Within the kitchen area there is plenty of space for a kitchen table and French doors leading out to the rear terrace. The kitchen flows through to the sitting room with large bay window and garden door to the rear terrace. This is lovely room with original fireplace and built-in display/book shelves. The second reception room is at the front of the property with French doors to front garden and door to boiler room/wc.

      On the first floor is the principal bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en suite shower room, lovely sea views and door to balcony. There are a further three good sized double bedrooms on this floor, one with sea views and a large family bathroom with freestanding bath and separate shower.

      On the second floor is a further double bedroom with sea views, built-in wardrobe and plenty of eaves' storage.

      To the front of the property behind a high Cornish stone wall is a gravelled parking area, an attached single garage, and area of lawn with path leading around the side of the property to the rear garden.

      The rear enclosed garden has a large raised south facing terrace running the width of the house with wide stone steps down to a good-sized area of lawn with a further south west facing terrace. There are some very impressive palm trees and well-established olive trees and at the bottom of the garden a gate leading to a private path down to Cliff Road and Gyllyngvase beach.
