Why You'll Like It
Nestled on a quiet no through road in the pretty enclave of Trolver Croft lies Pengarth, a very special home with waterside views. With almost every room having access to a balcony, this sublime creekside residence will suit those who want to enjoy the ever changing view of the river in a contemporary and thoughtfully designed home.
Whether you fancy an early morning paddle board or nipping to the famous thatched Pandora Inn by boat, it's hard to imagine living in a more charming location.
The ideal spot for enjoying outdoor pursuits, an abundance of walks, footpaths and bridleways are on hand, as is the start of the coast to coast cycle path known as the Bissoe Trail - a former mineral tramway which is now a mostly off road route linking the south coast at Devoran to the north Cornish coast at Portreath. The Quay Inn at Devoran offers a warm welcome with traditional pub food and local ales, and the local gig club meets regularly to race and train all year round. Families will find a great choice of primary, secondary and independent schools within a short distance.
During the summer months, the owners welcome family and friends, accommodated easily and luxuriously in the house. Sitting in the sunshine is definitely a favourite pastime, and the outdoor space lends itself to al fresco dining and barbeques. Bird watchers will be delighted by the myriad of wading birds and Egrets easily spotted from the house, and the Curlews have a lovely soothing call in the evenings. The nights here are pretty special too. Urbanites will particularly appreciate some star watching, with so little light pollution.
A superb specification
The owners of this property have hand picked every element with great thought and care, from flooring to the kitchen fittings and premium quality bathrooms. The en-suite bathroom for the master bedroom suite even has an integrated TV to enjoy watching whilst relaxing in the jacuzzi bath. From oak flooring to the bespoke main staircase, luxurious touches are found throughout.
One bedroom suite has the advantage of being accessible, with ground floor access and a wet room.
The lower level of the property has a fabulous room spanning the breadth of the house it has doors to a sun terrace overlooking the river and an en-suite shower room. This are could have many uses and would particularly suit those wishing to work from home or with dependent relatives. What will strike you as you view the house is that it is naturally light and bright thanks to large windows and the use of Velux style roof windows.
