    About this property

    • The appropriately named ‘Tranquil Waters' is a Cornish Gem in a unique position of privacy and seclusion' with panoramic 180 degree sweeping views of the water and the countryside beyond. This is a truly magical location reminiscent of ‘Swallows and Amazons' with its own boat launching facilities at the bottom of the garden.

      The property is at the end of a private lane, which then turns into a footpath, so there is no ‘through traffic'. The lane only serves other properties along its course. At the top of the long sweeping drive through the mature landscaped grounds is the main house with the very pretty one-bedroom cottage to the side and the pavilion style summer house hidden up behind the main house.

      All of the buildings have been designed in the ‘New England' style and all positioned to maximise the wonderful views. The main house has a lovely Shaker style spacious kitchen/dining room with doors out onto the large wooden decked sun terrace with conservatory/sunroom off to the side and the L-shaped vaulted ceiling sitting room with wood burning stove has doors out onto the west facing evening sun terrace/barbecue area.

      On the ground floor there is also a good-sized double room with en suite shower room, a utility and separate wc. On the first floor there is a large landing area of which there is the vaulted ceiling principal bedroom with French doors out onto its own private balcony, a bathroom and a further smaller bedroom at the back with handmade built-in bunk beds.

      The very charming one bedroomed guest cottage is accessed at first floor level straight into the open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room with doors to balcony to enjoy the fantastic views. An oak spiral staircase leads down to the bedroom and en suite shower room.

      Up behind the house is a very pretty single storey pavilion style summerhouse which has a covered veranda entrance. Currently the summer house has two separate rooms with a wc but could quite easily be made into an additional self-contained unit if required, subject to the necessary consents. Within the grounds there is also a garage with attached office/workshop at one end, a further garden/shed store, and at the bottom of the drive a large wooden boat house.

      The gardens extend to approximately 2 acres with areas of lawn, well established shrubberies and woodlands with a number of pretty areas to sit or follow the sun. Across the lane from the drive are steps down to the granite quay with low branches dipping over the water, giving it ‘secrecy' and seclusion with a small terrace area and a floating pontoon with winch, currently used to store two speed boats. The property also owns approximately 3.6 acres of foreshore, with tidal mooring rights.

      From the newly installed electric gates at the bottom of the drive is approximately 150m of driveway lined with well-established shrubbery and trees such that the house cannot be seen from the entrance offering complete privacy. At the top of the drive there is plenty of parking for a number of cars.
