Sandpiper is a three-bedroom, reverse level house, with parking, located in an outstanding position in the sought after traditional fishing village of Coverack on the Lizard Peninsula.
Sandpiper is a reverse level three-bedroom detached house, which has recently been refurbished to a very high standard. The property is located in the centre of the traditional fishing village of Coverack on the Lizard Peninsula. The house, pre-Covid, was a very successful holiday let, however more recently has only been used by the owners.
The property can be entered on both levels. The ground floor entrance is under a glass porch canopy and leads to a stone tiled hallway. There are three double bedrooms, one has an en-suite bathroom and two with built in wardrobes. There are two further bathrooms, one with a free standing bath and the other a large walk in shower with the latter also being plumbed for a washing machine. There is also a cupboard which contains the boiler.
Stairs lead up to a bright and open dual aspect landing. Off the landing is the door in to the main living area and to a cloakroom. Here the upper entrance door leads out to the west facing rear seating area. The open plan living area is a triple aspect room with oak-effect karndean flooring. The “L” shaped kitchen and large central island have modern white “Shaker” style base units. Appliances include a built in microwave and dishwasher, free standing range style oven with 5 ring hob and space for a large American style fridge freezer. There is ample space for a large dining table and in the living area there is a wall mounted modern flame effect electric fire. The key focus of the room is the large 4 panel bay window with window seat which has panoramic views out across the village to North Corner, the beach and the English channel beyond.
Gardens & the exterior-
Front & Side:
A concrete and gravel driveway leads from Chymbloth Way to the front of the property with parking for 4+ cars. The entrance is bordered to the left by mature plants to include Bay, Agapanthus, Fuchsia and palms. To the side of Sandpiper is a private entertaining area, bordered by a Cornish hedge with mature planting. There is a large storage shed built under the upper rear terrace.
A footpath to the side of Chymbloth Way leads up the hill to the 1st Floor entrance to the property. To both the left and right of the door are seating areas, perfect for a bistro style table and chairs to take advantage of the evening sun.
The Lizard is renowned for its beauty and spectacular landscapes, with much of the area designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The countryside and coastline are famed for their varied animal and plant-life, geology and history, while the climate on the Lizard is often milder than the rest of the country. Once the haunt of smugglers and wreckers, Coverack is a beautiful example of a traditional Cornish fishing village, where the houses hug the curve of
the bay. A thriving village, it has a well-regarded primary school, shop, church, pub, restaurants and cafes. There are two beaches in the village, Mill Beach in the bay and Porthbeer Cove to the west, overlooked by Chynalls Point (an iron age fort), on the South West Coast Path which passes
through the village. Coverack is recognised as a water sports destination, with excellent facilities for windsurfing, diving and paddle boarding, as well as pleasure fishing. Sailing and mooring facilities are available on the Helford river and there is a challenging links golf course at Mullion.
Locally, the village of St Keverne provides a post office, two pubs, butchers, local shop, church and a nationally recognised ice-cream parlour at Roskilly’s, where there is also a craft centre, restaurant, gallery and animal area. The market town of Helston has a wide range of shopping and schooling facilities, whilst the cathedral city of Truro, approximately 25 miles away, is the municipal centre of the county. Travel links to the area are good, with Coverack being served by wide roads and the A30 providing dual carriageway access through Cornwall from the M5 at Exeter. There are mainline railway stations at Redruth and Truro and Cornwall Airport (Newquay), is an hour away.
