Contemporary architect designed family home set within 7 acres of gardens and paddocks, overlooking the beautiful upper reaches of Restronguet Creek


Devoran is a charming creekside village overlooking the upper reaches of Restronguet Creek. The area enjoys access to not only boating and sailing waters but also excellent countryside walking and riding along bridle paths and the Bissoe Trail, an 11 mile cycle path starting from Devoran and finishing on the north coast at Portreath. Amenities in Devoran include a doctors' surgery, village hall, highly-regarded primary school, church, chapel and the Old Quay Inn, a popular local pub. There are also three 18 hole golf courses within easy reach.

Restronguet Creek is ideal for keeping a boat and gives access to the beautiful creeks of the River Fal and Carrick Roads, arguably the finest day-sailing waters in England. There is a good choice of sailing clubs nearby at Mylor, Flushing and Restronguet. Devoran Boatyard has laying-up and covered storage facilities and can undertake repairs and small boat building.

The nearby village of Carnon Downs offers a small selection of local shops including a good butchers and convenience store and there is a regular bus service connecting Devoran with the cathedral city of Truro. While nearby Perranwell Station offers a regular train service to both Truro and Falmouth.

Truro boasts all the amenities of a small city including cinema, theatre, state and private schooling, supermarkets and a Farmers' Market. Truro Railway Station is on the main Penzance/Paddington line which also offers an overnight sleeper service to London making connections even more accessible.


Heron Creek is a contemporary house set in an elevated position overlooking the beautiful Tallack Creek, set in grounds of approximately seven and a half acres.

The house was the subject of a comprehensive renovation project in 2008 which included the rebuilding of most of the property. The result is a residence architecturally designed to take full advantage of its peerless setting, with an excellent bespoke finish throughout.

Refurbished to the highest standard, the interior has been beautifully finished. The ground floor features limestone flooring throughout, with all principle rooms opening out on to a decking area. The kitchen features a Corian work surface and Gagenau appliances and flows in to a spacious dining area and to the stunning sitting room. Designed in a semi-circle in a round-house style with a vaulted ceiling, contemporary wood-burner, and with wonderful aspects across the creek the sitting room is a fabulous area for relaxing or entertaining. The remainder of the ground floor is comprised of a snug and a study, as well as a separate utility room and a downstairs wet room. The ground floor has under floor heating which is powered by a ground source heat pump.

A winding walnut staircase leads to the first floor and the bedrooms which are arranged around a galleried landing. The spacious master bedroom suite features a walk-in wardrobe and well-appointed en suite bathroom, and has fabulous water views. There are two further en suite bedrooms, both with wonderful south facing creek views and a further two bedrooms overlooking the gardens and sharing a spacious family bathroom.


With a private drive and set in seven and a half acres of grounds, Heron Creek offers great privacy. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn and slopes towards the creek. Behind the house is a level garden, with great potential for a tennis court or swimming pool, an orchard, vegetable garden and paddocks, a stable block with five stables, a hay barn and a storeroom.

Square Footage: 3,565 sq ft
Acreage: 7.5 Acres
