A BEAUTIFULLY RENOVATED COTTAGE ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF TOWN WITH DELIGHTFUL GARDENS AND PARKING. Viewing highly recommended to appreciate the quality and finish of this lovely home. NO ONWARD CHAIN.

The Location - Fowey is regarded as one of the most attractive waterside communities in the county. Particularly well known as a popular sailing centre, the town has two thriving sailing clubs, a famous annual Regatta and excellent facilities for the keen yachtsman. For a small town Fowey provides a good range of shops and businesses catering for most day to day needs. The immediate area is surrounded by many miles of delightful coast and countryside much of which is in the ownership of the National Trust. Award winning restaurants, small boutique hotels, excellent public houses etc, have helped to establish Fowey as a popular, high quality, destination.

There are several excellent golf courses within easy reach, many world class gardens are to be found in the immediate area and the fascinating Eden Project with its futuristic biomes is just 5 miles to the north west. There are good road links to the motorway system via the A38/A30. Railway links to London, Paddington, can be made locally at Par, and St. Austell and there are flights to London and other destinations from Newquay.

Positioned on the outskirts of the town, the cottage is one of a handful of properties in the hamlet of Newtown.

The Property - Believed to have been built circa 200 years ago, the cottage has been extensively renovated by the current owners with great attention to detail and now offers a beautiful family home. With a spacious and enclosed garden to the rear extending to approximately 150 ft, there is also the benefit of the recent addition of a wooden cabin, positioned to catch the last of the sun's rays. There is parking for 4 vehicles and the property is double glazed with gas central heating.

The living accommodation on the ground floor offers a flexible living space with a delightful dining area opening to a well appointed kitchen overlooking the rear garden. The charming sitting room, with wooden floor has a multi fuel stove for those chillier evenings and there is a study area with utility room and downstairs cloakroom.

Stairs lead from the rear hallway to the first floor, where there are 3 beautifully appointed bedrooms, 2 of which have built in storage cupboards with hanging space. There is also a generous and stylish family bathroom on this floor. There are views across the garden to the rear and from the front of the property, across the road to neighbouring fields.

Outside - The front of the property is approached directly from the road with a gate opening to an attractive and low maintenance front garden.

The rear garden is accessed from the rear hallway with a paved patio, ideal for catching the morning sun, and steps leading to the stunning rear garden, planted with mature shrubs and plants. The garden is laid mainly to lawn, with a pathway meandering through, leading to timber storage shed set within a low maintenance planted area. Situated at the end of the garden is a recent addition in the form of a beautiful wooden cabin, positioned to catch the afternoon and evening sun. With a patio to the side of the cabin and decking to the front, this area is delightful and offers peace and privacy to enjoy al fresco living.

A wooden gate opening to a pathway leads to the gravelled parking area, where there is parking for 4 vehicles. Access to this parking area is via a drive to the side of the neighbouring property.
