Tenure: Freehold

Charming slate-hung waterfront house with private quay on Mylor Creek occupying an idyllic position with direct access to some of the finest sailing waters in the UK.


Church Road is without a doubt one of the most desirable and sought-after addresses in South Cornwall and winds its way along the south bank of the pretty creek from the village of Mylor Bridge towards the yacht haven at Mylor Churchtown. At low tide, there is a little beach at the end of Church Road, where the footpath continues to Mylor Churchtown.

The yachting and boating facilities at Mylor Yacht Harbour are some of the finest in Cornwall with extensive pontoon berths, moorings, A chandlery, boatyard, sailing club, and restaurants all at the entrance to Mylor Creek where it joins the deep waters of the Carrick Roads.


Built in 1988 by the present owners, Otter Cottage occupies a magnificent waterfront site near the end of Church Road, elevated above the creek, with fantastic 180 degree water views, taking in the unspoilt countryside on the opposite bank and the moored boats at Mylor Yacht Harbour and the Carrick Roads downstream.

Four bedroom accommodation over three levels hides behind a charming slate-hung façade, with a long terrace separating the house from the creek. Every main room in the house has stunning water views.

On the ground floor a large bespoke Smallbone kitchen-dining room spans the full width of the house with doors at either end opening out to the terraces. One end of the room, currently used as a snug, has an open fireplace which is perfect for winter evenings. The kitchen has built-in Miele appliances, a large pantry fridge, Siemens hob and an adjacent utility room with separate access to the rear of the house.

The hallway, staircases and landing are bright and airy in an atrium style and are open all the way to the roof where windows let in plenty of light. There is ample under-stairs storage on the ground floor, as well as a cloakroom and WC.

The sitting room is on the first floor, as is the main bedroom. Both of these rooms have dual-aspect views of the water and gardens and Juliet balconies on the water-facing windows. The sitting room has a Minsterstone fireplace, as in the snug below. The master bedroom has large built-in wardrobes and an en suite bath/shower room, with a freestanding roll-top bath and a large walk-in shower.

There are three further bedrooms on the second floor, with a family shower room and large airing cupboard off the upper half-landing. All of the second floor bedrooms have cleverly utilised under-eaves storage and there are two open storage areas on the half-landing.


There is a long single-width garage adjoining the rear of the house, with driveway access from the road, and a door to the garden at the other end. In addition there is a detached single double height garage on the other side of Church Road.

On the private quay is a useful boat store (approx 16’ x 8’) with a derrick boat lift and steps down on to the foreshore at low tide. Moorings are available on licence from the Council.


The terraced gardens and grounds stretch along the creek, and include a lawn, greenhouse and fruit cage, and a series of well-established flower beds with honeysuckle, roses, wisteria, bamboo and clematis. A stone bridge leads over the small pond into a second lawned area, where the path continues down to the private quay.

Square Footage: 2,304 sq ft
