Property Description

Full description


The Location - Polruan lies on the east bank of the river Fowey, just inside the entrance to Fowey harbour. The village has its own general stores, sub post office, tea rooms, two public houses and a long established boat building and repair yard. The village is connected to Fowey, which has a wider range of small shops and businesses catering for most day to day needs, by a regular passenger ferry. The immediate area is surrounded by many miles of wonderful coast and countryside, much of which is in the ownership of the National Trust. Once away from the immediate local lanes, there are good road connections to the motorway system via the A38/A30. Railway connections (London Paddington) can be made at a number of local stations (Par, Liskeard & Lostwithiel).

It was completely re-configured to make the best use of the space, with a new bespoke staircase, was tanked from top to bottom, new windows and full oil central heating were installed. Since then the boiler was updated in 2014 and the bathroom was fully renovated in 2015.
