A large, contemporary family home, of individual and sophisticated design, in one of Cornwall’s most popular villages.


Built in 2009 of cavity block and slate construction, with feature slate hung upper storey, Pen Breta gives the impression of conforming to traditional Cornish country house design. However, on discovering the details of the technology within this house, that impression is quickly dispelled.
Entering the double doors into a light filled foyer, the generous space and the use of sumptuous materials and fittings immediately impress. An opulently wide hall, welcoming with its warm tones of walnut flooring and underfloor heating, opens to the open plan kitchen/living/ dining room, extraordinarily spacious and beautifully set out.

At the dining end, naturally lit from above with an orangery style glazed roof, bifold doors open the whole width of the room to the west facing barbecue patio, perfect for entertaining. Several people can be seated at the external and internal dining tables and the kitchen gives the impression of being able to meet the task. The streamlined aesthetic of pale fitted cupboards, with integrated Bosch appliances (induction hob, two ovens, microwave oven and warming drawer) and dark granite worktops, is entirely practical as well as very attractive. A wide island and breakfast bar separates the kitchen from the central seating section of the room with its unnecessary, but visually comforting, inset convector fire.

The well organised utility room has two walk-in cupboards, one used as a larder, the other for coats, and beside the back door a wc and washbasin, and a door to the double garage.

Across the hall from the open plan living room, through double doors, is an elegant drawing room giving a lovely view over the south facing lawned garden from its wide bay window. Patio doors open here and to the side onto the wraparound terrace. A Scan wood burner is set into a traditional hearth. The warm atmosphere is enhanced by the rich tones of the engineered walnut floor and tasteful décor.

Continuing along the hall there is the first of the bright, pleasant rooms that are currently used as home offices, but both could easily be adapted to double bedrooms. They overlook the garden and benefit from the south facing aspect with the second one having patio doors opening onto the terrace. Beside this room is a spacious cloakroom that has been fully plumbed to provide a downstairs bathroom if required.

At this end of the hall there are two walk-in cupboards, one for storage, the other is the data hub with the technology that provides ethernet wired internet throughout the house and houses the Rako lighting control system. For example, the open plan living room has multiple lighting circuits managed in four lighting scenes from the wall switches or voice assistant, which are fully configurable via a phone app. Similarly, the zoned central heating is controlled by smart thermostats or phone app. The technical specification of the systems in this house is sophisticated and works very efficiently, responding to requirements in individual zones.

A bespoke solid walnut staircase turns to the upper floor, where there are three bedrooms and a bathroom and two shower rooms. The first spacious guest suite is double aspect, overlooking the west garden and fields, with a Juliet balcony. It has a dressing room (currently a gym) and shower room.
The family bathroom is beautifully tiled and has low level LED night-time lighting, with a double width spa bath as the main feature.

Next is the principal bedroom suite, beautifully appointed with an abundance of natural light from east and south facing windows, including a Juliet balcony overlooking the front garden. A dressing room is adjacent leading to an ensuite shower room, very spacious and attractively tiled.

The third double bedroom is another very pleasant, spacious, dual aspect room with views over the garden and open countryside.

Pen Breta is abundant in good features, the most obvious being space and light. There are also design details that add to comfort and convenience, such as concealed, electrically controlled blinds; entry cameras controlled by an app; feature lighting and high-quality fixtures and fittings throughout the house.

A double garage is entered from the house via the utility room. The near wall accommodates the ground source heat pump and controls for wet solar panels.
Alongside is a separate single garage, both having electrically operated doors. The electrically operated double entrance gate also benefits from a security camera.
A pedestrian gate opens onto the paved steps that fan out to a wide terrace, a pleasant space from which to enjoy all day sunshine. The expansive lawn is edged with mature shrubs and trees. Of note is the copper beech that is such a pretty display in full leaf.

Paving continues along the side to the barbecue patio which, as mentioned, is well placed for enjoying summer evenings.
The setting of Pen Breta is private and peaceful, surrounded as it is by its own sizeable garden and various flowering shrubs and tall trees. Yet the centre of the village is a short walk away, with all village amenities conveniently close.


St Tudy is a picturesque village situated between Bodmin Moor and the Atlantic coast. In the centre of the village, surrounded by charming, traditional cottages, is the beautiful parish church, dedicated to the 6thc. saint who also founded monasteries and churches in Brittany. Adjacent, is the primary school and just around the corner the popular St Tudy Inn.

The recent success of the community shop is testament to the very strong sense of belonging and commitment which is noticeable and often commented on, in St Tudy. The hall with its many clubs and societies, the Methodist chapel and The Clink (a cosy refuge for crafters and coffee mornings) are also at the heart of this vibrant village life. (See the St Tudy website for the range of activities welcoming participation).
