Situation - Nestling neatly on the banks of the River Tamar, Marshmoor is set on the rural outskirts of the riverside hamlet of Weir Quay, with views across the river to Cornwall. The Bere Peninsula offers wonderful countryside between the Rivers Tamar and Tavy.
Weir Quay is a delightful and much sought after hamlet within the Bere Peninsula on the eastern banks of the River Tamar. The area is renowned for the warm climate, clean bathing waters and air, rich in beauty and history and clearly deserving its status as an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'.
The property is located approximately 8 miles from the market town of Tavistock and only a short drive to Dartmoor National Park and the historic Naval city of Plymouth, with all the amenities of a large modern city, including excellent opportunities for sailing with comprehensive marina facilities providing access to some of the finest uncrowded sailing in the country.
Marshmoor is located in a quiet backwater, ideally suited to those seeking peace and tranquillity, only occasionally disturbed by a passing sailing boat or the cry of a pheasant, which nature lovers will appreciate. For more active pursuits, shooting, fishing and horse riding are all available nearby.
A short stroll away is the all tide public slipway and a well-regarded sailing club. There is also a boatyard offering moorings deep draft yachts. Nearby are many other activities including golf and horse riding. It is approximately 2 miles from the villages of Bere Ferrers and Bere Alston with a wide range of shops, pubs, primary school, doctors' surgery and train station providing a direct line to Plymouth. Weir Quay is a peaceful haven for wildlife and is famous for wading birds. The Tamar Valley Discovery Trail follows the riverbank.

Description - Marshmoor was originally constructed in 1966 but recent extensions and refurbishment make it feel much more contemporary. It is a wonderful house for entertaining, with its current floor plan flowing effortlessly throughout with a wonderful light and airy feel, particularly enhanced by the reception rooms on the ground floor than open out onto gardens. Most rooms enjoy far reaching views over the River Tamar and surrounding rolling green countryside.
Outside the property is approached by a sweeping driveway with ample parking as well as a large garage with roller door and room in the roof above perfect for storage. The house is situated on the most elevated part of the plot, to take advantage of the stunning views, and is sited within mature gardens that measure in excess of one acre. At the foot of the paddock a path leads to the top of the river bank.

Accommodation - This spectacular waterside home is located in a quiet position, with attractive lawns that run down to a right of way for the owner to pass over the marsh to the creek. Moorings are available at either Cargreen or Weir Quay making this a fine maritime home, indeed, the current owners are selling to realise their dream of sailing around the world.
The layout of the accommodation complements both formal entertaining and comfortable day to day living. The fixtures and fittings throughout the house are of the highest quality, creating a fantastic atmosphere and a house full of light. The recent extensions to the ground and first floor have transformed this already fine home into something more spectacular.
The reception accommodation principally consists of two large rooms. The sitting room is a more formal affair with warming wood burning stove and large picture windows looking out over the water. The kitchen breakfast room is informally and loosely laid out to create space for relaxing, dining and cooking. Like the sitting room, this room enjoys far reaching views. The kitchen itself is a contemporary affair with a Neff induction hob, fan oven and a built-in Panasonic microwave, whilst an Aga is a nod to the more traditional, a central island adds to the social feeling of this stunning room.
Stairs lead to the first floor and the two principal bedrooms enjoy some of the best watery views. The master is has its own recently constructed facilities. One of Marshmoor's strongest suits is storage, in line with this all the bedrooms have built-in storage.

There are many green and environmental features throughout this eco home, it has one of the highest EPC ratings that we have seen. These include extensive modern insulation, air source heat pump, underfloor heating in the majority of the ground floor, Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels generating substantial annual income, which means this house is not only easily to live in but benefits from low running costs.

Gardens & Grounds - Extending to 1.054 acres (0.426 ha) the grounds are a spectacular feature of this lovely family home. The house is approached by its own gated driveway which sweeps down to the front of the house providing plenty of off road parking. They are secure for animals and children with numerous established plants, bushes, trees and are emblazed in colour throughout the year. The gardens are not only pretty but also productive, with five different types of apple trees, pear and plum, cobb nut and various cherry trees. There are also wild plum trees along the edges of the property which make nice plum gin! Fruit bushes include blueberry, gooseberry, blackberry, quince and raspberry and a productive grapevine.
Beyond the formal gardens is an a ample lawned area which could make a fine paddock that slopes gently away from the property and at the far end of this paddock there is a pedestrian access to the river front, where the owners are able to access the river bank for recreational purposes.
