The Light House is a stunning, stylish detached property, with five bedrooms and a high specification, bespoke design. The property is set in an elevated position in the picturesque Cornish fishing village of Polruan, enjoying outstanding views across the village and the River Fowey towards Fowey town.
The property is fitted to a very high standard, and benefits from a number of modern additions and innovations, including underfloor heating throughout, electric roof windows, an air-source heat pump, a whole house ventilation system, a rainwater harvest system and a 4k watt photovoltaic system, which help to make it extremely energy efficient. The design also combines a bespoke glass stair case with recessed LED lighting, oak doors and sleek floor tiles throughout, creating a light, clean, modern environment.
The accommodation is arranged over three storeys, with the main open-plan living accommodation found on the ground floor. The spacious sitting room and dining room benefits from dual bi-fold doors, which opens the entire end wall of the room onto a balcony, to welcome those magnificent views across the Fowey estuary. The kitchen is fitted with contemporary units and integrated appliances, including a Zip tap, while on the lower ground floor, there is a useful utility room.
There are three bedrooms located on the first floor, with one bedroom en suite on the ground floor, and a further bedroom and en suite shower room, currently used as an office, on the lower ground floor. The master bedroom has skylights overhead and bi-fold doors onto a balcony overlooking the estuary, plus a dressing room and a luxury en suite shower room. The two further bedrooms are both doubles, while there is also an additional family shower room.
The property is accessed via remote-controlled security gates, with a paved driveway leading to the house, and the double garage, which is integrated into the lower ground floor. The beautiful gardens are arranged over three levels, with Mediterranean planting throughout, sunny west-facing terraced areas, a sauna and hot tub. The gardens are a wonderful spot to sit, relax and enjoy the breath-taking views across the estuary, to the rolling Cornwall hills beyond.
