Overview

About the property

Spacious beach side, retro-inspired apartment with undercover parking and lift

Set within exclusive Castle Drive, this stylish, one double bedroomed apartment with super-king bed, ensuite with shower and dressing room is incredibly well located overlooking the sea. Just moments from the beach, five minutes walk to Falmouth Docks train station (connecting to Falmouth University) and a short stroll to Falmouth town and harbour-side Hamilton Place is in a brilliant position.

Recently redecorated, the apartment has a stylish and eclectic mixture of mid-century, Danish influenced and modern furniture with many original pieces such as Heals, G Plan and Conran with china and glass including Holmegaard and Figgjo Flint. There are authentic, vintage soft furnishings by Jonelle and Heals and original mid-century artwork as well as work by contemporary local artists. With central heating and modern appliances the apartment is well equipped for a very comfortable stay all year round.

Hamilton Place is in an incredible position, situated at the far end of the seafront with spectacular views overlooking Castle Beach and Falmouth Bay. Close to the historic Pendennis Castle and its grounds, it is one of only seven in a purpose built block with private undercover parking space and lift.

LAYOUT

The apartment is situated on the second floor and assessed via a lift or stairs, adjacent to private, undercover parking. The lift has a key entry (and video remote door release within the apartment), it opens beside number 3 on a landing serving just two properties.

The front door of the apartment opens into a hallway with doors off to the bedroom with ensuite, on the left and dressing-room straight ahead.

The bedroom has a Super-King Vi-Spring bed (or 3' twins on request), contemporary Heals furniture and original vintage accessories and soft furnishings. There is also a Pure DAB radio and a telephone. The bedroom has a modern en-suite with shower, loo and handbasin.

The dressing room has matching G Plan furniture, vintage soft furnishings and accessories from Jonelle. It provides plenty of extra space for those planning a longer stay.

The hallway leads on to the bathroom and through to a modern kitchen, open-plan dining area and sitting-room with stunning sea-views from everywhere! The kitchen is newly installed and has a good range of modern appliances and fittings. If you fancy cooking a meal instead of eating out at one of Falmouth's many restaurants, the kitchen has the appliances and equipment you would expect to find at home.

The sitting/dining-room has defined areas with a mixture of contemporary and original mid-century furniture, vintage furnishings and local artwork, as well as other interesting pieces of design. There is a good internet connection and wifi at the apartment as well as a USB adapter for charging devices, Samsung 40" 4K UHD Smart TV, DVD player and a Mission Aero Bluetooth speaker which can be paired with your own smart devices such as iPods, phones and tablets.

But it's the truly breathtaking views that "steal the show" from this open plan space and there is something to see or excite whatever the weather! Fabulous deep blue sea and sunshine or lashing rain and a howling gale, it's the perfect place to settle down and watch the world go by.

About Jo Lay

John and I both grew up in Cornwall, we know and love the county and all that it has to offer. Our children attend school locally and we take an active part in our community so are well placed to discuss areas of interest and things to do nearby. John has had a property business in Falmouth for over 25 years and I work as an artist and teacher.

We also have holiday cottage in Godolphin Cross, Helston which is decorated in a vintage style with mis-matched china and has a very pretty garden with stream and lots of bird life. If you would prefer a cosy retreat that accepts dogs this might be the place for you.

Jo Lay purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Jo Lay chose Falmouth

We bought the apartment many years ago because of its unbeatable position and views. We enjoy using it ourselves and are uplifted and excited whenever we visit.

What makes this apartment unique

Fabulous front row position, away from the busier section of the seafront, set up high enough to afford a wonderful view with considerable privacy. Castle Beach and the sea is a few seconds away and a nearby footpath takes you on a glorious walk to Pendents Point and the English Heritage Site and grounds of Henry VIII's Historic Castle and fortification. A walk along the seafront joins the SW coastal path, passing Gyllyngvase, Swanpool and Maenporth beaches en route to the wonderful Helford River.

The closeness of Falmouth town and harbour means all is accessible on foot. Falmouth Docks train station (5 mins walk) gives easy access to Penryn and mainline Truro, from where day trips to Penzance and St Ives etc, are great fun.

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic week in Falmouth. The apartment was great and lived up to expectations with the wonderful view. We didn't use the car all week; the nearby train station at the docks allowed us to explore further afield easily and cheaply with no traffic/parking problems. Would highly recommend.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a fantastic stay at Falmouth and in particular in this astonishing apartment. The views are breathtaking, but the whole apartment is absolutely worth... The decoration, the furniture, all the equipment, the silence...

If I had to recommend a place to stay by the coast, I would without doubt recommend this incredible apartment, ideal for two people.

In need of a facelift

  • 3 of 5

The property was in a fantastic position and we loved ship/tide/people watching from the large window overlooking the sea.

The property is a little tired and some of the furniture had lost it's bounce and could do with replacing. Main bathroom was dated. Shower head in the en-suite needed cleaning. All in all, we had a fantastic holiday there.

Beautifully located apartment with amazing views over the Falmouth beach area

  • 5 of 5

Well decorated and furnished with all utilities we required. Great thought into the decor while providing extremely comfortable living. Lift from car park area was much appreciated. Not far to walk to main marina area and therefore lots of pubs and restaurants to choose from. An excellent property which we can highly recommend and would definitely return to.
