THE LOCATION Seabank is a purpose-built development of just seven apartments in a phenomenal and uplifting seafront position directly overlooking Gyllyngvase beach and Falmouth Bay. The property has breath taking 180-degree water and coastal views from Pendennis Point across the sea to the unspoilt shoreline of the Lizard peninsula, from the mouth of the Helford River to the infamous Manacles reef. Seabank is moments from the vibrant Gylly Beach Café and beach where the coastal path leads to the Helford River and beyond, providing spectacular walks, through areas of outstanding natural beauty. A short walk from the apartment (a regular bus service is also available) will take you along the seafront to Falmouth town and harbourside with its eclectic mixture of national shops, together with galleries showcasing local arts and crafts, as well as great places to eat and drink. Its nautical heritage including sheltered anchorages, yacht marinas and the National Maritime Museum in Events Square. The 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, making it an attraction all year round.
THE PROPERTY Built of concrete construction in 1992, with a 999-year lease (971 years left) and having a share of the freehold, this two-bedroom apartment occupies one of the most desirable positions in Falmouth. The new owner can sit on the 24-foot-long South facing balcony and enjoy views over the beach and sea with the Manacles in the distance.
The property is perfectly liveable 'as is' but the new owner may wish to update and modernise the kitchen and bathroom and re-decorate to suit their own requirements.
The balcony is accessed from the sitting room and master bedroom and being on the second floor there are unobstructed views of sea and beach.
Apartment 4 has electric storage heating but there is gas to the building and fitting a gas boiler to fuel radiators and supply hot water on demand would make sense whilst updating.
The new owner will automatically become part of the freehold management company and will of course join in the yearly owner's meeting to decide on any works that may or may not be needed on the property.
SEABANK OWNERS HAVE DECIDED NOT TO ALLOW COMMERCIAL HOLIDAY LETTING! The owners of the apartments have collectively agreed that this building (at this time) is for residential use only (this does not mean the new owner can't use it as his/her own holiday accommodation and invite friends and family to stay).
ACCOMMODATION IN DETAIL (ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE) There are two communal doors, one from the parking area on the ground floor in front of the apartments and one on the side of the building (which being as the road slopes up the hill, is on the first floor).
