Described as ‘one of the finest British post-war architects’, John Crowther designed the iconic Restronguet Point in Feock, Cornwall in the late 1960s. Even today, it still looks as cutting edge as anything else in the area or indeed, on the market. Not a bad location either.
The idea with this property was to take full advantage of those stunning views, with Crowther using glass extensively for panoramic views of the area, which is close to the village of Feock and five miles south of Truro. The Point is also designated an AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) – you can see why if you check out the full set of images on the agent’s site.
Enter the glazed front door to the first floor and you’ll find an entrance hall with two sets of fully glazed double doors opening into both the sitting room and dining room, both of which have full width windows for the views. The ground floor is accessed either from a spiral staircase or via its own separate external entrance. You’ll find a ‘good sized’ hallway, utility room, master bedroom with en-suite and dressing room, plus three more bedrooms, each with an en-suite.
The lower ground is the original boathouse, but is now a ‘studio annexe’. Outside is 1.25 acres of landscaped gardens. a gravelled terrace with raised beds and the use of two deep water moorings, should you have boats.
The line ‘should you have boats’ might give an indication of price. It isn’t cheap. In fact it’s £3,000,000. So a Lotto win or working very hard is the answer, should you want it.
