The location Flushing is a popular and desirable waterside village, a short year-round foot ferry ride across the harbour from Falmouth. The village has an active local community and good everyday facilities such as a primary school, church, two pubs, a general store as well as a quayside restaurant.
Flushing, with its public slipway, is ideally placed for access to Falmouth harbour, the Carrick Roads and all tributaries of the River Fal, providing arguably some of the finest sailing waters available. There are a number of local sailing clubs and a gig rowing club with boathouse. Mylor harbour is about a mile and a half away and provides excellent facilities including a marina with pontoon and swinging moorings, chandlers and a full range of marine services.
The village is a sociable and inclusive place, popular with those residing permanently and also loved by those requiring a home for holidays.
The property So pretty and so characterful, this cottage would make any owner very proud! Either side of the front door (separated via a corridor) are two reception rooms while to the rear is a nicely appointed kitchen plus dining room. At the very rear of the cottage is a room with many uses that's currently used as an artist studio and is flooded with natural light.
On the first floor are three good sized bedrooms plus large bathroom and separate WC. The rear gardens are delightful, interesting, large and up the hill behind and accessed via granite steps.
