A spacious Grade II Listed and recently renovated 4 bedroom residence with direct river frontage, parking and a garage.

Rockside has recently undergone a very thorough and thoughtful renovation that has transformed the property into one of the most stylish residences in the heart of the idyllic waterside village of Flushing.

The house has a wonderful flow to it with the broad entrance hall creating a very welcoming first impression. The lovely reception room to one side has great charm and opposite is a beautiful ground floor bedroom suite; making this perfect for more elderly guests to enjoy. The main living area is on the first floor, running the full width of the building so as to provide the most spectacular views across the river to Falmouth and the harbour. Set to one side is a beautiful kitchen that flows past the island to the dining space then onto the relaxing seating area - all of which enjoy the most magical views. The top floor offers the main bedroom accommodation that is just so unique. The first bedroom features an amazing barrelled ceiling with a low window seat providing the most fabulous views. The middle room has a very cosy feel and is currently set out as a twin room with a stunning bathroom opposite. The last bedroom really has been designed with the river views in mind and benefits from a stylish en suite. Just off the landing area there is a very useful study space set away from any interruptions, with access to the side to the beautiful rear terrace. The garden has been thoroughly landscaped and now offers a wonderfully private place to relax and soak up the sun at the rear until the late evening. Across the road is a broad courtyard with access to the water front - perfect for those who sail or simply explore the river on a SUP. The space also benefits from planning permission to rebuild the garage to create a larger building with boat store as well as a water facing garden room.

Location - Flushing is a beautiful riverside village with its origins linked to Dutch builders, who were heavily involved with Falmouth’s packet ship industry back in the 17th Century. The location is much sought after, as its location offers so many lifestyle opportunities for sailing and messing about in boats, as well as having a wonderful beach and lovely walks around Trefusis headland to Mylor Harbour and beyond. Falmouth is accessible via a passenger ferry from the pier, making a very pleasant trip across the water. Falmouth offers a host of unusual shops, restaurants and bars along with beautiful sandy beaches. There are a range of marinas in Falmouth and also just around the headland at Mylor which offers exceptional boating facilities. Truro is also within easy reach for all shopping and business needs.

Rockside History - With the development of the Packet Ship service, Flushing became an important base for the Packet Ships at the turn of the 18th century. Dutch engineers had been instrumental in the design and build of the quay and were even responsible for the village name, a derivative of ‘Vlissingen'.

Rocksides most famous resident was Adoniah Schuyler, a Packet Ship captain in the late 1700s but he had fallen in the love with the house many years earlier. 1765 the young midshipman, Adoniah, looked across at Flushing and admired a slat hung house, with access to the water and stated “This is the house I shall live in one day.”

Adoniah and his captain and went ashore and received a warm welcome by the Trefusis family which surely cemented his love for Flushing. Years later and after various promotions, Adoniah became the Captain of a Post Office ship, the 'Packet Swallow', and he eventually moved to Rockside in 1795 with his family and lived there for the rest of his life. There is a plaque on the wall in St Peter’s church commemorating a purported gift of £1000 to fund its building following Adoniah’s survival in a fierce storm and his resultant conversion to faith.
