DETACHED WATERSIDE RESIDENCE ENJOYING MAGNIFICENT VIEWS OVER RESTRONGUET CREEK, WITH THE, WOODED CARCLEW ESTATE BEYOND Located along Quay Road in one of the most sought after creek side village locations close to Truro. Delightful enclosed garden enjoying the views with approximately 38 yards of direct water frontage, slipway and pontoon. In need of modernisation but offering lots of accommodation and huge potential. Sold with no onward chain.

A wonderful opportunity to purchase a very large detached bungalow with excellent uninterrupted water views over the peaceful waters of Restronguet Creek with the added bonus of approximately 38 yards of water frontage as well as a slipway, pontoon and private beach. The bungalow and gardens enjoy a sunny southerly aspect, the water views are truly magnificent as well as the abundance of wildlife and birds at low tide.

The property occupies a very large double plot and the rear garden adjoins the creek yet there is still a very large front garden with a driveway providing plenty of parking for cars, caravans, trailers etc and a modern detached double garage has been built in recent years. The bungalow was extended substantially in 2001 when a separate annexe was added and there is potential to amalgamate this into one much larger dwelling and many other possibilities to suit individual preferences. The accommodation is arranged as a three bedroom home with two reception rooms and interconnecting two bedroom annexe with kitchen, sitting room and bathroom. The property has been in the same family ownership for approximately forty five years and whilst it has been well cared for during this time it is now in need of modernisation. However, it offers huge potential to create a wonderful home in a fantastic location with the added advantage of direct water frontage, perfect for boating enthusiasts. An internal viewing is essential to appreciate the size of the property, the fantastic views and the potential to create an individual home.

Fairways is located along Quay Road which is arguably the most sought after road within the village. The bungalow is set well back from the road and enjoys a good degree of privacy. The village of Devoran lies about five miles south of Truro, just off the A39 Truro to Falmouth road and is at the head of Restronguet Creek which is a tributary of the River Fal. The area is well known for scenic attractions with many walk ways in the area including the "Tram Way" along the edge of the creek which is known for its abundance of wildlife and shore birds and provides a lovely walk to the hamlets to Point and Penpol. Local facilities include the Parish Church, public house, doctors surgery and primary school with further facilities including a small supermarket in nearby Carnon Downs. Devoran lies close to the sailing waters of the Fal Estuary, the city of Truro and the harbourside town of Falmouth are within easy driving distance. The village also benefits from a regular bus service. In the first half of the 19th century Devoran was a busy port shipping iron ore which was transported to the village from the inland mining areas via the Redruth and Chacewater four gate railway which ran along the old tram road between Devoran and Penpol.
