Bedrooms: 4
Situated along a quiet, private road, just off highly desirable St Peters Road, on the elevated outskirts of the picturesque harbour-fronting village of Flushing, an imposing, vast and detached property providing modern 4 double bedroom accommodation and occupying a circa 0.31 acre freehold plot. This impressive reverse-level home boasts fabulous views to Falmouth and along Penryn River, set within well stocked, yet easily maintained, surrounding gardens. The property has undergone extensive investment and now offers modern living of the highest quality, with improvements including, but not limited to: a new roof with slate tiles, a large 5x5 metre double height extension and 6x2 metre single story extension, new double glazed windows and sliding doors (the majority with integrated venetian blinds), new heating system and radiators, along with high quality fittings and fixtures throughout. Benefitting from plentiful driveway parking and garaging a genuine rarity in Flushing.


Located along a private road on the immediate outskirts of the centre of Flushing village, one of the most sought-after villages along the entire south coast of Cornwall, by virtue of its sheltered, south-facing aspect across Falmouth's picturesque and active harbour.

Downside occupies a particularly favourable position, benefiting from being just a short walk from the centre of the village, yet tucked away along a private road, just off St Peters Road.

Village amenities include two public houses (one being recently renovated gastropub, Harbour House ), a highly regarded primary school, sailing club and regular passenger ferry to the thriving town of Falmouth, which provides a full range of shopping and commercial facilities.

Picturesque harbourside and rural walks lead to nearby Mylor Yacht Harbour and beyond to the village of Mylor Bridge and the thatched public house, 'The Pandora Inn', at Restronguet Passage. The port of Falmouth is approximately five miles distant by road, and the cathedral city of Truro, the county's retailing, commercial, administrative, health and educational centre, is approximately ten miles distant.
