The Property

Once inside, this sizeable home is flooded with natural light through the glass front facing wall, filling the house with a warming and welcoming atmosphere.  The lofty first floor opens out before you on arrival setting the scene for your relaxing holiday by the sea.  Set over two floors, the house has been reversed to ensure those jackpot views are enjoyed from the living space.  A collection of 5 bedrooms can be found on the lower floor whilst the main entrance and open plan area are on the first floor.  Decked out in neutral shades, the living and dining areas offer a versatile space for the group to dine in style or simply enjoy a late breakfast or high tea, the thoughtful layout cleverly separates the areas yet still maintains the great sense of space.  The sleek stylish corner kitchen offers an uber-contemporary twist to the room, the budding chef in the party will enjoy the high tech culinary features just perfect for feeding a hungry house of 10 after a day exploring Cornwall. Just off the living area is a separate quiet snug where children can escape the adult chit chat and enjoy a movie or favourite board game. The bedrooms and bathrooms have been equally spaced out on the lower floor accessed via a beautiful wooden central staircase. 5 unique bedrooms each offer a comfortable haven in which to rest, 3 offer garden access and sunny aspect. The contemporary bathrooms have been superbly kitted out with beautiful deep baths and indulgent showers. Throughout the house the owners have flawlessly blended their bespoke style and flair with more modern order ensuring Sunset not only offers a practical holiday home in every way but ensures its guests of luxurious comfort.

Cornish Gems are delighted to welcome Sunset to the coastal portfolio of luxury Gems

As an extension of the house, throw back the bi-fold doors of the living space and enjoy the al fresco ambiance of the wooden veranda offering wonderful views of the lush green fields leading down to the blue seas of Porthtowan beyond. This indulgent space is large enough for children to safely play whilst you relax or sit out and enjoy the mornings papers over a coffee. At either side of the elevated veranda, steps lead down onto a further patio at ground level with outdoor dining furniture and a level grassed lawn. Lazy summer days are spent enjoying the tranquility of the garden whilst the adventurers in the group hit the surf, retire together at the days end on the veranda with favourite cocktail and take advantage of your very own sunset view point.

Just moments from your holiday door the beautiful coastal village of Porthtowan offers something for everyone, the Blue Bar is well worth a visit be it breakfast or slap up supper for the family. Enjoying Blue Flag status, the golden sand beach is fully lifeguarded from Easter to October offering safe swimming for all to enjoy. The coast road leads you up and over the cliffs taking in some of the most beautiful seascapes in the county, enjoy a day trip to cosmopolitan St Ives or head further north to the fishing haven of Padstow. 


Sunset offers the perfect base for friends to escape for a long weekend, for families to come together in comfort or simply for smaller groups looking for a tranquil beside-the-seaside home for a while.
