Step Inside

This Victorian semi-detached townhouse lies in the picture perfect maritime port of Fowey, guests will enjoy the luxury of the location with the cosmopolitan collection of cafes and restaurants just a short walk away. Admiral House comes from the heart of its owners and has been lovingly renovated as a family home ensuring the open plan layout complements the comings and goings of holiday life. Arrive to the generous kitchen space, a real hub to the house with large central island and relaxed seating area with kitchen table seating 8 guests perfect for children's early suppers or a quiet morning coffee as the house comes to life for the day. The envy of any budding chef, the stylish country kitchen comes with a contemporary twist from the state of the art range cooker to the instant boiling water taps. Whether whipping up a light lunch or a gourmet seafood feast fresh off the boat, this spacious kitchen encourages culinary inspiration. Just off the kitchen the cool bar area evokes the vintage styling and unique lofty space of New York apartment living with full sized pool table, flatscreen TV and bespoke bar area with wine and drinks fridge. Set to impress, the dining room of Admiral House is truly beautiful. The dining table can seat up to 14-16 guests with thoughtfully chosen furniture. French doors lead onto the terrace to create the perfect coastal dining experience. The homely living room mirrors the relaxed country style creating a calm ambience in which to relax and unwind away from the bustle of the house. Children and adults alike will adore the cinema room created within the cellar, a wonderful space to sit back and enjoy a favourite film. The central staircase leads to the first floor where a romantic collection of 3 super king bedrooms and a single bedded room combine a soft colour palette with luxury linens and the highest quality Kensington 3000 Health beds. A further 3 bedrooms (super king zip and link) can be found on the 2nd floor with private bathroom. No less considered the recently renovated bathrooms bring a Georgian twist amidst the luxurious rain showers and claw foot baths. Located to the rear of Admiral's House is the self-contained 'Nest', a serene super king (zip and link) bedded annex with ensuite bathroom. This self contained annex is perfect for family au pairs or those looking for accommodation away from the hubbub of the house.

On Your Doorstep

To the front of the house is a beautiful elevated terrace which captures the sea views from the mouth of the River Fowey leading down to the quieter sheltered waters of the harbour and maritime life below. This spacious terrace garden brims with colour from the Mediterranean style planted pots. Choose to dine al fresco at the over sized Kettler steel dining table with chairs, watch the world sail by simply relaxing upon a sun lounger with a favourite book. A thoughtfully placed hot tub invites an indulgent afternoon or welcome soak after a day at sea. Steps lead down from the terrace to the quiet private road below, from here a further flight of steps leads down onto the Esplanade and into the town. Just off the kitchen, doors lead to a private courtyard area beautifully planted with Bay Tree topiary and pot plants. Whether it is home from home or its your first visit, Fowey is set to impress. Influenced by it's vibrant maritime community, the picture perfect streets combine traditional chandleries and yacht clubs with chic cafes, stylish restaurants and artisan shops. A number of coastal and woodland walks lead from the house taking up and over the headland for a jackpot view of the harbour or more inland admist the inlets and creeks. Hardy sailors will enjoy the beautiful sailing waters of St Austell Bay or for a family day on the river then enjoy a lazy cruise up river with a Cornish picnic. Not to be missed, the Royal Fowey Regatta commences in mid August and attracts sailors the world over - the Red Arrows air display team quite literally fly past your elevated decking for your very own jackpot view.
