Open plan Cornish retreat

Our home may look modest from the outside but we have renovated this 1970’s bungalow into a modern open plan living space, nicknamed ‘The Tardis’.

The entrance hall leads to an open cloakroom and two children’s bedrooms, one with en-suite toilet and shower room and a single framed bed with girls styling, and the second bedroom with a European sized single bed in a boys room.

Beyond this a open plan L shaped lounge with log burner, tv, kitchen and dining area. From here you can access the garage into the utility room (extra freezer, tumble dryer, washing machine) we are all very sea based so unless we need them there will be surfboards and bellyboards to be able to use.

There are double doors to the back garden from the main living area and another door to the master bedroom and en-suite bathroom with bath, shower and toilet.

There are front and back gardens, the back garden has a washing line and a trampoline.
The driveway will have room for 2 x cars from May.

Our house is a short walk to the beaches and harbour of Porthleven. In the Winter we have one of the best places in the UK to watch the storms rolling in as well as great food and beautiful walks around Penrose and Loe Bar. In the Summer we have a quiet street with easy parking and too many beaches and walks to mention but we are always happy to advise if need be. For those interested in surfing, its a destination for experienced surfers at the Reef here but with plenty of high quality beach breaks nearby.

Please note no pets allowed as one of us has an allergy. And no dishwasher!
