THE PROPERTY

Spacious detached waterside house with river and harbour views and river frontage. Harbour Lights occupies a unique position being the sole residential property fronting the creek on this small peninsula, and surrounded by open farmland, yet just two miles from the thriving harbour town of Falmouth. The house is exceptionally private, approached by a private drive from the end of a cul de sac. Believed to have been originally built as a bungalow in the 1960s, the current property is laid out as a spacious three bedroomed upper ground floor, with additional/guest accommodation on the lower ground floor. The lower ground floor is very flexible and could be used as an annexe or incorporated into the main accommodation for the larger family. The bespoke kitchen is well equipped with polished granite worktops and an integrated fridge and dishwasher. A large living room opens out onto a huge balcony on the upper ground floor, while on the lower ground floor a garden room and sitting room opens out onto a large terrace. On this level, there is also an indoor exercise pool, currently covered, with the room used as a home cinema/study. The Location Harbour Lights is situated between the historic university town of Penryn and the charming riverside village of Flushing beside the upper reaches of the Fal Estuary. This area of 28 minor creeks and rivers constitutes the third largest natural harbour in the world. The only dwelling fronting the creek on this peninsula, the aptly named Harbour Lights is set in a wonderful position on a hillside with gardens and grounds descending down to a small creek, and a panorama which stretches down the Penryn River, to Falmouth Harbour and St. Anthony's Lighthouse on the tip of the Roseland peninsula, framed by the town of Falmouth and village of Flushing on opposite banks of the river.
