This attractive cottage is deceptive in size, having been extended. The accommodation is far larger than one might imagine from initial impressions. Extended to the rear and side and with an added conservatory, this is a house ideal for entertaining and accommodating a large family. The grounds are deceptive as well, with a large garden behind the house having riverside views over the top of the property.
The original entrance porch opens into a sitting room which would have originally been the entire ground floor. A pair of windows look out to the front whilst bookshelves at one end flank a chimney breast which has been closed off to create a feature display. A door leads out to a large conservatory which overlooks the side garden whose stone wall gives some privacy.
To the rear of the house an impressive double height extension has created a large eat in kitchen. Floor to ceiling glazing ensures ample light despite its position to the rear of the house. The kitchen is well equipped with a range of matching light oak cabinetry with a granite countertop which house Neff appliances including a double oven & dishwasher an AEG hob as well as an under-counter fridge. To the side of the kitchen an inner hall gives access to a second entrance, and a large utility room with adjoining cloak room. From here, one can access the very large garage which has room for a number of cars or, more likely given the house location on the pier, a boat and/or kayak and the various associated paraphernalia!
Stairs lead up to a gallery overlooking the kitchen which in turn leads to the master bedroom with en-suite. Well fitted with contemporary fixtures, the en-suite also features an attractive 'porthole' window. The master bedroom has a pair of windows offering views over the river.
The extension to the side of the house which includes the garage, has two additional double bedrooms above, both of which have triangular dormer windows again with river views as well as a family bathroom.
This is a generous house in an enviable position on the Quay at St. Germans. Superb views are offered throughout the house and from the grounds.
To the side of the house is a level lawned garden with a stone wall giving some privacy. South facing with a patio just outside the kitchen, this is a delightful place to dine al-fresco. Stairs to the rear of the house lead up two stories, to a large, predominantly level garden which has a selection of fruit trees, a vegetable garden and a summer house/shed with some lovely views of the river and viaduct.
St Germans officially became a market town around 1600. However, the Domesday Book states that there was a Sun market in 1086. The beautiful village of St Germans is located on the River Tiddy, part of the beautiful estuary of the Lynher which joins the River Tamar close to Saltash. St Germans Quay was busy in the last century with cargoes of minerals, coal, timber and limestone.
St. Germans offers pretty countrywide walks and delightful views along the river and is a haven for those keen sailors. The village offers the usual shops, cafés and restaurants along with a Primary School, Doctors Surgery and Church and is within easy striking distance of the city of Plymouth, for those seeking more sophisticated entertainment and shopping facilities. St. Germans is also home to the picturesque Port Eliot Estate with beautiful gardens, which has been used for many events over the years.
