An exciting opportunity to acquire a property boasting in the region of 300ft of river frontage in arguably one of the most desirable addresses in Cornwall.

Impressive accommodation is arranged over two floors with the majority of the rooms enjoying a direct river view.

The sitting/dining room with oak flooring is a sizeable and open plan room that spans the width of the main house. Windows to the rear aspect offer tremendous river views and lead to two decked balconies overlooking the river also. The main focal point of the sitting area is a central fireplace. French doors open into the kitchen. The kitchen has been fitted with a range of base mounted storage units and wall mounted display units. Central to the kitchen is an Aga and gas hob. Also a electric fitted oven, integrated dishwasher, large larder grid, separate freezer and butler sink. Work tops are granite and natural wood. Flooring is white limestone.

Lower Ground Floor

Stairs descend from the open plan living space into a spacious lower level hall. There are three sets of french doors opening onto the terrace area. This area mirrors the entrance hallway having been laid to the same Black Limestone floor. Part of this downstairs space was once a bedroom, so if buyers required this could easily be reverted with a dividing wall to include en suite toilet. Off this space there is a storage cupboard housing the recently replaced hot water cylinder and a downstairs Cloakroom with concealed lpg central heating boiler. Off one end of the room there is a double bedroom with concertina door opening to the rear and patio doors to the front.

The master bedroom is particularly noteworthy due to it’s impressive size and equally impressive en-suite bathroom. The bedroom enjoys a double aspect with double glazed windows to the rear and side and further patio doors to the side. There is a walk-in wardrobe space. The unique en-suite combines both generous proportions and has been well appointed. There is a luxurious sunken bath area with shower section with rain fall style shower, body jets and hand shower. All lined with Travertine tiles. Floor is also travertine and there is electric under floor heating. The tiling continues to the splash prone areas and flooring. There is a travertine wash hand basin set on vanity unit. Plus, low level WC and bidet.


Annexe: (measurements on the floor plan)
‘The adjoining Apple Loft represents a perfect opportunity to create an income, or to just be used for guest accommodation. Entry from the front is to a living/bedroom area with stairs descending to the lower floor. On the lower Floor there is a kitchen with fitted base mounted units, built in integrated washing machine and fridge plus domino hob and butler sink. There is also a wet room with Saniflo toilet, wash hand basin and shower area.

Double Garage:
At the top of the garden and joining the main road there are double gates and gravelled parking area in which two to three cars can park plus a double garage (measurements on the floor plan)

Potting Shed/Greenhouse:
This area is not in current regular use but with necessary consents could be converted.


There is too much to the gardens to truly do them justice in words and so a viewing really is the best way to appreciate. Throughout the well established gardens there is a wide variety of planting including mature shrubs, flowers and trees.

As previously mentioned; there is a shingled driveway leading to the garage and with gate opening onto the road. The top area of front garden has been mainly laid to lawn interspersed with mixed trees. Stairs descend to the front door and leading to the 'The Apple Loft'

The rear garden overlooks the creek and commences off the downstairs accommodation with a paved patio seating area. The perfect spot to sit and enjoy the views of the river, wildlife and to watch the world go by. Steps lead down from this area to a grassed quay, slipway, granite steps to water and level section. There is the potential to add moorings if required. This leads to a grassed area, pergola and bbq area.

Side Garden:
The majority of the gardens are to the side of the property commencing with a shingled seating area leading to a secluded lawned area with mixed planted boarders. From here you enter the 0.9 acre woodland all of which has water frontage. The most unique feature of the gardens must be the wooded area with a path leading through the trees to follow the contours of the water. At the end of the path there is a decked seating area almost completely hidden from the rest of the world.
