Terraced gardens descend the river bank and cliff edge accommodating several mature fruit trees. A detached heavily insulated office/playhouse with balcony overlooks the creek as well as a further large balcony sun terrace and storeroom/workshop above, which was originally designed to convert into a single bedroomed letting unit/studio flat, both benefiting from light and power. PLANNING APPROVAL has also been granted to build a double garage with large loft room above which could be utilised for several different purposes. The 7.2m wide x 8.4m deep base for garage currently provides parking for 5-6 cars overlooking Wayside, Pill Creek and Countryside beyond. AN EARLY VIEWING IS UNHESITATINGLY RECOMMENDED TO APPRECIATE THIS PROPERTY AND ITS MAGICAL SURROUNDINGS.
The village of Feock is centred upon a historic Church and has many pleasant riverside walks including, just to the North of the Village, the National Trust owned Trelissick House and gardens, which have a national reputation for beautiful flora. Close by is the King Harry ferry which provides an access point to the superb Roseland Peninsula and destinations such as St Mawes and Porthscatho.

The picturesque Loe Beach is nearby, along with a sailing school, waterfront café and boating facilities which make it perfect for enjoyment along the Carrick Roads. Alongside this, nearby is a large well equipped children's play area and recreation ground, making the area well suited for child orientated families.
Feock sits comfortably within the catchment area for the highly regarded, sought-after Kea School, whilst a further range of educational facilities can be found within the nearby Cathedral City of Truro.

Lewis Haughton Wills are honoured to offer for sale this wonderful 4 bedroomed semi-detached property occupying quite simply a magical, breathtaking water frontage location overlooking Pill Creek with rolling Countryside beyond. This family home was originally purchased in 1965, having been passed amongst two generations in various shares, ‘Wayside’ is now offered for sale for the first time in approx 52 years!

Over the past years the property has seen many upgrades and modernisations and from 1984 - 1989 'Wayside' was successfully let out for holidays. I have also been informed that in 1988 there was planning approval for the house to be extended Southwards a further 3 metres. A turret window modelled on the water tower at Trelissick was also approved, with views down the creek and over the woods and farmland beyond.

Accommodation comprises; entrance hallway, utility/cloakroom, kitchen, dining room with study area and walk-in bay window seat, generous living room with wood burner and conservatory to the ground floor. The first floor serves all four bedrooms, family bathroom with en-suite facilities to one of the bedrooms.

As previously mentioned there is a small pontoon with Lay-up berths for five small boats at the bottom of the garden, with stern mooring sinkers in the creek bed and bow moorings to the cliff. The sinkers for the stern moorings are on the limit of Wayside’s fundus. Maximum length of the vessels is 30 feet, max draft is 1.2m with the ability to take the ground.

The South facing terraced gardens play host to a selection of mature fruit trees to include Kea Plums and saplings. Steps descend to the creek passing a large 23ft x 11ft storeroom/workshop with generous decked balcony which sits just below the base of the garage, kayak rack, further sheltered storage areas, and a detached Study/Playhouse with balcony. In winter 2011/12 the playhouse was converted to a study. It is white-pine lined and double insulated with a polythene liner and 50mm of Rockwool at the outer skin and 65mm of closed cell foam (Kingspan) foil taped at the joints inside that.

There is Planning consent to build a double garage with a large room above with pitched roof maximising the views which could be utilised for several different purposes depending on requirements. The garage base currently provides parking for 5-6 cars and has a drive-over strength of 3.5 tonnes and will take a uniformly distributed load of 0.5 tonnes per square metre. It is 7.2m wide by 8.4m deep.
