Green Acre is set within approximately two thirds of an acre and occupies a fantastic location within Polperro and enjoys totally un-obstructed views of the village, harbour and harbour mouth, the beach, surrounding hillsides and to the English Channel. This is arguably one of the most extraordinary and entertaining views in any part of the West Country coastline. Polperro's working harbour supports a small fishing fleet, while the sheltered waters beyond the harbour provide a temporary haven for visiting yachts. Polperro is one of the most picturesque coastal villages in Cornwall with its deep sided valleys and a myriad of colour washed cottages. The River Pol runs centrally down through the village straddled by a variety of bridges and cottages.

There are numerous small shops, pubs, restaurants and art galleries providing all year round interest, while there are also many seasonal businesses. Access into Polperro is limited with most vehicle parking on the edge of the village with the shuttle service by mini bus into the centre. However Green Acre has its own private car space acquired at great expense in the centre of the village. It is on the right near where the shuttle stops.

The nearby town of Looe, approximately four miles distant, provides a further range of facilities and a small branch line railway station leading into Liskeard, approximately 10 miles to the north, which is on the Penzance to Paddington line. Access to Plymouth is via the A38 and the Tamar Bridge with an average travelling time of 45 minutes by road. The Cornwall south coast path runs close to the property gaining access to many parts of this largely National Trust owned coastline.

Set high above the harbour, Green Acres position provides surprisingly private yet very open aspect across the harbour, coastline and out to sea. The property enjoys a wonderful coastal location and is approached via meandering steps leading to a large terrace being elevated enough to overlook neighbouring properties and take in the outstanding views.

Inside the property, there are attractive character features including a large fireplace, beamed ceilings and large picture windows letting in ample natural light. There is a sizeable reception room and generous kitchen/dining room on the ground floor with three bedrooms, family bathroom and separate WC on the first floor.

Having such a private and enchanting location and offering such breathtaking and inspiring sea views, an early viewing is most highly recommended.

OUTSIDE The approach to the property is via a long path of slate and stone steps leading steeply up from the roadside of The Warren. This path also provides access to neighbouring cottages. The entrance gate is embellished with a 1937 plate and leads to a delightful cottage garden with lawned areas interspersed with stone paths. To the side of the cottage is an open porch way providing shelter and could serve as a terrace for alfresco dining. From here a path leads gently up to a terrace where the views are panoramic and captivating. While the entire property enjoys unobstructed and exceptional views over the harbour, sea and coastline, this area is strategically set to take the best advantage of the aspect, guaranteed to provide a truly birds eye position.

. The gardens continue around the house with a lawned area and barbeque to the front. The crazy paved terrace leads across the cottage and a timber garden shed is set to one corner. The gardens rise up through to woodland with protected and sheltered areas, currently undeveloped but providing a real opportunity for the gardening enthusiast to make full use of this area.
