Creekside contemporary

A combination of modern design and an enviable location made for a dream waterside home.


Creek View was recently sold by Shore Partnership at a guide price of £1.3 million and is an example of the extremely high level of luxury property that is coming to the market in Cornwall. Situated on the banks of Restronguet Creek, close to the hugely desirable village of Devoran, this property was ideally positioned for those wanting a riverside dwelling while still being within easy reach of Cornwall’s cathedral city of Truro, as well as the Duchy’s north and south coasts.

Completed in 2020, the architectural design for Creek View took inspiration from iconic boat houses, the like of which would be found on the most sought-after banks of the Thames, bringing a taste of home counties-chic to a Cornish creekside. Modern finishes and contemporary styling define the accommodation, its toes-in-the-water position cementing it as a property of distinction and one that enriches the local landscape.


Landscaped garden terraces dip down to the water, giving direct access for river days out – one could just imagine a slipper launch moored on the quay below. Designed very much with outdoor living in mind, a sunken hot tub was installed on the upper deck along with an external hot water shower – with such an impressive location these elements ensured maximum enjoyment. The outdoors was also invited in with a wall of expansive floor-to-ceiling windows on both the ground and first floors, offering a panoramic vista of the river and the green fields beyond.

With entertainment in mind, the communal area was an open-plan luxury living space, with a high-specification kitchen complemented by an impressive three-metre, granite-topped breakfast bar. The four bedrooms made it suited as either a large family home or a deluxe holiday rental, with an impressive master suite with vaulted ceiling, dressing room, en-suite bathroom and private balcony affording more of those breathtaking views across the river. The ability to lock-and-leave this property safely was made possible by a fully integrated phone-controlled security system and Nest camera doorbell.


Creek View is nothing short of unique and with its riverside location it was no surprise that it didn’t remain on the market for long. This is indicative of the wider market, especially in Cornwall, where low levels of supply have meant that buyers have to be decisive. This, in turn, means that high-quality homes such as this do not remain on the market for long, a positive message for anybody seeking to sell a Cornish property.
