About this property

  • The property was originally built for the Harbour Master, therefore located in a commanding position facing west with views down to the Harbour and out across the sea with commanding views of the Lizard and West Penwith peninsulas overlooking Porthleven beach and beautiful sunsets. You could expect to occasionally see pods of dolphins playing with the surfers. The property has been used as a second/holiday home for many years. The house has been remodelled and extended by the current owners to take full advantage of the outstanding views and create a light-filled entertaining space perfect for coastal, modern-day living. The house was bought and rebuilt/renovated by the current owners in 2011. It was part-used as a successful holiday let for 3 years, only used by the family the last 5 years. Exterior painting of house and garden wall to be done April 2021.

    The front door leads into the hall off which through double doors is the large kitchen/dining/sitting room. This is an extremely large room with a travertine tiled floor and triple aspect windows and French doors out onto the terrace. There are two distinct seating areas, the kitchen and a dining area. The kitchen has matt black wooden units with polished wood block work surfaces, a Belfast sink, induction hob, two built in ovens, integrated Dishwasher, space for a large free standing Fridge Freezer and a central island with breakfast bar. The 1st sitting area has a gas fired wood burner, sofa's and wiring for TV, the second seating area is in the window on one side of the patio doors to take advantage of the spectacular views and the dining area to the other side. Also off the hallway is an under stairs cloakroom, separate shower room, utility room with a sink, plumbing for washing machine, space for a tumble drier and hot water tank. At the end of the hallway is the second reception room, currently used as a study but could easily be used as a secondary sitting room or 5th bedroom. A return staircase leads to the first floor where there are 3 good sized double bedrooms all with views out across the harbour and beyond, with the family bathroom with 3-piece suite and separate shower and 4th single bedroom looking out over the rear courtyard.


    The West facing sunny garden is fully decked and raised significantly above street level behind a white wall and low hedge affording simply stunning views out over the harbour and across Mounts Bay towards West Penwith Peninsula. There is ample entertaining space, perfect for ‘al fresco' dining and watching the sun set over the ocean. There are two parking spaces at the front of the property with steps up to a pathway leading to both the front garden and the front door, located to the side of the property.
