THE PROPERTY Barn House was converted about 40 years ago into the impressive home it is today.
The great location is one thing, but it is the fabulous property, its orientation and garden that makes this an absolute gem. Accommodation is so well proportioned with three large double bedrooms, the main about 16' (4.88m) square with high beamed ceiling, an en suite bath/shower room as well as lovely views over countryside to harbour and coast.
Barn House is tucked into the corner of this delightful courtyard of just 5 homes. Its living accommodation comprises a fine sitting room with beamed ceiling and windows to three aspects. From here, French doors lead South out to the terrace and garden. The farmhouse kitchen has 10' (3.05m) ceiling height and space for a large table and chairs. The hallway, turning staircase and landing areas are impressive too. To the front is parking space for 2 cars in tandem whilst a few paces away is a generous sized, slate pitch roofed garage.
THE LOCATION Trevissome is an unspoilt riverside hamlet, across the water from Falmouth and about one and a half miles from Flushing and Mylor Bridge villages.
The lane from Barn House leads down to water fronting Trevisomme House - a fine Georgian country house, once owned by Captain Dowman, owner of the Cutty Sark. The privately owned Trevissome House provides marine services to customers, a slipway and mooring facilities - a wonderful facility on one's doorstep and just a few minutes' walk away. The beautiful estuary path at Trevissome passes sailors' creek, a half mile walk to the pretty village of Flushing.
Flushing owes its name to 17th century Dutch builders who came to construct piers and sea walls and settled there. The village subsequently became a place of style and refinement where the captains of the Packet Ships and their families lived.
Today the village still retains that touch of class with its tastefully renovated 17th and 18th century houses and narrow winding waterside streets. It also enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect and is reputed to have one of the mildest climates in Britain.
Flushing is a popular and highly desirable waterside village, a short year round foot ferry ride across the harbour from Falmouth. The village has an active local community and good everyday facilities such as a primary school, church, two pubs, a general store as well as a quayside restaurant.
Flushing, with its public slipway, is ideally placed for access to Falmouth harbour, the Carrick Roads and all tributaries of the River Fal, providing arguably some of the finest sailing waters available. There are a number of local sailing clubs and a gig rowing club with boathouse. Mylor harbour is about a mile and a half away and provides excellent facilities including a marina with pontoon and swinging moorings, chandlers and a full range of marine services.
The village is a sociable and inclusive place, popular with those residing permanently and also loved by those requiring a home for holidays. Flushing Arts group has a varied calendar of events and workshops whilst the annual village pantomime provides opportunities for amateur dramatics and fun!
The cathedral City of Truro is approximately 11 miles away and provides an excellent range of shopping and schooling facilities together with a mainline rail link to London Paddington.
