THE PROPERTY Number 17 enjoys a superb top floor position within the centre piece of Melvill Court, a delightful and
much sought-after neo Georgian building, constructed in 2002. This penthouse apartment was bought new from us
and has since been a much enjoyed holiday home. It is positioned facing south with the loveliest of elevated views
over the seafront and its canopy of trees, out to sea and coast to the Manacles in the distance. Accommodation is
beautifully presented and interesting with its vaulted ceiling, open plan living room, incorporating a fitted kitchen
with porthole window to the view and removable stainless-steel steps up to a mezzanine level. The living room leads
out on to a generous covered balcony with fabulous outlook. There are two double bedrooms, the main with ensuite
shower room, in addition to the main floor and wall tiled bathroom.
Number 17 is absolutely on the 'top floor' and rather more exclusively accessed than others at Melvill Court since it
has its own turning staircase and lobby taking you up and beyond the limit of the lift.
