Prime position above Carbis Bay with fabulous, expansive sea views. Requiring modernisation or potential redevelopment, this is an exciting and rare opportunity to create a fantastic home
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 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.
Gardens & The Exterior
Fronted by a low stone wall with mature hedging above, Kya-Ka-Mina is built on a hillside and sits below the level of the road. A tarmac driveway descends about 3 feet from the road to a level parking area just big enough for two cars and the single garage. 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.
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. Views of Carbis Bay beach and across the bay to the Towans & Godrevy Lighthouse. In the last three years, large pods of dolphins have come close in-shore, during the winter months, as well as the occasional seal.
