Tenure: Freehold

Gorgeous waterside home with four bedrooms, spacious living areas and fabulous water views. Blending traditional features with contemporary touches, private quay, ownership of foreshore and private moorings, this is a rare opportunity to purchase a truly wonderful house in one of Cornwall's most central yet peaceful locations.


Occupying a beautiful and sheltered position on the idyllic Pill Creek, Quay House faces south west and, with direct access to the water, is wonderfully placed to enjoy the best that south Cornwall has to offer. Off the main tourist routes, those who seek either tranquillity or boating adventures will be content.

Much of the surrounding countryside is owned and managed by the National Trust and is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with numerous country and creekside coastal walks to enjoy. There are good local golf courses within easy reach including The Killiow Estate and Golf Club and Truro Golf Club and of course many sailing clubs throughout the Carrick Roads.

The cathedral city of Truro is the administrative centre of Cornwall and offers good private schooling and mainline rail links to London Paddington. It has a small but comprehensive high street and a nice selection of boutiques, satisfying most day to day requirements, along with restaurants, a cinema, galleries, museums and theatre.

Further down the coast is the harbour town of Falmouth which, along with its excellent university, has a great selection of restaurants as well as yacht clubs and marinas, sandy beaches and the landmark National Maritime Museum.
Communications to Cornwall have vastly improved over recent years with the A30 dual carriageway just north of Truro giving fast access to the M5 motorway at Exeter. Cornwall Airport (Newquay) also provides regular shuttle flights to London Gatwick, Stansted and many other seasonal European destinations.


With a beautifully finished interior, 4 bedrooms, private gardens and direct water frontage with moorings and quay, Quay House offers a rare opportunity to purchase a wonderful permanent or holiday home in a peaceful yet central location. Originally built in around 1840, the property was extended in 1995 and now perfectly blends character and originality with modern touches.

The south west facing reception rooms on the ground floor, with underfloor heating throughout and a surround sound system in the living room, are spacious, linking well with the gardens and slate sun terraces. The kitchen/dining room, which is in part a conservatory extension, is particularly lovely. The 4th bedroom/study creates a versatile option for a ground floor bedroom if needed.

On the upper floor, centred around a galleried landing, the principal bedrooms (master en suite) have beautiful views of the creek. The master bedroom links to a very spacious dressing room with shower and WC. While the other rooms share a very spacious bathroom with free standing 'Airbath' and shower. Another nice feature is a small nursery/play area/study, between the two principle bedrooms that over looks the water.

Gardens and Grounds

The garden is laid to lawn, well screened with mature trees and overlooks the water, with the summerhouse to the far end in a perfect position to look down the creek. A series of slate paved terraces and a path descend to the private quay with steps to the water and 5 ft of depth at high tide. With ample space for sun loungers or a table and chairs, this is an unbeatable attribute. Also included is the ownership of foreshore (fundus) and private moorings. Completing the grounds, the courtyard garden to the rear provides good privacy and access to a two storey stone barn which is currently used for storage and there is a large single garage and parking for three cars.


Mains water and private drainage. Mains electricity. Oil fired central heating. Underfloor heating in kitchen, dining room and living room.

Square Footage: 2,429 sq ft


From Truro, follow the main A39 in the Falmouth direction, turning left at the second roundabout for Feock. At the first crossroads, turn left towards Trelissick and the King Harry Ferry. Take the first fork right to Feock and then turn right at the next T-junction. At the bottom of the hill, just before the bridge, turn left into Pill Lane, proceed along this road and you will find Quay House on your right hand side.
