About this property

  • Originating in South Africa, Kya-Ka-Mina translates as “My Fine Home”. Sitting in a prime position on Pannier Lane, the property boasts spectacular views out over Carbis Bay Beach, Hayle Towans, Gwithian Beach, across the St Ives Bay to Godrevy Lighthouse. The house itself is in need of significant modernisation or potential redevelopment.

    The front door opens in to a dual aspect dining room that leads via an archway to the right in to a lounge, which is currently used as a bedroom and to the left a spacious internal lobby area. These both then open in to the main reception room and small office which spans the width of the lounge. Views from all seaward-facing rooms are quite spectacular, there's also a lovely view across the valley. The inner lobby also provides access to the family shower room, kitchen, and the door to the staircase down to the annexe. The kitchen is dual aspect with a door opening out on to the side courtyard, with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a free standing fridge/freezer, cooker and tumble dryer. The Shower room has a tiled floor, quadrant shower and heated towel rail.

    Upstairs there are three bedrooms, all with vaulted ceilings, built in wardrobes and sinks. Two are doubles and have spectacular views down to the beach and out over the bay. A further single bedroom has a side-view across the valley. There is also a cloakroom WC, a large linen/storage cupboard and under eaves storage.

    The Annexe

    The annexe downstairs, can be accessed via a staircase from the main house or through its own entrance off the path to the rear garden. There is a bedroom, storage room a cloakroom WC and separate shower room along with a reception room with sink unit and plumbing for a washing machine. Sliding doors open out on to the terrace. Once again, there are spectacular views from all rooms and the terrace. The annexe would benefit from significant modernisation.

There is a level pathway leading round the front of the house from the driveway, with raised mature beds to the left, to a side courtyard and side entrance.

    Rear Garden

    Steps between the garage and the house descend to the annexe entrance and to the rear garden.
    There is a rear terrace spanning the width of the house with steps on either side down to a level lawned area with central pond. Mature borders with camelias, are planted to each side with a large palm off centre. The views from the terrace and rear garden are superb.

Local information

  • Cornwall's unique character comes from its historic landscape and some 400 miles of spectacular coastline. This split level property occupies a magnificent setting, built on the hillside facing due East looking out over Carbis Bay and beyond. The South West Coast Path is accessed by footpath at the end of Parc Owles which leads, in one direction down to Carbis Bay beach. The beach rarely has any surf so makes for an ideal spot for families as the sea here is perfect for swimming. It is also one of beaches that make up St Ives Bay, listed as one of the world's best by the Most Beautiful Bays in the World Organisation, the beach at Carbis Bay is surrounded by sub-tropical plants and lapped by turquoise waters.
  • St Ives is just 1 mile to the north west along the Southwest Coast Path and is home to the landmark Tate St Ives Gallery (built in 1993) and the famous Barbara Hepworth Museum, St Ives is bordered by three beautiful sandy beaches which are repeatedly voted among the best in the British Isles, one (Porthmeor) particularly for surfing. Set against the colourful backdrop of the working fishing harbour, the turquoise waters of St. Ives have attracted artists since the 19th century due to its renowned clarity of light. The town, with winding cobbled streets, is also a ‘foodie' destination packed with numerous restaurants, pubs and cafes all offering excellent fare including the award-winning Porthminster Beach Café, set right upon the beautiful calm beach.
  • At nearby Lelant, overlooking the Hayle Estuary there is a spectacular links golf course with views stretching up towards Godrevy Lighthouse. A scenic branch railway line links Carbis Bay and St. Ives with the main London-Penzance line at nearby St. Erth.
