THE PROPERTY Thought to have been built in the 1920's, Pantiles Hotel was a favourite destination for holidaymakers for decades before the Pearce family converted it to apartments in the late 1980's. The apartments are no longer allowed to be commercially holiday let but one could have Number 2 as their own holiday home. Long letting is allowed and each owner also has a share of the freehold and of course a say in what happens with the building. Apartment 2 is on the ground floor and can be accessed via the main communal entrance or its own French doors that lead into the sitting room. The accommodation is arranged with the sitting room to the front, kitchen in the middle and bedroom at the rear. All is light and feels very spacious due to the very high ceiling height. An en-suite shower room is located off the bedroom and a door from the bedroom leads to a private patio area which in turn leads to the communal rear garden. There is a communal laundry room located at the opposite end of the building. Plenty of storage is a bonus, as is the off-road allocated parking space. There is a 999-year lease in place since 2008.
THE LOCATION Stracey Road is one of the many roads leading to the seafront. Only a very short walk to Gyllyngvase beach and just 50 yards from the St Michaels Hotel where fine dining, gym and swimming pool are on offer. Pantiles is within walking distance of beaches, shops and train station alike. Falmouth has a diverse selection of restaurants and an eclectic mixture of individual shops as well as national chains, together with quality galleries showcasing local talent. Nearby train stations (Falmouth Town and Penmere Halt) provide a convenient link to the mainline at Truro for Exeter and London, Paddington.
Falmouth Docks are a major contributor to the town's economy and along with Falmouth University (with campuses in Falmouth and Penryn) and Falmouth Marine School, specialising in traditional and modern boat building, marine engineering and environmental science, ensure an all year round and vibrant community. There are five primary schools and one secondary school in the town and highly regarded independent preparatory and senior schools in Truro. Falmouth boasts the third largest natural harbour in the world and is renowned for its maritime facilities which offer some of the best boating and sailing opportunities in the country. The town is consistently ranked as one of the top five places to live in the UK.
