LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION !!! FABULOUS SEA VIEWS. An amazing opportunity to purchase one of the Lizard's most unique south west facing coastal properties, enjoying astonishing, unobstructed and mesmerising sea views over the ocean to Lizard Point, the Lighthouse, and Housel Bay beyond. A large and stylishly renovated three/four bedroom, three reception room, three bath/shower room, detached period dormer residence, with the benefit of a detached one beroom ancillary annexe, garden, private parking, and garage.

This impressive and spacious Edwardian home was built circa 1910, located off a private drive, and is one of Britain's most southerly mainland homes. The property is bordered by National Trust fields, and within easy walking distance to the iconic Cornish footpath, Lizard village, and nearby coves.

The property has part painted/clad external rendered elevations, under a pitched slate roof (the front south west facing part of the roof has been replaced in recent years), UPVC double glazed windows/external doors, and warmed by a LPG gas fired central heating system. The home is further warmed during the winter months by an open fireplace situated in the living room. This property offers high ceilings synonymous with the Edwardian period, together with picture rails, a lovely period fireplace situated in the living room, and complemented by exceedingly generous accommodation throughout.

The front door opens into the sun room, which in turn leads to the inner hallway where doors lead off to the living room, two double bedrooms (where bedroom 2 has an en suite), study, bath/shower room, dining room and the kitchen with it's own access to the rear garden. A staircase ascends from the dining room area to the first floor accommodation, providing the master bedroom, further complemented by an en suite, and bedroom 4/dressing room.

Needless to say fabulous elevated sea views are to be enjoyed from the front facing rooms, and the master bedroom coastal vista on the first floor is nothing short of awesome!

The property also benefits from a beautifully renovated detached ancillary one bedroom annexe, which is situated in the back garden, and potentially could generate a lucrative income from letting, whilst conveniently providing privacy from the main residence.

The garden is mainly laid to lawn, planted borders with various specimen shrubs suited to the salty air environment, together with generous private off road parking, and a timber built garage suitable for storing a small car, and a shed.


The Lizard village is Britain's most southerly village, which has a thriving coastal community throughout the year, a local public house, junior school, shops, doctors surgery, garage, post office, galleries, restaurants, newsagent and church. The local area has some of the most dramatic coastlines the UK has to offer and is hugely popular with ramblers seeking this iconic destination. Arrive at the Lizard Green and one can walk west, south or east following the land until it stumbles into the ocean. Watch boats of all descriptions nearing the land and coastline, made safe by the mighty Lizard lighthouse which is a renowned landmark. From Kynance Cove to Lizard Point to Housel Bay and Church Cove, you will be thrilled by the spectacular marine views, much of which is under the protection of the National Trust.

The ancient market town of Helston which is the gateway to the Lizard peninsula is approximately twelve miles away and offers national supermarkets, senior schooling, sports centre and a general eclectic array of shops.


From Helston, proceed south on the A3083 signed to the Lizard. Upon entering the northern fringes of the Lizard Village, take the left hand fork signed Housel Bay. Just before the entrance to the Housel Bay Hotel, take the left hand turning onto the unmade lane, and the property can be found further down on the left hand side overlooking the sea to the right.
