The property

A seaward facing balcony directly above the water is one of the special features at Toby's Quay. This chic and superbly positioned waterfront apartment with its uninterrupted panoramic views across Falmouth Harbour to the Roseland, is the result of a conscientious refurbishment of a former boat house once belonging to Toby West, a locally renowned master seaman.

Set within the prestigious Packet Quay's development, guests will discover a sophisticated and relaxing setting yet find it conveniently placed for Falmouth's golden beaches and vibrant town centre. Idle time can be spent watching the boats, yachts and cruise ships crossing the port from the private balcony or from the living room on plump leather settees in the cooler months. When you are ready to explore the surrounding area, you will discover numerous restaurants, bars, old inns, galleries and shops within a five minute walk. A popular spot for visitors is Events Square, which is home to The National Maritime Museum and Rick Stein's Seafood Bar, and there are numerous points throughout the town boarding pleasure boat trips to St Mawes, Helford River and Truro.

Beach lovers are spoilt for choice with Falmouth's four white sand beaches, one with Blue Flag status, three with seasonal lifeguard patrol and two with excellent water sports facilities. The nearby gardens at Trebah and Glendurgan are a huge attraction for naturalists whilst Falmouth's scenic 18 hole coastal golf course is a must for keen golfers.

Presented to a very high standard, the accommodation is arranged over one level with entrance from the quayside into a spacious open plan living room. Spectacular views can be admired from here, with numerous windows giving varied perspectives and allowing light to flood in. The en-suite master bedroom and twin bedroom also boast harbour views as well as flat screen TV's and comfortable mattresses. There is secure garage parking for one car (parking space dimensions 16 x 7 x 6'4. Unsuited to 4 X 4, high sided or large vehicles).
