"Sitting on the dock of the bay, watching the tide roll away" is the perfect thing to do at The Pierhouse. Located on the waterfront down a private ope (Cornish cobbled side street) this peaceful location will leave you feeling rejuvenated, refreshed and ready for wasting time.
This fabulous duplex apartment really makes the most of the wonderful views, where you can watch the ships roll in and watch them roll away again. French windows lead from the kitchen/dining-room onto the waterside terrace, the perfect place for breakfast or leisurely meals in the evening. The first floor sitting-room has a huge bay window and a Juliet balcony where you almost feel like you are on the water.
The property oozes comfort and luxury, ensuring you are able to relax fully and enjoy all the wonderful living space on offer. The kitchen/diner on the ground floor is a lovely, sociable space and in the warmer months you can open the doors to bring the outside in. The sitting-room is filled with calming blue tones and there is also a small study with another television and desk should you need some extra peace and quiet.
The tranquil bedrooms both have their own en suite shower-room and are located at the back of the property. There is also a sunny courtyard which catches the afternoon and evening sun and is the perfect place to hang out your towels after a day on the beach.
From The Pierhouse and only a skip through the ope, you will find yourself on the eclectic High Street of Falmouth, with a variety of cafes, shops and restaurants all within easy reach. Falmouth is a great location to explore without needing to use your car, with many ferries and fabulous walks within easy reach. Gyllyngvase beach is just a mile away with paddleboards available to hire, and Swanpool beach just a 10-minute walk further along the coast path, offers many water sports, tuition and more importantly both have fantastic cafes too.
With so much to offer at The Pierhouse at any time of the year, you will want to make this dock your home.
