"Superb accommodation - fabulous views! A lovely launch pad for days out".
(Visitors comment)

In brief, the accommodation comprises of an entrance hall, inner hall, lounge/diner and completing the ground floor a kitchen. Accessed from the half landing is a bathroom and an additional W.C. whilst accessed from the upper landing are two bedrooms and an office. From the office a paddle staircase leads up to the loft which has been converted and currently used as bedroom three.

The outside space is a real feature of the property and designed to take full advantage of the fabulous views. A raised terrace at the front of the property would seem ideal for alfresco dining and keeping a watch on harbour movements. To the rear of the property is a courtyard and behind this, accessed from Institute Hill, is a further area which we are advised is owned by the property and would seem to offer great potential.

Porthleven is a thriving seaside Cornish fishing village with its large harbour providing a focal point. Around this cluster many pubs, restaurants and businesses. The village provides amenities to cater for everyday needs as well as a primary school, whilst the more comprehensive amenities of Helston are a few miles distant and these include national stores, cinema and sports centre with indoor swimming pool. Situated between Helston and Porthleven is the beautiful Penrose Estate which is managed by The National Trust and where one may delight in the many walks and trails through the Cornish countryside around Loe Pool which is Cornwall's largest natural fresh water lake.
