The delightful and picturesque village of Flushing across the water from Falmouth’s Greenbank 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.
Local facilities include a general store, two public houses and a quayside fish restaurant. Flushing also has its own highly regarded primary school, church and chapel. There is a regular passenger ferry service, providing direct and easy access to the many amenities of Falmouth, and sailing enthusiasts are well catered for with an active sailing club on New Quay.
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.
Bos Dinas is a spectacular ‘landmark’ residence built into the hillside above the charming waterside village of Flushing. The approach to the house builds expectation and the house does not disappoint. The entrance hall features a broad ‘floating’ American white oak staircase that sweeps up to the first floor and has a clever recessed cloakroom. The bedrooms are on the lower-ground floor with a spacious master bedroom suite having a beautiful ensuite wet room featuring a large glazed shower and spacious roll top bath. There are three further bedrooms together with a bathroom and shower room with the bedrooms opening out onto the terrace. The utility/boiler room is well positioned on this level and there is also access into the integral garage/boatstore.
The upper ground floor is the heart of the house. Four large glazed doors slide back to expose the extensive sun terrace which provides commanding views over the village and river to Falmouth. Looking back in to the room there is a modern, functional kitchen with oak and marble tops. The mezzanine floor above creates huge impact with views back through to the gardens beyond. On either side of the kitchen/dining area are two inter-connecting spaces. The music room features a curved wall and delightful views and could be used for a host of purposes. The other side of the living area features the cosier sitting area complete with wood-burning stove set in a deep fireplace. A cloakroom and store are concealed behind the kitchen with a secondary staircase accessed by a ‘secret’ door in the sitting area.
The first floor is accessed via a further staircase and rises to the mezzanine garden room. This area provides direct access onto the terrace to the rear. Off this there is a large guest suite and on the opposite side a ‘twin’ study and a studio/playroom - or perhaps second sitting room.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The property is approached over a sweeping driveway that teases as you progress along waiting for a view of the house. Granite cobbled bays provide ample parking with access right up to the house. Beautifully designed pathways which benefit from lighting lead into the gardens and sweep to the rear where there is a spectacular terrace, ideal for entertaining. The main gardens are terraced above and provide superb vantage points to enjoy views over the house to the river.
From Truro take the main road towards Falmouth turning left towards Mylor shortly after the Norway Inn. Follow the road to Mylor Bridge then the signposts to Flushing. Upon entering the village, follow the road down into the village. Turn left into Kersey Road and proceed up the hill. The entrance to Bos Dinas is on the right hand side a short distance after the turn to Coventry Road.
