One of Fowey’s finest period waterside houses, Dolphin House is a beautiful Grade II-listed Georgian townhouse with elegant accommodation, superb harbour views and direct water access.
One of a short terrace of fine Georgian houses, the four-bedroom property offers spacious accommodation in a very convenient location in the heart of the town. Facing south east, the property enjoys outstanding views over the harbour and out to sea. Grade II-listed, the property has accommodation arranged over three floors and incorporates many period features including a staircase, panelled doors and sash windows.
Currently Dolphin House is configured as a three-bedroom house with a second sitting room on the first floor which could be used as a fourth bedroom.
The attractive hallway with wooden floor and original staircase leads to the well appointed, bespoke Landmark kitchen, with gas AGA and tiled floor. A charming sitting room with wood burner has coving to the ceiling and ceiling rose befitting the era of the property.
The bedrooms on the first and second floor are spacious with fabulous views to the water or to the town, taking in Place House. The bathrooms are refurbished to an excellent standard offering high quality fixtures and fittings.
Outside, there is a paved terrace on the waterfront, with a landing platform and steps leading down to the water. A solid timber door give access to the town quay if required. The present owner has the benefit of a frape mooring which is held on an annual licence from Fowey Harbour Commissioners.
To the rear of the property there is a wet room and useful utility room housed in a single storey building.
There is also an allocated parking space set within a covered garage location approximately 300 metres from the house.
Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate this superb waterside property.
