'Tidal Waters' boasts a truly delightful location nestling just above the tidal creek at Penpol, which is a tributary of the River Fowey between the parishes of St Veep and Lanteglos. This peaceful hamlet lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the creek is part of a County Wildlife Site which is bustling with nature. Kingfishers, otters and owls are regularly seen and heard. The picturesque village of Lerryn lies two miles west of Penpol, a vibrant community offering a range of everyday facilities including a primary school, general store/sub post office, village hall and a public house called the 'Ship Inn'. There are superb walking trails along the river banks leading into woods owned by the National Trust on one side and private woodland on the other. A little further to the north-west lies the thriving community town of Lostwithiel, providing a wide range of independent shops, GP surgery, dentist, pubs, restaurants and other amenities. Approximately three miles away (Via the Bodinnick Ferry) is the well known harbour town of Fowey. The South West coast path and various National Trust beaches at Lantic Bay, Lansallos and Palace Cove (Lantivet Bay) all fall within a relatively short drive of this location.

The property is approached to the front through a vehicular gate, opening onto a spacious parking area with room for several vehicles. An electric vehicle charging point is also located on the front elevation. A prominent feature of this unique waterside property are the delightful private gardens and glorious uninterrupted views of Penpol Creek. With direct access onto the water and the benefit of a private mooring this is undoubtedly a rare opportunity for boating enthusiasts and alike. Located to the side of the property is a large open fronted shelter with an old corrugated sloping roof which is currently used for storage purposes. There is also a potting shed in the corner of the garden next to the main entrance and is accessed from a sitting out area which is laid with stone chippings.
We understand that the bungalow is suitable for cash buyers only due to the non-traditional construction, however the current vendor advises that the roof and floor have been insulated as part of the modernisation work that has been carried out in more recent times.
