In the small Cornish village of Gunwalloe, 500 yards from the dog-friendly beach is Chy Lowen, an impressive, newly built, New England-style semi-detached house.
Bright and roomy, with wood floors, the modern kitchen is a fabulous space for the family to get together.
Glazed doors look over patio and garden and fill the room with light.
Oak folding doors separate the comfy sitting room and can be opened to create one large open plan living space.
On the first floor are three bedrooms – a king-size double with a smart en-suite shower-room and lavish double cubicle.
A further double, and a family room with adult bunks and additional day bed share the family bathroom.
On the second floor, under the eaves, is a further large double with king-size bed and Velux windows.
At the back of the house the enclosed lawned garden with table and chairs is a great spot for simply sitting and taking in the far-reaching views across the fields and surrounding landscape.
Gunwalloe is part of the stunning Lizard peninsula and is close to great beaches, pretty villages and brilliant walking country.
