THE PROPERTY

An exciting Coverack coastal property, ripe for modernisation and to be marketed for the first time in circa 52 years. An exceptionally rare opportunity to purchase a broad fronting, three double bedroom, two reception room, detached residence, now in need of modernisation, and enjoying utterly mesmerising elevated sea views, with the added benefit of an attached single garage and private gardens. There is no onward chain connected with this home.

This delightful coastal property offers spacious accommodation throughout, whilst located on an elevated setting, enjoying astonishing grandstand sea views over Coverack Bay. The impressive maritime sea views are constantly changing with passing shipping in the English Channel. This coastal home has been in the same family ownership since built in 1968, which has been much enjoyed and loved as a private family residence. The property will undoubtedly appeal to many discerning buyers seeking to place their own contemporary internal/external design on this property to further enhance it's sought after coastal position.

The property built circa 1968, is concrete block built with cavity wall construction, under a pitched concrete tiled roof, UPVC double glazed windows and warmed by an oil fired central heating system. We have been informed the home offers insulated cavity walls and the attic also has been well insulated.

Upon entering the reception hallway, doors lead off to the generous open plan living/dining room which enjoys superb sea views, and offers two sliding patio doors which open onto the front paved patio. There is also situated on the ground floor, a cloakroom, sitting room and the kitchen. A staircase ascends from the entrance hallway to the first floor landing where further doors lead off to three double bedrooms ( all with fabulous sea views ) and a bathroom.

The gardens are mainly laid to lawn complemented by mature plants, borders and evergreen hedging. The front aspect offers a paved patio where one can enjoy the extraordinary marine vista.

LOCATION

Coverack is without doubt one of Cornwall's hidden gems, tucked away on the southern part of the Lizard peninsula offering a stunning traditional granite built sheltered harbour and a fine sandy beach which is always popular with locals and tourists alike. The very traditional Cornish village has restaurants, gallery, general stores, hotels, post office and St Peter's church which nestles on the hillside. Echoes of a proud fishing industry remain in Coverack, where a cluster of nets, lobster pots and small fishing boats lie within the protective granite arms of the harbour. This part of the Cornish coastline is a haven for coastal path walkers who enjoy some of the most dramatic coastal scenery on offer within this unspoilt part of the Lizard peninsula. Much of the surrounding coastline and countryside is in stewardship of the National Trust and is an area of outstanding beauty. The South West Coast Path lies 100 metres or so from the property.

Drive into the centre of Coverack, and ascend School Hill, passing a converted chapel. The property can be found a short distance further up the hill on the left hand side where a driveway leads to the house and other neighbouring properties.
