The Location - Fowey is situated at the mouth of the River Fowey in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The neighbouring villages of Polruan and Bodinnick are a short ferry-ride across the estuary.
Set in the middle of the South Cornish coastline between Mevagissey and Looe, Fowey plays host to a number of major cultural and maritime events including the Daphne Du Maurier Literary Festival and the Fowey Royal Regatta.
Whilst Fowey remains a working, deep water port, it is also the perfect cruising base from which to explore the Channel Islands and beautiful harbours and creeks of the West Country.
Throughout the summer its harbour teems with boating activity, from competitive racing of the local Troy class, cruising yachts and dinghies, to large gaff-rigged wooden Oyster luggers and visiting cruise liners.
The town itself is rich in amenities with all manner of shops, banks, boutiques, bars, delicatessens and restaurants. It also has its own hospital, doctors and dentist surgery, as well as a library, primary and secondary schools.
Further amenities are available at St Austell and Bodmin (9 miles and 13 miles respectively) and Plymouth offers the full range of facilities expected of a city including a university and theatres.
The motorway road network as far as Exeter and then either the A30 (via Bodmin) or A38 (via Plymouth) makes Fowey very accessible. Regular Intercity rail services from Par (about 3 hours 53 minutes to London Paddington) and Plymouth (about 3 hours and 7 minutes to London Paddington) are even quicker. The growing number of flights to UK and international destinations from Newquay and Exeter Airports, and Brittany Ferries services from Plymouth to France and Spain, ensure that Fowey is now a viable destination or starting point of any journey.
The Property - Set in an elevated position, this imposing property benefits from the most stunning views across the harbour and out to sea. Built in 1806, this handsome property has been under the same ownership for many years and offers the opportunity to purchase a landmark house on the Fowey Estuary.
The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors, with each floor enjoying water views. The ground floor offers spacious accommodation in the form of kitchen, formal drawing room with dining area and further reception room.
On the first floor there are 3 spacious bedrooms, along with a large bathroom. The second floor provides 2 further bedrooms and 2 attic rooms offering scope for further bedrooms or ensuite facilities.
The accommodation is in need of some modernisation but with properties of this nature rarely coming to the market, Ropewalk offers huge potential for a new owner to create a fabulous seaside home.
Outside, the property is approached directly from Esplanade where there is a parking area and storage area. A wooden gate leads to a path which meanders to the front of the property, where there is a paved terrace with stunning estuary views. A garden area to the side of the house is laid to lawn and again benefits from lovely water views.
To one side of the house there is an outhouse used as a storage facility. Steps lead up from the side of the property to a further area of garden and grounds, which can be clearly shown on the plan.
