Located under 2 miles from Fowey is this impressive southerly facing 4 bedroom farmhouse set centrally within 5 acres gardens and grounds with an excellent Dutch barn that offers great potential within the grounds. Set in a picturesque rural setting on the gentle slopes of a small valley, the house enjoys southerly and westerly aspects over the valley below and towards the coast in the distance. The property is set approximately two miles from the renowned harbourside town of Fowey and just over two miles from the sea and beach at Polkerris.

Set centrally within approximately 5 acres of southerly facing and gently sloping land, the house enjoys a great sense of privacy. A private driveway meanders its way to the house, taking in some delightful aspects of the backdrop towards the sea of St Austell Bay at Polkerris in the distance. Before reaching the house, the driveway passes the entrance to the large Dutch barn, before finally descending to the house itself.

This attractive former farmhouse has been the family home of our clients for many years and during their ownership, they have tastefully improved many areas of both the exterior and interior; the major addition being the two storey wing extension, that has added the vast family kitchen living room on the ground floor and the opulent master bedroom suite on the first floor, both of which enjoy the stunning southerly and westerly views. The original area of the house is the sitting room, dining room, large study, utility room and shower room on the ground floor. The first floor has three further bedrooms and two family bathrooms.

Located on the northern boundary is a cavernous Dutch barn. Approached through a five bar gate and over a large concrete hardstanding that provides parking and storage for numerous vehicles or boats, the barn is currently arranged into two main areas: an open fronted 44’ x 30’ double height storage area. The second is a large enclosed area that is currently divided into two large stables, an internal office or tack room and a large storage space. Subject to planning permission, the barn clearly has immense potential for many possible uses. The property also benefits from further useful outbuildings, including a small derelict cob and stone cart barn in the south western corner boundary.

The house is surrounded by mature lawns and fields, with two large sun terraces on the southerly side of the house, accessible from the kitchen, sitting room and study. Immediately beyond the terrace of the kitchen is a large level lawned area on the same level as the house making the perfect place to sit and soak up the sun, whilst relaxing with a cool glass of white wine.

Location

Fowey has for many years been renowned as a sailor’s haven, with the fine waters and interesting coastline to explore. It is the ideal location, not only for its stunning position set on the edge of the beautiful river, but also for its interesting architecture along with its numerous restaurants, pubs and shops, Fowey Harbour is well known for its safe anchorage, excellent sailing facilities and its boat building heritage and so throughout the summer, it is always bustling with numerous, interesting river and sea-going vessels alike. The town also plays host to a number of major cultural and maritime events including the renowned Daphne Du Maurier Literary Festival and Fowey Royal Regatta. The nearby village of Golant has an internationally recognised rowing club, paddle boarding, kayaking and also a waterside pub.

If you enjoy the great outdoors, then you will love the Fowey area as it offers superb walking along The South West Coastal Path with breathtaking scenery of Cornwall’s magnificent coastline. For the non sailing water sports enthusiast there are numerous other activities on your doorstep including: kayaking, paddle boarding, water skiing, windsurfing, power boating and coasteering to name but a few, as well as a superb beach at Readymoney Cove. Nearby Polkerris has a family friendly sandy beach and looks out into St Austell Bay.

Gardens & Grounds

The house is surrounded by mature lawns and fields, with two large sun terraces on the southerly side of the house, accessible from the kitchen, sitting room and study. Immediately beyond the terrace of the kitchen is a large level lawned area on the same level as the house making the perfect place to sit and soak up the sun, whilst relaxing with a cool glass of white wine.

A long private drive leads down from the road through one of the four connecting paddocks. The farmhouse itself enjoys a sunny southerly aspect and is surrounded by mature and well-planted gardens including terraces, lawns, herbaceous beds and a host of shrubs and ornamental trees including magnolia, roses, acers and hydrangeas. From the front lawn a path leads down and through the enchanting lost gardens of Little Pinnock!

The drive leads to a large parking area, adjacent to the farmhouse, providing ample parking for numerous vehicles.
