This waterside property with outdoor swimming pool sleeps 10 with direct beach access and private gardens of approximately 2 acres. Parking for multiple vehicles, 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and incredible 180-degree sea views across the bay from Falmouth Maritime Museum to St Anthony’s lighthouse make this a truly unique family holiday destination.
Owned by the same family for many years, and still decorated in a classic seventies style, the views from every room are quite simply mesmerising. Although Belvedere is an older-style property that would benefit from some cosmetic improvements, in particular to the bathrooms and general furnishings, the location is simply stunning.
Belvedere is a huge property, overlooking the harbour and situated in what the locals aptly call “Millionaires Row”. The grounds are a particular feature of Belvedere. Once the imposing gates are secured the extensive gardens provide the perfect environment for children and adults alike to explore. Mature Magnolias and Camellias line the imposing entrance while the rear gardens, laid mainly to lawn, slope gently towards the seashore.
A concrete gated slipway provides direct access to the wonderfully secluded beach. The swimming pool and dining tables on the terrace make this the perfect seaside holiday home.
The vast lounge sits squarely at the centre of the plot and the expansive full-height windows provide the perfect vantage point from which to view the comings and goings in the busy harbour, including the popular Flushing sailing club races, the busy port of Falmouth and onwards out to sea past Black Rock and Falmouth Bay. TV/ DVD & Freeview are provided (although they are unlikely to compete with the views) along with a wood-burning stove. The original cocktail bar pays homage to the memory of a bygone era – pour yourself a Babycham or make a Snowball, and relax!
The separate dining room with views to sea leads into well-equipped kitchen breakfast room with access to the swimming pool and terrace. There is also a laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer.
At one end of the property is a master bedroom with king-size bed, dressing area and en-suite bathroom with bath and walk in shower. There are two further bedrooms on the ground floor, one with double bed and en-suite bathroom, the other with a double bed and family bathroom. All three of these rooms share the incredible vista of Falmouth bay.
Upstairs, a bedroom with amazing sea views and twin beds leads into a further bedroom with twin beds and an en-suite shower room. Both of these bedrooms have TV’s. This area of the house was the original housekeepers accommodation and also has a small, separate kitchenette.
New beds and bedding throughout will ensure that a good nights sleep is had by all.
We do advise guests that this is an older style property, but one which provides clean and comfortable accommodation for large groups in an absolutely stunning location.
Please note that the swimming pool is only heated from Easter until the end of September. Although heated, it is unlikely to get very warm unless the weather is reasonably mild.
We provide bath and hand towels, but we do not provide beach or pool towels.
