Full description


Enjoying magnificent views over Restronguet Creek and the countryside beyond.
Located along the old tram road in a popular creek side village close to Truro. Delightful enclosed gardens. The majority of the rooms enjoy water views.

A wonderful opportunity to purchase a beautifully presented detached house with excellent uninterrupted water views over the upper reaches of the peaceful waters of Restronguet Creek. The house enjoys a sunny southerly aspect and the majority of the rooms enjoy water views. All of the rooms are of a good proportion and there is a feeling of light and space throughout. The property is located just off the tram road which is a single track lane running from Devoran to Penpol and dense boundaries provide a great deal of privacy from neighbouring properties. The house occupies a generous sized sheltered plot and the gardens have been heavily planted and landscaped to provide year round colour with many interesting shrubs and plants. The current owners have transformed Waterside to a very high standard in recent years, improvements include a bespoke handmade kitchen, luxurious modern bathrooms, replacement double glazing (many windows with attractive bespoke shutters), a wood burning stove has been fitted in the sitting room and the decoration is to the highest standard. Therefore there is very little for a prospective purchaser to do.

The accommodation is light and spacious, the sitting room has a large picture window that incorporates the spectacular ever changing water views and a large balcony accessed from the master bedroom provides plenty of sitting out space from which to enjoy the best of creek views. There are three double bedrooms, the master and guest bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms, large kitchen/breakfast room, lounge/dining room with the excellent views and luxurious bathroom. The majority of the gardens are located at the front of the house and are private and well stocked with many mature shrubs and plants. A tarmac driveway provides parking and there is a single garage. An internal viewing is essential.

Situation - Waterside is located within the sought after hamlet of Penpol which lies on Restronguet Creek which is approximately four and a half miles south of Truro city. The hamlet is surrounded by rolling countryside with scenic walks and the National Trust Gardens of Trelissick are within a short distance. Waterside itself is located at the far end of the Tramway which runs along the edge of the creek and is known for its abundance of wildlife and shore birds and provides a lovely walk to Point and onto Devoran. In the first half of the 19th Century Devoran was a busy port shipping iron ore which was transported to the village from the inland mining areas via the Redruth and Chacewater Four Gage Railway which ran along the old tram road between Devoran and Penpol. Local facilities are available at nearby Carnon Downs including a general store and doctors surgery. Devoran has the Old Quay Inn, primary school and church. The cathedral city of Truro is four to five miles away and is renowned for its excellent shopping centre including the flag ship Marks and Spencer store and newly opened Waitrose store and the historic port of Falmouth is approximately eight miles away.
