Kittiwake is a delightful, newly refurbished cottage, set in the heart of Flushing,
Just a stone’s throw away from the waterfront at Flushing village, this delightful house has been stylishly decorated and furnished to an excellent standard of comfort.
Kittiwake has everything you might wish for in a family holiday home. With three bedrooms, generously proportioned rooms and an exterior courtyard it offers spacious living just a short walk away from the pubs, café and shop of delightful Flushing village.
Recently refurbished, this modern property sleeping six people has been tastefully and thoughtfully furnished by its owners, who wanted to create a relaxed atmosphere with a coastal theme. It is clear that no expense has been spared in the high quality furniture, cosy soft furnishings and delightful pieces of local art and antiques that have been carefully placed around the property. Whites, creams and soft tones of grey, blue and stone have been used throughout to give a light and airy feel to the décor of this house, which has largely been furnished with natural materials such as wood, slate, and wicker and rope.
Step through the front door of Kittiwake and you are welcomed by a light, generous hallway with quality Cornish slate floor which leads to one of the most impressive rooms in the house. This light open-plan space with large white painted windows has been divided into two distinct zones. A cosy seating area surrounds the cast-iron wood-burner, with a large comfy corner sofa and two matching armchairs providing enough space for the whole family to sit and enjoy a relaxed evening in front of the flat-screen TV, or indeed compete in a tense board-game championship. The owners have equipped the TV with Freeview and also provided a Nintendo Wii and WiFi for your entertainment. To the rear of this impressive room sits a large wooden dining table and six upholstered chairs; perfect for long, leisurely meals together. A high chair is available for those with young children.
Comfort and quality continue in the fabulous kitchen located at the rear of the property. Modern, light-reflecting white units contrast against the grey Cornish slate floor, at the centre of which sits a round table with four chairs. This room has been fully fitted with integrated appliances including a fridge and freezer, a dishwasher, a washing machine and a tumble dryer; everything you might need to cater for your family in comfort and with ease on holiday. This white room is flooded with light thanks to the large French doors which open up one side of the room to an exterior decked area with wooden bench. Further alfresco dining opportunities are provided by the metal table and four chairs which sit in the pretty walled courtyard garden, just a few steps down from the kitchen level. This property also benefits from gated rear access and an outhouse for wet and sandy gear, making journeys home from the beach with tired but happy children incredibly stress-free.
Back inside this lovely house, the sleeping accommodation is all located on the first floor. The pièce de résistance is undoubtedly the master bedroom which has a distinctive beach hut feel, aided by a stunning white painted tongue and groove vaulted ceiling. Comfort is guaranteed by a generous king-size bed, built-in wardrobe and large white chest of drawers and this lovely room also benefits from side views of Flushing’s waterfront. Another luxury touch here is the en-suite bathroom with under-floor heating and heated towel rail. Quality towels and bed linen are provided throughout for guests’ use.
There are two further bedrooms on the same floor, both boasting twin beds. These light, bright rooms have been comfortably furnished to provide a good level of storage space with built-in wardrobes or chests of drawers and are both of a good size. For those holidaying with young children, a travel cot is also provided.
Across the spacious landing is the family bathroom. Decorated using the same colour scheme as the master bedroom’s en-suite, this contemporary bathroom has a modern, white suite comprising W.C, large bath and separate corner shower, white and blue wall tiles and Cornish slate floor with under-floor heating.
Offering everything you might possibly need for a relaxed, comfortable holiday en famille – and a few extra luxury touches besides – we love Kittiwake. And we think you will do too.
