This property comes to the market for the first time since its construction in the mid 1950s. Located just 250 metres from the beach it enjoys a private and privileged position surrounded by a beautifully landscaped garden. Port Gaverne beach is quintessentially Cornish; a gently sloping sand and pebble beach flanked by large sea cliffs. The beach itself is renowned as a safe family friendly location with the award winning Port Gaverne Hotel and Public House a few yards from the beach.
Just half a mile away is the popular and picturesque fishing village of Port Isaac. The village itself has a thriving local community and offers a range of local facilities and amenities catering for day to day needs. These include doctors surgery, primary school, public houses, excellent restaurants including Michelin starred Restaurant Nathan Outlaw and regular local bus services to nearby towns. Perhaps best known for its association with a number of TV series the village itself was the backdrop for the first series of Poldark in the 1970s and since 2004 the location for the TV series Doc Martin. Port Isaac is home of the internationally renowned A cappella singers, The Fisherman's Friends. In years gone by it was a bustling trading and fishing port with a myriad of narrow streets and traditional cottages arranged around the beach and harbour. The first sea wall was constructed during the reign of Henry VIII but has long since yielded to two strong stone quays protecting it from the Atlantic Ocean.
A more comprehensive range of amenities can be found in the estuary town of Wadebridge, located eight miles to the south and sitting astride the River Camel with its famous cycle path linking with the fishing port of Padstow. From Wadebridge there is access to the town of Bodmin with its mainline railway station serving London Paddington via Plymouth. At Bodmin there is access to the A30 trunk road which links the cathedral cities of Truro and Exeter. At Exeter there is access to the M5 motorway network, mainline railway station serving London Paddington and the Midlands and the well-respected Exeter International Airport.FEATURES OF THE PROPERTY
