Sitting on the banks of the river tamar, this comfortable three bedroom detached house is believed to have been built in the mid 1980's. Set down a private road, with gated driveway provides off road parking and giving access to the wrap around gardens and the property.
The principle living rooms and bedrooms all enjoy a Southerly aspect and uninterrupted views along the river. The gardens and the full length first floor balcony also afford exceptional views along the river and across to the open countryside beyond. Double glazed and benefiting from oil fired central heating, the property is relatively low maintenance.
Seldom do properties arise with their own quay and pontoon and direct access to the river. This is an ideal opportunity for those who enjoy sailing. Canoeing or kayaking to make the most of this idyllic location. The current vendor has his own motorboat moored alongside the pontoon and is happy to negotiate to include this if a buyer is interested. This is currently used for trips down the river to the nearby maritime city of Plymouth or for a day's fishing.


The village amenities are nearby offering a county primary school, train station with rail links to Plymouth where one can access the main Penzance to Paddington London line. There are also art centres and galleries, as well as public houses.
