Cornwall LivingIssue #120

Riverbank splendour

An imaginatively designed, new-build home realised dreams of Cornish creekside living.

There are times when there are not enough superlatives in the dictionary to put into words how breathtaking a property is, and Creek View, Devoran, which was recently sold by Shore Partnership at a guide price of £1,300,000, is a case in point. The village of Devoran is a hugely desirable location, having an enviable position on the banks of the Restronguet Creek, being only a six-mile drive to Cornwall’s cathedral city of Truro and within easy access of both the north and south Cornish coasts.

Completed in 2021, this grand design took its inspiration from the iconic boat houses of old combined with modern finishes and contemporary styling. Its toes-in-the-water position is maximised with garden terraces giving direct water access, perfect for paddle boards and kayak adventures. A sunken hot tub in the upper deck and external hot water shower are evidence that this property was designed with outdoor living in mind as much as indoor – and who wouldn’t with such an idyllic location?

In fact, the outdoors are also embraced by the interior design with a wall of impressive floor-to-ceiling windows on both the ground and second floors, offering panoramic, picture-postcard views of the river and the lush green countryside beyond. The open-plan living area, with high-quality kitchen and vast three-metre, granite-topped breakfast bar create a luxury living space, while the four bedrooms are havens of calm in which to retreat. A highlight is the sensational master suite with vaulted ceiling, dressing room, en-suite bathroom and private balcony affording breathtaking views across the river.

Security comes in the form of a fully integrated phone-controlled security system and Nest camera doorbell, so there is the opportunity to lock up and leave this incredible property with total peace of mind. It’s rare that such a unique riverside property as this comes to market in Devoran, and so it was no surprise that Creek View was purchased very quickly. In light of this, and whether you are looking to purchase your dream Cornish home or to sell your current one, Shore Partnership’s expertise in selling desirable homes in desirable places could be your route to success.
