Marias Lane, Sennen Cove, Penzance
- Two bedroomed bungalow for renovation / redevelopment
- Cliffside position with harbour, beach and ocean views
- Idyllic, peaceful traffic free position
- Prestigious and sought after coastal location
An incredible opportunity to buy a cliffside home in Sennen Cove, one of West Cornwall's most sought after and prestigious locations, overlooking the harbour and lifeboat slip, up the coast across Sennen beach to Cape Cornwall and out to the Atlantic Ocean.
Having been in the same family ownership for many decades, the bungalow has reached the point where a programme of works has become essential to bring it into the 21st century. It is a great basis for a renovation or a stunning site for something more ambitious, subject to any necessary consents.
Access is via a flight of stone steps from the end of Marias Lane and although this means that you cannot drive to the property it does ensure a peaceful, traffic free haven in which to live. There is a small garden surrounding the dwelling which gives you sunshine all afternoon and, being West facing, a view of the sunset.
Projects in idyllic locations like this are becoming increasingly rare so please make contact to register your interest and arrange an appointment to view at your earliest opportunity.
Situated just over a mile from Land's End, Sennen Cove is one of West Cornwall's most popular and well known surfing beaches. It has a good community with a shop, school and church and access to some of the country's most beautiful and breath-taking coastline, beaches and coves via the Cornish Coastal Path.
The nearest major town is Penzance, approx. nine miles distant, where you will find a comprehensive range of shops and commercial facilities and well as schools and a college, providing education for all ages, and a mainline rail link to London Paddington.
