Tenure: Freehold

Family home in a front-line position with views over Falmouth Bay and the coastline, situated in a peaceful location with private gardens, woodland and direct access to the coast path.

Location

Located between the Fal and Helford river estuaries, Dreemskerry sits in an enviable position overlooking Falmouth Bay. Maenporth’s beautiful sandy beach is just a short distance away and has a small café and shop which also offers water-sports facilities. Set further back from the beach is The Cove, an award-winning restaurant with a large outside dining terrace enjoying stunning views out to sea.

The Helford River, Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay are considered to be among the very best sailing waters in the country and benefit from world class yachting facilities which include deep water moorings, yacht marinas, Pendennis Shipyard, the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club, and National Maritime Museum.

Falmouth is the nearest major town and has an excellent selection of shops and restaurants. The town has a proud maritime history and is ideal for those wanting to explore the surrounding coastline. For the sports enthusiast there are two golf courses within a five mile drive. In addition to sailing Falmouth Bay offers ample opportunity for diving, stand-up paddle boarding, sea-swimming, windsurfing or water-skiing, while the coast path running around it provides some wonderful scenery.

Description

Dreemskerry is set at the end of a private close in a front-line position with gardens sloping gently down to the cliff path at their base. The views are spectacular and panoramic, taking in the coast as it curves from Rosemullion Head to the south, to Falmouth and St Anthony Head to the north-east. The surrounding coastline is some of the most pristine near Falmouth and includes several outstanding beaches, including nearby Maenporth, as well as Swanpool, Gyllyngvase and Trebah, nestled between unspoilt cliffs, and wood- and farm-land and ending in the thriving university town of Falmouth.

The property is set across two storeys and arranged with the principal rooms all facing Falmouth Bay. The kitchen enjoys dual aspects over the sea and along the coast to St Anthony Head. An adjoining dining room provides an excellent place to entertain, with windows the full width of the seaward side. A living room and two bedrooms (served by a family bathroom) are also arranged across the front of the property, with a study or further bedroom set behind the kitchen. To the rear of the property a large utility room adjoins a double garage.

To the lower floor, the front bedroom enjoys excellent views of the sea from panoramic windows and opens to the gardens through French doors. An adjoining bedroom or dressing room offers the flexibility to create a master suite if required, with a large family bathroom beside and a further bedroom to the rear overlooking the garden.

The property has been in the same ownership for nearly thirty years and offers the incoming buyer the chance to create a world-class residence along one of Cornwall’s most striking and convenient stretches of coastline.

GARDENS

The gardens are primarily laid to lawn. Behind the house the driveway descends to a large parking area adjoining the attached garage. There is a greenhouse to the side of the property and a terrace across the front of the house provides a wonderful spot to enjoy the view. The gardens slope to woodland set on the banks of a stream to the north, and to high herbaceous borders to the east, providing privacy from the South-West Coast Path beyond.
