Magnificent 4 bedroom detached house, located on the outskirts of the coastal village of St Merryn, within the heart of the highly sought-after Seven Bays, just to the south of Padstow. Constructed in 2019, the house backs on to and enjoys views across rolling fields of open farmland towards the stretch of coast that runs from Treyarnon Bay towards Harlyn Bay.
The property has been designed to an exacting specification by the renowned architects, Harrison Sutton Partnership, and built by the highly respected specialist building contractors, Gynn Construction. The specification and materials used both internally and externally can only be described as being of the utmost quality, combined with fastidious attention to detail applied to all finishes being obvious throughout.
Upon entering the house, the level of design and craftsmanship are immediately apparent. The entrance hall is bathed in natural light, provided by stylish double aspect floor to ceiling architectural glazing, that also provide excellent sight lines through to the rear gardens and the countryside beyond. A stunning bespoke oak staircase is the first major feature on display, screening the entrance from the dining room, as well as providing access to the first floor galleried landing that stretches through the centre of the house, running above the length of the kitchen. The dining area enjoys westerly sliding glazed doors that open out on to a large patio area and the feature of the room is its impressive double height vaulted ceiling, fitted with multiple large sky light windows. The dining room is fully open plan to the bespoke George Robinson designed kitchen, with a magnificent large feature island at its heart with honed granite matte finished work surfaces over and fitted with various high quality integrated Miele and Bora appliances. Underfoot is natural stone flooring, providing a complimentary contrasting palette to the kitchen.
The sitting room is semi open plan to the kitchen/diner. Engineered oak flooring, recessed ceiling lighting and a neutral colour scheme provides a contemporary yet relaxing and cosy space, further complimented by a Stûv wood burning stove, which has the option for both an open or enclosed fire. Large sliding glazed doors face west and open onto the outside patio area, whilst integrated handleless cupboards provide excellent storage.
The ground floor also houses a good sized 4th bedroom, which is currently utilised as an office. Adjoining the kitchen is the utility room. This sleekly designed room has three discreet floor to ceiling integrated cupboards that cleverly hide the sink and appliances, as well as providing some excellent storage. The utility room in turn leads to the large ground floor shower room, serving bedroom 4, whilst also providing a option for anybody needing a shower or space to change after a visit to the beach.
Upstairs, the galleried walkway, incorporating impressive bookshelves and further storage cupboards, leads from the main landing to the master bedroom suite. From the bedroom exceptional, unobstructed, westerly views can be enjoyed across the immediately neighbouring farmland toward the coast and sea at Treyarnon Bay and beyond. The views are cleverly maximised by pillar-less corner glazed walls and the infinity glass balustrade of the wraparound balcony that also provides a further idyllic spot for a morning coffee or sunset drinks. There is also an excellent dressing area and a beautifully finished en suite shower room.
The two further first floor bedrooms are both of a good size and the largest comes complete with built in wardrobes. They are serviced by the family bathroom that has both a walk-in shower and a sunken Duravit whirltub bath and is finished with natural stone tiling.
Outside, to the front there is a large gravelled area providing parking space for a number of cars and access to the garage at the side. To the rear is a large patio area on its westerly side and good sized lawned area to opposite side, with a surrounding planted border that is designed to give the feel and effect of the magnificent local sand dunes at Constantine Bay.
Porthilly is set within the highly desirable location of St Merryn, in the heart of the Seven Bays, just to the south of Padstow. Set just back from the headland that links the much admired beaches of Treyarnon Bay and Constantine Bay, which is also within eyeshot from the property itself, it is perfectly positioned to access many of the surrounding areas activities and lifestyle.
