Full description


Situated in a delightful location on the very edge of Restronguet Creek with tidal frontage onto the river and within this superb village between Truro and Falmouth. The property is much larger than first apparent with four bedrooms, double garage and ample parking.

General Comments - Tidal Reach is a unique opportunity to purchase a deceptively spacious detached property in the sought after creekside village of Devoran. As the name suggests the property is situated at the upper reaches of the river and at high tide the water is at the garden's edge. The house and gardens enjoy a sunny southerly aspect and there are pleasant views with the beautiful Carclew Estate in the distance as well as an abundance of wildlife and birds at low tide.

The property is located behind an open driveway but with dense boundaries which provide a good degree of privacy from neighbouring properties. Tidal Reach sits in a generous sized and sheltered plot and boasts many modern comforts such as double glazing, mains gas fired central heating, modern fitted kitchen and quality bathrooms. The current owners have maintained the property to a very high standard leaving very little for a prospective purchaser to do.

The Property - The accommodation is spacious, there are four bedrooms (the master with en-suite shower room), a study and a family bathroom. The main living area, which incorporates a kitchen, dining room and conservatory, has picture windows enjoying the spectacular ever-changing water views and the main feature of Tidal Reach is the superb conservatory at the rear which opens onto the sun terrace and both take full advantage of the views. The kitchen/dining room enjoys a similar aspect and furthermore there is a utility room and a sitting room with a gas fire. There is a brand new Worcester combination boiler whilst solar panels were an addition in 2014 and currently save approximately £1000 per annum on the electricity bill.

The gardens are well stocked with flower bed borders and dense boundaries providing privacy. At high tide it is possible to launch a canoe, kayak or a small rib as there is direct access to the creek. Deep water moorings are available further down Restronguet Creek and at nearby Loe beach - all enquiries should be made with the harbour master.

Devoran - Located along Greenbank Road, which is one of the most sought after roads within the village, Tidal Reach is tucked away and enjoys a high 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 "tramway" along the edge of the creek which is well known for its abundance of wildlife and shore birds and provides a lovely walk to the hamlets of Point and Penpol. Local facilities include the Parish church, popular public house, doctors surgery and a very popular primary school with an excellent reputation 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 harbour town of Falmouth, all 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 gauge railway which ran along the old tram road between Devoran and Penpol.
