Description This single level detached property is a wonderful 2/3 bedroom home built in an elevated position that is perfectly situated providing panoramic and picturesque sea and rural views and within a short walk of the beach, public slipway and Pub. In recent times the property has undergone major refurbishment in many areas including a new roof, carpets and electrics to name a few things. Although this has the ease of single level living there is garaging for 3 cars and further garage storage in addition to the off street parking for two more cars on a level below the property. There is the convenience of a single person lift from the garage directly into the house making this ideal for buyers with mobility issues or simply to keep out of the rain when returning home.

1 The property is spacious for its size and yet offers huge potential for development with similar properties in the street having more than tripled in value after development. Internally there is a 27 foot conservatory across the front of the property and is a most pleasant place to sit and enjoy the fine sea views on offer while still allowing the light to filter into both the sitting room and master bedroom and it is also where the lift is located from the garage. The master bedroom is a generous double with en-suite shower room facilities and has sliding doors into the conservatory and also provides for delightful water views to wake up to in the morning. Similarly the dual aspect formal sitting room is awash with light and has both sea views and views of the field to the side of the property. Due to the 22' x 19' size of the sitting room a portion of this room has been used for dining purposes and a 10 - 12 seat dining table does not look out of place in this room.

2 The kitchen has a range of wall and floor mounted units and is large enough to accommodate a central island unit should it be refurbished. Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining room which the current vendors have used as a third bedroom due to the scope of the sitting room accommodating the dining table. The final bedroom is located to the rear of the property looking onto the rear garden. Completing the accommodation is the utility room with numerous storage units, space for a washing machine and dryer and sink. There is an external door to the rear and is useful for days out walking for boots, coats and or the dog on rainy days. Externally there is a quaint garden to the rear which has borders of shrubs and plants and is mostly laid to lawn.

Location Portmellon is a pretty hamlet with an attractive beach set on the western side of the picturesque fishing village of Mevagissey, which still has an active harbour and local community. The coastal port of Mevagissey has excellent sailing and fishing facilities and enjoys a variety of shops, boutiques, restaurants and local amenities as well as the South West Coastal footpath providing access to stunning walks with superb scenery along the Cornish coastline. The local market town of St Austell lies approximately 7 miles distant with its more comprehensive range of shops, schools, churches and mainline railway station providing access to London Paddington.

3 Newquay Airport is on the north coast providing links to London Gatwick in approximately 1 ½ hours and Stansted in approximately 1 hour. Close by are the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project. More comprehensive shopping facilities can be found 18 ½ miles distant in the Cathedral City of Truro.
