First time ever to the market. A wonderful elevated three-bedroom house in a superb coastal position with 0.85 acres of gardens and grounds.

The property is named of the Low-Lee Buoy in Mounts Bay directly in front of the property. The property was built in 1930 and remarkably has remained in the same family and, as such, is now available to the market for the first time.

The property has a remarkable panoramic view encompassing Penzance, The Jubilee Pool, Long Rock beaches, Marazion and St Michaels Mount with the Lizard Peninsula in the distance. A perfect position to watch the Newlyn fishing boats as they either sail out to fish or return laden to the harbour.

Steps lead up from the front garden to the central recessed front door with a small balustraded Verandah with space for a small table and chairs on either side of the door offering fabulous views out across Mounts Bay.

A glazed front door opens into the entrance hall with built in cloaks cupboard. A glazed panel and door then lead into the dual aspect sitting room which has a box bay window overlooking Mounts Bay. A door leads through into the second reception room/dining room which has box bay window overlooking the side garden. The dual aspect kitchen is off the dining room and has recently been refurbished with new grey Shaker style wall and base units and wood effect work surfaces. There is a built-in double over and ceramic hob along with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble drier and tall fridge freezer. A door opens into the rear porch which leads out on to a patio area and rear garden.
A corridor leads off from the second reception room/dining room to the three bedrooms and bathroom. Immediately to the left is the bathroom which has a walk-in shower and opposite a built-in linen cupboard. The back bedroom is the smaller of the three has a built-in wardrobe and overlooks the rear garden. The other two are good sized doubles. One has a box bay to the side of the property whilst the front bedroom is dual aspect, has a built-in wardrobe and a box bay to the front with views over Mounts Bay.

Gardens & the exterior

Low-Lee sits in an elevated position above Cliff Road bordered to the front by a hedge. There is pedestrian access via a metal gate on the right and by a driveway on the left. The driveway leads up to a large garage with sliding doors. There is parking on the driveway for 2-3 cars. The front garden is terraced with a large area laid to lawn with borders of mature planting. Steps on the left of the property lead up to another level where there is a workshop and lawned area. Behind this the garden slopes upwards leading up to the two fields which span the rear of both neighbour’s properties. Please note that the fields are currently overgrown and difficult to view, however the owner has photographs of them when they were just grass. Just behind the property is a small enclosed patio area which has plenty of space for a table and chairs and benefits from the evening sun.

Low-Lee sits on the cliffs between the town of Newlyn and Mousehole.

Mousehole is one Cornwall’s most loved harbours. Timeless and evocative of a bygone era, small streets and alleyways wind around the sandy harbour. Cliff paths lead in both directions along spectacular coastline to secret coves. Once referred to as “The loveliest village in England” by Dylan Thomas, Mousehole’s pretty stone cottages, fine restaurants, the famous Ship Inn, the Old Coastguard Hotel, Café and art galleries are clustered around the small medieval harbour.
Newlyn today remains a very vibrant place. Famous for both its historic and current fishing industry as well as the Newlyn School of Artists of the late 19th century which included such luminaries as Henry Scott Tuke, Alfred Munnings, Stanhope Forbes and Lamorna Birch.
Lying on the shore of Mount’s Bay Newlyn is one of the largest fishing ports in the UK. It lies adjacent to some of the richest fishing grounds in the Northern hemisphere and is the fulcrum of Cornwall’s fishing industry. The South West’s main fish market is in Newlyn and just opposite the harbour is good selection of excellent fish shops. Newlyn is also blessed with some great restaurants, café’s, bars, a specialist cheese shop, an excellent coffee shop, traditional Cornish Ice cream shop and an independent cinema.

The coastline around Newlyn & Mousehole takes in some of the county’s most beautiful beaches, to include Sennen, Porthcurno & Praa Sands. The historic town of Penzance just two miles away has a wide range of shopping and schooling facilities. Penzance railway station provides direct trains to London Paddington and the town is now host to several well-regarded restaurants and the recently refurbished Jubilee Pool.

The north coast is equally accessible with the town of St Ives a major attraction with its beautiful beaches, selection of high quality restaurants and its great shopping, not to forget the cultural experiences offered by Tate St Ives, the Barbara Hepworth Museum and the Bernard Leech pottery
