Occupying an ideal, central position in the 'heart' of this ever-popular waterside village, a charming and extremely well proportioned 3-bedroomed house providing 'light and airy' open-plan living, 3 first floor bedrooms, large loft, rear courtyard, 'garden' and store - all within a stone's throw of Flushing Quay, with regular passenger ferry across the harbour to Falmouth.

THE LOCATION

Flushing is recognised as one of the warmest villages in the country by virtue of its sheltered south-facing position on the banks of Falmouth Harbour. Consequently, the area's excellent day-sailing waters, considered by many to be the best in the country, are 'on the doorstep', as is the passenger ferry service to Falmouth, just a few minutes away.

Village amenities include a general stores, two public houses, primary school, church and sailing club. A beautiful circular walk along Trefusis Road and around Trefusis Point leads to Mylor Harbour, where further sailing facilities are provided for all abilities. The port of Falmouth, recently voted by the readers of The Sunday Times as one of the best places to live anywhere in the UK, is just four miles distant by road, and the cathedral city of Truro, the county's retail, commercial, administrative, health and educational centre, is just eleven miles.

THE PROPERTY

Built we understand during the mid/late 1800's, 16 Trefusis Road occupies a superb position in the centre of this extremely sought-after yachtsman's haven, just a stone's throw from Falmouth Harbour and the exceptional day-sailing waters of the Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay.

Tall ceilings complemented with small pane sash windows provide much natural light to accommodation which briefly comprises: an entrance vestibule, superb 24'11 double aspect living room with fireplace and kitchen area, rear lobby, bathroom/WC, galleried landing, three first floor bedrooms, large loft area with scope for conversion, subject to consents.

To the rear, there is a small courtyard with store, and across a neighbouring driveway access is provided to the 'garden' area, easily landscaped to provide a patio etc, adjacent to which there is a rustic store ideal for bikes, garden and boating equipment, etc.

A village home, ideal for permanent and investment purchasers alike.
