THE LOCATION Penryn's Harbour Village is part of the recent restoration and regeneration of Penryn Harbour which provides nearly 100 character homes, cottages and apartments and includes the refurbishment of important listed buildings. The development, much of which is riverside, takes place within the Penryn conservation area, which is predominantly Georgian in flavour. Penryn town is a few minutes' walk away and Falmouth harbour town, about 1 mile away.
THE PROPERTY The historical Daniel Sail Loft is a conversion of a magnificent Grade II listed granite riverside building into six apartments. Apartment 3 is located on the first floor in a prime 'corner' position enabling great views over and up the river, to the footbridge and also towards Penryn Bridge and shoreline beyond. This characterful property retains reclaimed and original characteristics from the former wharf, incorporating shuttered windows, beams, lintels and posts together with whitewashed granite walls and modern day comforts to create a rather special home. There is a resident Kingfisher in this stretch of the river and swans, egrets, mullet and bass come and go on the ebb and flow of the tide.
The apartment is a decent size with two double bedrooms and generous sitting/dining room where one can fling open French doors and feed swans below the Juliette balcony. Complete with a designated parking space, this would make an exciting permanent, holiday or letting investment opportunity.
