DESCRIPTION

Located within the heart of this exclusive harbourside village, on the banks of Falmouth Harbour and perfectly positioned for the superb day-sailing waters of the Fal Estuary and Falmouth Bay, a well presented terraced cottage providing superb open-plan living, with 2/3 bedrooms including an accessible 'loft area', and delightful, sunny, enclosed courtyard garden.

THE PROPERTY

36 Coventry Road is a most appealing home, being sold with vacant possession, although previously utilised as a successful holiday let and now let on an 'assured short-hold tenancy', it provides a delightful permanent, retirement, holiday home or investment purchase.

Retaining many interesting features, the property comprises an open-plan living arrangement on the ground floor, comprising a sitting area with wood-burning stove, dining area and galley-style kitchen with stable door opening onto the enclosed timber decked rear courtyard. A timber panelled door from the dining area opens into a lobby with door to an under-stair storage cupboard and further door to the downstairs shower room/WC. Two bedrooms and a cloakroom/WC are found off the first floor galleried landing, with a staircase from the original third bedroom rising to the 'loft area' with skylights to the rear elevation.

To the rear, there is a pretty enclosed decked courtyard with gate providing access onto a rear path, which in turn leads onto Kersey Road.

THE LOCATION

Flushing is recognised as one of the warmest villages in the UK by virtue of its sheltered south-facing aspect on the banks of Falmouth Harbour and the Penryn River.

Formerly the location of choice of Packet Ship captains and visited by Admiral Nelson, the village has become one of the most sought-after locations anywhere in the West Country by virtue of its temperate climate, picturesque terraced cottages, beautiful unspoilt surrounding countryside and immediate access onto perhaps the finest day sailing waters anywhere in the county on the nearby Fal Estuary, its tree-lined tributaries, out onto Falmouth Bay and beyond to the Helford River and Western Approaches.

Of course, excellent sailing facilities exist centred around Falmouth's harbourside - there are many sailing clubs for those of all abilities, including one in the village itself, moorings on application from the harbour master and marina facilities in both Falmouth and nearby Mylor Harbour.

Village amenities include a primary school, village stores, restaurant, two public houses and regular passenger ferry to Falmouth where there are numerous restaurants and many shops including Marks and Spencers, other nationals and a host of boutiques and chic art galleries etc.

The cathedral city of Truro, approximately ten miles distant, is the county's retailing, commercial, administrative, health and educational centre with the region's leading theatre venue, The Hall for Cornwall, together with direct rail link to London (Paddington) with a journey time of approximately four and a half hours.
