This delightful cottage is located in a quiet, tucked away corner position within a picturesque courtyard within the rural hamlet of Trevissome. The hamlet is positioned between the stunning harbourside village of Flushing and the sought after residential Creekside village of Mylor Bridge.

Trevissome House, located at the end of a private leafy lane and provides boat storage, mooring and a slipway out to Penryn river and the Carrick Roads beyond which are made up of twenty eight creeks and rivers, constituting the third largest natural harbour in the world.

Each of the neighbouring villages are located approximately two miles distant and have thriving communities well served by a whole host of local amenities including village primary schools, grocery shops, sailing clubs and public houses.

The colourful harbourside town of Falmouth lies approximately four miles distance and is accessible by foot and ferry from Flushing or is a ten minute drive and offers a much wider range of business, leisure and shopping facilities. The centre boasts a profusion of high quality independent shops nestled between high street stores, galleries, cafes and restaurants.

Henry VIII's Pendennis Castle marks the entrance to what is the world's third deepest natural harbour and is now home to the National Maritime Museum. The colourful harbour plays host to many sailing events and transatlantic races including the Tall Ships race.
A delightful, detached double fronted early Victorian farm cottage set in a quiet tucked away position at Trevissome between Flushing and Mylor.

Set in fantastic gardens including a sheltered, walled courtyard with central pond and water feature maintained as the original would have been laid out with colourful shrubs, roses, planted borders and herb beds. Beyond is a formal lawn with raised patio overlooking the surrounding rolling countryside. To the side is an amazing woodland garden with established sycamores and a small orchard.

There are many original features including open-beamed ceilings, open fireplace, internal cottage doors and even the original sash windows.

There is room to extend the cottage, subject to planning permission and building regulations. The property is in need of a general scheme of upgrading but would make a fantastic family or retirement home or could even appeal as a second home and is considered ideal for the holiday letting market.
