A stunning modern home with direct water access set in nearly 2 acres of gardens and pasture. EPC Band C.
 
Situation
This stunning home is located in the picturesque fringes of the rural yet not remote hamlet of St Veep. Nestled neatly above the Fowey Estuary, and close to the ancient stannary town of Lostwithiel with extensive facilities. Nearby Lerryn is a hidden gem and one of Cornwall's most picturesque waterside villages.
 
Fowey is close by at the mouth of the estuary and is a delightful haven for those that enjoy messing about in boats. It is renowned as a safe, deep water anchorage with glorious sailing waters. The area, as a whole, is often known as Du Maurier country and has outstanding and beautifully unspoilt dog walks.
 
Leggyfoot stands in a prominent position with a southerly orientation with southerly panoramic views over rolling green countryside. Communications are easy with a mainline railway station in Lostwithiel and both the main trunk roads of the A38 and A30 are readily accessible.

Description
Constructed a little over a decade ago, to a very high standard, this stunning waterside home, benefits from an impressive open plan living accommodation, bathed in natural light from its facing orientation, roof lights and a wall of glass which opens with Bi-folding doors, allowing access to the formal gardens and land and allowing you to enjoy the stunning far reaching views.
 
The generously proportioned accommodation is complimented by high quality fixtures, often bespoke, and fabulous features like the stunning bespoke kitchen including island, and the deeply impressive reception accommodation, warmed by a woodburner stove and underfloor heating.
 
A lovely spiral staircase leads up to a Mezzanine level with fabulous views across the countryside. This spacious upper area is currently utilised as a study and leads on to the master bedroom suite, again with stunning, south facing views.
 
Immediately surround the house are level formal gardens, offering further potential and beyond this is pasture that leads to the river.

Accommodation
Approached from a sizeable gravelled driveway, with plenty of parking and turning space a welcoming storm porch provides somewhere to kick off the wellies. Crossing the threshold, your eye is immediately drawn straight through the hallway and sitting room to the views. The reception accommodation is broadly L shaped, with vaulted ceilings that are open to the library above, this space is perfect for entertaining and offers flexible space.
 
The kitchen is open to the reception accommodation and is a chef's dream.
 
There are four good size bedrooms; each with a high degree of independence and four bath or shower rooms.
Planning permission has also been granted to extend the property to make a beautiful 6 bedroom with 5 en-suite spacious home if needed.

Garden and Grounds
The house is designed to make full use of the gardens; to the rear the decked areas give the opportunity to enjoy al-fresco living and dining to the full. There is a large gravelled driveway and area with parking for numerous vehicles or boats and plenty of space to create a garage if needed.
 
The curtilage extends to almost 2 acres (see plan) leading from the house across a lawned area and down to the private water-fronting creek with the remains of a medieval quay and woodland (with planning for jetty) providing direct assess to Penpol Creek. Suitable for the launching and mooring of boats (subject to FHC licensing), fishing and other water activities, or simply enjoying the beauty and peace of the creek side location.
 
It is our client's intention to construct the Jetty and fence the land prior to purchase.
