THE LOCATION Coverack is one of Cornwall's hidden treasures located on the East side of the Lizard Peninsula just 21 miles by road to Falmouth or 15 minutes from Helston.

Tucked away along a private lane away from traffic, Penmarth House is on an elevated position overlooking the village, harbour and coastline.

There is a real sense of community in Coverack. There is a village store supplying
every-day essentials plus local products, restaurants/cafes and pub, gift shops, visiting Post Office, a regular bus service and primary school. Regular events are held in the Village Hall or Church Hall including clubs and societies, exercise classes, art groups and film nights.
 

THE PROPERTY Such a prominent landmark building that can be seen from the harbour and sea. Built in 1927 from granite and other local hard stone, Penmarth House reflects the era with style and high ceilings. All rooms are a good size and all the bedrooms have en-suite facilities.

This spacious property and its annexe is highly suitable for family life (possibly 3 generations) either as a permanent home or for holidays and has potential for holiday lettings.

Outside, the main reception rooms have French doors opening onto a terrace. The garden (including a croquet lawn) is large and mainly to the front. There is plenty of parking, a rarity in a small picturesque coastal village, providing enough space for a boat plus lots of cars and a larger than normal garage/workshop.
