Cornwall has been enjoying a renaissance, especially post COVID-19 lockdown. The county recently leapfrogged London to be recently crowned by rightmove as the top area in the UK for the most online property searches over the last year. The Duchy offers a range of accessible attractions such as the Eden Project, the National Maritime Museum, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, and the Tate Gallery. The Cathedral City of Truro is the main financial and commercial centre of Cornwall. It has a fine range of stores, private schools, college and the main hospital in the county (RCH Treliske). Both Falmouth University and Cornwall Airport at Newquay are rapidly expanding. Fine dining Michelin star and celebrity chef restaurants are in abundance, including Rick Stein (Falmouth and Padstow), Nathan Outlaw (Port Isaac), Paul Ainsworth (Padstow and Rock). Rising stars on The Roseland are Olly Pierrepont at the Driftwood, Rosevine and Dorian Janmaat at the Idle Rocks, St Mawes.
Bordered by National Trust land to the side and rear, thus meaning the spectacular views are ‘protected’, this superbly appointed and versatile residence is set within landscaped and easy to maintain gardens. The property was bought by our clients through ourselves in early 2007. It was originally sympathetically built under the supervision of local homeowners as their permanent residence. Our present clients, over the last few years, have made upgrades to Carrick View including a spa room, brand new kitchen and en suite bathroom, replacement windows, detached garage and re-landscaping the gardens for ease of maintenance and to maximise the splendid panorama.
Internally, the accommodation is designed to allow full exposure to the commanding position, offering 4 bedrooms and 4 bath / shower rooms arranged over two floors. A particular feature is the 28’1 x 22’8 living room which has an array of picture windows and partial vaulted ceilings to allow the views to belong within. The spa therapy room is a wonderful place to relax and unwind either in the sauna or the sunken therapy spa / hot tub. We feel this exceptional property will suit the second or permanent home family or retired buyer. Viewing internally is unhesitatingly recommended.
Aptly named ‘Carrick View’, mere photography does not do justice to the visit. This includes St Just Creek (with its picturesque waterside church), Messack Point, the mile wide Carrick Roads (Fal Estuary) to Mylor Yacht harbour and for across miles of surrounding Cornish countryside towards the North coast. The property faces towards the west to optimise the ever-changing activity, from ambling oyster boats, yachts racing, water skiers, canoeists, paddle boarders, an abundance of marine wildlife to amazing Cornish sunsets.
The entrance porch leads into the upper hallway with the main accommodation set out on the lower ground floor below. The lower ground floor living room opens out with a part vaulted ceiling making a very bright and airy space. A gas fired wood burner effect stove makes a great focal point with a dining area set to one side. The kitchen is well set out and links through to a room that is currently used as a breakfast room but could easily make a perfect office for anyone wanting to work from home.
Lower Ground Floor
There are two bedrooms on the lower ground floor with a guest bedroom enjoying a fabulous view and benefiting from a tastefully appointed en-suite. The 4th bedroom could easily be a media room, second sitting room or a study. There is separate access in from the side of the house leading through to the spa room comprising a sauna and Jacuzzi, which also benefits from a connecting shower room, perfect after a day’s sailing.
Upper Ground Floor
The ground/upper floor hosts the principal bedroom that has the best views from the balcony for further enjoyment. The spacious en-suite comprises a bath and separate shower. There is a large linen cupboard and further bedroom that could alternatively be used as a dressing room to compliment the principal bedroom if required.
