GREAT VALUE! - A well proportioned first floor apartment within this secure gated development, recently redecorated and carpeted throughout, providing 2 double bedroomed accommodation, with spacious open-plan living room, private balcony which overlooks the mature communal gardens and adjoining stream, allocated parking and visitors parking, and communal roof terrace - available with immediate vacant possession and no onward chain.

THE PROPERTY

Built circa 2000, as the name implies, of a traditional-type construction, this well maintained and run development is located on the northern outskirts of Penryn town, yet within walking distance of the local amenities, and within easy access to the neighbouring towns of Falmouth, Truro, Helston and Redruth.

Gated vehicular and pedestrian access provides a secure environment, ample parking for residents and visitors is provided within the surrounding communal gravelled courtyard, and well maintained gardens, stocked and tended. The development consists of five attached blocks with Number 11 benefiting from a position away from the main road, and from the living room a private balcony, an attractive outlook is enjoyed over the well stocked communal gardens which adjoin a stream.

The apartment has recently been redecorated and recarpeted throughout and with the added benefit of no onward chain, and immediate vacant possession, is ready for immediate occupation.

From the central entrance hallway, panelled doors lead to the two bedrooms, bathroom, good sized storage cupboard, airing cupboard and well proportioned L-shaped living room, with panelled door to the galley-style kitchen and French doors opening onto the private balcony.

The apartment also benefits from uPVC double glazing throughout and economic night storage heating, and whether searching for a permanent, investment or holiday home, it is without hesitation that as the vendor's Sole Agents, an early viewing appointment is advised.
