property description



This is an extremely pleasant one bed apartment positioned on the Ground Floor overlooking the attractive landscaped gardens of Trelawny House and located just a short walk from the lift service providing access to all other floors and the excellent facilities of the development. An excellent living room has a French door providing access to a covered and private balcony. There is a quality kitchen complete with a host of integrated appliances, a spacious double bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and a practical age-friendly shower room with a walk-in shower.

Constructed in late 2016 by award-winning retirement home specialists McCarthy & Stone, Trelawny House is a contemporary development with a striking façade and represents one of our most popular coastal developments. Falmouth is a vibrant Town and Trelawny House is well-placed in a great location close to the Maritime Museum, the docks (with its great maritime history) and Port Pendennis Marina. A local newsagents, shop and post office is just around the corner from the development. A bus stop very close by provides a regular service into Falmouth Town Centre which is under a half mile away and Falmouth Docks Rail Station is within a third of a mile level walk providing a service to Truro and its intercity connection. The Town Centre with its full range of amenities along with beaches and coastal path are also just under half a mile distance.

This is a ‘Retirement Living’ development providing an independent living opportunity for those over 60 years of age with the peace-of-mind provided by the support of our excellent House Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development. All apartments are equipped with a 24-hour emergency call facility and sophisticated intercom system providing both a visual and verbal link to the main development entrance. There is also a guest suite widely used by visiting family and friends for which a small charge of £25 per night applies.

It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at Trelawny House; there are always plenty of regular activities to choose from including; a fitness class, coffee mornings and afternoon teas, games and quiz nights, film nights ‘ladies at lunch’ and occasional themed events. Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners can ‘dip in and out’ of activities as they wish.

Trelawny House enjoys excellent facilities including a fantastic communal lounge with access to beautiful landscaped gardens and possibly best of all a stunning rooftop terrace with views of the town, coast, harbour and marina, this is a popular place for residents to meet in the warmer weather to while-away the hours and perhaps socialise over a glass of wine or two! In addition, there is a laundry, scooter store and onsite parking available by annual permit for which there is a charge of around £250.
