Property Description
Hunters West Cornwall invites you to discover a unique property, brimming with untapped potential. This detached three-bedroom home is ripe for transformation, providing a blank canvas for you to modernise, creating a home that suits your style and needs. Further potential can be found with the added possibility of a self-contained unit on the lower ground floor (subject to any necessary planning or consents) and an accompanying block of two garages on a separate plot. Situated in a highly sought after residential area of Newlyn, this property is within a short walk of the charming town centre, and benefits from far reaching views across Mounts Bay. What a interesting renovation project for someone! We recommend booking an appointment to view at your earliest convenience, to avoid missing out.

The Main Property

As you journey along Old Paul’s Hill, each step further unveils the breathtaking panorama of Newlyn below, stretching out towards the endless expanse of Mount’s Bay, with the iconic silhouette of St Michael’s Mount gracing the horizon. You will soon reach the public bridleway, signposted for Valdemosa, which provides pedestrian access to the property.

As you step inside, pause for a moment in the convenient porch to take off your boots and autumnal jacket, before proceeding into the entrance hall. Head straight to the door opposite, and we’ll start this tour in our favourite room of the house – the sitting room. Instantly, your gaze will be irresistibly drawn to the two expansive windows, which frame the awe-inspiring vista beyond. You will be looking out over the rooftops of Newlyn town, with far reaching ocean views across Mounts Bay, reaching the horizon. The room boasts a snug coal stove ensconced in a stone surround, which radiates a sense of warmth and comfort. A glass panelled door opens out onto a balcony, an inspiring spot to start your day with a morning coffee. The sitting room is open to the kitchen/ breakfast room, which benefits from being spacious and dual aspect. There is also a convenient ground floor cloakroom.

Head upstairs and on the first floor you will find three good size bedrooms, all of which benefit from built-in cupboards – you can never have too much storage afterall! The two bedrooms with windows to the rear elevation benefit from outstanding, elevated views across Mounts Bay. There is also a well-appointed family bathroom and a good size airing cupboard.

The Lower Ground Floor

Located on the lower ground floor and accessible through its own private entrance, you’ll discover a versatile space simply brimming with potential. The open-plan area has two windows with magnificent views of Mounts Bay, and is fitted with a sink unit with draining board. It perhaps presents opportunity to be renovated as a versatile kitchenette, living space, and cosy bedroom – of course subject to any necessary planning or consents. Adjacent to this area, a separate shower room stands ready to provide convenience and functionality.

The Gardens

In this garden, winding paths traverse the hillside terrain, unveiling a hidden world of lush, mature plants and shrubs. Nestled amidst all of this, you will find a greenhouse and shed on a levelled area. Multiple patio seating areas also beckon, each one offering a unique vantage point over the surrounding gardens.

The Garage & Parking

Just a leisurely stroll from the property, you’ll discover a detached block of two garages, standing at the head of a driveway parking area. There is space to park multiple vehicles, and a small garden area to the rear.
