    About this property

    • Devington Court was conceived in the 1980's, developed as an exclusive, cutting edge, elegant glass fronted apartment development, set within manicured, coastal gardens, punctuated by stone carvings and sculptures that hint at the ground's history as part of the Arwenack Estate.

      The apartment has been sympathetically updated by the current owner, retaining the original features while creating a light and fresh contemporary coastal home.

      The apartment is entered at the rear at upper ground floor level through a decorative glass front door and past the original concierge desk in the communal reception hall.

      With its own front door and entrance hall, the apartment is laid out in a rectangular format with the open plan living and dining room positioned on the southern side of the building to enjoy the view of the sun and the sea. From the entrance hall, a glass wall opens into the main living room which has a grand feel with the original Art Deco style details still in situ. The space is further enhanced by a wall of framed mirrors and a decorative fireplace, reflecting light throughout the room. There are inside and outside seating areas along the front of the property with the external terrace sheltered by the floor above and a part glazed wall balustrade. This allows enjoyment of that incredible view, whatever the weather or time of day.

      The novel kitchen area is carved out of this living space, concealed by hinged, feature panel walls which can be opened up to the dining area when serving food and concealed when no longer required. The kitchen is fitted out with a high-quality Poggenpohl fitted gloss cream kitchen which includes plenty of storage units, ample grey work tops and marble effect splash backs. There are a range of integrated appliances including a fan oven; an induction hob, full height fridge/freezer unit, an integrated dishwasher, a washer/drier and a one and a half bowl white ceramic sink.

      From the other side of the entrance hall there is a striking monochrome family bathroom with a large profiled bath, shower cubicle, WC and vanity unit sink. The walls continue the framed mirror effect, retaining the original authentic finishes to create a spacious and light feel in this space. New feature lighting has been installed to create a bright and airy bathroom.

      To the right of the entrance hall and this bathroom is the main bedroom with its own en suite shower room and built in wardrobes. A hardwood French door opens onto a decked balcony.

      The second double bedroom lies adjacent and has plenty of storage space with a window overlooking the rear garden. A large linen and boiler cupboard also opens onto the entrance hall.

      The apartment has been renovated to an excellent decorative standard throughout; the bright and airy rooms reflect the light and sunny location, creating a desirable coastal retreat.

      Exterior, gardens and garage.

      Devington Court is accessed via a bitumen topped entrance drive, to a rear parking court where there are shared parking spaces for visitors. The apartment has its own single garage which provides further parking and external storage opportunities.

      The apartments sit in the centre of the plot with parking concealed to the rear and a mix of communal and private gardens to the front, punctuated with historic stone remnants of the former historic estate. The gardens are laid to lawn and shrub borders all maintained to a high standard by the property management company.

    Local information

    • Devington Court is an iconic, waterfront apartment located within the former grounds of the Arwenack Estate, the historic residence of Falmouth's visionaries, the Killigrew family. The apartment sits centrally in the glass fronted building, at its upper ground level, with level access to the rear of the property while having superb, elevated views overlooking the Falmouth Bay, Pendennis Castle and Gyllyngvase Beach from its southerly elevation.
    • The location has always been one of the most desirable addresses in Cornwall with its idyllic, sheltered beaches and coves, perfect for swimming and water sports while only being a short walk away from the bustle of Falmouth's internationally famous harbour town, its coastal influenced hotels, restaurants and spas as well as Gylly beach's popular café close to the property.
    • The apartment's largely glazed southern façade allows unrestricted views over the picturesque coastline which stretches from Pendennis Castle to its east to Stack Point to its west.
    • This view depicts a picture postcard scene of Cornwall's riviera coast that has inspired artists, explorers and writers for centuries, including the novelist Daphne du Maurier. The bustling town is enclosed by verdant, pastoral landscapes, protected by their AONB status, renowned for their wildlife and cultural value, making the area a popular destination for those looking for a diverse and rich community in which to live.
    • The beaches and gardens along the Helford River are only a 15 minute drive away to the south west and the property is within 500 meters of St Michael's hotel which is now a luxurious spa and wellness resort offering a range of club membership facilities and fine dining experiences including an indoor thermal pool and health suite.
    • The historic port town of Falmouth is about a mile away with a fantastic selection of shops, restaurants, seasonal events and schooling as well as a mainline railway station offering direct services to Truro, with onward high-speed services to London Paddington and Glasgow.
