THE PROPERTY

An opportunity to purchase a spacious two double bedroom, two bath/shower room, first floor apartment, situated within a stunning historic Tudor grade II listed manor house of grand proportions and elegance from a bygone era. This beautiful apartment has full residential occupancy status, and the vendor enjoys the unrestricted seasonal use of the nearby holiday complex incorporating the indoor swimming pool, tennis court, restaurant, laundry facility and extensive sylvan gardens. This quality built apartment will undoubtedly attract a discerning retirement/second home/investment/'lock up and go' buyer wishing to reside within this residential/holiday setting, with all the amenities on offer.

Kenegie Manor is approached from the road, and passing through an impressive pair of granite entrance piers, and onto the tree lined tarmac driveway leading up to the residence. The external features of the manor house offer many character features including fabulous large stone mullion windows (complemented by external exposed quoins/sills and mainly fitted with double glazed windows) granite elevations and high ceilings which naturally create a light and vibrant ambience.

Upon entering the reception hallway, doors lead off to the generous double aspect living / dining room. A door leads from the living room into the well appointed contemporary galley style kitchen complemented by high gloss storage units, and various integrated appliances. Further doors lead to a bathroom, and two generous double bedrooms where the master bedroom offers an en suite facility. The apartment offers exceptionally spacious accommodation, and has been stylishly internally decorated throughout in a neutral colour scheme.

The manor house we have been advised was built circa 1530, and lavishly converted into quality apartments in 2006 by qualified architects, and to Building Regulation standards. The property has substantial granite external elevations, under a slate tiled roof, quality stone mullion window frames fitted with mainly double glazed windows and warmed by electric heating. Of particular architectural interest, the front and rear elevations of this distinguished manor house are equally impressive, and different in their external design. The gardens are enjoyed communally by the manor residents, where the front garden is mainly laid to lawn, and the exquisite rear sheltered garden offers beautiful planted borders complemented by a plethora of specimen plants, box hedging, seating area, and provides much natural colour through the summer months.

We have been informed by our vendor there is no onward chain.

LOCATION

The charming elevated quintessential residential village of Gulval offers a public house, post office and within a short drive to the bustling coastal town of Penzance with all its eclectic mix of shops, supermarkets, schools, port etc. The nearby coastal town of Penzance is noted for its elegant Georgian architecture, and overlooks St Michaels Mount which is naturally considered as Cornwall's 'jewel in the crown'. Penzance is served by an excellent railway station giving direct access to London/Paddington. St Ives is to the north, and offers superb restaurants, Tate Gallery and the Barbara Hepworth Museum. The ancient market town of Marazion which enjoys access to St Michaels Mount, and surrounding beaches is approximately six miles distant. This area of south west Cornwall offers the finest coastal scenery the UK has to offer, including sandy coves, surfing beaches, and the famous Minnack Theatre which has been carved into the granite cliffs whilst overlooking the sea. The Isles of Scilly can be reached either by ship from Penzance docks, or alternatively by fixed wing flights from Lands End airport.
