WILCOVE WATERFRONT 20 YARDS, TORPOINT 1.5 MILES, PLYMOUTH 4 MILES, WHITSAND BAY 4 MILES SWALLOWS AND AMAZONS - Overlooking Wilcove Creek, an enchanting detached cottage in need of some improvement and set within 0.30 acre of established private gardens - a rare opportunity in one of Cornwall's most coveted Creekside villages.

LOCATION For the keen yachtsman this property is ideally positioned almost adjacent to and overlooking the idyllic waters of Wilcove Creek which provides direct access to the sheltered sailing waters of the Rivers Tamar and Lynher. The Tamar is navigable for some 12 miles upstream and the open waters of Plymouth Sound and the English Channel are 3 miles to the south by boat.



The riverside village of Wilcove lies close to the southern edge of the Tamar Valley AONB on the west bank of the River Tamar, about a mile north of Torpoint on the Rame Peninsula. The scenery around the village is fascinating, centred around the tidal creek and an old green lane connects the village with the National Trusts' Antony House Estate.



The town of Torpoint has a full range of facilities including shops, health centre, schools and deep water moorings. Notable beauty spots include the wide expanse and sandy beaches at Whitsand Bay, the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Mount Edgcumbe Country Park.



The City of Plymouth has a large and thriving university, together with a long and historic waterfront with many cafes, restaurants, art galleries and antique shops centred around the waterside areas of the cobbled Barbican quayside and Hoe. There is also a mainline railway station (Plymouth to London Paddington 3 hours, fastest journey) together with a cross channel ferryport providing regular services to France and Spain.

DESCRIPTION As Kenneth Grahame wrote in The Wind in the Willows - "Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."



Rooks Cottage is both a sailor and nature lovers paradise, comprising a detached village cottage in a dreamy Creekside setting. The property is in need of some improvement and benefits from full double glazing and Solar PV.



Properties of this nature rarely become available and Rooks Cottage represents a unique opportunity to acquire a waterside home with immense potential.



The accommodation extends to about 1164 sq ft and has an interesting layout which a new owner would probably seek to reconfigure to suit their individual family requirements. The kitchen on the first floor enjoys direct garden access and there is the potential to provide up to four bedrooms.

OUTSIDE The property is approached over a long and level private drive (with right of way over in favour of one neighbour) and leading to the large garage/workshop. A gate opens into the garden providing the opportunity for additional parking. There are various garden sheds/workshops which in dilapidated condition.



The beautiful established gardens are predominantly laid to lawn interspersed with flower beds, colourful shrubs and various mature trees including some fruit trees. The gardens have fabulous views over Wilcove Creek. There are also various outbuildings in need of refurbishment. A further gate from the garden leads to a quaint footpath with a 20 yard walk down to the waters edge.
