Harbourside Georgian residence in a wonderful position, with gardens to the front and rear, three bedrooms and a wonderful view of the workings of this famous historic port.

Location

Quay Road is a historic terrace of Grade II Listed cottages overlooking the picturesque harbour and village of Charlestown, a World Heritage Site. The charming village and working port remain largely unspoilt. The harbour is lined by pretty colourwashed cottages and converted former commercial buildings and is the home port for several beautiful square-rigged sailing ships. The village is popular as a location for films and TV productions, including Poldark, The Onedin Line and The Eagle Has Landed. This attractive terrace lies within the harbour itself, overlooking the port and down the estuary into the sea of St Austell Bay with its wonderful beaches and scenery.

Originally called 'Porthmear' or 'Polmear', Charlestown was developed as a port between c1790 - 1799 by Charles Rashleigh of Duporth, the younger son of the Rashleigh family of Menabilly. The success of the harbour and the development of the surrounding village led to its re-naming in c1791 to commemorate its founder, the port then being used for trade associated with the Cornish tin, copper and clay industries. Charles Rashleigh's protégé, Joseph Dingle, moved into Polmear Farm House in 1790, and was primarily responsible for the building of the village.

From the harbour there is access to the South West Coast Path with the sandy beaches of Duporth and Porthpean just a few hundred yards away to the south west. Porthpean also has a Sailing Club.

The nearby town of St Austell offers numerous shops, supermarkets and a leisure centre, plus a mainline railway station to London Paddington. The world-renowned Eden Project and the beautiful Lost Gardens of Heligan are both nearby. The attractive coastal town of Fowey is just eight miles distant and has a wide variety of interesting shops, restaurants and bars; the town is highly regarded for its excellent sailing facilities. The nearby Carlyon Bay Hotel includes the area's best golf course.

There are three daily flights to London Gatwick and other domestic and Europeanl destinations from Cornwall Airport, Newquay.

Description

15 Quay Road is a beautiful Georgian residence in a wonderful position facing on to the historic harbour and village of Charlestown, with views both across and down the estuary to the sea. Filled with period charm, the house is built to a traditional Georgian style, with a central hallway dividing the ground floor and the bedrooms accessed from a central landing on the first floor. A double reception room overlooks the harbour, with French doors opening to the rear courtyard. On the other side of the central hallway, a dining room at the front of the house shares the harbour views and features original Georgian alcoves and coving. The ground floor kitchen includes a Rayburn and opens to the rear courtyard.

An original turning staircase rises from the hallway to the first floor, where a large bathroom with a separate shower serves three bedrooms. The front bedrooms are both comfortable double rooms and share a lovely outlook, whilst the rear bedroom looks over the garden behind the house.

A large walled front garden allows the house privacy and catches the evening sun, with two excellent aspects across the harbour and down the estuary to the sea. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a central path leading to the front porch. Mature shrubs and specimens line the garden, creating a colourful inviting space.

At the rear of the house a courtyard contains a pretty stone outbuilding configured as a store and utility. The courtyard opens to a passageway allowing rear access, with another outbuilding used as a store set beside this, and a few steps up to the main lawn which looks over the top of the house to the village and the sea.

Square Footage: 1,233 sq ft
