Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Ethy is a very special property for a discerning buyer who seeks a home of considerable privacy with style and luxury in private gardens yet with plenty of ancillary accommodation perhaps for additional family members and/or guest house use. The property was originally built in the mid 1960s and won a design award. The reverse layout of the accommodation was designed to maximise the extensive views towards Carlyon Bay Golf Course to the south which is set on the edge of the cliffs above the Cornish Riviera and the south Cornwall coast and the property is set just under a mile to the south from the sea at Carlyon Bay and just over a mile to the north from the world renowned Eden Project. The property is also a short drive from the large town of St Austell with its extensive facilities including the mainline railway station linking Paddington to Penzance.

The versatile layout of the property means that the main residence not only has three luxurious bedroom suites on the ground floor all with well appointed bathrooms but in addition a two storey and self contained suite with separate access from the exterior as well as interconnecting to the main accommodation on two floors and as shown on the plan as bedrooms four and five with a further two bathrooms. Externally there is a detached annexe which houses two further double bedrooms both with high quality en-suite bathrooms and w.c.'s and with bedroom seven also having a lounge and kitchen area. Also within this block is a separate laundry room.

The standard of landscaping to the beautiful gardens and surroundings must be viewed to be appreciated.

The property is approached through wrought iron and electrically operated gates with lamps set in pillars to each side and then over the tarmacadam drive with screened trees for privacy on each side. At the top of the drive this then opens onto the very large car park areas finished in granite chippings and also extending to the side and rear of the property. There is a laundry room to the rear of the house with double doors to the front and a side door 8'9" x 7'8" with plumbing for automatic washing machines and plenty of space for a freezer etc. The garden to the rear is well enclosed by mature hedges and trees and screen conifer hedging from the property above and steps then lead up to this area with open fields at the back. There is then a further drive beautifully finished with chevron pattern brick paving leading down to the double garage block and also to one side to the extensive areas of terrace beautifully finished with granite effect slabs and with wooden handrails surrounding. All areas here are finished with neat white rendered walls with wide cement caps above and matching steps then leading down to the swimming pool which is provided with a cover and is heated and has a filtration unit. There is inset floor spotlighting and a pool cover. The front and side gardens are well screened with vertical close boarded high fencing for privacy and to one end is a timber building housing the filtration plant.

The very large detached garage building is of substantial concrete block cavity wall construction and is approximately 26' wide x 22' deep. There is a double glazed side window and inset double glazed side door and the approach is most attractive with a mature conifer well protected by low surrounding walls and chippings and with the drives then on each side leading to the garage door openings. The garage is now nearing completion and at the time of inspection the garage doors have yet to be installed.

The property is approached through the spacious entrance hall with wood effect UPVC front door with most attractive inset glazed panel, a door into a walk-in cloaks cupboard with electric meter cabinets housing the 3 phase meter systems.
