Full description

A STUNNING PROPERTY, RECENTLY RENOVATED BY THE PRESENT OWNER TO CREATE A BEAUTIFUL SEASIDE HOME, with great attention to detail and stylish fixtures and fittings. Views across Polruan and to the harbour and attractive outside patio and gravelled garden area. VIEWING HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

The Location - Polruan lies on the east bank of the river Fowey, just inside the entrance to Fowey harbour. The village has its own general stores, sub post office, tea rooms, two public houses and a long established boat building and repair yard. The village is connected to Fowey, which has a wider range of small shops and businesses catering for most day to day needs, by a regular passenger ferry. The immediate area is surrounded by many miles of wonderful coast and countryside, much of which is in the ownership of the National Trust. Once away from the immediate local lanes, there are good road connections to the motorway system via the A38/A30. Railway connections (London Paddington) can be made at a number of local stations (Par, Liskeard & Lostwithiel).

The Property - Tucked way in a quiet location, this cottage has been renovated to a high specification by the current owner and provides a nautically themed seaside home. With great attention to detail, the owner has created a light and airy living space with bespoke kitchen and beautiful patio area to enjoy al fresco living. With many individual touches, the property is both charmingly quirky and stunning in one go.

On the ground floor, the delightful kitchen, with the tiled floor and oak work surface, offers modern day living at its best, with a staircase rising to the first floor. Through to the spacious sitting room with bay window, this area has a feeling of calm with carefully thought through colour schemes throughout the whole of the property to give a contemporary style to a traditional building. There are views towards the harbour from both the kitchen and the sitting room.

A further set of stairs lead up from the sitting room to the first floor where there are 3 bedrooms, one of which has stairs leading up to the attic room. The master bedroom is beautifully finished and offers lovely views across the garden area, over the roofs of Polruan and to the harbour. There is a generously sized single bedroom, again with views and a stunning bathroom, complete with freestanding bath and separate shower cubicle.

A further occasional bedroom has stairs leading up to the attic room, ideal as a child's bedroom, again with lovely views over Polruan and to the harbour.

There are a number of imaginative finishing touches to the property, including "Nest" system which operates remote cameras and smoke/co2 detectors with smartphone technology and useful lighting settings, along with cleverly incorporated storage areas making the most of the nooks of an older style property.

The property is accessed via a pedestrian pathway which leads to the spacious but enclosed paved patio area with imaginative and attractive fencing. A workshop provides additional storage and plumbing for washing machine, along with outside WC.

Outside - To the front of the property there is a gravelled garden area with views over the town to the harbour which is enclosed by fencing.

The neighbouring property has pedestrian access across the patio.
