    About this property

    • The Property
      Hillside is a double fronted, white rendered terraced cottage that hugs the lane down to Portloe cove. It nestles between the traditional Ship Inn and the adjacent fisherman's cottages, all tightly knit, typical of a historic fishing settlement. The original cottage has been extended to the rear to accommodate a spacious kitchen and an additional bedroom above and at the rear of the house there are stone steps ascending to an enclosed garden terrace.

      Ground Floor
      The pretty blue stable front door opens onto a stone tiled, central corridor that runs through from the front to back of the house, with plenty of hanging space for coats. A door to the right opens onto a cosy and characterful sitting room with stripped floor boards, an open fireplace, slate hearth and carved fire surround. An arched alcove frames presentation shelves and a media storage cupboard, while the box sash window with original timber shutters adds to the period charm of the room. To the left of the hall is the cosy dining/kitchen area with a large inglenook fireplace, wall niches and Cornish clome ovens. An upholstered window seat provides a comfy view towards the harbour. A couple of steps lead to the well-appointed, Cornish Blue designer-fitted kitchen, its solid wood units punctuated by integrated appliances including a large Smeg cream enamel double range oven, a Hotpoint washing machine, Zanussi Dishwasher and a fridge/freezer. From the kitchen, a door opens onto the rear of the central corridor and through into a stone-tiled family shower room with a WC and pedestal basin.

      First floor
      Ascending the carpeted stairs, a split-level landing opens onto three double bedrooms, a linen cupboard and a second family bathroom with a traditional roll-top bath, WC and basin. A period timber wall, window seats and original doors reflect the maritime setting. Many of the building's original external and internal features remain intact and the home has been lovingly designed and extended to create a desirable family house, holiday home or holiday let business.

      From the back of the house, a flight of stone steps leads up under a glass canopy to an enclosed paved terrace with shrub planting and space for alfresco dining or sunbathing. There is a small woodstore and a gated path that runs along the rear of the Inn.

    Local information

    • Hillside is a charming Georgian terraced house located in the heart of the beautiful, ancient coastal village of Portloe, not surprisingly within a designated Conservation Area and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and featuring some of Cornwall's best beaches.
    • The village, described by the Poet Laureate, Sir John Betjeman as One of the least spoiled and most impressive of Cornish fishing villages, lies at the end of a steep valley opening onto a sheltered harbour. Portloe continues to support a small fishing fleet, supplying lobster and crab to local restaurants.
    • Surrounded by spectacular scenery, it retains much of its old world charm and is one of Cornwall's most desirable coastal addresses, with its sheltered cove, stunning cliffs and sea views. There is direct access to the stunning South West Coast Path. Truro, the Duchy's capital, is less than 25 minutes' drive away.
    • Hillside is located next to the traditional Ship Inn and is within 20 minutes' drive of some of Cornwall's most popular attractions including The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Caerhays Castle. The world renowned Eden Project is a little further afield.
    • Not far away is St Mawes and its legendary boutique hotels. From there, ferries run to the vibrant harbour town of Falmouth on the other side of the Carrick Roads estuary, where there is an impressive choice of wine bars, restaurants, boutique shops and maritime attractions.
    • Trains run from St Austell 13 miles to the north east offering high speed connections to Exeter, London and Scotland.
    • There is a good range of schools. The Veryan Church of England Primary School is within a ten minute drive. Truro and St Austell have a selection of public and private schools with Good to Outstanding Ofsted rankings.
