This is an exceptional village house, located in a private position at the top of this riverside village. The house has been extended and renovated to create a large modern 'New England' style home, that has magnificent views of the estuary.
The house is approached up its own drive into a large parking area, where there is a new triple garage. There is also an integral garage below the house. The main garden is to the side of the house, and there is a large wooden deck with glass balustrading overlooking the village's inner harbour and the estuary.
A particular feature of the house is the large, vaulted sitting room with huge bifold doors that open out onto a balcony. This room opens into the kitchen dining room and the study. The master bedroom is spacious with French doors opening onto its own balcony. There is a dressing area fitted with Hammond wardrobes and an ensuite bath/shower room. A spiral staircase leads upto a mezzanine overlooking the estuary.
The house is newly decorated and carpeted and a large triple garage with electric doors has recently been built. Although the house is tucked away at the top of the village, it is a short walk to the harbour where there is easy access onto the water, riverside walks and the village pub.

From Fowey, follow the road heading towards Lostwithiel. After a few miles turn right signposted Golant. Follow the road down into Golant turning right at the crossroads. Take the second right turning into Downs Hill and the property is on the right as you go up the hill. You will see the house name as you go up the driveway.
