Situation - Fowey is situated at the mouth of the River Fowey in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Set in the middle of the South Cornish coastline between Mevagissey and Looe, Fowey plays host to a number of major cultural and maritime events including the Daphne Du Maurier Literary Festival ( now called Fowey Festival Arts and Literature) and the Fowey Royal Regatta.

Whilst Fowey remains a working, deep water port, it is also the perfect cruising base from which to explore the beautiful harbours and creeks of the West Country. Throughout the summer the harbour teems with boating activity, from competitive racing of the local Troy class, cruising yachts and dinghies, to large gaff-rigged wooden Oyster luggers and visiting cruise liners.

The town is rich in amenities with all manner of shops, bank, boutiques, bars, delicatessens and restaurants. It also has its own doctors and dentists surgeries, as well as a library, primary and secondary schools.

Further amenities are available at St Austell and Bodmin (9 miles and 13 miles respectively) and Plymouth offers the full range of facilities expected of a city including a university and theatres.

The motorway road network as far as Exeter and then either the A30 (via Bodmin) or A38 (via Plymouth) makes Fowey very accessible. Regular Intercity rail services from Par (approximately 3 hours 53 minutes to London Paddington) and Plymouth are even quicker. The growing number of flights to UK and international destinations from Newquay and Exeter Airports, and Brittany Ferries services from Plymouth to France and Spain, ensure that Fowey is a viable destination or starting point of any journey.

The Property - Renovated by the current owners to the very high standards, this lovely home offers elegant and flexible living accommodation over 3 floors and with a separate studio annexe.

The property is situated on Fowey’s most sought after roads and is just a short walk to the town centre. This beautiful Victorian villa, built circa 1890, has been significantly renovated over the last 10 years and now offers spacious and flexible living space over 3 floors, with the majority of the rooms enjoying stunning water views. The property retains many of the original features typical of the period including flooring tiles, fireplaces, balustrade staircase and ceiling coving.

The property is accessed via a shared access way, directly from Tower Park, with steps leading up to a gravelled terrace from where there are breath taking water views. A pathway leads to the side of the property where the entrance door opens to a stunning hallway, complete with original floor tiles and attractive oak flooring and doors leading to all principal rooms. An elegant balustrade staircase leads to the first floor.

The drawing room and dining room both have large bay windows and views to the water and Polruan on the opposite headland. The stunning bespoke kitchen offers a range of built in appliances and attractive Silastone and solid Oak work surfaces and leads to a further dining area with Karndean “slate” floor and bi folding doors which open to a pathway at the side of the house and steps
leading to the garden.

On the first floor, the master suite affords fabulous views to the water and incorporates a walk through dressing room to a sizeable and well appointed en suite bathroom. There is a further bedroom with en suite bathroom and a study with double doors opening to a balcony affording lovely water views. On the second floor there are a further three bedrooms and family bathroom.

A separate Annexe offers further accommodation, complete with kitchenette area and shower room. This useful flexible space could also be used as a home office, guest bedroom suite, Gym or even turned back into a garage.

Outside - There is parking for several vehicles accessed directly from Tower Park, in the form of a paved and walled area. Steps lead down from the parking area to a beautifully planted, terraced garden with pathway meandering down to a decked area set into the rocks, a perfect place to watch the toing and froing of the harbour. Steps lead further down to the water.

To the rear of the house, steps lead up to a garden area, laid to lawn and enclosed by attractive stone walling. Borders supply an interesting array of plants and shrubs and there is a Victorian style aluminium greenhouse and further area housing a vegetable plot. This area attracts the sun all day and into the evening.
