2 Market Street is a lovingly restored, circa early 19th Century House in the highly sought after village of Devoran.
The historic former sea port of Devoran is located on Restronguet Creek, a tributary of Carrick Roads - an estuary of the River Fal, famous for its sailing waters and superb waterside pubs. Originally famous for fish, tin and copper exporting (of course!), Devoran' is said to be derived from the Cornish language to mean the meeting or trickling waters'.
The village today plays host to a welcoming community and boasts a thriving primary school, an excellent pub and offers easy access to Truro and Falmouth (approximately 5 and 7 miles distant respectively).
The property itself is located at the top of Market Street, on the junction with St Johns Terrace. Beautifully presented throughout with excellent attention to detail, the house is spacious yet warm and cosy making for an ideal family home. The property has been recently restored and benefits from improved fabric, such as internal wall insulation and a converted roof space which now provides a superb master bedroom and en-suite. Overall there are 5 bedrooms, all of a good size. The downstairs living accommodation comprises of 2 reception rooms which are separated by double doors allowing the space to opened up as one or to be kept separate as two unique spaces. Period features abound and perhaps particularly popular will be the feature parquet flooring found throughout the two reception rooms. The kitchen is located to the rear of the building and is spacious enough to function as an informal dining area - double glass doors open onto the paved area to the side allowing plenty of light. Beyond the kitchen is a useful utility room which also boasts a downstairs W.C. complete with shower for hosing the kids or dogs off after a visit to the creek.
The property benefits from a modern gas combination central heating system, complete with some period style radiators and underfloor heating in the kitchen. For cosy winter evenings there is an original cast iron open fire place in the living room.
Externally there is a private garden complete with a large timber built outbuilding (which has permission granted for development into a summerhouse). Ample on street parking. Short walk to an excellent pub (The Old Quay Inn) and the creek.
Locally you are spoilt for choice. Perhaps you will kayak to the famous Pandora Inn, cycle to Portreath on the old Tramway, or take a short drive to Trellisick House and stroll around the parklands of this nearby National Trust property.
If you're looking for a spacious, stylish home with bags of period charm, in a waterside village location with excellent transport links to the rest of the County then this property should be high on your list.
