Warmed by a central heating system to radiators, this light and airy apartment has double glazed windows and doors. Both bedrooms, 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 attribute is the allocated 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 an established holiday letting income and fixtures, fittings contents and furnishings (with the exception of personal belongings) are available by separate negotiation. This south-west facing apartment has 972 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 only one other neighbour in the ground floor apartment.
In our opinion, Aloft represents excellent value either as a permanent or second home. Viewing is unhesitatingly recommended.
