Experience - The Area...Less than 5 miles from each of the historic harbours of Charlestown and Mevagissey and a couple of miles from Pentewan Sands on the Cornish Riviera is this recently renovated , 150 year old former barn, Kegwen. The sustainable, forward thinking ethos of the developer has resulted in a beautifully presented property which has been sympathetically restored but includes all the modern comforts a holiday home of this standard should have at its disposal. Kegwen is one of seven individual and unique properties in a super courtyard setting which has been stylishly furnished boasting an array of attractive original features including solid oak beams and exposed stone walls.

The sustainable, forward thinking ethos of the developer has resulted in a beautifully presented property which has been sympathetically restored but includes all the modern comforts a holiday home of this standard should have at its disposal. Kegwen is one of seven individual and unique properties in a super courtyard setting which has been stylishly furnished boasting an array of attractive original features including solid oak beams and exposed stone walls. The traditional harbours of Charlestown and Mevagissey are 5 miles away and offer a range of cafes, restaurants and shops both with a small beach and good costal walks. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are an eight minute drive with the larger town of St Austell 4 miles with a range of shopping facilities including two supermarkets, a leisure centre, cinema, golf course and mainline railway station. Stay - The Accommodation...Access to the private parking for two vehicles is via a pretty, unmade lane. From the parking area, a gravel path winds gently through the open lawn garden down to a tiered terrace area with colourful shrubs and outdoor dining furniture. Further steps lead down to the front door and additional seating area. The double glazed front door leads into a small entrance hallway with slate floor and handy WC. Two steps lead down into the stylish kitchen dining area with smart white gloss units and butchers block work surface contrasting beautifully with the striking slate flooring. A pair of French doors opens out onto the partially enclosed terrace to the rear with furniture which overlooks the courtyard and is perfect for a morning coffee to absorb the peace and quiet. Off the kitchen and dining area is the comfortable and contemporarily furnished living room with stunning solid oak beams, exposed original stone walling and feature wood burner taking centre stage. The same striking slate flooring continues with comfortable easy seating focused around the wood burner and television. French doors (one step up) lead out from the living space to the front terrace and garden. A Cornish style, twist and turn oak staircase leads up to the three bedrooms and family bathroom. At the top of the stairs to the right is a spacious single bedroom with views out across the countryside to the rear of the property. On the left is the family bathroom WC with bath, overhead mixer shower, basin and heated towel rail. The bathroom has slate flooring and overlooks the garden to the front of the property. Further along the landing on the left is a good size double bedroom looking over the garden to the front. Finally, positioned at the rear of the property, is the spacious master bedroom with king size bed and walk-in shower WC ensuite. All three bedrooms feature engineered oak flooring as well as ample hanging and drawer space. The property is heated throughout by underfloor heating via a ground source heat pump. The wood burner provides supplementary heating during the colder months if required. The barns are located opposite a working dairy. London Apprentice a six minute drive, has a small convenience store and restaurant with a traditional pub at Polgooth only an eight minute drive. Don't forget...-Sorry, this property does not accept pets. -Whilst children are welcome to stay at Kegwen, due to the number of steps both inside and outside the property, parents are responsible for their safety and wellbeing. -The owners of this environmentally friendly property would be very grateful if (where possible) environment friendly products could be used. -A £500 security deposit is requiredMore
