Spacious apartment in an iconic stately house, set in an idyllic location with direct access to the Carrick Roads.
Dating from the late 1800's, Greatwood House, which is not Listed, has a colorful history and is one of the most iconic buildings on the Carrick Roads. Set in about 2 acres of beautifully maintained gardens and grounds, the building was converted into just 7 apartments in the early 1980's, with Flat 6 occupying a substantial section of the first floor.
Offering fabulous views over the gardens to the Carrick Roads and out to sea, the apartment has over 2,100 sqft of accommodation including a reception hall, two imposing reception rooms, four bedrooms, two bath/shower rooms and a generous kitchen.
Set at the end of a private lane which leads into the drive that sweeps past the house, offering plenty of parking space, and on to the garage block where there is further parking space, a single garage for each apartment and shared refuse store.
A path leads down the edge of the gardens to a designated area for the storing of small boats, dinghies, tenders or kayaks, and on to a gate that leads to a shared slipway. For boating enthusiasts, the residents of Greatwood House have the option to take on a mooring, licensed from Cornwall Council, suitable for vessels of up to 40 ft.
The formal gardens and grounds are all to the front and side of the house leading down to the water's edge where there is a seating area. The grounds are well stocked with a variety of trees and shrubs and well maintained.
