The Location

Surrounded by miles of delightful coast and countryside, much of which is in the ownership of the National Trust, Fowey is a charming seaside town with beautiful period houses, excellent restaurants and of course a natural harbour that provides some of the best sailing waters in the county and access to the town by water at all states of the tide.

The town itself provides an excellent range of small shops catering for most day to day needs, along with very good restaurants, boutiques and galleries. Two local yacht clubs organise competitive sailing throughout the summer season and Fowey Harbour Commissioners maintain a very well run port for the benefit of leisure and commercial craft alike.

There are mainline rail stations at nearby Bodmin Parkway, St. Austell, Par and Lostwithiel. The south coast ports of Polperro and Looe are about 15 miles to the east and the old market town of Liskeard is about 18 miles distant. There are also daily flights to London from Newquay Airport on the north Cornish coast.

The Property

One of a short terrace of fine Georgian houses, the property offers sophisticated and spacious accommodation in a very convenient location in the heart of the town. Facing south east, the property enjoys outstanding views over the harbour, harbour entrance and out to sea. Grade II listed, the property has accommodation arranged over three floors and incorporates many delightful period features including attractive staircase, panelled doors and sash windows. Currently configured as a 3 bedroom house with second sitting room on the first floor, the accommodation is flexible.

The attractive hallway with wooden floor and original staircase leads to the well appointed, bespoke Landmark kitchen, with gas aga and tiled floor. A charming sitting room with wood burner has coving to the ceiling and ceiling rose befitting of the era of the property.

The bedrooms on the first and second floor are spacious with fabulous views to the water or to the town, taking in Place House. The bathrooms are refurbished to an excellent standard offering high quality fixtures and fittings.

Outside, there is a lovely paved terrace on the waterfront, with a landing platform and steps leading down to the water. A solid timber door give access to the town quay if required. The present owner has the benefit of a frape mooring which is held on an annual licence from Fowey Harbour Commissioners.

To the rear of the property there is a wet room and useful utility room housed in a single storey building.

There is also an allocated parking space set within a covered garage location approximately 300 meters from the house.
