A superb and highly versatile modern home combining coastal and country lifestyles, within around six acres of water facing grounds, wonderfully positioned for Falmouth and nearby Flushing.


Pencreek House is near the village of Flushing, above its privately owned beach. The house is in the heart of the Carrick Roads, which is made up of 28 minor creeks and rivers and constitutes the third largest natural harbour in the world.


Pencreek House is a stylish contemporary family home set in around 6 acres, with panoramic views across the scenic Penryn River. The house was originally built in 1959 and has been painstakingly renovated and extended to take full advantage of the space to create a light and airy atmosphere.

The house is approached over a long and well-surfaced private road serving a handful of properties in the former grounds of the Trevissome Estate and sits comfortably within its own substantial plot, surrounded on all sides by gardens, including a small copse, with south facing gardens leading down to a private foreshore.

External walls are rendered at ground floor level, with a pitched slate roof and deep eaves over larch cladding to the first floor. InternallyThe open plan design creates a flowing harmonious feel whilst a wealth of glazing means the outside spaces blend with the interior. Many of the ground floor areas have double glazed bi-folding doors opening to the south-facing terrace and the addition of Velux windows makes use of the superb light in this area. Amtico flooring and oak doors throughout most of the ground floor, together with the bespoke fittings, continues a designed theme throughout the house.
