THE LOCATION Millennium Apartments (as the name suggests) was completed in the year 2000 and in the 20 years since has proven itself an outstanding development. This is because of it's individual Mediterranean style, beautiful communal garden set next to the river and well kept grounds throughout. Here you are walkable in to town or to Penryn train station and beyond, whilst it is incredibly convenient to jump on to the A39 in a car within minutes towards Helston or Truro. The town is a historic and ancient market town with an active community and excellent everyday facilities including a nursery, primary and secondary schools. The town enjoys good communication with Falmouth via its bus service and train station, which links to Truro city and mainline Paddington. Penryn is enjoying something of a renaissance witnessed in the regeneration and development of Penryn's inner Harbour area providing riverside accommodation and extensive and exciting dining options. Penryn Campus is occupied by both Falmouth and Exeter Universities sharing buildings, facilities and services as part of the combined universities in Cornwall project; this recent transition into a University town is creating a real 'buzz' for the area. Falmouth town (approximately 2 miles) provides comprehensive shopping, schooling, business and leisure facilities and was recently voted 'the best place to live in the South West' in the prestigious Sunday Times guide.
THE PROPERTY Originally the 'show flat' for the entire scheme and it is easy to see why the developers wanted to show this particular apartment off! Set within this block towards the rear corner of Millennium Apartments, shared only with five other flats. The attractive decorated communal hallway and stairwell rises to the first floor where a front door provides access to number 8. The spacious hallway with storage immediately impresses which in turn opens out into the 'L shaped' 22ft long living and dining space with fully fitted kitchen off, there are also two good sized double bedrooms and bathroom. All is well presented and as you would expect from a modern low maintenance purpose built development finished to a good standard. The living space and balcony off is of particular mention with it's South facing orientation and enjoying a private green outlook over the communal gardens with the sound of the running stream below. This is a superb and liveable home, perfect bolt hole or investment to be proud of - available with no onward chain and recommended.
