  • Bedrooms: 5
Set in around 2.55 acres of the most glorious gardens extending down towards the creek, an amazing opportunity to take ownership of the impressive Inow House, a brick built detached residence from circa 1928, providing spacious five double bedrooms, two large separate reception rooms, substantial sized kitchen with pantry, ground floor cloakroom, two first floor bath/shower rooms and the unusual addition of a former bomb shelter - a great potential wine cellar. In addition to the main house is a separate 'Lodge' which, subject to planning permission could provide additional living accommodation. The property has both mains and private water supplies with the well house and water tank located to top of the garden. The property has the most wonderful gardens - a worthy rival to those of Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens. For those looking to purchase in this idyllic location viewing is an absolute must. The property is offered for sale chain free and is a perfect renovation opportunity not to be missed.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS

The gardens of Inow House are truly something to be in ore of. Offering complete privacy, seclusion and tranquillity it is a haven for any novice or experienced gardener.

Set within 2.55 acres, these mature well stocked gardens with their gently sloping lawns create a vision of colour with such plants and shrubs as Camellias, Azaleas, Magnolias and a vast array of both local and imported exotics as well as superb bamboo walkway.

Winding hidden paths allow you to meander down through the gardens discovering small woodlands, stone steps and an impressive granite bird bath, perfect for attracting the local wildlife.

A further flight of stone steps located at the bottom of the garden give pedestrian access down into the centre of the village of Port Navas.

Towards the rear of Inow House nestled in between the trees sits an interesting water tower beside a fully functional well with its own housing. The property also provides ample hard standing for a large greenhouse and a further small greenhouse on an upper level. All in all a most impressive display.
