Situated in a private location off the beaten track yet still within easy reach of the village and the harbour you will find this spacious detached bungalow that affords panoramic views over the surrounding countryside, woodland, the harbour and out to sea. Offered for sale with no onward chain this is a rare opportunity to acquire a property that not only enjoys stunning views but also has the advantage of a garage and hard standing for vehicles. Built in approximately 1984 the property provides relatively spacious accommodation that has central heating, double glazing and in brief comprises three double bedrooms, spacious hall, bathroom with bath and shower, separate wc, side porch, well fitted kitchen/diner and a multi aspect lounge with wood burner. Delightful views can be enjoyed from most of the the front elevation windows but in particular the lounge. This room also has doors that open onto a side patio which is perfect for al fresco dining or just relaxing and enjoying the peaceful surroundings. Within the accommodation there is ample storage with fitted wardrobes to all bedrooms, and two cupboards in the hall. Due to the elevated position of the property the gardens are generally sloping and planted with an abundance of shrubs. From the road, which provides access to the garage and further parking, a drive leads up through the front garden to the property and an area of hard standing. A viewing is advised so as to fully appreciate the views, location and accommodation.

One of the most popular places in Cornwall, the village of Polperro is undoubtedly one of the prettiest. Packed tightly into a steep valley on either side of the River Pol, the quaint colour washed cottages and twisting streets offer surprises at every turn. With its protected inner harbour full of colourful boats, it is still a working fishing village, although tourism now provides the main source of income. The coastline here is part of the 80 mile south Cornwall Heritage Coast, and from Polperro beautiful walks extend to Talland in the east or Lansallos in the west, both with beaches and interesting churches.

The property is approached over a sloping drive from Brackenside and this leads up to the parking and to the partially enclosed entrance porch.

There are two ways to approach the property for viewings, either on foot or by car. If choosing to walk then park in the main car park and proceed along the main road (The Coombes) towards the harbour, continue past the Claremont Hotel and take the next right into Mill Hill. Follow the road past the model village on your right and at the end of the road turn right into Landaviddy Lane. Follow this road and take the first left into Brackenside and the property can be found on your right. If you prefer to drive to the property then on entering Polperro take the second exit at the mini roundabout by the car park and the Crumplehorn Inn. Follow this road out into the countryside and after 1.2 miles you will reach a left turn signposted Landaviddy and Raphael. Take this road and follow it for another 1.2 miles. You will pass through the hamlet of Raphael and pass a sign that says restricted access. Just after this take the second right into a small lane, the first right is for Elm Cottage and a private car park, the property can then be found on your right. If you are driving to the property we would advise that you follow these directions and that you do not try and approach the property by driving through the village of Polperro.
