Circa 350 yards to central Portscatho and harbour is this impressive detached residence with stunning sea views sitting in a prime position on a ‘no through road’ with off road parking, garage and large garden. This home has been successfully holiday let over the years providing a lucrative income but would equally suit those looking for a permanent home in this extremely popular Roseland village. The views are breath-taking with 180 degree views stretching from Porthcurnick Beach, across to Gull Rock and across to Portscatho harbour with far reaching expansive sea views, a view you will surely cherish for years to come. These views can be enjoyed from the principle rooms on both floors and also from the raised sun terrace decking area, a perfect place from which to enjoy the views.


Inside is spacious, with large rooms and an airy feel with plenty of natural light coming through. The downstairs has an ‘open plan’ feel but has glass doors should you wish to close off the kitchen area. The kitchen is well equipped with built in appliances and plenty of worktop space and there is also a bay style window to sit in and enjoy the wonderful views, whatever the weather! The living room has a cosy feel with log burner and soft furnishings. A door leads out to the raised decking area for alfresco dining. Behind the kitchen is a useful utility room with a side door to the outside. There is a downstairs W/C on this level and also the huge benefit of an integral garage. Subject to permissions this could offer further accommodation space or a studio space or for those wishing to work from home, a perfect office potential.


Upstairs on the first floor you will find three double bedrooms. The two main bedrooms located to the rear enjoy stunning 180 degree coastal and sea views. The main bedroom has a beautiful en-suite shower room and built-in wardrobes. There is also the main family bathroom located on this floor and the landing is spacious with plenty of built-in storage cupboards and space for a desk for home-working.


To the front there is off road parking and some mature shrub area, parking is a huge bonus for this popular village. You can access the garage from the front as well as from inside the home. Side access brings you around to the rear which enjoys an expansive rear garden which is mostly laid to lawn and there is a raised decking area. The garden
enjoys stunning sea views out and gardens of this size so close to the centre are hard to come by.
Overall this is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a well loved detached residence with incredible sea views in this extremely desirable village within the Roseland Penisula.
