The property occupies a privileged position at the head of an exclusive and private road serving a total of seven properties, set above Mylor Yacht Harbour with extensive views out over the marina and towards the Fal Estuary and Loe Beach, Trelissick and the shoreline of the Roseland Peninsula.
Mylor is a highly sought after, long established, residential creekside village with strong links to the historic shipping, fishing and yachting industry in South Cornwall, providing superb timeless river views and access to the sailing waters of the Carrick Roads. The village itself has a strong community centered around the well-equipped marina with its yacht restoration, building and sales services, including 400 berths. A haven for shipping for over 200 years Mylor was at one time the most westerly Naval Dockyard and victualling station in England. The harbour went on to become home to the notorious HMS Ganges and the Falmouth Packet ships. During World War II the harbour was a base for operations conducted by the French Resistance. It is now home to the last remaining fleet of oyster fishermen. The village has a 19th Century Church, popular café, restaurant, chandlery store and Ancasta yacht broker office. There are wonderful riverside walks leading to Mylor Bridge approximately 1 mile inland and Flushing around Trefusis Point, approximately 1½ miles distant.
The property enjoys views over the Carrick Roads with one of the World’s largest natural harbours, towards the Fal Esturary with Trelissick House above. The nearby Restronguet Creek is home to the popular Pandora Inn pub and restaurant situated on the water’s edge with its own pontoon for those wishing to arrive by boat.
The main harbour town of Falmouth has wide variety of professional services and facilities along with retail, recreational, cafés and restaurants etc. The City of Truro, the administration centre for Cornwall, is about 9 miles distant and offers extensive range of shops, health, leisure, education and entertainment facilities, business and convenience services including mainline railway station with direct line to London Paddington. The main A30 trunk road is within easy reach just north of Truro and provides easy access to the east and west of the County. Newquay Airport on the north coast has regular flights to destinations within the UK and Europe.
No. 4 Ganges was originally constructed in the mid 1970’s and has been altered and extended in the last fifteen years to provide spacious, family accommodation taking full advantage of the superb harbour and river views.
The property has been refurbished throughout the years and provides comfortable accommodation with the benefit of PVCu frame double glazing and oil fired central heating throughout. The property sits in an enviable location at the end of a privately owned roadway leading to the private drive rising up to the house and providing ample parking and turning for several vehicles/boat etc. The property backs onto open farmland owned by the Trefusis Estate.
