THE PROPERTY    A beautifully presented house with two newly built eco cottages within the stunning gardens. The house has been comprehensively updated and offers all the modern conveniences a family could ask for including wooden double glazing throughout. The fully self-contained eco cottages (named 'Arthur' and 'Guinevere' by the owner) are a new addition to the property and provide additional accommodation, or income through letting. The gardens are spectacular and bordered by a babbling stream. They provide various planting areas, rockeries, a chicken coop, and private gardens for both of the eco cottages as well as various seating areas including elevated decks to enjoy views of the garden, the surrounding countryside and St. Ives Bay. The home has the enviable position of being within walking distance of the amenities of Carbis Bay and within a stone's throw of the beach, sea and St. Ives yet feeling entirely rural, at the end of a no-through road lane.

.    This is truly a unique offering in one of the most desirable locations in Cornwall.

MAIN HOUSE    With Georgian origins the stone built house provides generous accommodation over two floors. A front porch with stable door leads into a large kitchen/dining room with a range of base units with solid oak work surfaces. An electric Aga (far more convenient than the conventional oil fired) adds to the farmhouse feel as do the exposed ceiling beams. A utility room to the rear of the kitchen creates further work space having matching cupboards and work surfaces as well as a belfast sink and space for a dishwasher and washing machine. There is a convenient cloak room off the utility room. Adjacent to the kitchen is the comfortable sitting room with featured wood burner sited within a lovely stone fireplace with slate hearth. French doors allow light to stream in from the side of the house. The Study to the rear of the sitting room, which also has french doors to the side garden, is currently used as an office however could easily become a child's play room, or additional reception room.

.    A large conservatory is accessed from the kitchen and is a superb room to enjoy the views over the garden whilst being large enough to perform double duty as a dining area. Throughout the ground floor there is American Oak Amtico flooring. Stairs from the kitchen lead up to the first floor with oak flooring throughout, five bedrooms and two family bathrooms both with separate showers. heated towel rails and one with under floor heating. Four of the five bedrooms are suitable for double beds and three of these rooms have built in wardrobes. The master bedroom also features french doors opening to a private balcony which overlooks and provides access to the garden. Throughout, the house provides superb views over the surrounding countryside - particularly surprising given the convenient village location.

ECO COTTAGES AND STUDIO    Built and converted by the current owner, there are two cottages on the property, both of which have seen very little use allowing a turn-key holiday rental business (the cottages can be sold furnished by separate negotiation). The two storey cottage (Arthur) has an open plan kitchen/sitting room and a bedroom/study with en-suite cloak room on the ground floor. The first floor has a bedroom, bathroom and family room which could be used as a third bedroom or reception room with doors opening to an unusual balcony with Ovo-glass floor designed to allow light into the windows below. The cottage has a private courtyard to the front along with it's own entrance from the parking area. Beside 'Arthur' is a two roomed, single story fully heated studio with water supply. Ample windows combined with skylights create a bright studio flooded with the natural light for which St. Ives (and it's surrounding area) is renowned.

.    The second eco cottage has a superb open plan kitchen sitting room with vaulted ceiling and wood burning stove, two bedrooms and a family bathroom.

GARDEN & GROUNDS    Gates open to a graveled parking area at the front of the house. Paths lead to the side of the house and to one of the eco cottages which has its own parking area. A gate leads through to the superb main garden which is predominantly south facing and features numerous planting areas divided over three lawned gardens. This garden is an absolute delight with constant surprises around each corner. Various seating areas allow differing views of the garden including elevated views from the western bank and a raised decked area at the end of the garden. There are ponds and a stream that runs down the eastern border of the property. Both cottages have their own gated garden, that of 'Guinevere' being a particularly private and romantic spot. Tucked away in the secluded South West corner of the top of the garden there is a timber frame summer house with wood burning stove, kitchenette, power, and water.

.    On the way up the garden there is a central vegetable garden with raised beds; and a green house; as well as a storage shed, pagoda, garden storage shed, potting shed. Imaginatively designed, the current owner has created a stunning oasis on the outskirts of the village.
