Polruan - 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). Both Truro and Plymouth are approximately a one hour drive.
The Property - Situated just a short walk from the harbour and beach, this detached, substantial house offers spacious family living with lovely harbour views. Originally built as a Captain's house, the property has undergone major redevelopment by the current owners to provide a distinctive and contemporary styled home whilst retaining a number of character features. The property benefits from modern oil fired central heating and full double glazing.
Currently used as a family house, the light and airy accommodation is arranged over three floors. On the ground floor there is an attractive sitting room with engineered oak floor and bay window. A distinctive stone chimney breast housing a AGA wood burning stove is a focal point of this lovely room and stairs lead to the first floor. The large and stylish kitchen/dining room offers an excellent area for entertaining with Yorkshire limestone flag flooring, Rayburn and fire place housing Morso wood burning stove. This spacious, 22 ft room is triple aspect and has french doors opening to the patio at the rear of the house.
On the first floor there is a generous landing with stairs leading the the third floor. Doors open to three generous bedrooms, each with harbour views and a further room, currently used as a study, but easily used as a fourth bedroom. There is a family bath/shower room with white suite and tiled walls. A number of the bedrooms benefit from ample storage/hanging space.
The third floor comprises a 25 ft master suite with fabulous estuary views and an ensuite shower room. This room is very spacious and could easily be used as a second sitting room or studio/workshop area if necessary.
Outside - The property is approached directly from Fore Street via a tarmac entrance drive providing off road parking for at least 2 cars. There is a double garage (532 sq ft), also accessed from Fore Street, which is currently used for storage but has the potential for further development (subject to the usual permissions).
There is an area of lawn to the side and rear of the property and a paved patio accessed directly from the kitchen/family room. A stone stairway/steps leads to a detached outhouse to the rear of the property which is configured for use as a laundry and shower room. A further pathway leads to the side entrance of the garage and towards front of the garage and road access.
