Fancy living on the water’s edge? Otter Cottage could be the home of your dreams

This charming slate-hung house occupies an idyllic spot right on the waterfront in Falmouth, Cornwall

Calling Otter Cottage home is as close to living on the water as it gets without occupying a riverboat! The stunning waterfront house comes with its own private quay on Mylor Creek. This magnificent location provides direct access to some of the finest sailing waters in the UK – great news for sailing enthusiasts.

The picturesque house was built in 1988 by the current owners, who thoughtfully ensured every room provided stunning views of the surrounding waters.

The house is split over three floors comprising of four generous bedrooms, an open-plan living and kitchen area with an additional more formal living room. The garden runs alongside the river, with a paved area perfect for entertaining and watching the boats sail by. An ample grassed area and a greenhouse are ideal for gardening fans to enjoy.
