Property of the Day: Restronguet Point, Feock, Cornwall
THE PROPERTY: Offering superb views across the Carrick Roads and Restronguet Creek, this detached house, built in 1955 and continually improved over the years, is one of Cornwall’s finest waterfront homes.
THE LOCATION: With its exceptional position on the south-eastern side of Restronguet Point, a peninsula between the Fal Estuary and Restronguet Creek, The Beeches overlooks Mylor Yacht Harbour, Loe Beach and, in the distance, St Anthony Lighthouse and Falmouth Bay. There are excellent sailing opportunities in the Carrick Roads (Ben Ainslie famously learnt to sail on the waters in front of Restronguet Point) and both Truro and Falmouth are a short drive away.
THE INTERIOR: Spread across four storeys, the accommodation includes a triple-aspect drawing-room, a dining-room, a fitted kitchen and a conservatory on the ground level, a triple-aspect library on the first floor and five bedroom suites. There is also an entertainment room with a cinema and a gymnasiium with bi-fold doors leading out into the garden.
WHY WE LOVE IT: Marine enthusiasts will love The Beeches’ proximity to the waters: there is a large area of lawn descending down into the Carrick Roads and a long slipway running directly into the water. The gardens are also lovely in their own right, with numerous trees, camellias, a lily pond and a decked terrace with a 12-person hot tub.
