Country houses for sale

Sailors’ Cornish idyll

Cornish agents Lilicrap Chilcott have just reduced the asking price on this property with views of the Helford River from £900,000 to £825,000.

The four-bedroom house was originally built as a bungalow in the 1970s but has been modernised and extended over the years, the most recent refitting and redecoration was carried out between 2005 and 2006.

It’s 3.5 miles from the village of Helford and 29 from Truro and has far-reaching views over Gillan Creek, surrounding countryside towards the Helford river and beyond, including Falmouth Bay, St Mawes and St Anthony lighthouse together with miles of open sea.

Gillan Creek is a very pretty inlet on the southern side of the Helford estuary, with the Helford river and its creeks being of obvious interest to sailing enthusiasts, with the famous sailing waters ideal for yachting, power boating and dinghy sailing. The Fal estuary and Falmouth Bay are also both within easy reach by water.
