DESCRIPTION

Within Falmouth's most recently constructed retirement development, by McCarthy & Stone, a fine retirement apartment located on the (lift assisted) top floor, with both its own balcony and the large communal terrace adjacent, enjoying fine views over the town and marine activity within the harbour, with particularly spacious and luxuriously appointed accommodation.

THE PROPERTY

One of the finest positioned apartments within this modern retirement development (available to those aged 55+), located 'around the corner' from the Maritime Museum, and therefore a level walk from the shops, restaurants and amenities of the town centre - quite an unusual and sought-after benefit!

The interior of the apartment itself is an excellent size, particularly well equipped, with features such as under-floor heating and offers a spacious living room with large balcony off, facing south, and enjoys views of the harbour and the attractive terraces above the town centre. The integrated kitchen is particularly well equipped with top of the range appliances by Bosch, including dishwasher, fridge/freezer and oven. The large double bedroom is extremely well equipped with walk-in dressing room and tall windows to the south side. The shower room is spacious and luxuriously appointed with a 'rainfall' shower unit.

In addition to the private balcony for Number 38, and literally next door to this apartment, is the development's large roof terrace, being one of the most elevated outdoor terraces in the area; this stunning sunny patio area commands views over Port Pendennis Marina to the harbour and across the activity within the town centre.

For those purchasers requiring additional accommodation for visiting family or friends, a guest suite is located on the ground floor, which can be booked and reserved with the house manager. A superb residents lounge has been lavishly appointed, and twin patio doors access a garden with further sunny sitting-out areas in addition to the stunning roof terrace.

THE LOCATION

Bar Terrace lies within a level walk from the harbourside and town centre, in which can be found Falmouth's excellent range of shops, commercial and leisure amenities, including varied restaurants and numerous shops and cafes. Also within easy walking distance is Falmouth's picturesque seafront, with a walk around Pendennis Point, safe bathing beaches and footpath - the South West Coast Path - which leads to Swanpool, Maenporth and the mouth of the Helford River beyond.
