Description Fabulously sited to make the most of the wide vistas across Praa Sands, St. Mary's is a stunning 3 bedroom former Roman Catholic church. Set within mature gardens the property is a fantastic family home or would make an ideal holiday let.

1 Having been converted in 2012 the property benefits from modern conveniences whilst retaining it's character and charm. Internally the focus of the home is the light and airy sitting room, with high vaulted ceiling, exposed trusses and timber panelled ceiling. A large picture window provides the perfect place to sit and enjoy the garden and views, separate sliding doors give access onto a south-facing patio and the gardens beyond.

2 Off the sitting room is a modern fitted kitchen with a range of appliances which has a wonderfully framed view of the garden and ocean beyond, whilst a separate conservatory provides a useful second reception room. At the rear of the property are two well-proportioned bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and a family shower-room, with stairs rising to a further bedroom with useful loft space and eaves storage. An additional WC and utility space complete the accommodation.

3 The property itself sits at the back of the plot and enjoys mature gardens with lawned areas and coastal planting. The driveway winds across the plot and provides parking for several cars.

4 Planning was approved in 2019 for alterations to create a garden room where the existing conservatory is and linking through to a large kitchen and utility room with master suite above.

Location The property is positioned on the outer edge of the village of Praa Sands close to the coast approximately half way between the towns popular of Penzance and Helston.
