DESCRIPTION

In highly sought-after Queen Mary Court, a 'stones throw' from Falmouth's beautiful, safe, sandy bathing beach at Gyllyngvase, a ground floor 2-bedroomed apartment with its own privately owned patio and, although requiring updating, currently benefits from gas fired central heating, garaging and extensive surrounding grounds, enjoying completely unobstructed 180 views.

THE PROPERTY

Queen Mary Court was constructed circa 1986 and comprises just nine properties in one of Falmouth's finest sea-facing positions, with a fabulous ever-changing outlook over Queen Mary Court's own extensive surrounding grounds, to nearby safe, sandy Gyllyngvase Beach, along Falmouth's seafront to Pendennis Point and King Henry VIII's castle, as well as out to sea, to St Anthony's Headland, Lighthouse and the mouth of the Fal Estuary.

Benefiting from the residue of a 999 year lease, the purchaser of Number 5 will also acquire a share of this incredibly valuable freehold, one of the most extensive residential sites anywhere along the entire south Cornish coast.

Located at the foot of Queen Mary Road, adjacent to one of Falmouth's many sub-tropical gardens, Queen Mary Court stands on the edge of Gyllyngvase Beach, within extensive, private grounds which are extremely well tended and include sweeping lawned areas, garaging, allocated visitors parking and 'private' gardens which, in respect of Number 5, include a large paved sun terrace to the front of the apartment and walled 'courtyard' to the rear.

From the private garaging to the rear of the building, easy access is provided to the private entrance door to Number 5 with accommodation briefly comprising: entrance hall, deep living/dining room with sliding door to the patio to the front, generous kitchen/breakfast room with extensive fitted units and space for a full range of appliances. The main bedroom also enjoys the views and features a large walk-in wardrobe with sink and potential to convert to an en-suite. A second double bedroom is situated to the rear of the apartment with adjacent bathroom.

Well managed by the residents committee, Queen Mary Court undoubtedly provides a wonderful opportunity for both permanent and second home purchasers alike to secure a fine 'front-line' home on Falmouth's beautiful seafront and we, the vendor's Sole Agents, strongly recommend all interested prospective purchasers arrange an early viewing appointment to fully appreciate the superb position of this prime coastline residence.

THE LOCATION

Queen Mary Court is set back from Queen Mary Road, adjacent to sub-tropical Queen Mary Gardens, and the picturesque South West Coast Path which leads onto Gyllyngvase Beach as well as to nearby Swanpool, Maenporth and, beyond, to the mouth of the Helford River and shoreline of The Lizard peninsula.

Highly regarded Gyllyngvase Beach Cafe provides bar and restaurant facilities with numerous seafront hotels offering further dining and leisure facilities.

A nearby regular bus service leads into Falmouth's town centre, an approximate twenty minute walk, with its excellent range of shopping and commercial facilities, including branch-line rail link to the cathedral city of Truro, approximately twelve miles distant.

Exceptional water sports facilities are centred around Falmouth Harbour with the day-sailing waters of the Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay widely recognised as perhaps the finest in the country. There are golf courses nearby at Falmouth, Killiow, Truro and Budock Vean, and Newquay Airport, an approximate forty minute drive away, provides regular domestic flights to a number of UK airports.
