A coastal detached five-bedroom family house with ample parking for a number of cars situated in a superb elevated position capturing estuary views over flushing villageLocationThe delightful waterside village of Flushing has been a highly desirable place to live since the 18th century when it was the home of admirals and latterly packet ship commanders, when Falmouth was the hub of the international mail service.
The village has an active community and retains its charm with many 17th and 18th century houses lining narrow winding streets, leading down to the water.
It also enjoys a sunny south-westerly aspect and is reputed to have one of the mildest climates in Britain.
Local facilities in the village include a general store, two public houses, and a quayside restaurant.
Flushing also has its own highly regarded primary school, church and chapel and there are regular passenger ferry services to Falmouth and thence to St.
Mawes across the Carrick Roads.
Sailing enthusiasts are well catered for with an active sailing club in the village and the world class facilities at Mylor Yacht Harbour where you will find pontoon berths, moorings, chandlery, yacht club, cafe and restaurants.
The busy port of Falmouth is home to one of the world’s largest natural harbours, a spectacular stage for the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, Royal Cornwall Yacht Club and many high-profile yachting events.
It is also a vibrant university town with an eclectic mix of galleries, coffee shops, artisan bakeries, bars and restaurants.
The cathedral City of Truro provides an excellent range of shopping and schooling facilities together with a mainline rail link to London Paddington.
