A detached property in A sought after location with lovely views to the sea and polruan. South facing gardens, driveway parking and double garage

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.

The Property

Situated in a fabulous location in a very sought after area of the town, a detached house with views to the sea and surrounding countryside.

The property benefits from an elevated position in a peaceful location with driveway parking and double garage. The gardens to the rear are south facing and both the property and gardens have lovely views to the sea.

The property is accessed from either the drive or pathway from Gallants Drive and the front door opens to an entrance hall, with door leading to the garage and internal door opening to the inner hallway of the house.

On the ground floor there is a lovely sitting room with large window overlooking the rear garden with views to the water. A door opens to the paved rear patio and there is an opening through to the study with double doors opening to the rear patio also.

The kitchen/dining room also overlooks the garden and has a range of base and wall units with breakfast bar and space for table and chairs. There is further storage in the form of a pantry and larger cupboard housing the washing machine. A door from the kitchen leads to the garage, with up and over door, and steps lead up to an attic/storage space, with potential for further development (subject to the relevant permissions).

There are two double bedrooms on this level, one with south facing window to the rear. The second bedroom is dual aspect with windows to both west and north elevations.

Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom/WC and further shower room with large walk in shower cubicle.

From the inner hall, stairs lead up to the first floor, where there is an area previously used as a small office, and a door opens to a further bedroom with south facing window and views to the sea. A door leads through to a fully tiled, en suite shower room.


The property boasts a corner plot on this sought after road with a shared access to the private driveway. There are deep borders with mature shrubs giving a good degree of privacy. A path leads around the front and side of the property to the rear garden and is bordered partly with walling and also with mature hedging and fencing.

To the rear, the garden is laid mainly to lawn with a number of mature shrubs and trees and planted borders. There is a greenhouse and an area suitable for raised beds. There is access from the rear of the garage to the garden.
