About this property

  • Originally constructed in 1971, The paddock is a spacious and versatile detached house, enjoying a generous plot on the edge of the village of Flushing, with extensive elevated views over its gardens to the Penryn river and Fal estuary beyond. In recent years, the present owners have refurbished the property throughout, to include new Velfac maintenance free windows, under-floor heating, beautiful oak floors with high quality fixtures and fittings.

    A raised walkway leads from the generous private driveway to a front door at first floor level, which opens onto an entrance hall with WC & shower room and staircase with glass balustrade leading to the ground floor.

    The kitchen, dining and living area offers a fabulous entertaining space with windows on three sides and sliding doors opening onto two separate balconies including one suitable for alfresco dining. In the living area there is a modern multi-fuel stove and sliding doors opening onto the second balcony.

    The master bedroom, also on the first floor, has an ensuite bathroom and sliding doors opening onto the large balcony, enjoying wonderful river views. There is a second double bedroom on this level, also with fine river views, with shower room across the entrance hall.

    On the ground floor there is a hallway with snug/sitting area which opens onto a large terrace which wraps around the front of the house. There are two further double bedrooms on this floor, which share a modern family bathroom.

    From the ground floor entrance hall, there is access to the back of the house and a utility/second kitchen, which gives the option to make this floor self-contained if required. From the utility room, there is access to the studio & integral garage & workshop, providing a versatile space with potential for a variety of different uses.

    A pair of timber gates open from St Peter's Hill to the private driveway with plenty of off-road parking space, which is a rarity for the village. On one side of the house there is a carport/boat store and stone paved path leading round to the gardens and terraces in front of the house.

    The gardens have been designed and landscaped to take advantage of the property's elevated position, offering far-reaching views and plenty of space for outdoor entertaining. Within the gardens there are a variety of mature borders, lawned areas and trees including a beautiful magnolia.

    Towards the property's southern boundary, planning permission has been granted for a second dwelling, which could be separated from the existing property with separate road access, if required, or alternatively provide the option for secondary holiday let accommodation or multi-generational occupancy.

    For further details of the existing planning consent, granted in November 2019, search Cornwall Council's online planning register with the following ref: PA19/04722.
