THE PROPERTY Greyfriars is an exclusive development of just nine purpose-built apartments constructed in the late 1990s and enjoying a prime spot along the seafront. Number 5 is located to the rear of the building, spanning its entire width and with a balcony and sliding patio doors each side, looking with limited sea views towards the bay, coast and seafront, just a few paces away.
The apartment is light, bright, well proportioned and very well presented, with a fine dual aspect living and dining room where its large sliding patio doors open on to a Juliette balcony facing South and West to enjoy excellent afternoon and evening summer sunshine. There are two bedroom, the main with fitted wardrobes and access onto a generous balcony, again with 'sideways' view to the sea. The kitchen is fitted with integrated AEG appliances and there is a modern showeroom/WC. A recently installed gas boiler fuels radiator central heating and hot water supply.
Brilliant to have one's own lockable storeroom and a garage with remotely controlled entrance, as well as several 'visitor' spaces within the development. The landscaped communal garden faces the sea with path and gateway to the seafront. Lift and staircase provides 'step free' access and entrance to Number 5 which might be of interest to those elderly, infirm or those thinking to the future.
This is a brilliant opportunity to acquire a lovely apartment with so much to offer, including the seafront on one's doorstep, at a remarkably competitive price - wholeheartedly recommended!
THE LOCATION Greyfriars lies along Falmouth seafront in a glorious situation, a few paces from the sea, with so much of what Falmouth has to offer on its doorstep.
There are quality hotels and restaurants nearby and Gyllyngvase beach and café is a few moments away. A bus stop outside runs regularly to and from town, where the harbourside and an eclectic mixture of independent shops and nationals, together with galleries and fine restaurants, Events square and Maritime Museum, all provide great amenities and a year round vibrancy. The south facing seafront joins the coastal path, passing Swanpool beach and Maenporth onto the Helford River with arguably some of the loveliest coastline and views to be found in Cornwall.
