DESCRIPTION: Located with this hugely sought after harbour village, this property will appeal to those seeking residential development potential, as well someone looking for the opportunity to redesign and renovate a distinctive period property, and stamp their own mark.

Available for the first time in 40 years, this is a rare and unique opportunity in this coastal hotspot.

This Victorian former Gentleman's Residence is not a listed building and would make a fine, substantial family home on spacious grounds. There is a one bedroom self contained wooden chalet in the grounds and a variety of small stone outbuildings, and a large detached garage. The site extends to approximately ½ acre in total, which is rare in this popular location.

With Porthleven enjoying a very good level of new and repeat tourism, the property will also appeal to those looking for a holiday business opportunity, and could be returned to a guest house or B&B, or make an exclusive holiday rental. The property would lends itself to being converted into boutique residential apartments, and we would suggest that there is further scope (subject to planning permission) to site several additional residential units within the grounds.

Enjoying an exclusive and tucked away position in the centre of the old village, all local amenities are just a short, easy stroll away. Porthleven itself offers a cosmopolitan range of restaurants, cafes, shops and amenities together with it's historical harbour and picturesque seaside location and beach. Regular village events and annual food and music festivals add to the villages appeal and sense of community. Loe Bar, with it's natural wetland beauty, nature and biking trails is located within enjoyable walking / cycling distance. The market town of Helston located is just 3 miles away.
