Property description

Tenure: Freehold

"39 years ago, we bought the Porthvean with our hearts because of its warm and friendly ambience – time has proved us right as it’s been a great place to live, bring up the children and run a business. Visitors love it too – right at the centre of things and within easy reach of everything else you might need."

Centrally located in one of the most popular villages in Cornwall is this large Grade II listed property which offers a myriad of opportunities. Currently the owners rent out the whole property for holiday let whilst living in a 2 bedroom adjoining apartment (included in the sale). Previously the property has been a hotel, restaurant and B&B, which given its location, was immensely popular in each of its guises. Having not been sold for nearly 40 years, this is a rare opportunity to purchase a very large property within the centre of this north coast village.

Entering the property the inner hall leads to a large dining room to one side, a breakfast room to another and a comfortable sitting room to the rear. Some of the walls of these rooms have been opened, exposing the original timber frames, giving a glimpse of the history of the property whilst simultaneously creating a more modern interior. The ground floor is tiled throughout for ease of maintenance. The sitting room features an open fire with stone chimney breast and a slate hearth. To one side is a bar area.

To the rear of the ground floor is a large kitchen which has been adapted from the commercial kitchen it started as in to a more residential kitchen. That being said, there remains a large stainless steel extraction hood, a pair of cookers, three microwaves, fridge and freezer and two sinks around a large central preparation island. Next door there is a large walk in storage area which could be used as a pantry.

Upstairs there are 7 bedrooms, 6 of which are en-suite. The rooms and bathrooms are all well-presented and have character with exposed stone walls, some sash windows and for those to the front of the building views over the steeple of St. Agnes Parish Church.

Additionally there is a games room & Hot Tub/Sauna room.

To the rear of the property there is a large decked area which is a sun trap enclosed on three sides by the property. There is a gravel parking area which has room for 4 or 5 cars in addition to the parking area to the front of the property.

The separate owners accommodation is to the rear of the house accessed from the drive. Steps lead down to the front door. An inner hall leads to a study or small second bedroom. The master bedroom is at the end of the hall and has a large en-suite bathroom. Upstairs there is an open-plan living area with a sitting room and adjoining kitchen.

The village of St Agnes benefits from a wide range of facilities including a doctors, dentist, primary and pre-school. Shops include butchers, post office, bakery and supermarkets as well as many others. The village boasts two excellent beaches at Trevaunance Cove (which is within walking distance) and Chapel Porth. St Agnes is 8 ½ miles from the Cathedral City of Truro which offers a further comprehensive range of shopping and school facilities at both primary and secondary level as well as a wide range of recreational activities and leisure pursuits. There is a mainline railway station in Truro connecting with London Paddington and an airport at Newquay with daily flights connecting to London Stansted and London Gatwick amongst other destinations.

From the A30 follow all signs to St. Agnes. Entering the village via the B3277, proceed without deviation into the centre of the village where the property will be found on the left hand side opposite the church.
