This fascinating property is located in a glorious position on the banks of the river Tamar at Calstock. One of only a handful of properties in the village with direct access to the water's edge, the property enjoys a quite remarkable outlook up and down the river, including a breath-taking view of Calstock railway viaduct. Those with an interest in sailing or other waterborne pursuits, such as kayaking or paddleboarding, should take particular note; there is tidal access to Plymouth Sound, approx. 12 nautical miles downriver. Calstock is a former inland port on the tidal path of the river Tamar, now enjoyed by sailing enthusiasts who use the quay and mooring facilities, with the village enjoying an excellent community spirit and a regular, 35-minute train service to the City of Plymouth. Calstock falls within the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape - a UNESCO World Heritage Site and conservation area - as well as the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The village of Gunnislake is 2 miles away and the thriving market town of Tavistock, with its superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities is just 7 miles away to the northeast.

This is an incredible opportunity to purchase a low-maintenance home in a hugely picturesque and convenient riverside setting. The stand-out feature is the direct access to the river Tamar, which affords the exceptionally rare ability to pull a boat up alongside the property and to access it from the southwest-facing decking, making this a lifestyle opportunity like no other within this price bracket. The accommodation has been cleverly adapted to maximise the available living and storage space, and there is the added advantage of off-road parking space within the freehold to accommodate a vehicle (or two smaller vehicles). In addition to use as a waterside home, the property would also lend itself nicely to use as a holiday home, Cornish riverside retreat or as a holiday letting investment opportunity. Finally, there will be no onward chain and the contents of the property can be available by separate negotiation.

The compact accommodation is entered through a small lobby into the galley kitchen, which has a plumbed space for a washing machine and a freestanding electric cooker. The kitchen leads into the reception room, which overlooks the river, has patio doors out to the decking and a useful mezzanine storage area overhead. Along the inner hall are the two bedrooms and the sizeable shower room, which features a large, walk-in shower enclosure fitted with an electric shower. The main bedroom has a door out to the decking and is served by another overhead mezzanine storage area. From here once can also enjoy waking up to a view of the water every morning.

The rear decking contains a useful covered storage area and a metal tool shed, and extends right up to the riverbank, providing a beautiful outlook and direct access to the water or a boat kept thereupon. Facing southwest, it is relatively warm and sheltered at all but the coldest times of year, and a very hot and sunny space during the summer.

This property should naturally appeal to those with an interest in sailing and other waterborne pursuits. Moorings (including deep water) are available immediately nearby and further afield through several sources, including Calstock boatyard which is less than half a mile downriver. Our client pulls his 4'6-draft boat (pictured - not included in the sale) up alongside the decking and allows her to rest on the soft mud bottom during low tide. As a parishioner within Calstock, the owner of this property has a right to lay their own mooring, should they so wish. Additionally, Calstock benefits from a public pontoon and slipway within 50 yards of the property, providing flexibility for those keeping a boat on the water. Some of the photos on our advert have been supplied by the vendor.

Mains water, electricity and drainage. Night storage heaters and a log-burner (which we understand was fitted by our client). Please note that the agents have neither inspected nor tested these services.
