THE LOCATION 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.
THE PROPERTY Stable Cottage has been beautifully converted from a detached former stable outbuilding, once owned by one of the prominent water fronting period homes nearby.
The property is a delight, having been reconfigured and refurbished in recent years to exacting standards where everything is beautifully conceived and light and bright. There are two double bedrooms, one on the ground floor and one upstairs, each with en suite shower room, in addition to the separate cloakroom/WC. The sitting room is uplifting with its two recessed windows and views to the river and Falmouth's shoreline including the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club. The kitchen and dining room opens out via quality folding doors onto a slate terrace and south facing walled courtyard garden. This is an absolute treat; sheltered private and perfectly orientated to enjoy, whilst sliding gates enable enclosed parking for a car if desired.
All in all, a real treat - perfect as a permanent or holiday home/let.
