A stunning, Architect designed house, set in immaculate gardens, located in one of the region's most sought after, coastal locations, overlooking the Bay of Falmouth.
The contemporary, two-story Kew Las house was completed in 2018, finished to the highest specification throughout by the current owners. The impressive house with its dark gray slate, tile hung upper floor and roof, over the white rendered ground floor is approached by a long, gated driveway which opens out on to a gravelled arrival court. A low-level stone wall connects the main house and the adjacent, double fronted garage building, while surrounding mature and sophisticated planting compliments the building geometry and material finishes. The house is laid out in a broadly rectangular, symmetrical arrangement with the main entrance centred on the western façade and the key living rooms arranged along the eastern side of the property, the layout thoughtfully designed to provide enjoyment of the incredible views over Falmouth Bay. The Ground Floor- The main entrance porch on the house's western side is a welcoming, light and airy space with a glazed front door and a range of windows wrapping around the sides of the space. The porch is lit by a central pendant light and the room heated by a small electric wall heater. An eye-catching decorative tiled floor finish, painted in natural warm grey colours contrasts with the solid oak flooring beyond in the main entrance hall. As you open the beautiful internal blue front door you are met with an overwhelming feeling of coastal light and space, with a view across the garden that captures the big blue skies and sea, a view that has inspired writers and artists for centuries. The blue front door opens into an impressive, two and a half storey height entrance hall with a partially glazed, vaulted ceiling, allowing light to flood into the heart of the house. The hall and its grand, turning staircase frame a 21-piece glass globe chandelier that flows from the ceiling to the ground floor, drawing the eye up to the upper floor and the view of the sky above.
From this striking arrival hall, the space opens out to an impressive open dining and kitchen space, providing the foreground to the most breath-taking view of Falmouth Bay with castles, yachts, coastal fishing villages and light houses marking the scene; the setting for many infamous voyages and landings by brave nautical explorers. Turning to the right from the front door, the oak floored entrance hall leads to a recessed cloak cupboard, where casings for the internet, heating manifolds and computer hubs are located under a generous coat hanging space. There is also a cloakroom tucked behind the stairs, part tiled and with a double window to the front of the house. Laufen wall mounted sink and WC units are complimented by decorative porcelain floor and wall tiles. A wall-to-wall stone shelf and feature wall lighting create a luxurious feel to the little room. At the opposite end of the hall, a door opens into the study/bedroom. This cosy, carpeted room provides a quiet place to work and with the double French door opening out into a secluded, courtyard garden at the front of the house, it is the perfect place to focus and write. The study has a bespoke, wall recessed bookshelf system framed in oak and a window looking north over the rolling Cornish pastoral scenes of the adjacent farm. Dining/Kitchen Room- The open plan dining and kitchen room is over 38 foot wide, filled with light from a six panelled glazed wall to the dining area, with the two central door panels opening out onto an expansive granite terrace. The dining area is floored with extra wide planked oak and the glazed wall is shaded by Silent Gliss remote controlled electric sash blinds.A luxurious grey limestone polished flagstone floor defines the kitchen space. The floor finishes are of an extremely high quality and there is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor of the house.
The bespoke kitchen with a central granite surfaced island feature has been designed by well-respected local kitchen designers, Treyone Kitchens.

The windows frame the views of the coast, grounds and potager garden to the south, the source of a plentiful supply of home grown herbs and vegetables. From the kitchen there is a large rear entrance porch and utility room, with fitted shaker style units to match the kitchen. There is a walk-in pantry with automatic LED lighting and a plant room cupboard that houses a pressurised, 300 litre water tank and control system. There are spaces for a full height freezer, an under counter washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a Villeroy and Boch Belfast ceramic sink set under a granite counter, all lit by natural day light from the windows to the front of the house. There is a part glazed door out to the southern side of the house that is covered by an open, tile roofed porch with oak columns, the perfect place for muddy boots and paws to dry off. Lounge -At the north eastern end of the house, accessed directly from the central dining area, is the lounge, a large, double aspect room with feature wood burner and wall recessed log store. A contemporary, central chandelier and elegant wall lamps add to the refined character of the space. Wide windows to the north and east of the property afford wide ranging views across the coastal, pastoral and maritime landscapes, creating a peaceful sanctuary for after dinner relaxation while watching the sun set. The entrance hall staircase- The bespoke, steel frame staircase feels solid. It is faced in light oak and is enclosed by double thickness, glazed balustrades to allow the light to flow uninterrupted through the hall. Oak handrails cap the glass balustrade panels, each run terminated by polished, burr oak end caps and junction features. The carpeted treads make the ascent up to the first-floor bedrooms even more sumptuous.The lighting system throughout the house has been designed by specialist lighting designer, Claire Pendarves who has sought to create a range of low energy light settings and light moods for the property. On the ground floor the lighting is operated by a Lutron system offering a range of lighting scenes and programable options. The central pendant lights to the dining and kitchen area are sculptural canvas Nelly' lights that compliment a range of designer tilting wall lights and ceiling LED downlighting. Most lights are dimmable and all lights are included in the house sale excluding the hive range in the master bedroom suite.

Within the rear of the garage is a gardener's potting room, accessed by a separate side door, leading to a Jack and Jill bathroom. A third door leads up a staircase to an impressive timber floored studio, flood lit by white framed Velux windows with integral blinds in the vaulted ceiling. Behind the garage there is a small green house and gravelled space for boat storage, accessed via the 10m wide double side gates approached via Muddy Lane' along the side of the property.
