An exceedingly rare and unique opportunity to purchase a beautifully presented four double bedroom, two bath/shower room, detached coastal home, offering well kept gardens, permissable parking, sea views, and a short stroll onto Porthoustock beach. This gorgeous coastal home has been the subject of much improvement over the years by our current fastidious vendors, and offers lovely light filled spacious accommodation throughout, where the internal decor has been painted in a neutral colour scheme.

The residence built circa 1923 has painted rendered external elevations, under a pitched slate tiled roof, complemented by terracotta ridge tiles, UPVC double glazed windows, and warmed by an oil fired central heating system. Our vendor has informed ourselves that the slate stainless steel pinned roof was replaced approximately ten years ago. The property is further warmed during the winter months by the solid fuel stove in the kitchen, together with the open fireplace situated in the living room.

Further external low maintenance features include plastic fascia/soffit boards, guttering, and rain water down pipes.

Another huge asset to this delightful home, are the well tended gardens to both front and rear aspects. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, and sea views are to be enjoyed from the front garden area, making an ideal place to dine out 'al fresco' style during the warmer summer months. A summer house, and a useful shed are to be found in the rear garden ( both with power and light connected ).

The home could be ideal for potential buyers seeking an income generated from bed and breakfast, as the house has the coastal Cornish footpath nearby.


Porthoustock is a gorgeous quintessential small seaside hamlet, tucked away at the bottom of a sheltered sylvan valley, and nestling onto the beach. In days gone by, it was always a productive small commercial fishing village community. Nowadays the village is a tourist attraction, and extremely popular with divers, sport fishing, and hikers who enjoy this spectacular off the beaten track location.

The nearby village of St Keverne ( about one mile away ) caters for every day needs and facilities including a shop, two public houses, health centre, church and primary school with comprehensive schooling being located at Mullion or Helston. The area is cradled by many beautiful coves and creeks with areas of outstanding natural beauty. The Helford is a short drive away with its majestic and renowned sailing waters.

Coverack, the next village on, 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. Within this very traditional Cornish village one will find restaurants, gallery, general store, hotels 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. There are quaint colour washed thatched cottages along a maze of back streets and lanes. 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.


From Helston, take the St Keverne road and proceed into the the St Keverne town square. Turn directly into Lemon Street which is signed 'Porthoustock' and descend on this road for about one mile which will lead into the coastal village of Porthoustock. The property can be found near the beach front, next to the old converted lifeboat house.
