Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A part-built large modern home offering stunning panoramic views of St. Michaels Mount and Mount's Bay.

PROPERTY
This substantial house with magnificent sea views is partially completed. Watertight, with all internal and external walls in place and windows and doors installed offering a potential buyer to complete the build to their own specification and style.

Fully glazed southern elevations with reverse level accommodation offer fantastic sight over Mounts Bay.

Designed specifically to make the most of it's location the ground floor offers two en-suite bedrooms, a third bedroom and family bathroom, an office and study and a large utility room with adjoining shower room. (Please note the internal layout of the ground floor is subtly different to the attached floorplan).

A door from the utility room leads through a glazed hall into a large double garage with adjoining workshop. Stairs will lead up to a large room which has been designed to be a guest suite or playroom with an en-suite bathroom. For those buyers requiring a large studio or office this would be an ideal space set away from the main living areas of the house. Alternately the garage could potentially be converted to create a completely self contained, two storey annexe to the house (subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions).

The first floor has two very large adjoining open plan rooms - a kitchen/dining room with triple aspect glazing including full height sliding doors leading out to a balcony making the most of the views. a mezzanine which overlooks the entrance hall leads to a sitting room, itself with sliding doors out to the balcony. An adjoining smaller reception room is the ideal place for a home cinema. Outside, the balcony, which runs the full width of the house, has a bbq area which is set back under the protection of the roof line allowing all weather al-fresco dining!

Finally, stairs lead up to an enormous master bedroom which features a vaulted ceiling and a large picture window which perfectly frames Mounts Bay. The bedroom has a private terrace as well as an en-suite bathroom and walk in wardrobe.

This stunning house deserves to have it's interior completed to as high a standard as the exterior. The house is finished in a white Knauf exterior paint, with International Timber Thermowood, and has self cleaning double glazed windows with Schüco Aluminium Doors.

Rarely does an opportunity present for a home of this potential quality offering such outstanding sea views.

GROUND AND GARDENS
The property has a private driveway leading to a large parking area in front of the garages. The rest of the grounds aren't yet landscaped, however the plot is of a good size and is a blank canvas for a new owner. The mainline Railway runs past the house along the coast. The intended bank of solar panels and associated landscaping is designed to mitigate the impact of it's proximity at ground level.

UTILITIES
Planning permission (PA14/09309 ) has been granted for the construction of a bank of solar panels at ground level in front of the property shielded from the house by the planned landscaping. The property has a borehole drilled (not yet connected) and drainage is planned to a septic system (which is not yet installed).

SURROUNDING AREA
In front of the house lies a wide panorama extending from St Michaels Mount and Marizion to Carn-Du, Newlyn and Penzance and over the expanse of Mounts Bay where sparkling waters lap the sandy beaches. It is small wonder that it has been described as one of the top ten most beautiful bays in the world.

Nearby Marazion is an ancient settlement with small shops lining the narrow winding main street. Local facilities are good and include general stores, post office, parish church, junior school, pubs etc. Penzance (2 miles) is the principle town in west Cornwall and offers an excellent range of shops, public and private sector schooling and a main line railway station.

Leisure pursuits abound in the area and include golf at the West Cornwall, walking across the Penwith Moors or along the coastal footpath and water sports in the bay. The Mounts Bay Sailing Club is home to a wide range of boats of numerous classes and is described as one of the foremost sailing venues in the UK.
