Full description

Tenure: Freehold

For sale for the first time in 20 years; a spectacular clifftop and beachside house, with five en suite bedrooms and outstanding views over Polurrian Point.

Location

At the very end of Laflouder Lane, Polbream occupies a prime position on its very own headland, Polbream Point, and facing south over Polurrian Cove, Mullion Island and out across the sea to the west.

Description

A triple aspect porch leads into a long, wide reception hall with beautiful oak flooring and joinery, and plenty of natural light from the atrium and galleried staircase.

The accommodation is generous and well appointed, and includes a stunning dual-aspect sitting room with a log burner as well as a separate dining room, both of which have generous ceiling heights. The kitchen-breakfast room has shaker-style cabinets, an island unit, AGA and a host of integrated appliances and enjoys a wonderful aspect towards the beach and the water. A porch off the kitchen opens out on to the full width south-facing sun terrace.

In addition there is an office/study with built-in bookcases, cloakroom and laundry room on the ground floor.

The bedroom accommodation comprises five en suite bedrooms, two of which are located on the ground floor. There is a generous master suite on the first floor with a walk-in wardrobe, bathroom and views over Polurrian Point.

The majority of the rooms have breathtaking views of the sea and coastline, there is beautiful oak joinery thoughout and many of the windows have shutters.

There are 5-amp lighting circuits, with telephone and television points in most rooms.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS

The house sits above a wide south-facing sun terrace and lower lawned garden, from which there is a gate on to the coastal path which leads down to the beach (with partial ownership). Above the house is a terraced garden with an array of plants and shrubs, a kitchen garden, potting shed, garden shed, and summerhouse with a marvellous view down the coast.

In addition to the formal gardens, Polbream owns the adjoining headland and SSSI land along the side of the valley.

There is a detached garage, and beside the house a greenhouse and outside shower, very useful given the property’s location above the beach. There is ample parking located close to the house leading down from the granite pillared entrance.

Additional Info

Cornwall’s unique character comes from its historic landscape, spectacular coastline and secret coves. The Lizard Peninsula
embodies these qualities, perhaps more than any other part of the county. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the peninsula is blessed with stunning beaches and crystal clear blue water for some of the best surfing, fishing and diving in the UK.

The peninsula’s western edge, from Porthleven to Lizard Point, is a Heritage Coast and the spectacularly rugged Southwest Coastal Path can take you all the way from Porthleven to the Helford River passing both remote and popular beaches such as Gunwalloe, Mullion, Pentreath and most notably, Kynance Cove. Where the west coast has beaches and coves for surfing and fishing, the more protected east side offers shelter from the prevailing winds; less opportunity to surf but more family orientated beaches like St. Anthony, Kennack, Coverack and, of course, the Helford River. Just three miles away, Mullion Golf Club is the most southerly in mainland Britain and
occupies a sensational setting above the cliffs between Poldhu and Church Cove.

Mullion Cove, with its historic stone harbour owned by the National Trust sits at the bottom of a lush valley below Mullion village itself. Polbream is at Polurrian Cove, which sits between Mullion Cove and Poldhu. Much of Mullion Head, above Mullion Harbour, is owned by the National Trust and is home to breeding colonies of kittiwakes, razorbills, guillemots and lesser black-backed gulls.

The town of Helston is home to some of the most admired period buildings in the county on Cross Street, and supports the Lizard Peninsula as a whole offering a wide range of shops and supermarkets. There are excellent primary and secondary schools at Mullion and Helston while further afield Truro offers a college and private schools. There are three universities in Falmouth.
