Built in 1804 by Napoleon’s family and originally a Church, this gorgeous, semi-detached, three-storey, waterfront house is steeped in history. From the road, three sets of steps lead up to this charming house owned by an interior designer and decorated with great style.
This four-bedroom period property has everything required to provide a comfortable and elegant stay to groups of up to 10 people. Whether as an extended family or a large group of friends, you and your housemates are sure to enjoy a relaxing and fun-filled stay in Falmouth when you book this property.
The house was originally built in 1804, and has been redecorated to bring a touch of modernism, whilst staying very much in keeping with a traditional style. On the ground floor you’ll find an impressive kitchen dining area complete with double Belfast sink, a double oven and six ring gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer, and washing machine. The large bay window gives you 180° views of the river and harbour; a perfect accompaniment to a relaxing group meal.
On the first floor you’ll find a spacious lounge with high ceilings, sofas, and a window seat area complete with table. Once again a large bay window provides you with unbeatable views of the water. Also on the first floor are three bedrooms: one double, an additional double with an extra day bed, and one room featuring twin singles. Each of the rooms is decorated to an extremely high standard and furnished with items that perfectly complement the property’s period legacy.
The family bathroom on the first floor provides plenty of space, and features a freestanding claw foot bath, a large separate shower cubicle, and a toilet.
At the top of the house on the second floor you will find the final bedroom, complete with double bed and an additional daybed. This room benefits from an en-suite shower room and toilet.
Crown House is perfectly located to allow you easy access to Falmouth on foot, regular ferries to St Mawes and Flushing, water taxis to beautifully located pubs, scenic coastal paths, and wonderful subtropical gardens. A regular train service links you to Truro and the rest of Cornwall, making it easy for you to explore much further afield.
