Agents comments We love his stunning duplex penthouse apartment. It ticks all the boxes; large double bedrooms, contemporary open plan living, stunning harbour and river views and allocated parking. An example of quite possibly one of the most desirable in-town apartments.
Maritime House is situated on the edge of Discovery Quay, home of Falmouth's Events Square along with a selection of well regarded independent restaurants and bars and the very convenient Tesco Express. Events Square hosts many of Falmouth's annual events including Falmouth Week, The Oyster and Sea Shanty Festivals along with various regattas and The Falmouth Classics.
The town centre is within a couple minutes walk of the property and offers a wide range of commercial facilities, independent coffee shops and bars. The Docks and The Dell train station are within a stone's throw of Discovery Quay, this branch line links Falmouth to the cathedral city of Truro.
