Sat high above the magnificent surfing beach that is Mawgan Porth with fabulous far reaching ocean views is Greenacres, a detached cool coastal home individually styled throughout to create a unique, funky home full of natural light and comfort. With three bedrooms in the main house, Greenacres Apartment is a self contained one bedroom annexe adjoining offering excellent opportunity to generate an income or accommodation for a dependent relative.
Greenacres stands at over 1800 square feet and the current owners have put a unique stamp on the property during their ownership. Noteworthy features include the striking black timber cladding, stripped wood floorboards, two sided wood burning stove, driftwood detailing, contemporary bathroom and sleek gloss white kitchen. The layout of the property has been thoughtfully arranged to make the most of the magnificent far reaching views of the North Cornish coast with the kitchen/dining room and living room benefitting from patio doors leading out onto the expanse of raised decking.
Greenacres is of two storey design with one bedroom on the ground floor and a further two on the first floor. A secret door in the living room interconnects the main house to the annexe, giving the accommodation versatility. The annexe itself has a double bedroom with built in wardrobes, stylish shower room, open plan kitchen/living/dining area and a private deck and small lawned garden.
To the front of the property is a tarmacadum driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles. There is also secondary parking to the rear of the detached double garage, which sits adjacent to the property.
To the rear of Greenacres is an impressive raised decked patio area running along the full width of the property, affording far reaching sea and coastal views. Steps lead down to a good size area of lawned garden with established hedge boundaries and garden shed in one corner. There is storage space beneath the decking. Separately and privately, the current owners have created a firepit and BBQ area - enclosed with fencing and sea sand underfoot. We understand Greenacres to be built of traditional concrete block cavity wall construction with UPVC double glazing throughout. There is potential to extend upwards with relevant planning permission. Services to the property include mains water, electricity, gas and drainage.
Greenacres sits just above the magnificent sandy beach and roaring ocean of Mawgan Porth, now one of the most sought after locations in North Cornwall. The vast sandy beach is famous for water sports activities serving surfers and bathers alike with stunning cliff and coastline walks. Fine dining is available locally at the award-winning Scarlet Hotel as well as first class spa and recreational facilities on your doorstep at The Scarlett & Bedruthan Hotel. The bay provides a range of amenities including a local store, cafes, various eateries, The Merrymoor public house, surf school and gift shops.
