    About this property

    • Built by the current owners in 2004, Chynoweth is a modern home internally whilst externally the house has a reclaimed Delabole slate roof, the upper floor panelled in natural larch shiplap and the ground level rendered, which ensures that the property fits handsomely into its rural surroundings. Access to the house is from the gravelled parking area along a cobbled granite pathway through the garden to the front door.

      The accommodation is arranged over two floors with the ground floor comprising a spacious hallway, off which there is an office, cloakroom, utility room with a large butler's sink and wc. A wide archway leads down two steps to a large open plan kitchen, dining & sitting room. The kitchen has a travertine floor, a walk-in larder, large central island with a built-in microwave, built-in dishwasher, granite worktops and space for a large range oven and American style fridge freezer. The spacious sitting area has a built in Barbas wood burner and patio doors to both sides of the room, giving light and access to both the front and rear garden and patio.

      The first floor is accessed by a wooden and glass panelled return staircase leading to a very large light and spacious landing, which is currently used as secondary sitting room. There are three bedrooms, each with vaulted ceilings, and a double aspect family bathroom, with travertine flooring, dual basins, free standing bath and walk in shower. The large triple aspect master bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and en suite. Two of the bedrooms also have Velux windows and the third has a door giving access to the upper garden.

    Local information

    • Mawla is a small sociable hamlet of 14 houses just minutes from Porthtowan Beach. Porthtowan derives its name from the two Cornish words ‘porth' and ‘tewynn' which describes its two most obvious and beautiful features to mean ‘Cove of Sand Dunes'.
    • It owes its present character to its popularity as a local seaside resort in Victorian and Edwardian times when the local residents from surrounding areas flocked to the beach to enjoy the bathing waters and walks along the cliffs. The cliff walks are splendid, and the beach is popular with surfers as well as families, with a number of surf championships held there each year. There is now much more to Porthtowan with local facilities including beach shops, post office, pub, bar, hair and beauty salon and a minimarket as well as hotels and guest houses.
    • Overlooking Porthtowan are the remains of Wheal Towan, one of Cornwall's most celebrated 18th century copper mines and scene of a fortune amassed by Ralph Allen Daniell of Trelissick.
    • The nearby village of St. Agnes is a lively community with a wide range of shops, bars, restaurants, a primary school and of course the ancient harbour by the beach at Trevaunance Cove.
    • Truro, 9.5 miles away, is the administrative centre of Cornwall and has excellent amenities including good private and state schools, varied shops and commercial opportunities. Truro railway station serves the Paddington to Penzance line, though Redruth station is closer (approx. 3 miles).
