Penare House offers a high specification interior, generous proportions and a hilltop position with sea views and convenient access to the beach and coastal footpath in the fishing village of Mevagissey on Cornwall's golden Riviera coastline.
It is a handsome property for large parties but equally great for couples looking to enjoy a romantic break.
Arranged over three levels the interior smoulders with an understated elegance.
Perhaps the most striking feature is the master en-suite bedroom with its ocean views, antique four poster bed and chaise longue or, if it is an atmosphere for entertaining, then the kitchen/diner which boasts a wood burner beside a farmhouse dining table, every conceivable appliance including a range cooker and doors to the enclosed rear garden equipped with a brick barbecue and patio furniture.
Adults can retire to the comfy sitting room and the warmth of an open fire in the cooler months and for children there is an entertainment room on the top floor equipped with a second TV, wireless broadband, hi-fi, games, books and a pair of tripod mounted binoculars.
Mevagissey village and harbour, which still operates a small fleet and pleasure boats, is a ten minute walk along narrow streets lined with fishermen cottages, old inns, restaurants and galleries.
Convenient for the beaches at Polstreath, Pentewan and Gorran Haven and within a 10 mile radius of the renowned Eden Project, the award winning Lost Gardens of Heligan, the exclusive waterfront town of Fowey and harbourside village of St Mawes.
Penare House caters exceptionally well for families and offers bespoke pricing for couples during the low season.
