Situation - Occupying a spectacular cliff-top setting above Duporth Beach, Humberstone enjoys wonderful views across St. Austell Bay.
Set amidst picturesque countryside between the harbour villages of Charlestown and Pentewan, Porthpean is an attractive and particularly sought after coastal village with its own sandy beach and sailing club, approximately 0.25 mile from the property. The St. Austell Bay area offers outstanding coastal scenery which can be best enjoyed from the Southwest Coast Path whilst within a short distance is Porthpean Golf Course.
St. Austell provides a comprehensive range of shopping, banking, schooling and recreational facilities whilst Truro, the commercial centre of the County, is approximately 15 miles distant and provides a fine array of shops, together with leading educational establishments.
There are a number of local beaches around St Austell Bay and at Carlyon Bay there is a cliff top 18-hole golf course. Slightly further afield there are picturesque coves and harbour villages together with the captivating scenery of the Roseland Peninsula.

The Property - Constructed in the 1930s, Humberstone stands in an enviable front-line coastal position capitalising on the magnificent vistas. In recent years Porthpean Beach Road has proved to be a sought after location due in no small part to the mature nature and mixture of dwellings, together with a delightful beach and picturesque coastline.
The Vendor's home for over 10 years, the property offers comfortable accommodation and stands within a mature garden that opens directly onto the Southwest Coastal Footpath. Approached to an entrance vestibule, there is direct access into the well-appointed kitchen complete with Shaker style units and oak work surfaces. This leads into the dining room which stands at the heart of the house and onwards from here to the recently added sun lounge with 11ft wide bi-fold doors opening onto the raised sun terrace and enjoying glorious views across the garden to St. Austell Bay. The ground floor is completed with a spacious staircase hall, utility room, cloakroom and formal sitting room overlooking the rear gardens and sea beyond.
The first floor comprises a delightful galleried landing with window to the rear enjoying sea views. In addition there is a family shower room and three bedrooms, the master benefiting from a well-appointed en-suite.

Outside - Humberstone is approached to a driveway that leads to an integral garage with a secluded area of garden to one side. Pathways pass either side of the property to the rear garden which is generous and principally laid to lawn being surrounded by a plethora of well planted flower and shrub borders. Stretching across the rear of the sun lounge is a raised balustraded sun terrace being an excellent vantage point. Below this is a circular patio with direct access onto the garden.
