This interesting and attractive red brick building was originally built as a place of worship for the Roman Catholic community in Fowey and was converted into residential accommodation about 20 years ago.
With 'reversed' accommodation, the property incorporates a superb first floor open-plan living area with a high, sloping, ceiling.
There are three bedrooms an en-suite wet room and shower room on the ground floor.
This end of the town incorporates the Caffa Mill car and dinghy park, the Bodinnick Ferry landing slip and an access point to the river, for boat launching, (by arrangement with the Harbour Office).
The property is situated only a ten minute stroll into the center of town but has the great advantage of being accessible from the 'back road' (Passage Lane) thereby avoiding the town center traffic. The house offers good quality accommodation and is an ideal choice particularly for families.

About this location
The Cornwall region
Cornwalls Premier Estuary Town.
The town of Fowey has a unique, unspoilt and ancient charm which holds a special fascination for visitors of all ages. Old cottages, narrow winding streets with glimpses of the river below, cobbled walkways perfumed with flowers from hanging baskets and window boxes and the quays bustling with life, all help to create a unique atmosphere.
There is also a good selection of quality restaurants, cafes, pubs and shops to be found. The town has strong connections with the world famous authoress Daphne Du Maurier who spent most of her life living quietly in the area, first in Bodinnick and then near Polkerris. An annual literary festival in May, attracting nationally known figures, is held in her name. The well known author, poet, literary critic and anthologist Sir Arthur Quiller Couch (1863 - 1944), who was appointed professor of English Literature at Cambridge University, lived for many years on the Esplanade in Fowey and participated fully in local life becoming both Mayor of the town and Commodore of the Royal Fowey Yacht Club.
Much of the land around Fowey is owned by the National Trust with many delightful walks both in the countryside and along the coast. A haven for flora and fauna, this area has long been popular with naturalists, painters and walkers, particularly during the gentle spring and autumn weather so common here in Cornwall.
