A purpose-built one bedroom ground floor apartment that enjoys a spectacular sea view to the rear is on the market with the Newquay Property Centre at £117,500.

The unit in the Bay Apartments at Fistral Crescent, Pentire, Newquay, needs to be viewed internally to fully appreciate the size, and the lovely rear aspect which is enjoyed from the 18ft plus living room, say the agents.

This room has a recessed kitchenette off which serves a fitted breakfast bar. The kitchenette is fitted with a modern range of units incorporating base units under roll-edged worktops and a stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap. There is a built-in single electric oven and electric hob, and a fridge.

Outside, there are communal grounds to the side and rear of the property including a bin storage area and residents' parking nearby.

The property is held on a 999-year lease with each owner having an identical share in the freehold and the management company. There is currently a monthly service charge of £75, which includes communal gas central heating to radiators, water charges and building insurance. Therefore, the only other overheads are the individual council tax bill (Band A) and electricity charges.

The present owner has carried on a holiday letting business from the apartment and it will therefore be available with the majority of the contents on view, within the price.

Traditionally these popular apartments have appealed to first time buyers, as investments or to holiday home owners, due no doubt to the superb location and the views across Fistral Beach.

The River Gannel Estuary is located a short distance away on the south side of this narrow peninsula.
