Property description

A convenient, easily accessible and extremely well presented 2-bedroomed ground floor apartment within this immaculately maintained and secure gated development, benefiting from a private patio with attractive outlook and use of a large roof terrace and allocated parking.

The Property

Built in 2000, this purpose-built and impressively maintained/well-run development of apartments is located on the fringe of Penryn town, with easy access to both neighbouring towns of Truro and Falmouth. Number 12a has the added attraction of a private patio overlooking a lightly wooded area and nearby stream.

Situated on the ground floor, leading from a spacious and attractive entrance lobby, the accommodation features newly carpeted and double glazing throughout, with double doors leading from the spacious open-plan living area directly onto the patio. The separate kitchen consists of a broad range of fitted cupboards and drawers with space for usual appliances including a dishwasher if required. The bathroom, also spacious, is fitted with a white suite including a bath with shower attachment. Various fitted cupboards from the hallway provide more than ample storage facilities.

In addition to the private patio for Number 12a, each section of the development benefits from a large roof terrace, shared between just five other apartments and paved for sitting-out. The additional surrounding grounds comprise various impressively landscaped pathways and flower beds, together with a gravelled area divided into allocated and visitor parking spaces. Opposite the development on the other side of Browns Hill there is a further over-flow parking area for visitors.

To summarise, this apartment benefits from an overall 'package', difficult to find elsewhere within this price range and area, and therefore Laskowski & Company recommend all viewings are booked at the earliest opportunity.

The Location

Browns Hill is situated at the northern end of Penryn, with easy access to the neighbouring towns of Truro, Helston and of course the nearby port of Falmouth. Penryn's town centre is within a short walk, where an increasing wide variety of shops, restaurants and amenities can be found, together with public houses. Even more close by is the Penryn railway station with connections to Falmouth and Truro. The university campus at Tremough is also nearby, again a short walk or just a few minutes' drive away.
