Description This property is not like the majority in Gwithian Towans as approximately 15 years ago the current owners knocked down the original bungalow and re-built the property form the ground up starting with the brick foundations. Clad in Cape Cod timber makes not only an appealing look for its surroundings but equally is ideal for this coastal position. The property would provide a comfortable permanent home or second home with demonstrated tremendous holiday let income. The property is flexible in its layout with 3/4 bedrooms (master en-suite) as a generous house or could be split with one bedroom and sitting room having its own access. Currently the property is laid out with three bedrooms and two reception rooms with both reception rooms having tremendous sea views of St Ives Bay encompassing St Ives to the west and round to Godrevy Lighthouse in the north.

1 The quality flows through with solid timber doors, oak flooring and double glazing throughout. This very well insulated property is toasty warm year round which is perfect when coming back from those days at the beach with the family bathroom having a large walk-in shower for ease to wash all the sand off. The master bedroom light and airy and has en-suite bathroom room facilities with views over the fields to the rear. The kitchen is centrally located in the property and is fitted with a range of wall and floor mounted units with a stable door leading to the rear decking and delightful rural views. Externally there is a single attached garage which is ideal for storage for all beach items and parking agreed for 2 cars. The front of the property has a charming patio area providing the most outstanding sea views and is absolute pleasure to sit and enjoy a glass of wine on summer evenings.

2 The property is unique in the fact that unlike the many of the chalets within Gwithian Towans the property is freehold and can be used as a permanent residence with no occupancy restriction. Chalet should be mortgageable. In summary a fantastic opportunity to acquire arguably the finest beach chalet to be found in West Cornwall.

Location The beach at Gwithian is world renowned for its surfing and the property is perfectly situated for those wishing for their water sports to be literally on the doorstep. Despite its dramatic situation only minutes walk from the sea the property is close to numerous amenities with the popular café approximately 150 metres form the house, the nearby town of Hayle caters for most day to day needs. A short distance to the west lies the thriving harbour side town of St Ives which has an array of high quality restaurants and eateries, an assortment of national and local retailers alongside a selection of galleries and the world famous Tate St Ives.

3 The property has excellent access to the A30 being the main route in and out of the County which connects with the M5 at Exeter. There are main line railway stations at Penzance and St Erth the former offering regular trains to London Paddington with journey times from a little under 4¾ hours. Newquay Airport also offers regular shuttle flights to London Gatwick, Stansted and the recently established service to London City Airport.

Services The following services are available: Mains electricity, mains water supply, private drainage, electric under floor heating, broadband and telephone connection although we have not verified this.
