A charming 3 bedroom property incorporating three cottages into one, situated in an elevated and quiet position in the lovely waterside village of polruan. Two garages plus one parking space, good size gardens and the spectacular water views make this home A 'must see'.


Polruan lies on the east bank of the river Fowey, just inside the entrance to Fowey harbour. The village has its own general stores, sub post office, tea rooms, two public houses and a long established boat building and repair yard. The village is connected to Fowey, which has a wider range of small shops and businesses catering for most day to day needs, by a regular passenger ferry. The immediate area is surrounded by many miles of wonderful coast and countryside, much of which is in the ownership of the National Trust.

Once away from the immediate local lanes, there are good road connections to the motorway system via the A38/A30. Railway connections (London Paddington) can be made at a number of local stations (Par, Liskeard & Lostwithiel).

The Property

Harbour View is a three bedroom cottage (originally three cottages) and is situated in a quiet, elevated and desirable position overlooking the village. There are breathtaking broad and sweeping views of the estuary and across the river to Fowey from the garden and many of the internal rooms. Having the rare offering of two garages (again with exquisite views) and one parking space which are set slightly along the lane to the rear, this area might offer scope for redevelopment subject to the necessary permissions.

Having been a much loved second home for the last 35 years, the property would now benefit from some updating but offers versatile accommodation that has scope to be converted back to two cottages if required. Heating is by way of electric night storage heaters positioned throughout the house.

The property comprises entrance hall, kitchen, dining room, sitting room overlooking the front garden and with spectacular water views and with double doors through to a characterful lounge with feature natural stone fireplace and beamed ceiling, utility room with shower cubicle. To the first floor there are three double bedrooms, all with stunning water views (one master ensuite and being approached via its own staircase) and a large family bathroom. Ample storage is provided by the many built in cupboards positioned throughout.


The property is approached by Sydney Hill by foot to the front and Hockens Lane to the rear where the garaging and parking is located. The gardens lie to the front and comprise lawned areas together with a superb large slate terrace immediately adjacent to the house, along with a shed. The most impressive views of the estuary are to be enjoyed from this sunny spot; perfect to take in the sights of the bustling harbour. Rear access from the lane is down a flight of steps to a small yard area with shed and wood store, and in turn, access to the property by two back doors.

Harbour View is an end of terrace property and was originally three cottages but integrated over the years to form the good size home it currently is. Offering ample parking, charming accommodation and commanding fabulous views, it would make a splendid main home, home with annexe or second home/holiday let.
