Enjoying one of the most compelling views over the historic town of Fowey, this 3 bedroom detached Victorian home is located in an elevated position on a very sought after road. Peace and privacy can be found in the sun room and rear courtyard garden. Full of fantastic Victorian period features, the property does require modernising thus giving a rare opportunity to create something very special.
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.
Entering into the hallway via an inner porch, a door leads into the dual aspect sitting room. With a traditional bay window to the front and sliding glass doors leading out onto a substantial balcony to the rear. Having been originally two separate rooms, the sitting room now enjoys two Victorian fireplaces, one with wooden surround which could be opened up and the other, a traditional cast iron and tiled fire which is purely for decoration. The balcony provides the most absorbing views towards Place House - a 13th century local family residence, Fowey Parish Church and on to the busy estuary.
From the entrance hall stairs lead up to a large mid-landing window flooding the property with light and giving stunning views over the town and estuary. The stairs continue up to two double bedrooms and a bathroom with corner bath and shower over. The rear bedroom has built in storage cupboards and views over the town and estuary, the front bedroom looks up to the Old School House.
Further stairs lead up to a converted attic room with storage cupboards in the eaves, en suite WC and, again, fantastic views over the rooftops to the estuary. It does have restricted ceiling height.
From the entrance hall stairs also lead down to the open plan kitchen/dining room. The modern white kitchen has a built in electric oven, ample storage units and space for a dishwasher. The dining area has solid oak flooring leading out via glass sliding doors to a sun room which over looks the garden courtyard and decking area. Also, on this level is a WC and a door giving access to the side of the property.
Kimberley Villa fronts onto Daglands Road which is one of the most sought after addresses in Fowey. From the property it is only a short walk up to the main car park or down to the town centre and harbour. To the front of the house is a mature shrub border with steps leading up to the front door and an access lane leading down the side of the property to the rear garden. To the rear is a sunny patio courtyard with a raised decked sitting area, a wooden storage shed (with electric supply) and a stone storage lean to. The garden is surrounded by wooden fencing giving privacy and peace.
