    About this property

    • Designed as a modern coastal home, Shepherd's Rest was built of steel and concrete, faced with local stone, much of it from the site, with granite quoins and lintels as is traditional in Cornish vernacular architecture. Built in 2007 and with significant alterations made in 2018, Shepherd's Rest truly is unconventional and full of surprises. The first of these is the entrance, resembling a cabin but opening onto a spacious, elegant entrance hall that houses a lift to the lower floor. Pausing on the footbridge that leads to the front door allows the most stunning view across the greenery of the living roof and beyond the surrounding field to the sea.

      The luxurious tone of the interior décor is set by the wide, ash staircase down to a galleried hallway opening onto the open living space which flows from the lounge area to the dining area and the kitchen. Despite notable features such as the wood burner, the many versatile light fittings, luxurious carpets and attractive porcelain floor tiles, the focal point is the magnificent view through the multiple floor-to-ceiling windows and patio doors which form a continuous glass wall curving along the south west aspect. The open plan allows uninterrupted views externally and internally as the space sweeps towards the large, open kitchen to the rear. This is a very well equipped kitchen fitted with high quality appliances including two NEFF ovens and a Fisher and Paykel fridge freezer, as well as plentiful storage space and work tops complemented by a large central marble topped island with induction hob and pop up extractor fan, additional storage and seating.

      A utility / laundry room is immediately beyond the kitchen.
      The continuous flow of space is enhanced by the white walls and porcelain floor tiles stretching from the kitchen along a short corridor to the principal bedroom suite, comprising a dressing room, walk in wardrobe area and generously proportioned en suite bathroom with extra wide shower and advanced technology toilet.

      Bathed in natural light from the southwest facing curved glass curtain wall, with patio doors onto the garden, the large principal bedroom has the luxury of garden, countryside and sea views.

      Following the corridor from the opposite side of the kitchen, there is firstly a bathroom, also very spacious, fitted with ceramic tiles throughout, wide shower, deep bath and heated towel rail (as in all the bathrooms). Adjoining this is the first of the king size double bedrooms in this area of the house. With floor to ceiling wardrobes all of these bedrooms offer practicality and the convenience of full height windows and patio doors opening onto the external paved terrace. An en suite shower room to the furthest bedroom is another great use of curved space and luxurious fittings. The rear corridor opens to an east facing courtyard, ideal for al fresco breakfasts.


      A wide gate on the coast road opens to a private drive alongside a level lawned garden to a parking area and curved drive down to the back entrance. At the lower level there is a tiled patio terrace sheltered by a high stone hedge which also protects privacy for the hot tub, a solar powered shower and all the space needed for sunbathing, barbecues and outside dining. A level lawned garden wraps around the front to another drive into the garden with a wide gate to allow for garden machinery and access to the oil tank, screened by a tamarisk hedge.
      In the far corner of the parking area a private path leads to the village.

    Local information

    • This property is unique in a number of ways, not least its location: it is set into a gently sloping hillside on the edge of Cubert looking westwards over Holywell Bay, the extensive protected area of Penhale Dunes and the magnificent coast stretching beyond St Ives. The road from Newquay to Holywell Bay passes through Cubert which has a primary school, bakery and post office and a 14th c. church dedicated to the saint of the same name.
    • Holywell Bay has a wide beach with fine sand and a surf break, popular with families and surfers alike. The twin peaks of Gull Rock feature in numerous images of glowing sunsets as well as being a backdrop for BBC's Poldark. The South West Coast Path is easily accessed here and beside it the thatched Treguth Inn remains open all year round.
