SITUATION
This beautiful property lies on the South West Coastal Path on the edge of the beautiful unspoilt village of Kingsand. The twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are set on the Rame Peninsula and comprise a multitude of old fascinating houses and cottages, many of which, including the subject property, overlook the sheltered bay. The villages are equipped with a variety of local shops, pubs and restaurants, together with a sailing club and other facilities.

DESCRIPTION
A truly rare and wonderful opportunity to acquire a beautifully elegant period home with significant love and care poured into its very essence by its current owners. Over the last 30 years our clients have carefully and thoughtfully renovated the property to the highest of standards offering a truly rare unrivalled wealth of priceless reclaimed features.
 
Penley Villa, formally known as the Glass House is the perfect coastal retreat set in the heart of Cornwall's forgotten corner in the centre of its own manageable plot. The residence is believed to date from the 1800s with beautiful Georgian features, flattered by its commanding and elevated position, which offers arguably the most spectacular views over the Plymouth Sound towards Dartmoor; over rolling countryside hilltops, whilst not forgetting the deeply pretty village of Kingsand itself.
 
This exceptional property offers a sophisticated living space encompassed within a practical family home. The principle reception and bedrooms face far reaching coastal views and as expected, all of the rooms are of grand proportions with a traditional lay out that has seamlessly been amalgamated with later editions to the property over the years. Penley Villa lends itself to a number of uses; primarily a family home, but would be a suitable candidate for a desirable coastal retreat which may lend itself to further opportunity in a commercial capacity.

ACCOMMODATION
Surrounded by lovely gardens and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on its doorstep. On crossing the threshold, a delightful vestibule welcomes you and this acts as a practical passage way from the original front entrance, which spans the full width of the property's frontage and navigates you to a glorious David Salisbury Sunroom, with far reaching views as far as the eye can see over the coastline of the Plymouth Sound and the rooftops of Kingsand.
 
The entrance hall leads to the principal reception rooms which offer the sense of perfect symmetry between the two rooms. The main reception rooms take delight in what is only the start of a wealth of character features this property has to offer, such as typically beautiful coving and architrave with roses that have been lovingly restored and recreated, complimented by stunning original antique fireplaces blended with delightful reclaimed insets, finished off by its vast timber windows which allow you to marvel over your surroundings.
 
The interiors are well laid out and flow from one light and airy room to another. The ground floor also consists of a spacious dining room suitable for dinner parties and hosting, whilst offering a degree of flexibility as it could be easily amalgamated with the main sitting room, once again depending on one's preference.
 
The kitchen is beautiful and offers a range of rare and interesting features. There is an original cast iron closed Cornish range which is in working order, complemented by another truly fascinating original Warner & Sons London Range. As for the day to day cooking there is a superb modern day gas Rangemaster.

As you step though this magnificent period kitchen you are met by true craftsmanship as the worktops and units have been lovingly handmade and fitted by our clients, whilst still allowing plenty of space for a large breakfast table and it is perfect for informal supper parties. The Kitchen floors have been claimed from Fort Dunlop in Birmingham England and enjoys a durable Dennis Ruabon Welsh Quarry Slate finish, open beams, a double Belfast sink. Handmade radiator covers add to the experience this truly delightful kitchen has to offer.
 
Step further though the kitchen and you are pleasantly greeted by what was the old greenhouse which now offers a spacious pantry and utility room. From the kitchen steps you are led to an integral gentleman's workshop which would be suitable for pets or a magnitude of storage options. From the hallway take the stairs down to the converted coal cellar which now is used as our client's office, but could very easily lend itself as a usable 5th bedroom if required.
 
The first floor is light, spacious and enjoys views from nearly every aspect with 3 double bedrooms and the master suite comprising of a double bedroom, dressing room and further flexibility to create an en suite in addition to the exceptionally fitted family bathroom.
 
The attic has been converted to offer a substantial 4th bedroom, which also benefits from en suite facilities. This truly staggering penthouse room offers a vast useable part of the grand square footage. This exceptional space is topped off by possibly the most commanding elevated view the property has to offer.
