Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
Set midway along one of Falmouth's finest sea-fronting roads, a 2 bedroom top floor apartment positioned in highly regarded Southcliff with magnificent, unobstructed, 180 views across the entire breadth of Falmouth Bay from Pendennis Point and Castle, to the mouth of the Helford River, shoreline of The Lizard peninsula and The Manacles beyond.


Number 16 Southcliff provides a very rare opportunity to acquire a top floor flat in sort-after Southcliff, a prime flat development, directly on Falmouth's beautiful seafront, enjoying spectacular, unobstructed and unspoilt views across the breadth of Falmouth Bay from nearby Castle Beach in the foreground, to Pendennis Point, Castle, the mouth of the Fal Estuary, and St Antony's headland, to the entrances of Swanpool and Maenporth Beaches, the mouth of the Helford River, the eastern shoreline of The Lizard peninsula and The Manacles beyond - an ever-changing outlook over the constant marine activity on these beautiful sheltered sailing waters.

The apartment occupies a top floor position with accommodation, in need of some modernisation, but offering great scope for the creation of a fantastic and secure coastal home. Benefiting from replacement uPVC double glazed and economic night storage heating, the property provides two double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes, a fully tiled bathroom/WC and well proportioned full width living room with two windows to the front, south-facing, elevation enjoying the stunning sea views, with broad glazed screen and serving hatch from the adjacent kitchen, with comprehensive range of fitted units.

Set back from Cliff Road, the seafront, 'Southcliff' is set within beautifully landscaped surrounding grounds which include garaging and dedicated visitors parking to the rear, with lovely lawned gardens to the front bordered by beautifully stocked shrub and tree-lined boundaries, with numerous benches and access onto the seafront, all for the private use of the residents.


A short walk along Cliff Road leads to both Castle and Gyllyngvase Beaches, beyond which beautiful walks extend, to the east, around spectacular Pendennis Point at the mouth of the Fal Estuary, and, to the west, along the South West Coast Path to neighbouring Swanpool and Maenporth Beaches and the mouth of the Helford River.

High quality hotels along the seafront provide excellent leisure clubs and dining facilities; a bus service, literally at the entrance to 'Southcliff', providing regular and direct access into the centre of Falmouth town, an approximate fifteen minute walk away, where there is a full range of shopping, commercial and leisure amenities including many restaurants and quayside bars etc.

A rail service from 'The Dell' an approximate five minute walk away, leads to the cathedral city of Truro, approximately twelve miles distant, the county's retailing, commercial, health and administrative centre with the Hall for Cornwall, the county's main theatre venue, and direct rail link to London (Paddington) with onward journey time of approximately four and a half hours.

With the continued high demand for all properties in prime sea-fronting positions, and the limited availability of such properties in this price range, we strongly recommend all interested prospective purchasers arrange an early and immediate viewing appointment.
