Situated in attractive open countryside only 3 miles from several of the principal sandy beaches on the north coast popular with families and surfers alike. The Station Master's House is situated in a renowned agricultural district approximately 3 miles from the outskirts of Hayle which has active local community with social and sports clubs, excellent local shops, banks, schooling, health facilities, restaurants and pubs etc. Hayle has a mainline railway station on the Penzance to London Paddington line and a retail shopping park with a Marks & Spencer, Next, Boots etc which is a 10 minute drive from the property. Hayle is a major holiday resort in West Cornwall and is renowned for its 3 miles of golden sands from the Towans in the West to Godrevy Point, Gwithian Beach and Lighthouse on the eastern side of St. Ives Bay.

The Estuary at Hayle is renowned nationally as a birding area, a protected Nature Reserve, managed by the RSPB. The A30 at Hayle and at Camborne West provides easy access to the east of the County.

The harbour town of Penzance with its comprehensive shopping, health and education facilities is 11 miles distant and has a regular passenger ferry services to the Isles of Scilly. Camborne is 3 miles, Carbis Bay with its sheltered sandy beach is situated on the road into St. Ives and is 8 miles distant with St. Ives itself 9 miles distant.

Praa Sands and Marazion Beach are both within 10 miles and there are superb stretches of coastline with stunning clifftop walks within easy reach.

The Station Master's House is set back from the road and from many of the rooms within the property there are lovely far reaching views across open countryside. The property is ideally located within a rural yet accessible location just a short distance from most main amenities.

The house, we believe, was built in 1884. The present vendors have subsequently extended the property to provide four double bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities, excellent reception rooms and a very useful annexe with lounge/dining room, kitchen, double bedroom and shower room.
There is a large garden and ample parking for several vehicles. An area of the garden includes a section of the original railway platform and track/siding. In the garden there is a very useful studio/office with potential and a secure detached garage/workshop with access onto the lane. A separate gated access leads to the additional area of garden and ground which is fenced off from the main garden and was the former railway compound/loading area.

In all a unique property which, within the area, is a well-known landmark of some significance and most certainly requires a detailed interior viewing to fully appreciate all that it has to offer.
