Situated on little-known King Charles Quay, yet just yards from Customs House Quay and Falmouth's main street, a charming harbourside house, providing spacious, well appointed and adaptable accommodation, currently 1 bedroom, but readily converted to 2 or 3 bedrooms if required, subject to consents, enjoying sensational, direct and ever-changing views over the constant activity within Falmouth Harbour, to the picturesque village of Flushing and surrounding countryside.


The availability of 'Tocopilla Cottage' provides a rare opportunity to purchase a highly individual, well proportioned and extremely well appointed house, directly on Falmouth's waterfront, with all main rooms enjoying the stunning views over the harbour to Flushing, Trefusis Point, deep sailing waters of the Carrick Roads, and shoreline of The Roseland peninsula beyond.

Currently configured to provide one bedroom, the proportions of the property readily allow for a total of two/three bedrooms to be created, if required, subject to all necessary consents, and a proposed first floor plan is annexed hereto.

The ground floor accommodation currently comprises a spacious, L-shaped living, dining and kitchen, with gas fired Rayburn. There is a well appointed shower room with marble tiling to the ground floor with, to the first floor, a magnificent lounge with 11'5 (3.49m) high ceiling, marble fireplace with real-flame gas fire, and two picture windows overlooking the water. The first floor bedroom again faces the water, and features its own private en-suite shower room, again with white suite and marble tiling. To the side of the property, there is a useful store.


'Tocopilla Cottage' is situated just inside the entrance to King Charles Quay, a quiet, almost traffic-free location, accessed off Quay Hill, close to the highly regarded Chain Locker Inn on Customs House Quay. Consequently, all harbourside facilities are literally 'on the doorstep' with, at the top of Quay Hill, Falmouth's main street with its excellent selection of shops, commercial facilities, bars, galleries and restaurants, etc. The location is, therefore, ideal for second home owners, holiday makers and permanent residents alike.
