Description

The location This is one of our favourite positions along Falmouth's sea front - away from the main 'row' of development and proudly sitting as the final building on Castle Drive before the arm of headland rises to Pendennis Point. This is a peaceful, tranquil spot whereby one is so close to the water that you can hear the lap of the waves on the shore of the beaches below. You have a choice of the secluded sandy beaches of Castle and Tunnel or a short walk away is the ever popular Gyllyngvase complete with its chic, bustling café and safe swimming waters. Along the seafront is an array of architecture and building, all added to over the years with careful consideration of the desirability of the area and now providing various places for dining and leisure activities.

A short walk away is Falmouth centre - a thriving and vibrant town with an eclectic mixture of independent and national shops including Marks and Spencer, many galleries showcasing local art and crafts and an excellent and varied selection of places to eat and drink. Events Square and the National Maritime Museum regularly host activities and events throughout the year including Falmouth Classics, Falmouth Week and the Oyster and Sea Shanty festivals. No wonder Falmouth is consistently voted in the top five favourite places to live in the UK.

The property Castle Bay has been carefully designed to maximise the quality and breadth of south facing views across the bay from each apartment whilst being sure to create inspiring living spaces and bedrooms without compromise. Pennance is located on the first floor and to the left which means it is one of few designs enjoying not only a large balcony to the front South aspect but also a second more sheltered and private balcony to the side facing West. The apartment has been totally redecorated inside and outside and the accommodation is spacious, practical and highly desirable; a two double bedroom design, master en-suite, bathroom and 'L shaped' living space meaning that the view can be enjoyed through the full height windows at any time of day. All is thoughtfully designed and equipped to a very high specification including Parapan kitchen, Corian work surfaces, Neff appliances, under floor heating, timber floors in the reception and wool rich carpets in the bedrooms. The property also benefits from an allocated parking space in the undercover secure ground floor car park. This is a fabulous apartment which would be a stunning place to live or excellent second home. Recommended for internal viewing without any hesitation.
