DESCRIPTION

Originally 2 separate dwellings and now an extremely well proportioned 2 double bedroomed terraced cottage, delightfully positioned in a quiet and 'tucked-away' location, close to the town's amenities and central facilities, offering exceptional living space, refurbished with great thought and style, with the additional benefit of front and rear patio/courtyards.

THE PROPERTY

Situated in a completely traffic-free location, down a delightful opeway, within a few minutes' walk of the town's amenities, restaurants and sailing facilities surrounding the harbour, a two-bedroomed cottage (originally two dwellings), with fantastic proportions and featuring many original characteristics coupled with various recent improvements by the current owners, including refitting of the kitchen and bathroom, installation of sash-style double glazed windows and many other general upgrades.

The living/dining room covers the full width of the cottage and, like the rest of the property, benefits from being light and airy with two large sash-style windows to the front. To the rear of the ground floor and on opposite sides, stands the refitted kitchen and stylish bathroom, the former providing access to the courtyard via the rear door. Upstairs, two bedrooms of good proportions feature further replacement sash-style double glazed windows, the master offering fitted cupboards. From both bedrooms, the outlook is elevated and countryside views of Flushing's rural surrounds can be enjoyed, with a small glimpse of the river in front.

THE LOCATION

Waterloo Place is accessed via a pedestrian pathway, just off Waterloo Road, centrally located within a few minutes' walk from the town itself, junior school and harbourside.

The town's excellent range of shops, services and restaurants etc are therefore very close at hand, together with the water sports facilities centred around the harbourside and shorelines, including the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club, water sports centre and various marinas. Also within a few minutes' walk is the recently developed Events Square, adjacent to the Maritime Museum and Rick Steins fish and chip restaurant.

Falmouth's safe bathing beaches and beautiful clifftop walks are also nearby, as is Falmouth's railway station which leads to Truro, approximately twelve miles distant, which connects to the main Penzance to London (Paddington) line.
