A CHARMING GRADE II LISTED 2 BEDROOM COTTAGE, SITUATED IN THIS SOUGHT AFTER WATERSIDE VILLAGE. ELEVATED GARDEN WITH OUTSTANDING WATER VIEWS AND SUMMERHOUSE.
The Location - The village of Bodinnick hugs the Fowey river and lies in a Conservation Area, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and adjoins National Trust land. The famous and very beautiful Hall Walk, a footpath which winds its way around the estuary to Polruan, starts just a stone's throw from the property. Bodinnick was once home to the author Daphne Du Maurier and her house Ferryside sits opposite the Old Ferry Inn, which is over 400 years old. A frequent car ferry runs between Bodinnick and Caffa Mill in Fowey all year round providing an easy connection over the river.
There are charming beaches close by at Readymoney, Coombe Hawne (Haven) and Polridmouth, where Du Maurier's old beach house stands. To the other side of Bodinnick lie lovely beaches at Lantic Bay, Lantivet Bay and in a number of smaller coves along the coast toward Polperro. Bodinnick is perfectly situated for the beautiful cliff-top walk along the footpath to Polperro and on the other side of the River Fowey there is a lovely walk along the cliffs past Gribbin Head and on to Polkerris.
For the boat owner, Penmarlam (operated by Fowey Harbour Commissioners) is a short walk from the house, providing excellent public access to the sailing waters of the Fowey River, harbour and the open sea.
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 - This lovely, Grade II listed cottage dates back to the 16th Century and is positioned just a short walk up Bodinnick Hill from the ferry. This characterful property benefits from well presented accommodation and the garden is located along a pathway to the rear of the cottage, and has stunning, elevated, south facing views of the harbour.
The current owners have carried out a comprehensive list of improvement works to the property. The accommodation comprises an entrance hall (accessed from the paved terrace at the front of the cottage), from which an attractive door opens to the generous sitting room, with bay window and wooden floor. There is a multi fuel stove for those chillier evenings and an attractive staircase leads up to the first floor.
An opening leads through to the kitchen with a range of base and wall units and integrated fridge/freezer. A door opens to a pathway at the side of the cottage. There is a bathroom on the ground floor with bath and shower attachment.
On the first floor, there is a sizeable master bedroom, with a further bedroom and separate WC.
Outside - The cottage has a small front garden, as well as a rear garden accessed via a pathway. Steps lead up to an area of lawn with pathway leading to a summerhouse. This area of garden enjoys the most fantastic views across the water to Fowey and the harbour entrance.
Agents Note - The property has a flying freehold with its neighbouring property which protrudes underneath the sitting room. If you would like more information about this, please contact the office.
