The Location

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, high quality, destination.

There are several excellent golf courses within easy reach, many world class gardens are to be found in the immediate area and the fascinating Eden Project with its futuristic biomes is just 5 miles to the north west.

There are good road links to the motorway system via the A38/A30. Railway links to London, Paddington, can be made locally at Par, and St. Austell and there are flights to London and other destinations from Newquay.

Merchant's House And The Studio

A rare opportunity to acquire part of the town's history hidden away in the centre of Fowey with parking, access to a frape mooring (under license from Fowey Harbour) and the glorious harbour views you would expect from a property right on the water. Converted some years ago from the old cinema, Merchant's House has been lovingly updated and re-configured in recent times to provide two beautifully presented and stunning apartments, both of which provide holiday let income.

The Studio

A fabulous open plan ground floor apartment with a real wow-factor from the moment you open the Front Door from the communal hallway. The spacious main room with substantial statement multi-fuel burning stove has ample space for super-king size bed, generous seating area, and dining table and chairs. Double glazed French Doors open to the lovely balcony, being the perfect spot to while away the hours watching all the activity of this bustling harbour and popular sailing hub. A gate opens to steps to the water, frape mooring (under license) and foreshore at low tide. At the rear of the studio a door opens to a cleverly designed and well-appointed kitchen. Overlooking the water is a luxury shower room with separate w.c. The Studio is not surprisingly a popular holiday let.

Merchant's House

Ground Floor: From the communal hallway shared with The Studio, a door opens to the Merchant's House Entrance Lobby, with large storage cupboard . Stairs from the entrance lobby lead up to the

First Floor and open to the very smart Breakfast Kitchen which enjoys gorgeous views over the water. From the kitchen a sliding door opens to the

Inner hallway with doors that lead to, at one end, a large water-fronting Sun Terrace with ample space for relaxing and outdoor dining, and at the other to the impressive Sitting Room with Dining Area. A large picture window offers glorious views of the harbour. Bedroom Two being a generous twin bedroom with super views and an ensuite shower room, is accessed via the sitting room.

Stairs lead up from the sitting room to Second Floor Master Bedroom Suite. With is a fabulous room and even from the bed one can enjoy the expansive and elevated harbour views via the floor to ceiling fully glazed French Doors which open to a Juliet Balcony. The spacious ensuite bathroom is bright and appointed with a boutique hotel feel. There are various useful storage cupboards throughout the property.

In summary, Merchant’s House/The Studio ticks all the boxes for the discerning purchaser. Incredible water fronting location with stunning views from every window, access to the water and frape mooring (under license), central location yet hidden away, parking, outside spaces, stylishly presented with quality and attention to detail throughout, and income from holiday lettings, There is the potential to re-configure back to one property if so desired, subject to the usual permissions and regulations.
