This individual detached residence has, in recent years, undergone complete restoration and extension to quality standards. An engineered oak flooring contrasts the original parquet flooring to the 39’3 x 35’1 L-shaped open plan kitchen, living and dining room. A specifically designed oak staircase leads to a ‘Lookout’ first floor sitting room which has a large 15’8 x 14’3 balcony. This room is galleried over the kitchen and has mesmerising 270° degree triple aspect river, countryside, village, harbour and bay views.
All the windows and the bi-fold doors were installed by a local company who sourced the double glazed units from Sweden. The stylish bathroom, shower rooms and utility room are fitted with Fired Earth tiles and the contemporary kitchen is fitted by Out of Wood and features a 7’ central island, Corian worktops and electric Aga cooker.
Connected to the property is a double garage which has been built with a view to conversion if required into an annexe accommodation or a 4th bedroom en suite.
By only viewing internally can one fully appreciate the full quality that this light and airy property offers.
Particularly from the ‘Lookout’ room, the views from various vantage points around the property and gardens include the Percuil River to the east, beautiful countryside on St Anthony National Trust Headland, Place Manor, St Mawes Harbour and village, extending out onto Falmouth Bay, Pendennis and St Mawes Castles with The Lizard Peninsula beyond. The views are ever changing and are a hive of water activity throughout the year.
Under PA19/00567, the property has planning permission granted to convert the connecting garage into annexe accommodation. Planning previously expired for an outbuilding / garage / boat store to be erected on the driveway.
