This delightful and stylish apartment is a real gem, tucked away in a sheltered courtyard just yards from the water in the centre of Falmouth. Wonderfully comfortable and attractively presented, Stone's Throw is an unexpectedly peaceful bolthole. Steps lead down from the parking-area to a sheltered south-facing courtyard, a lovely spot for breakfast on sunny days and refreshing drinks on balmy evenings. There is a useful entrance porch for coats and walking boots, a spacious open plan living-room with French doors out to the courtyard, two double bedrooms (one with en suite cloakroom) and a contemporary family bathroom. A two minute walk brings you to Discovery Quay, a vibrant waterfront area offering an eclectic mix of shops, cafes and restaurants, and host to many exciting events throughout the year, including Falmouth Week, Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival, Falmouth Spring Festival and Falmouth Oyster Festival.
Stone's Throw is behind secure gates and part of historic Bank House, a large Grade II Listed Georgian townhouse. Set at the rear of the building, down a flight of steps from the private parking place, the apartment is cocooned from the hustle and bustle of town. Facing south, the private courtyard enjoys plenty of sunshine and light streams into the big open plan living-room. Oak flooring, Farrow & Ball paints, John Lewis furniture and lovely bed linens, cushions and throws show the quality of the apartment. The kitchen-area is fully equipped with solid wood units and high quality appliances. The two double bedrooms share a contemporary bathroom, and the main bedroom has an en suite cloakroom. Added extras like a Smart TV with iPlayer and Netflix, a Bose music system, a Nespresso coffee machine and unlimited superfast broadband have all been added for your enjoyment. Just a short walk from the town's small branch line station, Stone's Throw is perfect for those who want to enjoy a car-free holiday. Falmouth is full of maritime history and is a bustling and lively town with a diverse mix of independent shops, bars, restaurants and art galleries. A meandering walk through the town to the Prince of Wales Pier gives access to ferries sailing to Flushing, Truro, St Mawes and the Helford River. The coastal footpath passes the building, heading around Pendennis Head then along the seafront past Gyllyngvase beach to follow the coast to the Helford valley and the Lizard peninsula beyond. Gardeners will love exploring the renowned Cornish gardens at Trebah, Glendurgan and Trelissick nearby, with The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project just a half hour drive away. And if the glories of the mellow south coast begin to pale, jump in the car and head over to the dramatic cliff tops and wilder Atlantic waves of the north coast, with fabulous surfing beaches at Porthtowan, Chapel Porth, St Agnes and Perranporth.
