Property description

A great opportunity to own this well presented one bedroom apartment which is considered to be ideal as a home or an addition to a property portfolio for holiday letting or with longer term tenants.

The apartment is being sold with 'no onward chain' allowing a motivated buyer to progress a swift transaction if desired and the chance to acquire the fixtures and fittings to make this an instant 'turn-key' letting business. Our clients have been successfully letting to longer term tenants on a 6-month assured tenancy contract.

The property has delightful Mediterranean feel with neutral colour schemes complemented by dark stained wood double glazed windows and doors providing plenty of natural light in the areas where you spend the most time.

The compact accommodation includes; entrance into a galley style kitchen, inner lobby, luxurious fully tiled shower/wc, a large dining room with direct access onto the patio and courtyard at the rear and a double bedroom with fitted wardrobe cupboards. The flagstone courtyard has steps leading to a raised area of timber decking which affords superb views across Penryn River to Flushing, Trefusis Head, the Carrick Roads, Roseland Peninsular, harbour and docks. Being part of this popular Packet Quays development, the property has its own secure designated parking space within a communal garage opposite which is a great asset in an area where parking is at a premium. The apartment also enjoys use of the communal slipway where you can launch light watercraft onto the Penryn River.

As you leave the apartment you can turn right and walk up to The Boathouse, Royal Cornwall Yacht Club or along Greenbank to the hotel and Working Boat Public House. Turning left will take you past the Star and Garter, down the High Street and into Falmouth's bustling town centre which has a wide variety of shops, banks, restaurants and bars, public houses, theatre and at the far end of town the Events Square which hosts a variety of nautical festivals throughout the year and Falmouth's Maritime Museum. A longer stroll will take you to Pendennis Castle and the sea front passing Castle and Gyllyngvase Beaches.

As the owners' sole agents, we thoroughly recommend an immediate viewing to secure this property.
