Full descriptionIn one of the most sought-after locations in this exclusive yachtsman's haven, fronting Falmouth Harbour and enjoying easy access onto the superb day-sailing waters of the Fal Estuary and Falmouth Bay, a mid-terraced cottage, the subject of an extensive programme of refurbishment and extension works, to now provide a stunning 2/3-bedroomed home, full of light and character, of intriguing part reversed-level design, with oblique harbour views, a sunny rear courtyard garden and immediate vacant possession with no onward chain.
The Property - 'Rose Cottage' has just been the subject of a comprehensive programme of improvement, extension and reconfiguration works, including the installation of double glazing and high levels of insulation, to create a stunning 'waterside' home, a stone's throw from Falmouth Harbour, in one of the most highly regarded locations in this extremely sought-after south coast village.
Middle of a short terrace, 'Rose Cottage' now provides versatile and extremely light accommodation of part reversed-level design with rooms including: an adaptable sitting/dining room which benefits from planning permission for sub-division to form a third bedroom, ground floor 'master' bedroom, ground floor shower room/WC with white suite, dining hall with a utility cupboard off, and recently completed kitchen extension with lantern roof and double doors opening onto a pretty, well enclosed and extremely sunny south and west-facing courtyard garden.
To the first floor, there is a further bedroom, en-suite bathroom with a white suite, and a magnificent 25'0" living room with staircase rising from the ground floor, vaulted ceiling, mezzanine gallery', and three windows to the front elevation, all with mirrored reveals, providing views over the constant marine activity in the harbour to Falmouth's historic waterfront.
'Rose Cottage' is, undoubtedly, a perfect village home and will prove of immense appeal to discerning purchasers seeking a permanent home, second home or lucrative holiday letting investment. An early viewing appointment is therefore unhesitatingly recommended.
The Location - Flushing is recognised as one of the warmest villages in the UK by virtue of its sheltered south-facing aspect on the banks of Falmouth Harbour and the Penryn River.
Formerly the location of choice of Packet Ship captains and visited by Admiral Nelson, the village has become one of the most sought-after locations anywhere in the West Country by virtue of its temperate climate, picturesque terraced cottages, beautiful unspoilt surrounding countryside and immediate access onto perhaps the finest day sailing waters anywhere in the county on the nearby Fal Estuary, its tree-lined tributaries, out onto Falmouth Bay and beyond to the Helford River and Western Approaches.
Of course, excellent sailing facilities exist centred around Falmouth's harbourside - there are many sailing clubs for those of all abilities, including one in the village itself (literally less than 100 yards from 'Rose Cottage', moorings on application from the harbour master and marina facilities in both Falmouth and nearby Mylor Harbour.
Village amenities include a primary school, village stores, restaurant, two public houses and regular passenger ferry to Falmouth where there are numerous restaurants and many shops including Marks and Spencers, other nationals and a host of boutiques and chic art galleries etc.
The cathedral city of Truro, approximately ten miles distant, is the county's retailing, commercial, administrative, health and educational centre with the region's leading theatre venue, The Hall for Cornwall, together with direct rail link to London (Paddington) with a journey time of approximately four and a half hours.
