Impressive south facing building plot with planning in an elevated position with far reaching rural and creek views.

About this property

  • The plot is in a south facing sheltered, private location with far reaching rural and creek views towards Restronguet Creek. The proposed design has been sensitively considered to create a building that reflects the neighbouring property, which was built in the colonial style around 1910 by a sea captain, but also to maximise the far-reaching views and fit within the landscape, much of which is designated an area of outstanding beauty.


    The surrounding countryside and creeks provide ample opportunities for walkers, and water sports enthusiasts with much of the surrounding countryside being owned and managed by the National Trust, including nearby Trelissick House and Gardens. There are good local golf courses within easy reach including Killiow and Truro Golf Club and of course many sailing clubs throughout the Carrick Roads. The Cathedral city of Truro, the administrative centre of Cornwall is only a short drive away and offers a very good range of schooling both state and private, a mainline rail link to London Paddington, an excellent range of national and independent shops, restaurants and bars along with a cinema, museum and a highly regarded theatre (currently under refurbishment). Cornwall Airport (Newquay) provides daily return flights to London as well as to other regional and European destinations.

    The Concept

    The proposed design has a “Cornwall meets colonial” feel and cleverly unites the inside and outside world via the veranda and decking areas. Almost all rooms have access to either the gardens or the veranda/balcony above.

    The reverse level living allows you to maximise the panoramic views that this site uniquely offers, with the main entrance and reception rooms being at first floor level accessed via a level walkway from the parking area. Downstairs there will be four bedrooms, 2 with en suite shower rooms, a family bathroom and a utility room.

    Outside

    From the road there will be a shared drive with the neighbouring properties before entering the private drive and parking area with garaging for the property. The house sits within its boundaries with garden all around. Extensive landscaping is proposed to help define the plot but also enhance the property within its environment.

    Agent Note

    There is an area of land of just under 1/3 acre immediately in front of the property which is available by separate negotiation.

    Services
    Mains water, electricity and drainage are all available from the road.

    The proposal for the building is to have a high level of insulation with an air source heat pump for underfloor heating with solar panels on the south west roof.

A superb opportunity to build a modern design house, sitting in the sought after area of Feock with creek views.
