To be sold on instructions of executors to close an estate. A handsome and spacious Georgian 6 bedroom former packet ship captain's house, situated in the heart of the highly sought after waterside village Flushing with direct river access, a waterfront courtyard, rear gardens, parking for several cars and garage.
This handsome Grade II Listed residence has an interesting history and great presence, being the major portion of the building, although it’s not particularly obvious that it has an attached neighbour, which adds to the appeal. The house also offers the opportunity for a purchaser to stamp their own ideas on elements of the property, as it would now benefit from some updating and refurbishment.
Originally built for a packet ship captain, its setting is superb, positioned within an easy level walk of the centre of the village. It also owns the land opposite, over which its views from the lower floors are enjoyed. This area also provides parking for several cars and a garage as well as providing direct river frontage.
The entrance hall provides a lovely welcome and also gives a sense of the history of the house at the same time. The south westerly facing sitting room is bright and airy, as is the adjacent dining room with both benefitting from vistas across the river. At the rear, the kitchen is of a reasonable size with access through the conservatory at the rear.
The broad staircase is a wonderful feature of the house and leads to both the first and second floors. The first floor has three river view bedrooms, a study, a bathroom and a second WC. The upper floor, due to its elevated position offers wonderful panoramas over the river and the opposite bank, running from Penryn upstream, across to the Greenbank Hotel and downstream in to the harbour itself. There are three further bedrooms on this floor, a second bathroom and a utility room. This floor also gives access from the house to the terraced rear garden with ample seating space for several people.
The area opposite the house is of huge benefit to the house with a large courtyard fronting and overlooking the river, parking for three cars and a garage. There is the additional benefit of access to the water providing the potential for all manner of opportunities for boating and exploring the river on an SUP.

Flushing is a beautiful riverside village with its origins linked to Dutch builders, who were heavily involved with Falmouth’s packet ship industry back in the 17th Century.
The location is much sought after, as its location offers so many lifestyle opportunities for sailing and messing about in boats, as well as having a wonderful beach and lovely walks around Trefusis headland to Mylor Harbour and beyond. Falmouth is accessible via a passenger ferry from the pier, making a very pleasant trip across the water.
Falmouth offers a host of unusual shops, restaurants and bars along with beautiful sandy beaches. There are a range of marinas in Falmouth and also just around the headland at Mylor which offers exceptional boating facilities. Truro is also within easy reach for all shopping and business needs.
