A stylish gem nestled on the edge of a peninsula with spectacular views over Fowey town and estuary and out to sea with a chic waterside sunbathing and alfresco terrace with stylish outdoor kitchen area.

Hidden away in a particularly beautiful and peaceful area of Polruan known affectionately by the locals as the 'Gucci' end of the village, you will find this single storey stone property built on the edge of the coastline.

The contemporary open plan living and kitchen has lots of character with exposed stone, fine oak flooring and solid oak feature doors and windows.  There are high-end Miele appliances in the kitchen and a contemporary solid wood dining table. A Swedish style wood burner sits centrally in the room where you will find recessed lighting and oak and glass bespoke sliding door and windows opening onto the terrace.  There is a distinctly Mediterranean feel here on summer days with a sprinkling of trees and views of the sea and estuary where you can relax on a lounger or dine alfresco watching the yachts and fishing boats meandering in and out of the estuary.  The newly landscaped garden is terraced to two levels with Cornish slate and a contemporary outdoor kitchen area including a sink; barbeque area and specialist outdoor lighting.

The two bedrooms are uncluttered decorated in soothing neutral colours with lots of rich contemporary oak and original classic Travel Posters from the 1940's.   Both bedrooms have sea views and large white en-suite bathrooms whilst the Master Bedroom has an additional single bed and glass sliding doors opening to the waterside terrace.   

Polruan is charming and unspoilt with pretty little fishing cottages; narrow roads and alleyways. There are a couple of shops; a lovely cafe and two welcoming local pubs. Lots of beautiful walks are on your doorstep or you can cross the estuary to Fowey using the passenger ferry running from the harbour; or the car ferry just a couple of miles away at Bodinick. Over the water at Fowey, you will find chic restaurants; specialist shops, fun cafes, pubs, two yacht clubs and a beach at Readymoney Cove. Polkerris Beach is also just a few miles from Fowey offering water sports facilities; a cafe; pub with a large terrace overlooking the beach; and a stylish restaurant/bar on the beach.
