Full description

Three/Four Bedrooms
Family Bathroom
Two En-suites
Integral Annex

Polperro is one of the most picturesque coastal villages in Cornwall with a myriad of colour washed cottages with slate roofs intertwined around narrow streets and the harbour which still has an active fishing fleet. The River Pol runs centrally down through the village straddled by a variety of bridges and cottages. There are numerous small shops, pubs and restaurants and art galleries providing all year round interest. Polperro offers facilities including a post office, general stores, doctors surgery and primary school and offers a range of pubs and restaurants.

Further facilities are available in the fishing port of Looe approximately four miles away which has a railway services offering branch line linking to Liskeard and a wider range of facilities including out of town superstore, hospital, healthcare centre and sport and leisure complex. Major department stores and outlets for most national retailers are located in Plymouth which also provides international ferry services, main line railway station, national marine aquarium, cinema complex and the Theatre Royal among other facilities.

The property occupies possibly the best location within Polperro and enjoys totally unobstructed views over the village, harbour, surrounding hillside and towards the English Channel. The scenery in this part of Cornwall is quite exceptional. Set high above the harbour, this position provides surprising privacy with the property set well apart from its neighbours but located within approximately 150 yards of the centre of the village.

Built in the 1960s, this detached house has been updated in various areas by the current owners and particular attention has been paid to the improvement of the balcony areas. An important asset to the property is the availability of parking and there is a legal right to a parking space to the rear. Currently arranged as reverse level accommodation to the ground floor there are two bedrooms, one of which could also be used to form part of an integral annex with a separate kitchen, lounge, dining room and shower room and side access. To the first floor is the master bedroom en-suite, lounge and dining room. The kitchen has been extended to now incorporate the former balcony area providing a wonderful viewing point.
