An absolutely stunning and highly versatile four double bedroom residence set in a generous, south east facing plot of around a third of an acre situated at West Bay above Maenporth Cove.

Extensive parking/garaging. Generous lawned gardens with established well stocked borders enjoying a great deal of privacy.
Rathlin is situated in West Bay, a private road of just a handful of highly individual properties above Maenporth Cove enjoying incredible sea and coastal views as well as having direct access to the south west coastal path.

Maenporth Cove, only a short walk to the bottom of the hill, is one of Falmouth’s largest and safest sandy beaches ideal for bathing as well as offering a variety of water sports including canoeing, sailing, wind surfing as well as snorkelling and diving. The beach café is open most of the year whilst opposite the beach, The Cove Restaurant, is open all year round serving award winning lunches and fine dining into the evening.

Maenporth lies around a mile away from Mawnan Smith which has a thriving local community well served by a range of shops, post office, village primary school and The Red Lion thatched public house as well as the award winning gardens at Glendurgan and Trebah and the golf course at Budock Vean. The renowned Helford River with its many creeks and tributaries is also nearby offering moorings as well as direct access out to Falmouth Bay and The Carrick Roads - some of the finest and safest day sailing waters in the whole of the UK!

The colourful harbourside town of Falmouth lies around four miles away offering a comprehensive range of business, leisure and shopping facilities as well as a branchline to Truro.

The cathedral city of Truro is located approximately fourteen miles distant. It is the commercial hub of Cornwall offering a mainline station linking into the national Penzance to Paddington rail network. Newquay airport is accessible in around forty five minutes offering a wide range of domestic and international flights.


Originally a single storey residence, Rathlin has been transformed by the present vendor over recent years into a delightful, two storey contemporary home.

It is immaculately presented throughout providing versatile four double bedroom or alternatively three substantial bedrooms with an additional living room on the first floor enjoying the very best of the panoramic sea and coastal views.

There is always the possibility of creating a ground floor annexe if required as two of the bedrooms occupy the ground floor at the rear . These together with the existing hall and integral garage (which could be converted subject to planning permission and building regulations) could provide a spacious, completely self-contained apartment for a dependant relative.

The quality of workmanship throughout is extremely impressive, in particular solid wood floors have been laid as well as solid wood internal doors, a stunning comprehensive fitted high gloss kitchen has been fitted with a range of concealed appliances, finished with Askilan stone worktops as well as a separate utility room.

The property is fully double-glazed and oil fired central heating has been installed. There is a good size integral garage, fabulous 100 foot driveway/turning area.

Rathlin stands in around a third of an acre with extensive lawned gardens and well stocked borders providing a good degree of privacy.

A stunning contemporary home - one not to be missed!
