A fantastic opportunity to acquire this elevated coastal home on a select and sought after address with breath taking sea views out across St Ives Bay with parking and garaging.
The property is a reverse level three-bedroom house built on the hillside overlooking Carbis Bay and has been used as a holiday home for the vendor as well as an extremely successful holiday let. Steps lead down from the parking area to the entrance. The front door opens into a lobby with plenty of space for shoes & coats. Two doors lead off the lobby, one to a cloakroom and the other into the upper floor of the house. This is large bright vaulted room with exposed beams with doors leading to the kitchen/diner, the balcony and steps down to the sitting room. This area is currently used as a music/playroom but would also make a great dining room as the large kitchen diner is to the right with wooden base and wall units with a built in Fridge/Freezer & Double oven, Gas Hob, Dishwasher and space for a secondary fridge. Views out of the window across to Carbis Bay will make washing up a pleasure! The glass panelled balcony has superb views and space for a “Bistro” style table & chairs. The triple aspect sitting room has a large window offering panoramic views out over the bay, a painted brick chimney with flue for a gas fire (if required).
Stairs descend from the upper floor to a half handing off which are two bedrooms and the family bathroom. Both bedrooms are a good size and have built in wardrobes. One is currently configured with 2 bunk beds and the other has a king size bed, the latter having views out over the bay. The family bathroom has travertine flooring, separate bath & shower. Steps lead down to the lower landing off which is the principal bedroom and a doorway leading out onto the garden and paved terrace. The dual aspect principal bedroom has a large panoramic window, as the sitting room, offering wonderful views out across the bay, a large built in wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom with large walk in shower.
Gardens & The Exterior
The property has parking for two cars with steps leading down from the parking area to the main entrance to the house. Further steps lead down to the rear garden.
