Situated in the heart of this increasingly sought after Cornish fishing village is this beautifully presented, four bedroom detached former vicarage. A substantial and imposing residence of much character, the property has undergone sympathetic and extensive renovation works in recent years, with the result being a wonderful home which combines period features with many refinements of modern living. Warmed by oil fired central heating, the property enjoys far reaching views over the village, encompassing the Bickford Institute clock tower, pier and out to sea. Situated at the rear of the residence is a delightful one bedroom annexe which is currently run as a successful holiday let or, should one be desiring a home office, this area could provide the location for the ideal work life balance.
The outside space is a real feature of the property with generous gardens, which are mainly laid to lawn, and cradle the main residence boasting well established plants and shrubs. The garden also has a pleasant summer house with a raised decked area, whilst to the rear is a good size garage with an inspection pit.
Porthleven is a thriving seaside Cornish fishing village with its large harbour providing a focal point. Around this cluster many pubs, restaurants and businesses. The village provides facilities to cater for everyday needs as well as a primary school, whilst the more comprehensive amenities of Helston are a few miles distant and these include national stores, cinema and sports centre with indoor swimming pool.
Situated between Helston and Porthleven is the beautiful Penrose Estate which is managed by The National Trust and where one may delight in the many walks and trails through the Cornish countryside around Loe Pool which is Cornwall's largest natural fresh water lake. Porthleven has a prize winning brass band which, on many a summerís Sunday evening, can be heard echoing around the village, creating atmosphere and ambience for both residents and visitors.
