Helford Point House is a modern country property on an exclusive peninsula beside the Helford River in Cornwall. Offering exceptional water views from both the house and the garden, the house provides a huge range of very fine entertaining spaces.

One of only a handful of houses fronting the south side of the beautiful Helford River estuary, this property was built in the 1990s, and has proved to be a successful holiday house for the current owners for many years.

Inside, the ground floor has been designed around the views: a superb living room has dual aspect windows and doors which open into the slate terrace, as does the dining room, which leads back to the kitchen, which itself is very well equipped for those keen on cooking. A further reception room offers plenty of space for relaxation and could

make an excellent playroom.

Upstairs, the master bedroom suite on the

first floor has a private balcony, and three further bedrooms include

another en-suite, while a family bathroom also sits on this level.

The gardens and terrace are wonderful spots for entertaining, while steps lead down through the garden to a lawn just above the water’s edge. Further steps offer access to a sheltered beach while a mooring can be accessed via the small quay below the property.

The Helford River is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled rivers in Cornwall, and Helford village itself has a local shop and a pub, while the market town of Helston lies around ten miles away.

The guide price is £1.35m. For further information please contact Savills on 01872 243 200 or visit www.savills.co.uk.
