    About this property

    • The property was reputed to have been built circa 1770 for Captain Kempthorne a packet ship captain with a long and distinguished history of naval service. It is a double fronted grade 2 listed Georgian house in an elegant terrace of similar properties and enjoys far reaching views across the water to Falmouth from both the house and garden

      The property has recently undergone significant refurbishment and extension to create a beautiful family home with an open plan kitchen/dining reception space, whilst retaining its original heritage and elegance. At the front of the property the internal accommodation follows the traditional Georgian layout of a central hallway with reception rooms leading off to the right and left, both with wood burning stoves and bay windows, whilst the new extension at the rear has created a lovely modern open plan kitchen dining room with doors leading out to the newly landscaped sunny courtyard garden. Off the kitchen is the utility room with access to loft storage over a further store room accessed from the courtyard garden. Also, on the ground floor is a downstairs cloakroom and a large inner hallway/reception area with staircase to first floor. From the inner hallway is a door to a large store room with access to the courtyard garden and an integrated side alleyway that leads back to the front of the property.

      On the first floor are two bedrooms, family shower room and the main reception room (or magnificent sixth bedroom) and on the second floor a further three bedrooms and family bathroom with walk-in shower and separate bath. Off the second-floor landing is access to the spacious loft providing ample storage if required.

      Exterior/Gardens/Workshop - The house is set back from the road by an enclosed front garden. At the rear is a large courtyard garden with rain fed pond and steps up to the upper garden. The upper garden has recently undergone considerable hard landscaping with Cornish stone walling, various paths and flower beds leading up to the top terrace where you can enjoy the expansive views across the Penryn River to Falmouth and Falmouth Harbour. Adjacent to the top terrace is a very useful garden shed/summer house with power, light and water.

    Local information

    • The delightful waterside village of Flushing has been a highly desirable place to live since the 18th century when it was the home of admirals and latterly packet ship commanders, when Falmouth was the hub of the international mail service. The village has an active community and retains its charm with many 17th and 18th century houses lining narrow winding streets, leading down to the water. It also enjoys a sunny south-westerly aspect and is reputed to have one of the mildest climates in Britain. Local facilities in the village include a general store, two public houses, a quayside restaurant and a recently completed new sailing club. Flushing also has its own highly regarded primary school, a weekly farmers market, church and chapel and there are regular passenger ferry services to Falmouth and thence to St. Mawes across the Carrick Roads. Sailing enthusiasts are well catered for with an active sailing club in the village and world class facilities at Mylor Yacht Harbour, Penryn and Falmouth where you will find pontoon berths, moorings, chandleries, yacht clubs, cafes and restaurants. The busy port of Falmouth is home to one of the world's largest natural harbours.
