A detached residence situated in one of the most spectacular frontline positions in Mawgan Porth

Red Cove occupies one of the finest positions in Mawgan Porth if you want front line, uninterrupted sea, beach and cliff top views that are truly spectacular and cannot be surpassed. 

This unique opportunity offers a purchaser the chance to acquire a substantial detached residence with detailed planning permission granted to demolish the existing property and construct an amazing and quite individual spectacular residence that faces the sea, beach and coastline, with a protected view giving a wide uninterrupted vista which extends across the ocean to Pentire Point in the distance. From the garden you can access the coastal footpath giving you a direct path to the beach just a few yards away.

Planning permission was granted in October 2017 and the plans are available for download from the Cornwall Council Planning Portal or can be provided upon request. 

In order to protect the view, the present vendors have purchased additional land in front of Red Cove and acquired a covenant that secures a line of sight across the beach to the bridge at Mawgan Porth, thereby guaranteeing the unencumbered views in perpetuity. 

The proposed new build was designed by Peter Doggett, the award winning architect from Australia and will provide a stunning contemporary dwelling which makes the most of the light and truly magnificent views.

It will be essential to view this property to fully appreciate just how fabulous the site is, as the views are almost indescribably breathtaking. Red Cove as it stands comprises a six bedroom detached bungalow with a three bedroom attached annexe, which is in need of total modernisation. Lawned gardens and grounds surround the property on two tiers, the lower tier providing direct access to the coastal path.

Mawgan Porth is a hugely popular and sought after location in North Cornwall. The magnificent sandy beach is famous for water sports activities for surfers and bathers alike and there are also stunning cliff and coastline walks. Fine dining is available locally at the award-winning Scarlet Hotel, Jamie Oliver's Fifteen at nearby Watergate Bay and the esteemed Rick Steins Seafood restaurant in Padstow, just a few miles along the very scenic coast road. First class spa and recreational facilities are available within walking distance. The bay provides a range of amenities including a local store, cafes, public house, hotels, surf school and gift shops. There are also excellent local schools and transport links with Newquay Airport. St Mawgan, a beautiful picture box perfect village lies 2.5 miles inland and has a Post Office, stores, village green and beautiful 13th century church as well as an "outstanding" primary school.

To find Red Cove, head towards Newquay from Padstow along the coast road passing through St Merryn and Porthcothan along the way. Upon entering the hamlet of Trenance, turn right at the telephone box and postbox. Drive a short distance down the lane and then turn right just after the blue garage. Follow this private lane for approximately 350 yards and Red Cove is the last property on the left hand side. The postcode for satellite navigation is TR8 4BZ.
