Description

An incredibly rare opportunity to purchase a 3-storey house in this superb, small, select and extremely sought-after development of just 9 properties, occupying one of the finest positions on Falmouth's beautiful seafront, directly overlooking Gyllyngvase Beach to Pendennis Point and Castle, the mouth of the Fal Estuary, St Anthony Headland and out to sea. The perfect beachside home in a safe, secure and extremely convenient setting.

The Property

Queen Mary Court was constructed circa 1986 and, by virtue of its stunning position directly overlooking Gyllyngvase Beach, and extensive grounds, provides one of the most sought-after living opportunities anywhere along the entire south coast of Cornwall.

Number 2 is a three-storey house which our clients have remodelled and extensively upgraded over recent years, to provide light, spacious and highly adaptable three/four bedroom accommodation with features including: A ground floor sitting room (former fourth bedroom), ground floor shower room - ideal for when returning from the beach, downstairs utility room, stunning open-plan first floor living areas including magnificent 'cooks' kitchen by Treyone of Truro, three second floor bedrooms, two sea-facing, with refitted family bath/shower room, again featuring a contemporary white suite.

All main rooms enjoy the stunning views over Queen Mary Court's gardens and neighbouring sub-tropical Queen Mary Gardens, to Gyllyngvase Beach and along the seafront to Pendennis Point, the mouth of the Fal Estuary, surrounding coastline and out to sea. A large balcony is accessed from the living areas, with the communal grounds providing many additional sitting-out areas, as well as a children's play area and almost direct access onto the South West Coast Path. Parking is also more than adequately catered for, with the convenience of an integral garage, personal driveway parking for two additional vehicles, and visitors parking to the front of the development, which also benefits from direct, easy, level access.

The Location

Gyllyngvase Beach and sub-tropical Queen Mary Gardens are, literally, just a 'stones throw away', with Gylly Beach Cafe just a leisurely stroll across the back of the beach. The neighbouring South West Coast Path leads to Swanpool, Maenporth and the mouth of the Helford River in one direction, and across the seafront to Castle Beach and Pendennis Point in the other. Falmouth town centre is an approximate fifteen minute walk, readily accessed by nearby bus services, with excellent retail, commercial and leisure amenities including galleries, restaurants, quayside bars, National Maritime Museum, sailing amenities and multi-screen cinema etc.

A stunning beachside location, ideal for second home and permanent residents alike. Early viewing unhesitatingly recommended.
