This property is steeped in history, built in 1804 by Napoleon’s family as the first Catholic church for worship in Falmouth.

Built in 1804 by Napoleon’s family as the first Catholic church for worship in Falmouth, this gorgeous, semi-detached, three-storey, waterfront, period holiday property is steeped in history. Crown House is the original name and it has retained the original gateway with the crown motif. With three sets of steps leading up to this charming house and one of a pair, it is the home of an interior designer and has a great ‘shabby-chic’ style, with 180-degree waterfront views across the River Penryn towards Flushing, out to the Fal Estuary, harbour and sea beyond. This holiday property will appeal to extended families and friends looking for a spacious and comfortable base to explore the delights of Falmouth and surrounding areas, popular at any time of the year. Falmouth boasts some of the best beaches in Cornwall including Gyllingvase with its trendy café, Swanpool with its adjoining nature lake and Castle Beach overlooked by Pendennis Castle, lit at night and providing a great backdrop. The busy town and port is the home to the National Maritime Museum, located in Events Square and hosts numerous high-profile events throughout the year. Dine at Rick Stein’s fish restaurant, or dine al fresco at one of many water-front restaurants and bars. Art galleries, shops, cinema, tenpin bowling are all close by. The convenience of Crown House, is that once parked on the roadside by the property, guests can stroll in to town and enjoy a night out without the worry of driving. There are numerous small ferry services to Flushing and St Mawes or take a water taxi to one of the picturesque waterfront pubs. The area is popular for sailing, canoeing, surfing, fishing, golf, scuba diving or walking along one of the many scenic coastal paths. Enjoy exploring sub-tropical gardens including Trebah, Glendurgan or Trelissick. Take the train from Falmouth to the cathedral city of Truro, where you will find great shopping, a variety of quality restaurants and bars, theatre and museum. The area is close to the famous Helford river/passage and creeks and regular boat trips run from Falmouth. Visit the inn located on the pretty beach alongside the Helford, or take the sea safari to watch dolphins, basking sharks, seals and wildlife. After a busy day on the beach or exploring one of the world-class attractions, return to Crown House and relax with a drink on the patio taking in the view and watching the marine activity.
