SITUATION

Torpoint has a good commercial centre with a small but busy town including a variety of local stores from small supermarkets to general store hardware shops, butchers and of course necessities such as petrol stations, health centres etc. There is a primary school within short walking distance. and a thriving community school providing education for children through to A level. As you would expect with this sized town there are sailing facilities and clubs in the area as well as golfing at Whitsand Bay which is approximately 7 miles away. Also within a short distance is the National Trust property- Antony House as well as the country park at Mount Edgecumbe with both of these providing fine grounds for walking. There is also the splendid coastline of Whitsand Bay with sandy beaches and lovely cliff top walks - the proximity of these making this a most enjoyable and desirable area to live in.

FULL SUMMARY

This individual detached house was built by the current owners in 1983 to their specifications and this is the first time the property has been on the open market. The property enjoys an elevated outlook across the river Tamar and is set within well-maintained large gardens with a private drive offering off-road parking and leading to a double garage with sauna. The gardens are mainly level around to the front with tiered gardens to the rear leading down to a quarterdeck enjoying an exclusive and private spot on the river's edge. River View enjoys a splendid position in a hidden-away location but still just a short distance and walk into the town centre. There are but a few properties that have such excellent views, yet are so convenient to the town's amenities - therefore this is a rare opportunity that cannot be missed.
