About this property

  • Kilter House is a charming Georgian farmhouse, which is not listed, that has recently been completely refurbished by the current owners to an exceptionally high standard with attractive stone and slate-hung elevations beneath a slate roof.

    The property offers generous family accommodation across two levels and is accessed via an original granite porch leading to a slate-floored hallway with an elegant turning staircase. On the right a spacious living room has aspects to the south and west and large sash windows with window seats to take advantage of the excellent light. A fireplace with wood burner and granite lintel provides a focal point for the room.

    The Kitchen/Diner is to the left of the hall, beside the study and farm-house door to the garden. The large kitchen/dining room has a slate floor and views out over the courtyard with large sash windows, one with window seat. A range of bespoke units to include a Belfast sink with solid oak work top and built in dishwasher. A central island which has a polished granite work top, built in Neff Electric hob and oven and cupboards below. The original fireplace with an oak lintel contains a 2 oven oil-fired Aga flanked by cupboards. To the left of the fireplace is a recess with space for a free standing Fridge Freezer.

    There is a separate utility/boot-room with built in units under a solid oak work top, with a Belfast sink and space below for white goods. There is a built in freezer to the side a stable door opens onto the garden, as well as to a ground floor wet room.

    The main staircase leads to a wide and bright landing with the triple aspect master bedroom on the left. Next to the bedroom is a stunning bathroom with a free standing claw foot bath and large separate shower. There are two further bedrooms and a family shower room on the first floor which can be accessed via a secondary staircase from the kitchen. The fourth bedroom has a bright aspect and built in cupboards.


    Kilter House is set in a secluded position on a private lane within walking distance of the village of Coverack. The house itself is arranged around two sides of a central slate paved, low walled courtyard which is open to the south and west and enjoys sun most of the day.

    To the rear of the property the gardens take full advantage of their position and slope gently to the south-west, with views through trees across the valley to the west. The grounds extend to roughly three quarters of an acre and provide privacy and plenty of outdoor space. The gardens have been well maintained and planted to provide colour throughout the year. There are large areas of level lawn, bordered by mature trees and shrubs along the surrounding hedges. Ample parking adjoins the driveway.

The countryside and coastline are famed for their varied animal and plant-life, geology and history, while the climate on the Lizard is often milder than the rest of the country.
  • Once the haunt of smugglers and wreckers, Coverack is a beautiful example of a traditional Cornish fishing village, where the houses hug the curve of the bay. A thriving village, it has a well-regarded primary school, shop, church, pub, restaurants and cafes.
