Seahorses is an impeccable newly built waterfront house which has been finished to exacting standards and enjoys unrivalled views of the south coast. It has been meticulously designed with inspiring architectural interest and cleverly blends stunning interiors with the outside coastal landscape.

There is wonderful natural light throughout and sea views from almost every room. From the main entrance hall and games room, it leads into the fantastic open plan kitchen, dining room and sitting room, all of which have built in speakers for surround sound. The floor to ceiling glass windows/sliding doors and terrace wraps around the front elevation of the house and create a wonderful sense of space, light and connection to the outside. The generous dining terrace leads directly from the kitchen and is a wonderful place to use throughout the day. The striking tower at the southern end of the house provides a snug on the ground floor and office on the first floor.

The central stylish staircase to the lower ground floor leads to the bedroom accommodation comprising the principal bedroom with a luxurious en suite bathroom and dressing area, a further three double bedrooms, two of which are en suite, a family bathroom, utility room, plant room and a chic wine room. A second staircase is located within the tower and connects the ground floor cosy snug to the first floor office and the fantastic sundowner terrace.

Everything from the interiors, the appliances and external landscaping is all the highest specification and make this a true turnkey property. The house further benefits from CCTV, an alarm system, Ground Source Heat Pumps and underfloor heating throughout. Everything can also be controlled from your mobile device including lights, curtains/blinds and windows.

The landscaped gardens at Seahorses are a delight and complement the house perfectly. There is a lawn area, extensive terracing, a sheltered sundowner terrace and an abundance of colourful plants and shrubs which are well suited to a coastal garden. This idyllic south-facing garden has been designed to take full advantage of the setting, with outstanding sea views across to the iconic Pendennis Castle and St Anthony's Head Lighthouse.

The terracing creates a generous dining area and there are also several sheltered spots to enjoy the tranquil waterfront surroundings throughout the day. There is an outdoor kitchen and dining area, together with a sunken firepit and private direct access on to the South West Coast Path. There is a heated outdoor swimming pool views of the ocean and pool house, which could equally be used as a home office or additional accommodation. There is also a hot tub, ample parking, garaging and a garden store.

Seahorses occupies an elevated yet sheltered position conveniently located just 3.5 miles from the historic town and port of Falmouth. The Cathedral City of Truro offers a good range of both state and private schooling and mainline rail links to London Paddington. It provides excellent day-to-day amenities, independent shops, restaurants, coffee shops, bars, a cinema, art galleries and a newly refurbished theatre.

This part of South Cornwall is perhaps best known for the wonderful sailing and cruising out at the Helford River and the River Fal. There are deep water moorings in the Helford River and first-class yacht marinas at Falmouth. This area also has one of the most wonderful climates in the United Kingdom, ensuring some of the most spectacular gardens in the country including four of national repute at Trebah, Glendurgan, Carwinion and Penjerrick.

From the bottom of the garden and following the South West Coast Path, Seahorses is within walking distance of the beautiful beaches of Maenporth and Swanpool. Alternatively, for a quieter beach escape Nansidwell is only a short walk and offers the perfect secluded break. For the sports enthusiasts there are several golf courses in the area. In addition to river and sea fishing other water sports include windsurfing
and water skiing on the Helford Passage and in Falmouth Bay. It is also a convenient location to explore the coves of the Lizard Peninsula.

The transport links to south Cornwall are much improved, with the newly upgraded A30 dual carriageway just north of Truro providing access to the M5 motorway at Exeter and Cornwall Airport (Newquay).
