Portloe is a very picturesque, protected and unspoilt fishing village, nestling between the powerful cliffs on the south eastern coast of the Roseland Peninsula, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. John Betjeman described the village as "One of the least spoiled and most impressive of Cornish fishing villages." Nearby Carne Beach, owned by the National Trust, has a wide expanse of clean sand and safe bathing.
Home to the fashionable and highly acclaimed Lugger Hotel, the village is on the Cornwall Coast Footpath providing miles of spectacular cliff top walks in either direction. The pretty village of Veryan is approximately 2 miles distant and provides a primary school, church, mini-market/Post Office and public house. The exclusive sailing resort of St. Mawes and the Hotel Tresanton is about 9.5 miles away.
The Cathedral city of Truro is about 10 miles away, Truro being the commercial and judicial centre for Cornwall. It also has a main line inter-city railway link to London Paddington besides branch services to the port of Falmouth. Newquay Airport, with flights to London Gatwick and Stansted and many other European destinations is approximately 24 miles distant.
The Blue House is situated in a peaceful location little changed by time. Local fishing boats can still be seen landing their catches of crabs and lobsters from the harbour, approximately 100 yards away.
The Blue House, tastefully refurbished in recent years to a very high standard, is a stunning residence in an equally stunning location. The accommodation is cleverly reversed with two lovely bedrooms on the ground floor both enjoying views to the sea. The smaller of the two bedrooms currently has a double bed, but could be replaced with bunks for children, or alternatively used as a dressing room. There is also a fabulous wetroom to wash away sand and salt from the days outing.
The main living accommodation is set out on the first floor with a vaulted ceiling, woodburner and twin windows allowing the room to be filled with light. The views to the harbour are terrific and can be even better enjoyed from the terrace set just outside the kitchen. From here the panorama opens up with views over the harbour and along the coast allowing you to watch the fishermen bringing in their days catch.
The kitchen, complete with integrated dishwasher and fridge/freezer, is spacious and beautifully set out inviting many a culinary delight. There is also the added benefit of a useful utility/wc with washer/dryer.
Included in the sale is a fascinating vaulted lime kiln that provides excellent outside lockable storage, ideal for canoes or boating paraphernalia.
The majority of furniture, furnishings, fixtures and fittings (excluding personal effects) are included in the sale.
Travelling from Tregony heading towards St Mawes, passing a petrol station, turn left and travel towards Veryan. After approx 1mile turn left signed for Portloe. Continue into the village. The Blue House will be found on the right hand side just before the left hand turning down to the Lugger.
