Full description

A CHARMING AND VERY SPACIOUS FOUR BEDROOM VICTORIAN VILLA IN ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER LOCATIONS IN FOWEY. Full of period charm, this house enjoys dramatic views across the Fowey estuary. A parking space a short distance away is available to purchase separately.

28 Esplanade is a delightful home, built in the late-Victorian era, perfect either as a family residence or second home. Our clients, having loved and enjoyed the house as their main home for some 16 years, have made various improvements and updates to the property. The gorgeous property still retains its period character, with many original features such as beautiful fireplaces, large bay windows with shutters, sash windows, wooden floorboards, and pine doors with brass door furniture .

The accommodation is laid out over four floors, with front doors on both the ground and first floors, and a second staircase enabling access to the rear. This gives the property the flexibility to lend itself to a variety of configurations, including splitting into apartments, subject to the usual permissions and regulations. A secure parking space is available to purchase separately.

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 and high quality destination.
