Tenure: Freehold

A very rare opportunity to own this substantial landmark Victorian detached house with seven bedrooms and set in the popular seaside village of Mullion on The Lizard Peninsula enjoying pleasant views over the Mullion Cricket Club field to the countryside opposite.

The house was reputed to be originally built by Viscount Clifden in the 1800's and in recent years was run as a licensed family hotel and restaurant but has now returned to its original use as a private home. The house has pleasing rendered and cut granite elevations which are complemented by a pitched dark slate roof and double glazed windows and box sash style. Packed with features including original architraving and solid wood floors in the main reception rooms, a superb double glazed conservatory across the front of the building, oil-fired central heating by radiators and sealed unit double glazing to the sides and rear.

The spacious accommodation in sequence includes an entrance porch, utility and cloakroom, walk-in laundry room, a lounge, a dining room, front conservatory, luxurious shower room/wc, kitchen and breakfast room, double bedroom with en-suite shower room and a small conservatory at the rear. On the first floor there are six bedrooms (two en-suite) and on the top floor a further bedroom with en-suite facilities. Outside the property there are raised gardens across the front and at the rear delightful well stocked landscaped gardens with plenty of areas to relax and entertain. To the right of the house there is a small lane which leads to a generous gravelled parking area for a number of vehicles.

Mullion is a popular and thriving village on the famous Lizard Peninsula and is well served with local shops, public houses, churches and a highly regarded comprehensive school. There is a picturesque cove and harbour not far from the property and the South West coastal path which runs around the peninsula. Some of the many attractions that can be found within easy reach range from Goonhilly Earth Satellite Station, Gweek Seal Sanctuary, Poldark Mine, The Helford River with its rugged coastline and beaches and further afield St Michaels Mount, Falmouth Maritime Museum and The Eden Project. The main A30 trunk road provides a fast routes into and out of the county with public transport at Truro Railway Station and Newquay Airport again within driving distance.
