substantial five bedroom detached residence, offering a tranquil & private setting in this sought after coastal location

Located high above the magnificent beach of Mawgan Porth, one of the most sought after bays on the North Cornish coast, is Dene Court. This substantial detached house is thought to have been built in 1949 and sits centrally within a sloping plot of approximately 0.5 acres. The property offers extreme privacy and seclusion, hidden away behind established gardens and mature trees with glimpses of the beach and sea beyond. Dene Court is also orientated in exactly the right way to enjoy the sunshine - just a couple of degrees off due south.

Built to good proportions and standing at over 2004 square feet, the accommodation comprises a generous central reception hall with a turned staircase rising to the first floor and reception rooms off. The lounge has a gas fire with a Cornish stone surround and a dual aspect including a bay window offering an abundance of natural light. Across the hallway is the dual aspect dining room followed by the kitchen, fitted with a range of modern floor and wall units and freestanding appliances. A glazed porch adjoins the kitchen and provides a rear entrance. From the hallway, a step leads up to a narrow room used as an office/study with plumbing and venting for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also a separate cloakroom.

Up on the first floor are five genuine double bedrooms, all with built in wash basins and storage - two of them include wardrobes and dressing tables. Three of them provide front aspect views towards the beach and sea, two of them have attractive and unusual corner windows. There is also a family bathroom complete with bath/shower, white suite and fitted cabinets and a separate shower room with electric shower and WC. The attic is also a useful space divided into separate rooms with a Velux window and accessed via a loft ladder. The property benefits from solar panels which provides a feed-in tariff and solar water heating.

Dene Court is approached from a private lane and sits centrally within its substantial plot, screened by an established array of evergreen trees, shrubs and plants providing shelter and privacy. The sloping gardens are bordered by open farmland to the rear with meandering paths and retaining walls interspersing. There is an outbuilding to the rear, a greenhouse and double garage to the front, a driveway to the side of the property and ample parking space. The plot extends to approximately 0.5 acres. One can join the many nearby paths down to the beach within minutes. Services to the property include mains gas central heating, electricity, water and drainage. Dene Court has an EPC rating of C and a council tax band of E.

Subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent, Dene Court could be redeveloped to create a spectacular new dwelling. Alternatively and again subject to planning, the plot could accommodate several new dwellings.

Mawgan Porth is hugely popular and now one of the most sought after locations in North Cornwall. The magnificent sandy beach is famous for water sports activities for surfers and bathers alike and with 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 Rick Stein's esteemed 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 at The Scarlett & Bedruthan Hotel. The bay provides a range of amenities including a local store, cafes, public house, surf school and gift shops. There are also excellent local schools and transport links with Newquay Airport within a mile. St Mawgan, a beautiful picture box perfect village lies 2.5 miles inland and has a Post Office/store, village green and beautiful 13th Century church as well as an outstanding primary school.

To find Dene Court, 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, then turn immediately right just after the blue garage into a lane signed 'private access'. Follow this private lane for approximately 130 yards and Dene Court can be found along on the right hand side. The postcode for satellite navigation is TR8 4BZ.
