+ Full Description
Flushing is a small, exclusive village, standing on the northern banks of Falmouth Harbour, enjoying a particularly sunny, sheltered and warm southerly aspect and backing onto beautiful unspoilt countryside of the Trefusis Estate and the Penarrow peninsula. The village dates back to the 17th Century and lies within an area of outstanding natural beauty. It has an active local community and supports a primary school, a village store, sailing club, gig-rowing club, two pubs and a café on the quay. It is also 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. Mylor Yacht 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. There are lovely walks around the peninsula and across to the creekside The historic port and university town of Falmouth lies across the water, serviced by a regular, year round, pedestrian ferry service. Truro lies approximately 11 miles to the north with its extensive range of leisure, shopping and rail links to London. A branch railway line operates from Falmouth to Truro, which is on the main Paddington-Penzance line with an overnight sleeper service. There are daily flights to London from Newquay airport, about 30 miles away.
Quarry House occupies a truly unique and magnificent position in its own large quarry garden, with private parking and a garage, just up the hill from Flushing Sailing Club on Trefusis Road, and facing south over the many moored yachts in Falmouth Harbour. The house was originally built circa. 1900 as a quarry workshop and was part of the Trefusis estate until it was transferred into the current ownership in the 1970’s. The house is currently laid out with four bedrooms (three of which take in the views over Falmouth Harbour), there is an open plan sitting/kitchen room, studio/sitting room, 2 bath/showers, utility and laundry. The property has been recently occupied, but does offer huge scope for an exciting refurbishment programme.
