Set out all on one level, the property provides ample accommodation with high ceilings and the potential to further increase the bedrooms easily by the addition of a loft conversion. This is something the current vendors have plans for and have gained full planning permission.
The kitchen offers an attractively laid-out area with neutral ceramic flooring and surprisingly attractive wooden panelled ceiling with inset spot lights and central velux window dancing natural light into the area. Further light is gained with two windows to the front and rear overlooking the gardens.
A matching range of light coloured contemporary shaker units surround the room at base and head height, offering ample storage space and finished with a roll edge work surface in a dark granite effect.

The recently rebuilt sun room is a truly magical space. Perfect both in the Summer and Winter months, it would be a travesty if you didn't find the time to sit in this plentiful area and admire a view which really is truly wonderful. Because of the open expanse to the front, the view is very wide ranging, taking in Rame Head to East and Looe Island to the West with glimpses of the Lizard in the distance. The room itself has strip wood flooring and floor to celling double glazed windows with contemporary blind fittings that retract to leave them virtually invisible. A side door gives another entrance to the front and another set of internal wooden French doors open up into the Living Room. The room has been built on a miniature dwarf wall with electrical points, a glass self cleaning roof structure will offer views of the stars at night.
Decorated in neutral colours the Living Room again offers ample space with oak flooring and a window to the side providing more natural light.

Like the Dining room, glimpses of the sea are made through the sunroom. Warm and inviting the room offers a more formal family seating area.
The beginning of the bedroom accommodation is found at the end of the hallway with a Study/Bedroom 4 offering a versatile space with window to front, door to side vestibule and internal door through to the third bedroom with window to side. The two larger bedrooms are found adjacent and provide multiple windows to the rear providing natural light and ample space with wooden flooring and high ceilings. The Master Bedroom is Simple yet modern and benefits from a large wardrobe accessed via an internal door.
The proposed loft conversion would, if undertaken, utilise this wardrobe and the space of a removed chimney breast behind to create the stairs which could then be accessed from the hallway to provide an impressive, spacious Master Bedroom with en-suite and Balcony to the front in which to enjoy sunsets over the sea.
Externally the property sits in a plot which is both wide and generous in length. Indeed the current owners have previously been approached to sell the land for the erection of two new build dwellings in the past but have declined. Parking is offered to the front with an off road standing for up to three vehicles and access to a single detached garage. Pretty walling houses a lawn area to the front of the main house with a variety of mature shrubs, trees and mature botanical plantings found interspersed amongst well organised bedding areas.

Further into the gardens the rear has been landscaped to provide a large level area laid to lawn, providing a safe area for children to play, with a walled bed containing palms and other exotic plants. To the right of these is the upper decking providing a different viewpoint to the front, whilst the rear of the garden is hedged by trees and provides privacy and shelter.
In summary, the home provides a perfect example of detached, seaside village living, seamlessly blending the best of modern living with some original features to provide a warm and inviting family home.
