This sprawling five bedroom residence full of original character with a contemporary style has a self contained annexe

Bramble Cottage is a thoughtfully modernised, extended and sympathetically renovated five bedroom cottage of deceptively substantial proportions and huge versatility. Full of original character with a modern style throughout, parts of the property are thought to date back to the mid 1600’s which have been superbly retained and integrated with contemporary living.

Not only does this surprisingly large residence of over 3000 square feet offer four/five bedrooms and three/four individual reception rooms, there is a self contained one bedroom annexe of 345 square feet as well as a separate detached one bedroom self contained lodge with its own curtilage. Situated within the small, peaceful hamlet of Engollan just 1.7 miles from the picturesque Cornish cove of Porthcothan Bay and less than 2.5 miles from magnificent Mawgan Porth, we at Jackie Stanley recommend an immediate appointment to view this uniquely diverse, deceptively large and versatile home.

Noteworthy features include original exposed stone walls, wood paneled walls, a beautiful farmhouse kitchen with Aga, wood block work surfaces, fireplace with original stonework and cloam oven, exposed ceiling beams, two wood burning stoves, grey aluminum windows and doors including a large set of bi-fold doors in the lounge, a natural slate roof, a sedum live roof and a plethora of designer colours and textures throughout. Further features include the luxurious family bathroom complete with Jacuzzi bath, a stylish master en-suite shower room, a laundry chute, a mail chute and huge utility room.

With its own separate access, Bramble Cottage has the benefit of a self contained annexe complete with lounge, bedroom, shower room and kitchen which doubles as the utility room. Not only that, there is The Cow Shed – a completely separate one bedroom lodge style dwelling, timber clad with a beachside feel and a history of successful holiday letting.

The attractive stone façade of Bramble Cottage is approached via an impressively large graveled driveway which offers off road parking for at least six vehicles. Cleverly designed landscaping and terracing is interspersed by beautiful specimen shrubs and small trees with a sunken sun terrace to the rear having composite decking and timber cladding. Services to the property include mains water and electricity, an oil fired central heating system, private drainage and fibre optic broadband.

Under the current ownership, Bramble Cottage, The Cow Shed and the annexe have been the subject of an all encompassing top down renovation to create a truly versatile home – one that would equally serve as a permanent family home or indeed as a characterful holiday home with excellent income potential.

The pretty and peaceful hamlet of Engollan lies approximately 1.7 miles inland from the enclosed golden sandy beach of Porthcothan Bay. Just 2.5 miles along the coast is Mawgan Porth, now one of the most sought after locations in North Cornwall. The magnificent sandy beach is famous for water sports activities serving surfers and bathers alike with stunning cliff and coastline walks. Fine dining is available locally at the award-winning Scarlet Hotel as well as first class spa and recreational facilities at The Scarlett & Bedruthan Hotel. The bay provides a range of amenities including a local store, cafes, public house, surf school and gift shops. A leading venue for beach sports, events, dog walkers and a renowned surfing hotspot, Watergate Bay is located a further two miles along the coast. The bay is an extremely sought after beach location, with a hive of activity and a wide range of events held at the bay throughout the year such as surf competitions and water sports meaning the atmosphere in the small beach community is one of great energy and excitement.

Rick Stein’s esteemed Seafood restaurant, Paul Ainsworth’s Michelin starred No.6 and cool seafood bar Prawn On The Lawn in picturesque Padstow can be found just a few miles along the very scenic coast road. Well situated for ease of transport, Engollan is approximately a 20 minute drive off the main A30 and just 10 minutes away from Newquay Airport with its domestic and international flight services. The main line train station at Bodmin Parkway is approximately a 30 minutes drive away.
