The Property - A truly 'once in a lifetime' opportunity to purchase an impeccably presented south west facing, detached marine residence offering exceptional light filled accommodation, whilst enjoying some superb sea views and only moments away from the iconic Praa Sands surf beach. The property offers spacious, and extremely versatile accommodation throughout including six double bedrooms, three reception rooms and three bath/shower rooms. The residence could lend itself to a variety of uses subject to any necessary planning consents (the home has previously been used as a bed and breakfast business). The property enjoys an elevated setting, and offers valuable private off road parking facilities to accommodate six cars with direct access onto Trewelloe Road. The residence has been fastidiously maintained and improved upon over the years by our vendors, and now offers the chance for a discerning purchaser to acquire this beautifully presented home. The property has been stylishly internally decorated in a neutral colour scheme, and further enhanced by the light and airy ambience, naturally provided by the large south west facing windows. The house has painted rendered external elevations, UPVC double glazed windows/external doors, under a pitched tiled roof and warmed by a LPG central heating system (we have been advised by our vendors that the combi boiler was installed approximately two years ago). The home is further warmed during the winter months by two multi fuel stoves located in the living room and kitchen. Further external low maintenance features include plastic fascias, soffit boards, guttering and rain water down pipes. The attractive south west facing front garden is mainly laid to lawn, together with established stocked borders offering a plethora of specimen shrubs, palms and flowering borders naturally providing much colour throughout the summer months. A sun patio is to be found at the front of the house which makes an ideal place to dine out 'al fresco' style whilst enjoying the marine vista. There are also two substantially built timber storage sheds at the property, together with a covered log store which also incorporates the LPG bottles which fuel the central heating. Outside water tap and lighting connected.

Location - Praa Sands is an immensely popular surf, bathers and walkers beach with golden sands stretching for a mile along the southern coastline from Rinsey Head to Hoe Point. To the east and western side of the beach there are dramatic coastal footpaths to enjoy, and rightly considered as some of the very finest the UK has to offer. Praa Sands is almost equidistant between the market towns of Helston and Penzance where the latter has a direct rail link to London's Paddington station with a journey time of approximately five hours. Praa Sands village has a post office/stores, a good golf course, waterside pub, bus route, tourist beach car park and an excellent general store supplying household items.
