Description

HAVING RECENTLY BEEN VOTED BEST B&B AND GUESTHOUSE BY CORNWALL TOURISM, THIS MULTI-AWARD WINNING BUSINESS DOUBLES AS AN EXQUITE FAMILY HOME WITHIN A SHORT WALK TO FOWEY HARBOUR AND IT'S AMENITEIS. HAVING BEEN EXTENSIVELY UPGRADED AT SIGNIFICANT EXPENSE, THIS STUNNING COASTAL HOMESTEAD PROVIDES LUXURIOUS LIVING ACCOMMODATION ACROSS 2 FLOORS WITH 5 DOUBLE BEDROOMS, 5 BATHROOMS AND 3 RECEPTIONS. BEING WELL PLACED FOR EASY ACCESS IN AND OUT OF THE BUSTLING HARBOUR TOWN OF FOWEY, THE PROPERT BOASTS PARKING FOR 4 CARS INCLUDING A GARAGE.

ACCOMMODATION

Having recently benefitted from a comprehensive program of refurbishment & remodelling, the internal accommodation has been transformed with painstaking detail to ensure the home enjoys a coastal theme with luxurious finishes throughout. On the ground floor there is a superb family living room with a feature inglenook including a huge granite lintel and slate hearth. The combination of building material through this space is evident and encapsulates the feeling of warmth this beautiful room affords. Accessed from the living room is a useful lobby space with access to an external yard. A spacious and well-appointed galley style kitchen has a pretty stained glass picture window through to the family room and an archway through to the sizable family breakfast room which boasts two large sky lights which ensures this section of the property is flooded with natural light. The breakfast room also benefits from cavernous storage cupboards and a designated space for laundry.

Located at the front of the property is an elegant formal dining room which offers plenty of room for entertaining to a large number of guests and has a beautiful feature cast iron fireplace flanked by two arched recesses.

The striking tiled floor hallway leads to a ground floor bedroom with en-suite shower room and a handsome turned staircase that ascends to the first floor.

On the first floor there are four further exquisitely designed double bedrooms and bathrooms each with their own blend of luxury, contemporary and coastal elegance.

OUTSIDE

To the rear of the property there is a pretty courtyard garden which is a real sun trap and has access to a large garage and rear parking area. A raised deck terrace provides a good degree of privacy with high walled boundaries and attractive timber trellis providing protection from the winds and is the perfect spot of alfresco dining.

WITHIN EASY REACH

The River Fowey is a charming and picturesque estuary which joins the sea off south Cornwall between Readymoney Cove and Polruan, stretching upstream for about 6 miles to the historic town of Lostwithiel, with a good deep water channel until just short of Golant, renowned for its safe anchorage and sailing.

In the summer months Fowey is a haven for sailors with the Royal Fowey Yacht Club and the Gallants Sailing Club at opposite ends of the main street, both overlooking the harbour and moored yachts, and both playing host to regular racing. The harbour has all the activity of a busy working harbour with ships of many nations entering and leaving, whilst the town itself is one of Cornwall's most historic and unspoilt seaport towns.

Much of the wooded banks opposite Fowey which surround Pont Pill creek are in the ownership of the National Trust. The beautiful coastal footpath known as the Hall Walk runs between Polruan and Bodinnick and continues along the South Cornish coast. The novelist Daphne du Maurier came to Fowey in her early twenties and immediately fell in love with the town, living for many years at Bodinnick where her parents bought a house in 1926. It was here she wrote The Loving Spirit which was published in 1931. Today the Fowey Festival of Arts & Literature is an important annual event in the Fowey calendar.

There are mainline rail stations at nearby Bodmin Parkway, St Austell, Par and Lostwithiel. The south coast port of Polperro is 6.5 miles away with Looe about 9 miles to the east and the old market town of Liskeard is about 15 miles distant. The city of Plymouth is approximately 35 miles to the east. There are also daily flights to London from Newquay Airport on the north Cornish Coast.

HOW TO GET THERE

Travelling south along the A390, after travelling through Lostwithiel, turn left onto the B3269. After 4 miles go straight over a roundabout onto the B3415. On reaching Fowey, go straight over 2 mini roundabouts and continue towards the town and down a steep hill. At the bottom of the steep hill, turn left onto Lostwithiel Street. Old Embassy House is approximately 100 yards on the left.

SERVICES

Mains electric, gas, water and drainage.
