Entrance Porch, Hallway, Open Plan Living Dining Kitchen with Balcony, Bedroom 1 with En Suite Shower Room, Bedroom 2, Family Shower Room.
An individual, stylishly appointed and extremely well presented first floor apartment with a parking space and panoramic harbour, sea and headland views, conveniently located near the village centre.
Warmed by a central heating system to radiators, this light and airy apartment has double glazed windows and doors. Both bedrooms, the living room, balcony and well-equipped kitchen all benefit from the beautiful views which encompass St Mawes harbour and quay, St Anthony National Trust owned headland, Falmouth Bay, Lizard Peninsula and miles of open sea beyond.
Located so close to the village centre, a rare and sought-after benefit is the parking space. Shops, restaurants, pubs and the sailing club are within a 350 yard stroll and Summers Beach is only a 500 yard walk away.
This rare opportunity has been used for holiday letting previously and fixtures, fittings contents and furnishings (with the exception of personal belongings) are available by separate negotiation.
This south-west facing apartment has 968 years remaining on its long lease which has a peppercorn ground rent. The costs of external upkeep and maintenance of the building is shared equally with the ground floor apartment.
In our opinion, Aloft represents excellent value either as a permanent or second home. Viewing is unhesitatingly recommended.
