A sympathetically extended, recently refurbished, extremely charming cottage, high on quality and character, in the heart of this exclusive yachtsman's haven, one of the prettiest and warmest villages in England, on the banks of Falmouth Harbour and perfectly positioned for the superb day-sailing waters of the Fal Estuary and Falmouth Bay, providing 2 (possibly 3) bedroomed accommodation with many traditional features, oil fired central heating and an extremely sunny south and west facing rear garden.
The Property - 15 Coventry Road is a particularly attractive cottage, in the 'heart' of the exclusive south coast village of Flushing, a few moments walk from Flushing's harbourside and the exceptional day-sailing waters of the Fal Estuary (Carrick Roads) and Falmouth Bay, considered by many to be perhaps the best in the country.
Recently refurbished and sympathetically extended, and offered for sale in excellent internal and external condition, under an attractive natural slate roof, the cottage is perfect as both a permanent home or holiday letting investment/bolt hole, ready to move straight into and still benefiting from many authentic traditional features including open stone fireplace with glass-fronted log-burner, tiled slate flooring, beamed ceilings, sash and small paned windows.
The oil fired centrally heated accommodation includes a lovely open-plan living/dining room, inner hallway with staircase rising to the first floor part galleried landing, bathroom/WC with contemporary white suite, kitchen with Shaker-style units and, to the first floor, two double bedrooms, including a large front-facing 'master' bedroom, with two doors to the landing and two windows to the front elevation, easily sub-divisible into two rooms if required, thus providing three still well proportioned bedrooms.
To the rear of the cottage, a courtyard area leads via granite steps to an elevated and extremely sunny, south and west facing sun terrace/patio, well enclosed to all sides, enjoying a high degree of privacy and an ideal and surprisingly private sitting-out and al fresco dining area.
The Location - Coventry Road is just a few moments' walk from Flushing's harbour edge with quays providing direct access onto Falmouth Harbour, the Penryn River, Fal Estuary and Falmouth Bay beyond. Day-to-day amenities within the village include two public houses, village store, primary school, highly regarded restaurant - 'The Waterside', active sailing club and regular passenger ferry to Falmouth on the southern banks of the harbour opposite, where there is a further, full range of shopping, commercial and leisure amenities including Marks & Spencers, National Maritime Museum, galleries and extensive choice of restaurants.
