A beautifully presented waterside home set in a frontline position enjoying panoramic views over Mounts Bay. 2 Reception rooms, spacious conservatory, contemporary kitchen, utility, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. Parking, workshop and terraced garden.
Thought to have been constructed in the 1930s, Trevona stands in a magnificent 'grandstand' coastal position commanding panoramic unobstructed views across Mounts Bay.
Set on the northern edge of the village, the picturesque stone harbour, restaurants and eclectic selection of shops are all within walking distance. Mousehole retains an unspoilt character and has a rich and colourful history. Stargazy Pie is traditionally served on Tom Bawcock's Eve (December 23rd) in memory of the local hero whilst the well-known Christmas lights are erected every year in and around the harbour.
The property is also ideally positioned for access to the magical West Cornwall scenery with its mixture of sandy beaches, rugged coastline and wide expanses of open countryside.
Mounts Bay is perhaps best known for St Michael's Mount where a causeway once walked by pilgrims leads to the island at low tide, and the tower and battlements of the castle rise to a height of almost 230 feet above sea level. Still occupied by the St Aubyn family, the castle and gardens are open to the public.
Within a few miles is the harbour town of Penzance, which now forms the commercial centre of the Lands End Peninsula and offers a mixture of restaurants and galleries. There is also a mainline railway station which connects to London Paddington.THE PROPERTY
Trevona has been a loved and well-maintained family home and is now offered for sale for the first time in around 15 years. Standing in an elevated position, the majestic views encompass wide expanses of Mounts Bay from Mousehole to Penzance, St Michael's Mount and as far afield as The Lizard Peninsula in the distance.
On the ground floor are found two well-proportioned reception rooms that open into the splendid large conservatory from where the views are at their very best and there is direct access onto a balcony. To the rear of the property is found a well-appointed contemporary kitchen with a utility room and bathroom completing the accommodation. Rising to the first floor, the two principal bedrooms both face directly out to sea whilst bedroom three and bedroom four are located to the rear of the property. There is also a family bathroom with free-standing roll top bath.OUTSIDE
To the rear of the property, and accessed off Cliff Lane, is a parking space for one vehicle alongside a useful workshop with further storage room beneath.
From this parking area there are steps descending to the house with a pathway to the side and rear. Continuing to the seaward side of the property there is a tiered terraced garden with well stocked borders and a delightful secluded terrace with Summerhouse and splendid views. From here, steps lead down to Cliff Road and the walk into the village.VIEWING
