Full description

AN OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE A GENEROUS SIZED, EXTENDED AND WELL PRESENTED PERIOD PROPERTY. Situated in an elevated and south easterly facing position, WITH ONE OF THE BEST SEA AND ESTUARY VIEWS IN FOWEY. Front and rear garden areas, double garage and parking.

Seahorses is a substantial Victorian house in a prime position on this most sought after road and has fantastic harbour and sea views. The extremely private and somewhat modest front elevation belies the stunning and spacious accommodation behind it's smart front door. The property has been subject to a number of improvements over the years including a beautiful kitchen extension, elegant master suite with panoramic harbour and sea views, enlarged bedrooms and boutique bathrooms. Seahorses is currently enjoyed as a super second home, but would make a very comfortable main family with flexible accommodation arranged over 3 floors. To the front of the property there is a pretty terrace from which to enjoy the delights of the harbour and at the rear are more landscaped paved terraces perfect for soaking up the afternoon sun. With a generous double garage and further parking, this property is surely one of the most desirable on the market at the moment in this ever popular location, and represents an opportunity not to be missed.

Fowey is regarded as one of the most attractive waterside communities in the county. Particularly well known as a popular sailing centre, the town has two thriving sailing clubs, a famous annual Regatta and excellent facilities for the keen yachtsman. For a small town Fowey provides a good range of shops and businesses catering for most day to day needs. The immediate area is surrounded by many miles of delightful coast and countryside much of which is in the ownership of the National Trust. Award winning restaurants, small boutique hotels, excellent public houses etc, have helped to establish Fowey as a popular, high quality, destination.

There are several excellent golf courses within easy reach, many world class gardens are to be found in the immediate area and the fascinating Eden Project with its futuristic biomes is just 5 miles to the north west. There are good road links to the motorway system via the A38/A30. Railway links to London, Paddington, can be made locally at Par, and St. Austell and there are flights to London and other destinations from Newquay.
