A stunning four bedroom penthouse apartment set in this striking Grade II listed building, occupying the whole of the top floor and commanding superb views from the front aspect to the Watersports Centre, Penryn River, Trefusis Head, the harbour and docks, The Carrick Roads and the Roseland Peninsula beyond.

Bank House is a prominent period building, steeped in local maritime history and originally built in 1788 as a family home for Robert Ware Fox and subsequently converted into nine quality apartments back in 2002 but keeping the distinctive front elevations and original staircase to all floors.

This beautifully presented home was refurbished to the highest of standards with imagination and style and quality specifications, making this a bright and welcoming living environment which has distinctly nautical and Mediterranean themes.

The apartment is packed with impressive features which will delight any prospective new owners including gas fired central heating by radiators (recent new boiler), sealed unit double glazed sash windows, engineered oak flooring to the main areas and carpeting in the bedrooms, an amazing fitted kitchen with wrap around Corian work surfaces and built-in quality appliances, shaped ceilings with inset spotlights.

The bright and spacious accommodation offers in sequence, an entrance vestibule, open plan kitchen, dining and living areas, utility room, principal bedroom with en-suite wet room, three further bedrooms, a family bathroom and four balconies, two at the front enjoying elevated water views across the harbour and the others overlooking the rear gardens. This apartment has a large single garage within a gated driveway.

The apartment is currently being run as a quality holiday rental property managed by Sykes with housekeeping managed locally. Our client uses the property when the need arises.

Bank House is seconds walk from the Events Square with a number of delightful bars and restaurants and of course the National Maritime Museum. Turning left outside the front door gives you a level walk into Falmouth's eclectic town centre passing the waterside districts to the right with the centre offering a range of independent and high street names together with a varied selection of pubs, bars, restaurants from around the world and more. A leisurely 10 minute walk will take you to Falmouth's spectacular sea front where you will find Castle Beach with its lovely cafe and a little further on, the Blue Flag Gyllyngvase Beach which is an ideal destination for watersports enthusiasts. The Gylly Beach Cafe is also a popular choice and there is a Co-op convenience store opposite.

As you would expect given its locality to the harbour and river, Falmouth has a strong Watersports and Maritime centre, Pendennis Marina and further afield at Falmouth and Mylor Yacht Harbours. The main slipway in Falmouth is located behind the Watersports Centre. If you enjoy walking, there is a very pleasant stroll around the point to Pendennis Castle and back down along the sea front passing the castle and Gyllyngvase Beach on the left hand side. Many miles of coastal paths give you the option of walking down to The Lizard Peninsula and beyond.

As our clients sole agents, we strongly recommend an immediate viewing to secure this fine apartment.
