Once a former Dairy built by the owners Great Grandfather in 1926, Mellingey has been at the heart of the local community for generations.
Today this wonderful family home has been brought bang up to date with a sensitive conversion and impressive style to evoke the relaxing ambience and coastal nuances of the nearby river and nautical setting. Upon arrival the driveway sweeps up to the elevated and secluded position that offers panoramic views of Lostwithiel, the upper reaches of the river Fowey and surrounding countryside.
The house is reverse level in style to maximise the rural views with a wonderful open plan living, dining and kitchen space.
The kitchen offers all you need for holiday cooking with the contemporary breakfast bar offering a central hub for cooking chat or early children’s suppers. The dining table is set under the bay window with attractive garden and valley views.
The versatile living room is as perfect for cosy fireside evenings as for pre-dinner drinks and lazy afternoons. Soak up the natural daylight from the double aspect windows and enjoy the fresh colour palette of whites and maritime blues.
The first floor also offers a large family shower room and 2 beautiful double bedrooms. A central oak & glass staircase leads down from the living room to the lower level; providing a spacious master bedroom and further double room, both rooms are ensuite.
Step out onto the south facing terrace to the front of the house and enjoy the panoramic and lush green setting with the River Fowey and valley views below.
Mellingey offers a wonderful and secluded terraced garden set in over an acre of land with layers of level lawn for children and dogs to play and pathways leading to quiet benches high above the house for jackpot views. The garden brims with colour throughout the year from the apple tree blossom to the copper beech.
The historic town of Lostwithiel is just a couple of minutes walk away and lies on the banks of the picturesque River Fowey. Stroll down from your holiday home to the gently flowing river and tranquil ambience. River bank walks offer level access and tempting picnic spots, along with a lovely riverside dog friendly park.
This charming town has so much to offer and has become a mecca for antique hunters with many shops packed full of Cornish treasures. If dining out is on the agenda then choose from a number of artisan cafes, a cool deli and stylish restaurants or local pubs.
The ancient and historic 13th century Restormel Castle twice visited by the black prince is our neighbour just a short walk up the river valley and well worth a visit for its historic importance to the area.
With its central location within South Cornwall, set out for day trips and discover the rural and coastal charm, including some of the top gardens in the country.
