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).
The Location - Just across the water, Fowey is regarded as one of the most attractive waterside communities in the county. Particularly well known as a popular sailing centre, the town has two thriving sailing clubs, a famous annual Regatta and excellent facilities for the keen yachtsman. For a small town Fowey provides a good range of shops and businesses catering for most day to day needs. The immediate area is surrounded by many miles of delightful coast and countryside much of which is in the ownership of the National Trust. Award winning restaurants, small boutique hotels, excellent public houses etc, have helped to establish Fowey as a popular, high quality, destination.
52a Fore Street is set back from the main road via a private lane allowing a degree of privacy. The property is within easy walking distance of the harbour, local amenities and the start of the Hall walk.
The Property - A two bedroom, detached bungalow set in generous, level grounds right in the heart of the village. The property is accessed via steps into the kitchen with large windows taking in views over the village and out to the estuary. A hallway leads into the spacious sitting room with a wood burning stove, Cornish stone fire surround and double doors out to a fully glazed conservatory running the length of the Sitting room. The property has two double bedrooms and bathroom.
Internal steps lead down to the garage, workshop and utility area which flies under the whole property creating space to store boats, cars or other large items. Surrounding the house on this level plot is parking for numerous cars, gardens laid to lawn with ponds, matures shrubs and lots of scope for future development or landscaping.
The bungalow in its present condition is in need of updating but planning permission has been granted to extend up and out to create a spacious five bedroom home making the most of the views. This is a unique opportunity to acquire a level, generous plot right in the centre of the village yet close to the harbour and amenities and a chance to create a fantastic home with plenty of outside space for gardens, parking and storage.
