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 several 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 PROPERTY A prime example of characterful cottage living within this beautiful village. The original property has been beautifully extended to create a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house which is perhaps more spacious and light than one would expect from a cursory exterior view. Once inside it is hard not to enjoy the property; from cosy lounging areas to relax through to open, light dining spaces to host and entertain. The garden is an enclosed, pretty space large enough for al-fresco dining leading effortlessly from the hub of the house.
Puffin Cottage is currently a much loved holiday home and very profitable holiday let. This is a truly stunning home and an exciting opportunity for any lucky buyer, a perfect waterside primary or secondary home available with no onward chain.
