A stunning fusion of character and contemporary is displayed in this highly individual and extensively extended and refurbished terraced house just 400m from the harbour at Portreath.

At the rear is a large garden with formal area and further storage and extensive parking area with further possibilities. A real must view as the front façade belies what lied behind.

This extremely attractive double fronted terraced home offers a wonderful fusion of character and contemporary, having been extensively extended over two storeys to the rear and offers generous and extremely adaptable accommodation which includes an impressive open plan modern living space with dining, sitting and kitchen area with vaulted two storey ceiling height over the sitting space with mezzanine study area above. There are a further two sitting rooms which form the original part of the cottage and include a living room with window seat, a wood burning stove set in stone fire surround with granite lintel and polished granite hearth whilst the second reception room (currently used as a study/library) has working shutters, feature stone chimney breast and limestone tiled floor. The ground floor accommodation is completed with a utility room and stairs which rise from the hallway have courtesy lighting, block glass feature and lead up to the landing and mezzanine area (currently used as a second study). The first-floor accommodation comprises four double bedrooms with a family bathroom, ensuite shower room and further shower room which complements the master bedroom. The mezzanine area overlooks the living space and enjoys a cascade of natural light from the full height glazed windows above the bi-fold doors which lead onto the extensive formal garden area to the rear. The garden is a particular feature of all the properties in Greenfield Terrace, being extremely long and this particular one is divided into three main sections. The initial formal garden includes a large decked area and further patio along with lawn and mature shrub borders. The formal garden is then fenced with a gate which leads through to a further large area including vegetable garden and store shed which leads to extensive parking area with vehicular access and potential for the erection of a garage/workshop and studio or even potentially living accommodation, subject to appropriate consents. The front of the property enjoys a walled garden accessed via a central gate with footpath leading to the front door, either side of which are borders planted with mature flowers, herbs and shrubs. The property is double glazed with the front façade having granite lintels above each of the window and door openings. The extension to the rear is 'detached' in so much as you can access all three sides of the extension.
Having double glazing and oil fired central heating, this property provides a fabulous opportunity for a wonderful family home but would equally appeal as a second home/holiday letting investment in light of its proximity to the sandy beach and harbour at Portreath.
