  • Bedrooms: 3
Within a stones throw of Flushing s beautiful waterfront with connecting passenger Ferry to Falmouth town centre, an exceptionally presented 3 bedroom, 3-storey home, suitable for either holiday investment purposes, bolthole or a permanent home, featuring a sympathetically modernised interior, en-suite facilities and sunny low maintenance courtyard garden.

THE PROPERTY

The Blue House stands within yards of Flushing's beautiful harbourside, in a slightly elevated position at the foot of picturesque St Peters Hill. The accommodation has been subject to a comprehensive scheme of updating, refitting and overhaul in recent years, with attention to detail throughout the refit and appropriate natural materials being used where possible. The spacious interior now feels homely and modern, yet sympathetic to the building with a nautical theme of decoration.

Currently a successful holiday let, the house has provided an excellent annual gross rental return of between £28,000 and £32,000 over the last ten years. Consequently, purchasers seeking a similar type of investment may be interested to know the current agreement with Falmouth Holiday Homes could be transferred upon sale.

A nearby parking space in Vinefield Court, Kersey Road, may be available, at a figure of £750 plus VAT per annum, an agreement which we understand could also be transferred to the purchaser of The Blue House .

THE LOCATION

Flushing is a small, exclusive village, standing on the northern banks of Falmouth Harbour, enjoying a particularly sunny, sheltered and warm southerly aspect, backing onto beautiful unspoilt countryside of the Trefusis Estate and Mylor peninsula. This active village benefits from a highly regarded county primary school, two public houses, restaurant, sailing club and regular passenger ferry service to Falmouth, on the opposite side of the harbour, whose excellent range of commercial and leisure amenities include a wide selection of restaurants, quayside bars, shops, banks, galleries, cinema, National Maritime Museum, sub-tropical gardens and sandy beaches. The village slipway provides direct access onto the sheltered and extensive day-sailing waters of Falmouth Harbour, Carrick Roads, Fal and Percuil Rivers, Restronguet and Mylor Creeks, out onto Falmouth Bay and to the Helford River and unrivalled, picturesque, south Cornish coastline beyond. The Blue House is ideally positioned for those wishing to enjoy these superb sailing waters.
