Beautifully renovated and enlarged house situated at the end of a quiet close within easy reach of the charming and historic Porthleven harbour.


Hammillls close is a lovely street in which to live; it is very quiet and the people are friendly. It is wonderful to have both sea and countryside views too.

We are lucky to be in walking distance of the restaurants and entertainment in the village if wanted.


This attractive home has been comprehensively extended and improved by the current owners. Starting as a two bedroom bungalow, the kitchen was reconfigured into what was the garage creating a good sized kitchen/dining area.

To create further living space the owners converted the loft creating a large master bedroom, family shower room and a good sized sitting room. The layout of this space could easily create a fourth bedroom with the insertion of a simple stud wall and doorway. As it is however the upstairs sitting room works well as a media room or quieter living space to the family sitting room downstairs.

To the front of the house is a low maintenance gravelled garden area with Cornish Palm trees and a secluded patio to one side. The single drive offers private parking and there is also parking at the end of the close which, while not designated, is accepted as parking for the house.

Entering the house through a recently added front porch an inner hall gives access to all of the ground floor rooms. The Kitchen has a range of cream shaker style kitchen cabinetry with a granite effect worktop. The kitchen houses a double oven, induction hob with stainless steel extractor hood over and a built in dishwasher. There is space for an American style fridge freezer near the dining area and there is ample worktop space including a breakfast peninsula. Two very large picture windows bathe the room in natural light and offer superb views over the town and to the countryside beyond. The dining area provides room for a 6-8 seat dining table. The kitchen has engineered oak floors and these continue into the sitting room - indeed throughout all of the living areas of the house. The living room overlooks the rear garden with a picture window and a large French door opening to a patio area to the rear of the house. The sitting room is of good size for a family with easily enough space for a couple of couches.

There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor. Both of which are carpeted and one of which has its own French doors opening to the rear garden.

There is also a fully tiled family bathroom on the ground floor with contemporary white sanitaryware.

Upstairs there is a good sized sitting room with large Velux windows in the pitched roof. From here there are glimpses of the sea and harbour. Despite the pitched roof there is good head height in both this room and the new master bedroom. Cleverly integrated drawer units within the eaves proved storage as do the built in wardrobe and eaves storage cupboards.

Should a fourth bedroom be required, the upstairs sitting room could easily be converted with the addition of a stud wall and private door to the room.

Throughout the house white and cream coloured walls are natural and light and the house is presented to a very high standard.

The rear garden offers a lawned area bordered by mature plants and shrubs. There is a raised deck area large enough for alfresco dining. A door to the rear of the house provides access to a useful utility room.


The home is at the end of a quiet close located above the town. It is very easily accessed. Just around the corner is Top Park, a large green with a small children's play area - ideal for walking dogs or fun with the family.

Porthleven town exudes Cornish charm and tradition. Set in the middle of a huge sweeping bay. The town has one of the most impressive picturesque fishing harbours in Cornwall. Being constructed during Napoleonic times with the aid of French prisoners of war. Due to the conservation measures it remains an unspoilt, working harbour with small fishing boats landing their daily catch in the harbour, much of which is sold in Porthleven cafes and restaurants and the award winning Quayside fishmongers. In the town you will also find galleries, shops and a great range of cafes, restaurants and inns. Porthleven beach is unspoilt and uncommercialised and is separated from the harbour and all its facilities by a magnificent granite pier which was constructed two hundred years ago. Around the harbour there are historic buildings, many constructed at the same time as the harbour around 200 years ago. There are many fishermen's cottages and net lofts which are located around the harbour and beach areas.


The property is heated with oil fired central heating and is connected to mains water and drainage.
