An impressive coastal mini-estate, set within about 30 acres with its own headland and coastline, in a uniquely sought after location between the Fal Estuary and Helford Passage.
The present house with slate and granite façade was built by the current owners in 2000. It occupies an elevated position, set back from the cliff edge, and enjoys enviable uninterrupted panoramic coastal and sea views. Surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens, the property enjoys privacy and seclusion.
The accommodation, which extends to over 3,300 sq. ft, is arranged over two floors, with a layout which ensures spectacular views are enjoyed from all of the principal rooms. On the ground floor there is a split level kitchen dining room with central island, doors to the utility and large conservatory. From the main entrance hall there is access to a further utility area, study, snug, conservatory and the main drawing room.
From the reception hall, an impressive curved staircase leads to a galleried landing which has access to a large balcony. There are four bedroom suites on the first floor, all with ensuite shower facilities. The Master and main guest bedrooms enjoy expansive and immediate views of the sea and coast whilst the remaining two bedrooms have views to the rear courtyard garden and down towards Swanpool Beach.
Within the grounds, to the north of the main house, there is a detached stone and granite studio/annexe which The current owners believe was part built from the materials of the original Tukes Cottage. It is arranged with one bedroom, a shower room and an open plan kitchen/living space and separate store room. Currently in a relatively poor state of repair, the building has significant potential to be refurbished to create secondary accommodation to the main house, or a holiday let, subject to the necessary consents.
Gardens & Grounds
Accessed via a pair of impressive metal gates, the house is approached via a long private driveway, flanked by a meadow between the drive and coastline. There is a paved parking and turning area to the side of the main house, with plenty of parking for several vehicles in front of the detached garage building.
There is a pretty, sheltered Mediterranean influenced courtyard garden at the rear with a further terrace to the front and side of the conservatory, leading onto a level lawned area to the front bounded by a low stone wall. To the south of the house there is a lovely wooded walkway with wild flowers and specimen shrubs. This leads via steps and locked gate to the coastal footpath and coves. To the north, another level lawned area leading to the studio/annexe.
There is a section of woodland to the south of the house, which leads to Stack Point and two large fields to the west, which are currently grazed by a local farmer and can be accessed from the road, without having to use the driveway leading to Stack Point House.
The South West Coastal Footpath runs from north to south within the property's boundary. In recent years, the path has been diverted further away from the house, the hedging in front of it and the natural lie of the bank behind affords a great deal of privacy for the house.
The property's eastern boundary includes part of the cliff face and in recent years there has been some slippage. For further details, please contact the agents.
Within the grounds are the remains of Penance Cottage, which could provide a footprint for an additional dwelling, subject to the necessary consents.
