River View benefits from stunning views across the water to Flushing, a decked area to the front and private garden to the rear. The master bedroom has been recently refurbished, has a Juliet balcony and breathtaking views all the way from Falmouth Docks to the Penryn River. These vistas are always changing as the tide ebbs and flows and you could while away many an hour watching the world get on with its day while enjoying a coffee or glass of wine. Downstairs the open plan living / dining area is spacious and there is a beautiful Cornish Range cooker and sliding doors open onto a decked area with rattan furniture.
From River View it is a short walk down the hill to the Greenbank Hotel, The Working Boat Pub and the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club and on into the heart of Falmouth where you can enjoy the wealth of fine restaurants and thriving pubs that this vibrant town has to offer. At the far end of town is Events Square and the National Maritime Museum where the Falmouth Oyster Festival and the shore-side activities for Falmouth Week are based, amongst others, during the year. There are also regular ferries from the Prince of Wales Pier and Custom House Quay that are well worth a day trip with destinations such as the beautiful St Mawes and the Roseland Peninsula or further up the River Fal to Trelissick Gardens, Malpas or Truro.
