Spanning the entire first floor of a large Victorian villa with its own private entrance, this light filled home has large bespoke windows with a peaceful rural outlook and unusually high ceilings giving it a wonderful sense of space and calm. A handbuilt kitchen by Treyone of Cornwall, top of the range loaf beds and calming Farrow and ball hues all add to the feeling of quality in this special property.

Whether an escape to relax and lay on the beach, walk the coast path or get some surfing in, this is a perfect spot to enjoy your Cornish break.
In an incredibly sought after location, An Chy Gwyn is nestled into the sleepy coastal village of Porthcurno. The beach really is a paradise and you’re perfectly positioned and can wander down there in about 5 minutes.
Famously known for the Minack, Porthcurno is home to this entirely unique open air theatre that’s perched up on the cliffs. With only the breathtaking and ever-changing view of the Atlantic Ocean as its backdrop, this is a truly special spot. From the beach you can even climb up the steps and rocks built into the cliff side, for an amazing panoramic view of the coastline.
Located away from it all but only a short journey to some of the best the far west of Cornwall has to offer, you’re only 10 minutes by car to the amazing Sennen and Gwenver beaches or 15 minutes to Newlyn harbour for some of the freshest seafood there is.

The open plan living room with its Black Forest oak parquet floor is the hub of the home and a social space. Perfect after a day at the beach, pop a bottle in the wine cooler and sink into one of the two large sumptuous sofas or gorgeous leather armchair. The window is ideal for sitting back and admiring the countryside views by day, or in the evening light the woodburner and read a book or snuggle up to a film on the large TV.
