Fowey house description

St Keverne is a good sized and comfortable detached house in the heart of Gorran Haven 200 metres from the beach. It sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms. There are 3 bathrooms (2 en suite). There is wifi, dishwasher, central heating and constant hot water.

The main bedroom suite is set apon the upper floor has king-sized bed and en suite shower room, wc.

On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with en suite shower.

Two twin bedrooms and a family bathroom with bath and shower over, wc.

There is a sitting room, large conservatory and kitchen/ breakfast room spread out so that the house is a very good social space, where different people can do different things.

Outside there is a lovely Summerhouse set away at the top of the large sloping lawned garden behind the house. The deck at the front has easy chairs and a sea view. There is a level paved area behind the house with outdoor dining furniture and BBQ.

The ground floor of the house can be approached along a pathway to the side of the house, allowing wheelchair access.

It is a highly suitable holiday house for family holidays or a quiet winter retreat. There is double glazing, an open fire and central heating, so you will be cosy even in Cornwall's rare winter cold snaps.

St Keverne is located in a quiet and private corner of the older village of Gorran Haven set on a terrace above Canton and screened by mature trees you might not guess it was there.

There are sea views from parts of the house and garden and the beach is a short walk away. There is private parking for three cars or one plus boat.

The house is well maintained and spacious and has been recently refurbished. The garden is large and not overlooked. The deck and gardens have gates making them secure for younger children.



Property Layout:

          Other Amenities

              • St Keverne is a nice large house with plenty of indoor and outdoor space for relaxing with friends or withdrawing quietly. It has a mature garden and lots of privacy and is within a short walk (200 metres apron) of the beach & cliffs. It is simply furnished in Beach house style with plenty of books and DVD's, also wifi. There is a lovely, large and solid Summerhouse with double bed, at the top of the garden with superb sea view and great privacy (but no bathroom facilities). Gorran Haven and the surrounding area is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is an ideal holiday place for families and adults to enjoy a holiday any time of the year. Winter stays are highly recommended - nice open fireplace and good insulation make it a pleasing retreat from the crashing waves and stormy weather outside. Cornish winters are usually warm & wild. St Keverne is a versatile house suitable for large or small groups - we are happy to set rates accordingly. ...moreless

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About: Sally and Mike Dyer look after a number of cottages mainly in our home village of Gorran Haven - a small place once dependent on fishing, with a sandy beach half way down the south coast of Cornwall, UK We began by letting our own cottage Hillside and gradually we've ended up with quite a few as friends have asked us to look after theirs too. Now there are 20 or so properties. Most are in Gorran Haven but some are along the coast a little, in Portloe and some are in the countryside nearby. They are all different, but all are within easy reach of a beach. Our company House By The Beach is very small and local we arrange letting and quite often the management of the cottages. There is a wealth of local talent to help and the houses are kept in good order. While you are here you will be in safe and experienced hands - from babysitting to repairing the boiler (not necessarily by the same person). You will find the area a lovely place to relax with small children. Our own kids and their friends enjoy it as much as Sally who was born here did & still does. The local area is really beautiful and it is a pleasure to be here. Quite a few of our visitors end up coming to stay permanently - see our gallery of pictures to find out why.

              Why Fowey:
              St Keverne stood out immediately as a rare find. It's within a short walk of the beach, cliffs & baker's. It is a good size with fabulous private garden, parking and a quiet well hidden location right in the middle of the oldest bit of the village. The new owners Paul & Clare have been coming to the village for years with their kids and will one day live here full time - until then they love it as a beach house and a retreat. The house has a nice uncomplicated generosity - like them - it's good for quiet breaks or fun gatherings - the Summerhouse is my favourite hideaway.
