The property

Tucked on the water's edge in the heart of Turnchapel, a detached cottage dating from 1755, once a pilot boat house and now beautifully refurbished with nautical features and outstanding and ever-changing views across bustling Plymouth harbour to the city from almost every room.

To one side, a level lawn and very steep, narrow access (7'3" narrowest point) to parking area.

To the front, a private decked area on the water (table/chairs, barbecue), wonderful for alfresco meals.

Steps down to pontoon and private shingle foreshore.

Crabbing from the garden and nearby slipway at low tide. Step from decked area through French windows to kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, gas hob/oven).

From the kitchen, hall to double bedroom (5' bed) with doors to decking, views and en suite shower-room (suite).

Bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

Snug (TV, double futon), suitable for children to play in.

Stairs from dining area up to living room with TV, Netflix, beams to apex, 19th century warship's burner (open fire) and sliding doors to balcony with elevated view of the water.

Two more bedrooms - a double with sliding doors to private balcony overlooking the water, and a small twin (limited clothes-storage space) with original ship's cabin beds; smart shower-room (suite).Two well behaved dogs welcome.

Wireless music system in most rooms.

A stunning, contemporary home where you can watch boats sailing past and fall asleep to the lapping waves. Turnchapel: historic fishing village (two good food pubs, gym/squash courts/pool, watersports) by the water, where the River Plym meets Plymouth Sound, with little ferries to Plymouth (theatre, cinema, restaurants, art deco lido, ferries to Cornwall) and South Hams beaches (plenty within 15 miles).

Mount Batten peninsula (watersports, marina), ½ mile.

Golf (spectacular views), 1½ miles.

Bovisand (sandy beach), 2½ miles.
