre and harbourside.

THE PROPERTY

Originally dating from the early 1800's, Gyllyngdune Manor was re-developed approximately seven years ago, to provide twenty seven high quality apartments, set within extensive communal grounds which, through adjacent Gyllyngdune Gardens, leads to Falmouth's seafront (Cliff Road), Castle and Gyllyngvase Beaches. Apartment 18 occupies an excellent first floor position, with a south-west facing balcony which, like the living area, enjoys lovely views to Falmouth Bay and the coastline surrounding Maenporth and the mouth of the Helford River beyond.

Benefiting from internal lift access from a well kept and spacious entrance foyer, the apartment itself is spotlessly presented and superbly appointed throughout, with high quality features including video entry-phone system, sealed unit double glazing, gas fired central heating, engineered oak flooring, two luxuriously refitted tiled bath/shower rooms with high quality sanitary ware, and superbly fitted kitchen with integrated appliances and large storage cupboard/utility from the hallway.

An allocated parking space is provided, extensive communal grounds include sweeping lawns, there is a resident's bike store, and an annual maintenance charge caters for all external maintenance, and each flat owner benefits from a share of the freehold.

With the added advantages of no holiday letting or pet restrictions, we strongly recommend interested prospective purchasers seeking a highly specified, low maintenance retirement, second home or investment property, arrange an early viewing appointment.

THE LOCATION

Gyllyngdune Manor occupies an ideal position, adjacent to Gyllyngdune Gardens, within just a few moments' walk of the seafront (Cliff Road), Gyllyngvase and Castle Beaches. Beautiful clifftop walks continue around Pendennis Point to the east, and along the South West Coast Path, to Swanpool and Maenporth to the west. Sub-tropical Fox Rose Hill and Queen Mary Gardens, as well as Gyllyngdune Gardens, are nearby, and an approximate ten minute walk leads past Falmouth town railway halt to Events Square, the National Maritime Museum, harbourside and town centre.
