Description

The location Challenger Quay is an exclusive and much sought after development built around year 2000 in an incredible waterside position.
The development lies on a promontory, alongside Port Pendennis marina, the visitors' marina, lifeboat slipway and County Wharf - destination for the town's visiting cruise liners.
Number 1 is undoubtedly one of the 'best seats in the house', set on the water's edge, providing a fascinating, ever changing and unbeatable marine view.
All the more remarkable is that residents of Challenger Quay enjoy access over the entrance to the marina, to Events Square, the Maritime Museum and Falmouth town beyond, all just a few moments level walk away.
A short walk from the apartment will take you to Falmouth town with its eclectic mixture of national shops, and independents, together with galleries showcasing local arts and crafts, as well as great places to eat and drink. Events Square has created a new vibrancy to the harbourside, and a marked uplift in popularity and the standing of this part of town.
Events Square is a remarkable success with its quality food, fashion and sailing wear shops, Tesco Express and several excellent eating places including front row harbourside dining at Pizza Express and Zizi's. The square hosts events throughout the year, such as the Oyster Festival, the celebrations of Falmouth Week, as well as many big name attractions, all of this making it a countrywide attraction all year round.

The property Located on the ground floor of the wonderful Challenger Quay development, with a walkway through to Events Square and the Maritime Museum and easy access to all the facilities within Falmouth Town. Port Pendennis Marina which is renowned as one of the uk's premier sailing destinations is literally on your doorstep.
The apartment is extremely well-presented with a luxuriously appointed kitchen and two good sized bedrooms. The open plan living area is very light thanks to windows and three French doors that look straight down the river.
The outside terrace is simply amazing with uninterrupted views straight down the water and the orientation means long lazy Summer evenings watching the sunset.
During our 30 years selling houses in Falmouth, we have viewed or sold most homes along the seafront and realise this to be a remarkable property and opportunity. Number 1 occupies the ground floor with windows on two sides flooding in light. The accommodation is spacious and designed without compromise to provide comfortable living and flexibility. Quality abounds with immaculate standards of presentation.
Access is secure into this gated community with remotely controlled gates and Number 1 having a private parking space.
We question whether apartment living in Falmouth really does not get any better than this!
