Full description

A deeply unusual and interesting four bedroom PERIOD home set in quarter of an acre of gardens with ESTUARY VIEWS. Estuary views, close to quayside, planning permission, 1800 square feet, quarter of an acre, character and privacy, underuse storage - small boat. EPC Band G.

Situation - Polruan is a delightful fishing village, lying to the east side of the Fowey Estuary on the beautiful South East Cornwall coastline. It is a charming and relaxing village untroubled by the hustle and bustle of Fowey, yet linked with a regular ferry.
The waters of the estuary are renowned, with plentiful deep water moorings and some of the finest sailing waters in the country. For Landlubbers the area is often known as Du Maurier Country and has outstanding and beautifully unspoilt walks along the coastline in each direction.
The property is situated in the heart of the village, which enjoys a strong community spirit, two public houses, local shop, village primary school and post office.

Description - Polruan was known for its boat building and The Old Foundry was originally, as the name suggests, an anchor foundry. Today it is a successful holiday home, with large garden, watery views and a detached outbuilding which has planning permission for a single home. The property offers flexible accommodation over two levels. The reverse layout makes the most of the estuary views, extending to approximately 1621 square feet, the accommodation is surprisingly flexible and adaptable.

Accommodation - Tucked away in a lovely quiet position through a small alley off Fore Street, this surprisingly large four bedroomed family home is situated approximately 150 yards from the quayside.
Entered at the first floor level, through a welcoming hallway, turn left into the large open plan reception room which has splendid views. At the far end is the kitchen area with space for a dining table. There is also a bedroom and shower room at this level.
On the ground floor, there are two further double bedrooms, with one of these offering estuary and rooftop views. There is also a well-appointed bathroom. Finally on the ground floor, there is a second reception room which is currently used as a double bedroom. This room benefits from a door which gives immediate access to the rear garden.
Beneath the house is a large basement area suitable for the storage of kayaks or bicycles.
In addition, there is a vast loft with character beams that is ripe for conversion and this has views over the estuary.

Agent's Note - Planning permission was granted on 06/08/2014 to replace an existing single storey outbuilding in the rear garden with a single storey residential dwelling (planning ref. PA14/01823). A copy of the plans and planning consent are available for inspection at the Agent's office or online by using the following weblink:
This would create a wonderful opportunity for a prospective purchaser to create further accommodation or offers a significant investment opportunity.

Gardens & Grounds - This property occupies a generous plot extending to almost a quarter of an acre, which are secure for children and animals, from which estuary views over towards the town of Fowey can be enjoyed. Today they are largely laid to lawn with established beds but offer noteworthy opportunity for those with green fingers.
Additionally, outside the property is a courtyard area, where there is a door which opens to a storage area underneath the property.

Tenure - Freehold.

Council Tax Band - Band - unknown.

Services - Mains water and drainage. Electric. Heating - night storage heaters.
