Location: Newquay is home to many fabulous beaches, but easily one of the best is Porth situated approximately a mile and a half away from the main town centre of Newquay. A beautiful family friendly low-lying cove with a vast expanse of gorgeous golden sand, where you can always go to find your own space. Offering safe bathing, seasonal lifeguards, rock pools to play in, caves to explore, beachside pub/restaurant, and the mesmerising Porth Island where ramblers can walk the Southwest coastal path for miles.
Within an approximate 20-minute walk from Porth along the coastal path just before Watergate Bay you will find Trebulzue Farm; the annual location for Boardmasters music/surf festival, a 50,000-capacity music festival which is twinned with a wqs Surf competition held at the world famous Fistral beach.
Coastal living in Porth as a location, offers the best of both worlds, the feeling of being in and amongst it and away from it all at one and the same time. There are useful daily amenities nearby and it's within catchment for the best schools, so it's no wonder why Porth is one of Newquay's most sought after and exclusive locations.
Newquay is a "Cornish Gem" with something for everyone! Perfectly positioned on the North coast with easy access road, rail or air links, and a vibrant town centre full of independent and national shops as well as a great range of quality restaurants and bars that is consistently voted one of the UK's most favoured seaside towns and a top holiday destination.
Summary: Dracaena Palms is a totally unique and utterly enthralling detached family home offering style, space, potential and views in abundance. Individually designed by renowned local architect Charles Dart and built in the mid 1970's. It has a characterful split-level design in keeping with the period that includes breath-taking south facing beach views, brilliants size family accommodation and the most magnificent 30ft open plan living space with a gasp inducing triple height vaulted ceiling, all looking straight onto the view from a vast two-tier balcony.
Principally a three double bedroom home with opulent master suite, the vendor also sought planning under expired application number PA18/04951 (plans available via Cornwall Council's online planning portal) to vastly extend the property, although never completed, the plans show just the sort of further potential that may be on offer. As it stands the accommodation is perfectly suited to modern family life with a great balance of both indoor and outside living space, plentiful bathrooms and enough bedrooms for most. During the current vendors ownership there has been many improvements and upgrades, most recently quality replacement on trend Anthracite Grey windows to the front.
Briefly consisting of ground floor open faced large storm porch to the front entrance, stepping into the reception hall you are greeted by a beautiful original hardwood and wrought iron staircase that rises to the first-floor galleried landing that includes an ornate original feature hanging light fitting. On the ground floor there is access to an integral tandem style double garage and workshop, large enough at just over 30ft for 2 cars, but also a great space for "mancave" pursuits or family storage.
From the galleried landing there is access via an original thick glazed frameless glass door (such a wonderful 70's design feature) into the main living space. The scale of this open plan lounge/diner/kitchen is truly mesmerising; not only in length/width, but moreover in height, thanks mainly to the vaulted and sloping ceilings, which at the highest point measure nearly 18ft from floor to ridge. This is an incredibly rare design feature and not something seen in modern buildings. The room is neatly organised with a clear indication of the three purposes of the space. To the rear the kitchen has been upgraded with a sleek gloss finish white kitchen including some integrated appliances and spaces for more. The lounge/diner area is positioned to the front which is the biggest part of the room. Dual aspect with designer full height side window towering all the way up to the apexed ceiling, and framing the view perfectly replacement 18ft patio doors lead out onto a 36ft balcony with neat glass & polish steel balustrade. The balcony is south facing and a great relaxation space for all to enjoy, having the very best of the views directly onto Porth Beach.
From the living space there is access to an inner hall that includes a beautifully refitted and surprisingly spacious WC suite. A short flight of stairs rises up to the bedrooms. There are three double bedrooms on this level, including the master suite and additionally the family bathroom. Like the WC suite the ensuite and family bathroom have been beautifully refitted in a consistent contemporary style with full tiling. The bathroom has in addition to the bath suite a large double shower. Two of the three bedrooms are positioned to the front to incorporate the views, all three have been recently redecorated in calm contemporary stylings and two include quality fitted furniture. The master suite as expected has the best front position which also incorporates its own 19ft balcony. Within the suite there is an entrance dressing area, ensuite double shower room, light, bright and spacious bedroom with fitted furniture and patio doors to the balcony and view.
The property is sited on a particularly large plot. At the front there is a large driveway with enough room to comfortably park 4/5 cars. As the property is fully detached access is available on both sides. Directly behind the property is a sheltered patio with steps up to the largest part of the garden which also has the highest vantage to take in the incredible views. The top tiers of the garden are landscaped in a number of different ways including patios, borders, beds, seating areas and lawns. There are many highly useable areas, great for a relaxing BBQ with the family after a busy day on the beach.
What we love: Dracaena Palms enjoys an enviable grandstand position directly overlooking the beach from a sheltered south facing plot. Stepping out of the property and crossing the road means you will have sand between your toes within a minute or so. One of closest, finest beachside positions you're likely to find in Newquay and wow what a property!
