The Rigging (Fowey)
The Rigging is a real gem set within the heart of the picturesque village of Fowey. This traditional cottage and it's gardens have been redesigned to take full advantage of it's position right above the Fowey estuary, giving you the most beautiful waterside views. These estuary views become even more breathtaking as you venture out onto it's decked terraced gardens, which provide a private yet spacious outdoor area for relaxing and watching the world float by.
As you enter The Rigging you will find a twin bedroom on the ground floor. Stairs lead up to the first floor where two double bedrooms can be found, both with lovely estuary views. On this floor there is also a wet room with electric power shower, and a family bathroom with a shower over bath, WC and basin. Two steps then lead you to a quirky cabin style bedroom featuring it's very own porthole window and a small double bed which is accessed via bunk ladder style steps. This room would be perfect for a child over 8 years of age or teenager in search of their own little retreat!
Stairs lead to the second floor where the you will find the living area. Open plan in style, this sociable layout consists of a well equipped kitchen with central island, spacious lounge area with comfy seating and large dining table. Large picture windows span the full width of this light and airy room giving you magnificent views of the river whether you're cooking, dining or relaxing in front of the cosy woodburner.
The rear enclosed gardens* are accessed from the kitchen via steps and spread over 4 levels of terraced decking. Here is where outdoor living takes on a new meaning. The large first deck boasts uninterupted views of the Fowey estuary, seating for six around a good sized patio table, deck chairs and a summer house. A few more steps lead to the second deck where you will find the BBQ, and further steps lead up to another two terraces where the views just get even better...Perfect for either your morning coffee or sundowner!
