DESCRIPTION

Occupying a stunning position within a few hundred yards of Point Quay, with superb views down Restronguet and Penpol Creeks, a delightful detached cottage, thoughtfully and tastefully updated by the current owners combining a modern feel with original features, providing 3 double bedroom, 2 bathroom accommodation with the added attraction of level garden areas, also overlooking the water, along with off-road driveway parking.

THE PROPERTY

Positioned on what must be one of south Cornwall s most desired locations, with broad frontage to the quiet roadside between Point and Penpol where The Old Tram Road joins The Ropewalk , enjoying far-reaching water views to Restronguet Point, this appealing detached cottage has been sympathetically refurbished by the current owner and now provides modern and tasteful three-bedroomed accommodation with oil fired central heating and replacement uPVC double glazing.

The cottage stands towards the rear of the plot, therefore allowing the main garden areas to also enjoy the beautiful outlook, tidal changes and boating activity. An attractive brick-laid driveway and pedestrian path divides the front garden, with a large level lawn area to one side and potential to construct a garage, or extend the accommodation, subject to necessary consents. To the rear and side of the plot, a private and enclosed courtyard leads to a detached stone/block store with a pitched roof.

Inside, the accommodation is flexible, light and extremely well presented and briefly comprises: a triple aspect entrance porch leading to a reception room (currently dining) with views of the water, oak staircase and door to the sitting room, also featuring a window to the front of the cottage. A deep kitchen to the rear has been attractively reappointed with wooden worksurfaces and many storage cupboards with white door fronts, off which is a useful and good sized cloakroom/utility. To the rear of the kitchen, a door leads to a sun/store room with a variety of uses as further utility or storage space and external access to the enclosed courtyard. The first floor is surprisingly spacious and features three double bedrooms, two of which are front-facing with a large master en-suite, and a third (within a newer extension) adjacent to a second bathroom which can be closed-off to form a secondary en-suite bedroom.

THE LOCATION

Besides overlooking the beautiful Restronguet Creek and Penpol Creek, Point is approximately four miles from the cathedral city of Truro, whose excellent shopping, commercial, health, educational and leisure amenities, including major theatre venue, The Hall for Cornwall, are all within just a few minutes' drive away. Surrounded by beautiful unspoilt countryside, the highly sought-after waterside village of Point is just a few moments' walk away and whose waterside road, The Old Tram Road, provides a lovely level walk along the banks of Restronguet Creek, including to Devoran, where there is a doctors surgery, Devoran School, and public house, beyond which continues the cycle path and bridle way, as far as Portreath on the north coast. Carnon Downs is less than a mile away by road, with excellent day-to-day amenities which include a highly regarded convenience store with butchery counter, sub-post office, nursery, dental surgery, hairdressers, village hall, public house, impressive garden centre, and highly regular bus service to the neighbouring towns.
