Tenure: Freehold

One of Fowey's finest period waterside houses: an elegant Georgian town house with delightful 3-4 bedroomed accommodation, superb harbour views and direct access to the water.


Surrounded by miles of delightful coast and countryside, much of
which is in the ownership of the National Trust, Fowey is a charming seaside town with beautiful period houses, excellent restaurants and of course a natural harbour that provides some of the best sailing waters in the county and access to the town by water at all states of the tide.

The town itself provides an excellent range of small shops catering for most day-to-day needs, along with very good restaurants, boutiques and galleries. Two local yacht clubs organise competitive sailing throughout the summer season and Fowey Harbour Commissioners maintain a very well run port for the benefit of leisure and commercial craft alike.

There are mainline rail stations at nearby Bodmin Parkway, St. Austell, Par and Lostwithiel. The south coast ports of Polperro and Looe are about 15 miles to the east and the charming harbourside village of Polruan is immediately across the water and can be reached by foot ferry. There are also three daily flights to London Gatwick from Cornwall Airport (Newquay) on the north coast.


One of a short terrace of three fine Georgian slate hung houses, the property offers sophisticated and spacious accommodation in an extremely convenient and central location in the heart of Fowey.

Facing south, the property enjoys outstanding views over the river, harbour entrance and out to sea. The house has versatile and beautifully presented accommodation arranged over three floors incorporating many period features including an attractive staircase, panelled doors and sash windows. Currently configured to provide three bedrooms with a second sitting room on the first floor, the accommodation is flexible and could be arranged as four bedrooms if required.

The attractive hallway with timber flooring and the original staircase leads to the well appointed, bespoke Landmark kitchen with an AGA and tiled flooring. A charming sitting room with a woodburner has coving to the ceiling and ceiling rose befitting of the era of the property. The bedrooms on the first and second floor are spacious with fabulous views to the water or to the town, taking in the iconic Place House. The bathrooms are refurbished to an excellent standard offering high quality fixtures and fittings with a luxurious, boutique feel.


A paved waterside terrace with a landing platform and steps leading down to the water provide the house with low maintenance outside space and direct access to the water. A solid timber door give access to the town quay if required. The present owner has the benefit of a frape mooring which is held on an annual licence from Fowey Harbour Commissioners.

There is also a wet room and useful utility room housed in a single storey building.


Of paramount importance in Fowey there is an allocated parking space set within a covered, secure and shared garage located on Lostwithiel Street approximately 350 yards from the house. The freehold title of this parking space is included within the sale of the property and is subject to an annual charge of approximately £850 including ground rent, service charge and insurance.
