Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
To be sold for the first time in the open market for over 60 years, a well positioned double fronted house, formerly part of the Trefusis Estate, comprehensively and most tastefully renovated 7 years ago to now provide faultlessly presented, rewired, replumbed and centrally heated accommodation, close to the centre of the village and harbourside, with the added benefit of an attractive lower rear garden and large, elevated but overgrown upper rear garden, ripe for cultivation and further landscaping.

THE PROPERTY

Formerly part of the Trefusis Estate and purchased by a member of our client's family in 1957, 'Sunrise' is situated less than 200 yards from the harbour's edge, in an attractive position opposite the entrance to Coventry Road, with all front-facing rooms of this elegant double fronted house enjoying a sunny easterly aspect, hence the property's name.

The property was most tastefully renovated by our clients c. 2012, when works included complete replastering, replacement of internal joinery, rewiring, replumbing, the installation of sash-style double glazing, a comprehensive and economic electric central heating system, reroofing and refitting of the kitchen and bathroom etc.

Consequently, the property is in exceptional order throughout and will, undoubtedly, prove of great appeal to a wide variety of prospective purchasers, whether for permanent, holiday or early retirement purposes etc.

THE LOCATION

Flushing is one of the most admired and sought-after villages on the south coast of Cornwall, by virtue of its extremely sheltered position, warm climate, direct access onto the superb day-sailing waters of the Fal Estuary, and proximity to the nearby towns of Falmouth and Truro, the former of which is just a short passenger ferry ride away.

Amenities within the village include 2 public houses, a restaurant, general stores, sailing club, church and highly regarded primary school. The nearby village of Mylor, less than 2 miles distant, provides an excellent range of day-to-day amenities, with the university town of Penryn (2 miles) being the site of the Combined University Campus at Tremough, together with a regular rail link to Truro.

In all, a lovely family, retirement or holiday home, in one of south Cornwall's most sought-after and convenient locations.
