This lovely house was one of the first properties we discovered in the beautiful village of Flushing. One of four character cottages gathered together just a short stroll from the waterfront, The Blue House once used to be part of a chapel and is now an impressively furnished three-bedroom home with a contemporary, seaside feel.
If you are looking for light, bright, spacious holiday living with a luxury edge then this is for you. The owners have put great deal of thought into the fixtures and furnishings used throughout the property and it is clear that there has been no compromise on quality. Tastefully decorated throughout, The Blue House boasts natural polished wood or Cornish slate flooring combined with fresh white painted walls and hints of blue picked up in the cosy soft furnishings and tasteful pieces of art carefully positioned around the property. Clever details such as the fishermen’s lamps, wooden sailing boats and pebbled bathroom tiles all add character and enhance the seaside theme.
Perfectly suited to families, this generously proportioned house has a large, open-plan living/dining room which is accessed through a bright, welcoming hallway laid with a grey Cornish slate floor. The perfect space for lazy evenings or fun family games, this lovely room has some beautiful character features such as the detailing on the stone wall and the cosy wood-burning stove with stone mantel. An extending oak dining table seats six on comfortable leather chairs and a high chair is provided for young children. Should you wish to spend an evening or two indoors then you will be spoilt for choice of entertainment: The owners have thoughtfully equipped the living/dining room with a flat-screen television, a DVD player and a comprehensive DVD and book library. Complimentary high-speed broadband Wifi is also available.
The kitchen is located to the back of The Blue House and, again, has been very well equipped to comfortably cater for families. Following the seaside theme, this sunny room has white walls and feature vaulted ceiling, contrasting beautifully with the soft blue of the pretty painted cabinets and the grey Cornish slate floor. A table and chairs offers the perfect place to sit and chat while you take it in turns to cook. Built-in appliances such as a dishwasher and washer-dryer take the strain out of catering, allowing you as much time as possible to relax and make the most of your surroundings.
If you prefer to dine al fresco, then you will make full use of the courtyard at the back of the property. Tastefully decorated to give the space a Mediterranean feel with clever planting against white-washed walls and a well-proportioned table and chairs, this provides an ideal spot for a quiet drink after the kids have gone to bed.
Two of this property’s bedrooms are located on the first floor. The main bedroom to the front of the house boasts a king-size bed and is subtly decorated in whites, blues and neutral tones. To the back of the property is the first of the two twin bedrooms, well equipped with individual bedside cabinets and a wardrobe providing useful storage space. The nautical theme of the rest of the house is echoed here and, as with the other bedrooms, the floor is laid to polished wood. A family bathroom is also found on this floor. A clean, contemporary look has been achieved with a white WC and deep bath with shower attachment, white tiles with pebble detail and contrasting chrome fittings and Cornish slate floor. Towels and soaps are provided for your use.
Two further guests can be comfortably accommodated in the impressive loft bedroom. Located on the top floor of this village house, this light room with twin beds boasts interesting views across the rooftops towards Falmouth and a useful en-suite shower room with WC. Quality bed linen is provided throughout the property.
All parking in Flushing is on-street and free of charge, and guests will usually be able to find a space outside the house or close by without too much difficulty. In addition The Blue House has a reserved parking space approximately 350 yards from the property should it be required.
The Blue House has been carefully designed to create a welcoming yet contemporary space in which you can relax and enjoy precious seaside memories in 5-star surroundings.
