Standing proudly in an elevated setting with panoramic sea views across Mounts Bay to St Michaels Mount and beyond is this stylish and individual detached three bedroom residence.
Arnscott House is situated in a tucked away, traffic free location, off a private lane and yet is moments from Penzance waterside and the town’s amenities.
Whether sitting in bed with a morning cup of coffee, relaxing on the lounge sofa, or sunbathing on one of the sun terraces, the magnificent Mounts Bay and iconic St Michaels Mount provide a mesmerising and comforting marine backdrop to this residence. With sea views to enjoy from the sun terrace, all front facing rooms and the roof terrace one is almost spoilt for choice and this, in part, is why this is such a unique and special residence, likely to appeal to discerning purchasers seeking either a bolthole, a holiday let investment or a permanent home.
One of the highlights of the property is the magnificent, light and sociable, open plan living space that encompasses the kitchen, dining area, lounge and sun room. The latter of these has a striking pair of bespoke, full height, glazed, sliding doors which invite the outside in and undoubtedly carry the ‘wow factor’. Both front bedrooms enjoy enviable views across to St Michaels Mount whilst sharing a roof terrace with elevated and far reaching sea views across Mounts Bay, to the Lizard, Penzance Harbour and beyond.
Outside the residence is cradled by mature and well stocked gardens which provide good degrees of privacy and seclusion. These are complemented by a fabulous sun terrace and decked area which would seem a perfect place in which to enjoy some al fresco dining.
Refinements include gas fired central heating, double glazing, and contemporary wood effect flooring throughout the principal downstairs rooms.
In summary the accommodation comprises an entrance porch, inner hallway, an open plan kitchen and dining area which leads into a further open plan lounge and a sun room. A utility room, cloakroom, wet room and rear conservatory complete the ground floor, whilst upstairs there are three bedrooms and a family shower room.
Strategically situated on the shores of Mounts Bay, Penzance is a vibrant and charming town with a pleasing range of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Home to the ‘Scillonian’ and the Heliport, Penzance acts as the main hub for regular ferries and helicopter flights to the Isles of Scilly. The town has a main line railway station and bus services. The Promenade is a lovely place to stride out and take in the sea air whilst admiring the views to Mounts Bay and the iconic St Michaels Mount. Along the Promenade is the outdoor, art deco, Jubilee Pool whilst Penlee Park and the sub tropical Morrab Gardens are also popular with visitors and residents alike. The fishing port of Newlyn is situated a short distance away, towards one end of the Promenade with the charming village of Mousehole to be found further along the coast.
“It’s fair to say that it was love at first sight for us when we came to view the property just over five years ago. As we walked up the steps, we turned around to be met by the glorious sea view of Mounts Bay and we instantly knew then that it was the one for us,” say the owners.
“The property needed an extensive renovation, so we went ahead with the work which included opening up the kitchen to create an open plan layout downstairs which is wonderful when we’re entertaining as we are cooking and socialising in the same space together. New glazing has been installed throughout and we raised up the patio area to be level with the house to create a seamless indoor / outdoor space through the bifold doors. We have embraced green technology wherever possible, such as the installation of solar panels and battery storage, as well as a Tesla charge point, so the property is very energy efficient.”
“Located just 20 minutes away from the popular seaside town of St Ives, we have enjoyed living here in this peaceful location as everything we need is easily accessible. We have some good shops and restaurants nearby, as well as scenic walks along the beach that is open to dogs all year round. There’s plenty to do here and local events to enjoy such as the Porthleven Food Festival and day trips to the Scilly Isles.”
“The garden is a sub-tropical paradise with a mature palm tree, orchids, and beautiful bluebells. It’s very private which is quite rare for a property of this size in this location, so it’s ideal for relaxing and entertaining. The garden becomes an extension of the lounge when we open up the doors in the summer and we’ve enjoyed numerous BBQs here with family and friends.”
“The balcony spans across two of the bedrooms and is certainly one of the standout features for us. We can use it all year round as it’s sheltered and it’s ideal for sunbathing, reading, and sitting with a cold drink just taking it easy. We watch the storms and sunny skies coming in across the bay and it’s the perfect spot to watch New Years Eve firework displays. The detached garage is another useful feature as it’s a really good size where I can store our car and motorbikes.”
