The house enjoys interesting and ever changing southerly water views over the boating activity of the Carrick Roads, beyond into the beautiful Falmouth Bay and to the east over the National Trusts St Anthony Head.
Clay Point offers a wonderful sense of both privacy and space, something exceptionally rare in a waterfront property. These factors combine to create a fabulously relaxing environment and atmosphere whilst also being incredibly accessible to an amazing array of lifestyle and activities both on and off the water.
The gardens and grounds immediately in front and to the sides of the house are beautifully planted with a combination of mature shrubs and trees, a terrace at the front opens onto a level lawn which in turn leads to numerous vantage points from which to sit and soak up the amazing water views, as well as providing access to the waterfront and the beach. On the western side is a contrasting sheltered area, almost completely hidden from view and set below the level of the main gardens, this also leads down to the waterfront and has the sense of being a hidden oasis. This area may have potential for a further structure, subject to all required planning permissions.
The beach is a real delight and there is even a space to sit and relax overlooking it. The broad front terrace has been created to offer the perfect space for entertaining, with access directly from the sitting room, dining room and garden room. The studio is a wonderful area offering so many uses; designed originally for an artist, there is all that one would ask for but it could so easily be transformed into further accommodation, or a separate space for relatives or guests. The master bedroom is generous and has the most hypnotic view both from the panoramic bay window and its substantial balcony. There are three further bedrooms on this floor with a further two on the upper level.
