Originally an attractive Edwardian double-fronted villa on Mylor Creek, Cartreff has been extensively restored making the most of the spacious accommodation, and adding a fabulous glass-fronted verandah off the master bedroom.

The large kitchen/dining room is a wonderful family space, while the two reception rooms have oak floors and beamed ceilings – there is also a secondary staircase to the master bedroom suite in the property. Of the five bedrooms upstairs, two are en-suite and there is a further family bathroom.

The property has sizeable mature gardens which have been beautifully landscaped to include sunken terraces, Cornish stone walling and a sunken part-decked patio which makes a perfect barbecue spot just yards from the creekside, with fantastic views.

The house is situated on Church Road, a quiet no-through road between the village of Mylor Bridge and Mylor Yacht Harbour. The village has good local schools and a well-loved public house and a creekside cricket field; the harbour has been much improved in recent years and now, for many, represents the finest facility for boating and yachting enthusiasts in Cornwall.

Falmouth is around three miles to the south and Truro is ten miles to the north while there are daily flights to London from Newquay airport.

The guide price is £1,150,000. For further information please contact Savills on 01872 243200 or visit www.savills.co.uk.
