Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautiful four bedroom coastal residence offering uninterrupted views across the river towards Fowey providing spacious and versitile accommodation.

The property is loosely divided in two with the main cottage spread over 3 floors with two bedrooms and further loft room presently used as a Study. There is an attached two bedroom guest annexe with its own separate access if required. The property is finished to a high standard throughout with the current owners having recently refitted the kitchen and paying particular attention to the quality, design and finish of the property whilst maintaining the character and charm of a cottage of it's
age.
The ground floor of the cottage is filled with character and comprises the recently refitted kitchen with a range of white wall and base units, inset oven and microwave and door to the rear porch. The triple aspect sitting room is an outstanding room with beamed ceiling and wood burning stove and slate hearth. The water views direct across to Fowey are stunning from this room and also look to the quay and beach below. Completing this floor is the dining room with timber floors, external door and window to the side elevation.
The first floor accommodation consists of two double bedrooms with one having glorious water views with the windows framing what could easily be confused for a picture because of its spectacular outlook. The family bathroom is also located on this floor. The second floor is a generous occasional room and also shows off the outstanding views across the river to Fowey.
A rare and extremely useful store room of this size and accessibility is located on the lower ground floor. This store room measures approx.
18'x17 and is ideal for storage of things such as kayaks, wet suits and the like. Equally it is perfect for a work shop. Rooms of this size in Polruan are most definitely not common place.
To the rear of the property is a lovely addition to the property of a 2 bedroom annexe. Access is via a private courtyard. There is tremendous
flexibility in this as there is separate access to the quay externally and also steps from the private courtyard to the rear porch of the main house. The annexe is also finished to a wonderful standard throughout and could be
let without impinging on the main house and at the same time perfect for guests to have their own space with only a few steps to gain access to the main house. The ground floor of the annexe has a kitchen and shower room with a quaint sitting room with wood burning stove being the focal point of the room and a window looking out toward the Fowey river. The
first floor has two double bedrooms and both also take advantage of the splendid river views.
