Penquite House is a unique detached property set overlooking the river Fowey with unrivalled water and countryside views from all rooms.
Approached via a long, tree-line driveway which extends through open farmland, Penquite House sits near the end of this private road, and is adjacent to over five acres of beautiful farmland which is available to purchase with the property, by separate negotiation.
The gardens of Penquite House surround the property and extend below toward the waterfront. A newly constructed, detached garage has been built at the side of the house, and a gravelled driveway at the front of the property serves as parking for two-three vehicles.
Inside, Penquite House offers unique and flexible accommodation set over two floors, with two separate staircases leading to the accommodation wings.  On the ground floor the living space is open plan with multiple sets of French and bi-folding doors opening to the gardens, spacious & light sitting and dining spaces with contemporary inset log burning stove and a kitchen comprising central island, fitted units and walk-in larder.
Two of the bedrooms are located on the ground floor, the smallest room is accessed from the sitting area and would lend itself well to an office space or children?s playroom as well as offering an en-suite shower room. The second of the rooms is a suite with inner hall, overlooking the river and has French doors opening to the garden, and spacious en-suite bathroom. The master bedrooms are on the first floor where two large double bedrooms overlooking the river each have en-suite bathrooms, with the main room offering a separate dressing room.  The last of the bedrooms is accessed via a separate staircase, another en-suite bedroom with river and countryside views.
The sought after village of Golant is just over a mile distant where a range of watersports can be enjoyed. For extensive facilities the harbour town of Fowey is four miles away.
We recommend viewing Penquite House in order to appreciate the natural beauty and tranquility offered at this wonderful location.
