The property is very flexible in its use and could be further altered: for instance, the current master bedroom could be used as a reception room and there is potential for an extension beyond the ensuite to create a whole new area, subject to the necessary consents.

The gardens are set out to the rear, and sweep down from the sun terrace to the water’s edge over a gently sloping lawn. On either side are attractive borders made up with many specimen shrubs. In prime position is a lovely decked area which is perfect for soaking up the sun whilst admiring the spectacular views up and down the creek. Steps lead down to the foreshore, which is ideal for boating enthusiasts.

Grey Roofs is located in the stunning area between Falmouth and Truro, encompassing Mylor, Feock and Restronguet, which is renowned for its outstanding sailing waters and wonderful views. Truro is approximately five miles away, whilst the colourful harbour town of Falmouth is 10 miles. The position over the calm tidal creek and rolling countryside beyond is a boatowners’ paradise and provides an ideal hideaway for a tranquil home or holiday.

The guide price is £995,000. For further information please contact Savills on 01872 243 200 or visit
