Situation - In a tranquil position overlooking the creek on the edge of this picturesque hamlet, Kinloss occupies an idyllic position.
Port Navas is an unspoilt hamlet near to renowned sub-tropical gardens including Trebah and Glendurgan and the Ferryboat Inn at Helford Passage. The hamlet is a haven for sailing enthusiasts and the Port Navas Yacht Club, with its bar and restaurant, caters for both social and boating members with moorings and pontoon berths available. Oysters are fattened at The Duchy Oyster Farm and whilst there is no village shop, there is the Old Reading Room which is now the village hall.
Ideally positioned for marine activities, there are plenty of opportunities to explore the plethora of wooded creeks including Frenchmans Creek immortalised by Daphne Du Maurier in her novel of the same name. The harbour town of Falmouth is about 7 miles, which opens onto the fine day sailing waters of the Carrick Roads.
The House - KInloss is approached over an attractive private driveway and stands within a commanding and private position, with all of the main rooms taking advantage of a superb outlook over Port Navas Creek. Having originally been constructed around the mid-1930s, the house retains much of its original charm and features typical of the pre-war period. Characteristics include a delightful Reception Hall with Galleried Landing over; two Minster stone fireplaces; a third original fireplace; original floorboards, joinery, doors and door knobs; picture rails; high ceilings and an original war-time blackout blind.

On the first floor, around the Central Landing are Four Bedrooms – all with creek views – Bathroom, Shower Room and a pleasant Sitting Room, which could, and has been used as a fifth Bedroom if desired.
The accommodation layout is shown on the floorplan and the house extends to about 2,967 sq ft (275 sqm).
Outside, adjoining the house is an Outhouse, former Privy and Store under the Conservatory Room.
The Gardens And Grounds - On the south eastern side of the house is a tiered formal garden with flowerbeds and shrubs which extend to a mature garden on the south western side with level lawn and tree standards including Scots Pine, Oak and Redwood. In the southern corner is a gate with steps down to the road allowing shorter access to the hamlet.
On the north eastern side of the house is an extensive paved seating and alfresco dining area with steps leading down to an adjacent Summerhouse about 10’ x 8’ with triple aspect.
From the paved terrace there is a path passing a Garden Shed about 8’ x 6’, which runs through the grounds and parallel to the entrance drive.
