What our client said
"Shore Partnership's marketing was excellent and their viewings were well-planned with no time-wasters. We just went out and they did everything. They found us an excellent buyer. And, when there were a few problems that could have derailed the sale, Tim kept everything together. We cannot say enough about the service they offer. In a tough market it’s good to have an agent like Shore on your side. Thank you for helping sell our house. We really don’t think it would have happened without you!"

Lime Tree House is located on the eastern edge of Penryn, just behind the 12th century Church of St Gluvias. The parish of St Gluvias pre-dates Penryn, founded around 1216 by the Bishop of Exeter, with the church we see today having been restored in 1883.
Penryn is now a vibrant town with a wide variety of small businesses based along the waterside with the historic town centre including coffee shops, bars, celebrated sushi restaurant, country stores, fishmongers, cycle shops, interiors boutique along with many others. The town is also on the branchline rail connecting Falmouth with Truro and the nearby university campus at Tremough provides a wide range of courses including performing and visual arts, along the Innovation Centre for independent Cornish businesses.
The nearby waterside village of Flushing is a magical setting with its streets lined with former sea captains’ houses.
Across the river, Falmouth, the thriving harbour town with its Packet Ships history and creative arts scene, boasts independent shops, restaurants, three beaches and buzzing atmosphere all year round. Twice a week at the nearby Tregew Farm is the popular and highly regarded Food Barn showcasing a wide variety of high-quality Cornish produce.
