Flushing, Falmouth


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
A charming stone-built village house, within a short level walk from the harbourside, retaining many original features and extremely well maintained, providing spacious 3 (possibly 4) bedroom, 2 reception room accommodation leading to a delightful cobbled rear garden and upper terracing with glorious views to Falmouth Harbour. A nearby garage is available by separate negation - a highly rare and sought-after asset.


Having been a particularly loved home for our client for twenty five years, this well positioned double fronted house has attractive stone elevations and a delightful cobbled courtyard garden to the rear, ascending to a raised terrace which enjoys a marvellous southerly aspect across the village to Falmouth Harbour and the constant marine activity within.

Internally, many original features remain such as stripped timber panelled doors, sash windows and traditional staircase giving a wonderful homely feel to the accommodation, which benefits from central heating and comprises two well proportioned reception rooms, a study or fourth bedroom and kitchen. At first floor level there are three bedrooms (including two large doubles) and spacious bathroom, all accessed via a charming part galleried landing.


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


Many prospective purchasers will appreciate the added benefit of a garage (approximately 50m away) which is available by separate negotiation, a real rarity in this highly sought-after harbourside village.
