Cornwall LivingIssue #141
Luxurious living for over 55s in Falmouth
Spend your days by the Cornish coast, surrounded by the beaches, businesses and beauty of Falmouth.
Set in an incredible location, The Fitzroy is a collection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments with stunning panoramic views of Falmouth Bay and the historic Pendennis Castle. Designed by award-winning architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, The Fitzroy’s design is a contemporary interpretation of the traditional grand hotels, such as The Falmouth Hotel and The Royal Duchy Hotel on Cliff Road. The development rises to five storeys and has floor-to-ceiling glass windows, giving the building a glazed exterior and letting in plenty of natural light.
The Fitzroy features a beautifully furnished communal lounge, landscaped gardens, a guest suite to host your loved ones and a Lifehost on hand five days a week to help when needed. Seaside living is at its finest at The Fitzroy, where residents are able to explore and enjoy the generous grounds’ numerous areas for relaxing outdoors and taking in the fresh, Cornish sea air (not to mention the views). The shared lounge is perfect for welcoming guests or catching up with neighbours over a coffee, enjoying the views across Falmouth Bay from the expansive windows.
Now available to reserve off-plan, The Fitzroy comprises 34 stunning apartments, all drenched in natural light and opening out onto spacious balconies where you can gaze out to the Atlantic on a summer’s evening or wave watch from inside. The large kitchens are fitted with ample overhead storage and timber-effect worktops, while the bedrooms all have space for double beds. The modern, part-tiled bathrooms have mirror-fronted cabinets and a spacious walk-in shower. Your home at The Fitzroy will be a blank canvas to make entirely yours, and all homes are pet-friendly for those bringing their four-legged friends with them.
Step outside your apartment to the stunning communal grounds, which were inspired by Falmouth’s 19th-century tradition of collecting tropical plants brought back from expeditions overseas. Drawing on this history of seafaring and discovery, the gardens host a variety of coastal and exotic plants, providing a haven for wildlife and a beautiful area to relax amongst nature. Areas of Cornish walling form a series of nooks and crannies with sheltered seating outside for you to bring a book, enjoy the fresh air with a friend or simply sip a coffee in the crisp winter air.
Situated on Cornwall’s south coast, Falmouth is a bustling town with plenty going on, from local events and festivals to an unending selection of restaurants and pubs offering fine dining and delicious dishes for every taste. There is also a plethora of boutiques, cafés and shops lining Church Street and Market Street for you to peruse including clothing stores, quaint coffee shops and even a cocktail bar or two. The sailing and surfing scene attracts people from all over the UK to the Cornish coast, with beautiful beaches and never-ending waves providing hours of entertainment for those who like to spend time in the water. The town is also renowned for its rich artistic heritage. Inspired by this stretch of coastline, JMW Turner visited the town in 1811 to capture the distinctive Cornish light in his depictions of Falmouth Harbour (the third deepest natural harbour in the world) and Pendennis Castle, the stunning historical landmark that stands defiantly on the Cornish cliffs.
Falmouth’s reputation as an artistic and cultural hub continues today, with galleries including Falmouth Art Gallery and the John Dyer Gallery hosting collections of local and international art. The town is the perfect blend of culture and heritage, combining history with a modern flair which all residents of The Fitzroy can enjoy showing off to visiting loved ones. Visitors can even make a weekend of it and utilise the purpose-built guest suite available at The Fitzroy, to make the most of their visit to your new home.
With just six homes and one sea-facing apartment remaining to reserve off-plan, The Fitzroy promises to be a vibrant community for those enjoying life over 55 to relax in and spend their time exploring the coast and all it has to offer.
