A genuinely exciting opportunity to purchase this substantial six bedroom detached house requiring full refurbishment

Jackie Stanley are delighted to bring to the market Chy Vounder, a six bedroom/three reception room detached house in need of full renovation or complete redevelopment located high above the stunning and revered sandy beach of Mawgan Porth offering fantastic views of the headland and ocean beyond.

In addition, there is a garden plot adjacent to Chy Vounder available by separate negotiation. Having submitted a pre application for a 4/5 bedroom residential dwelling with garage, the planning department of Cornwall Council have stated that, in principal, a residential development is acceptable at this location, subject to the design/landscape and access arrangements being satisfactory along with any ecological implications.

Impressively, Chy Vounder stands at just over 2400 square feet making this a substantial dwelling with sprawling accommodation and an abundance of exciting potential. The current accommodation comprises three front aspect reception rooms, two of which have an open fireplace and bay window. Two double bedrooms at either end of the property are separated by the kitchen/dining room and two shower rooms. There is also a good size front porch, generous reception hall and rear porch too. The first floor incorporates a further four bedrooms, cloakroom and a huge amount of eaves storage. Three of the bedrooms have front aspect windows with a far reaching vista of the sea.

Stepping outside, the majority of the gardens are to the front and offer an established and mature array of plants, shrubs and trees creating a natural privacy to the plot. There is an attached garage and off road driveway parking for several vehicles. Services to the property include mains gas, water, electricity and drainage.

Chy Vounder offers an exciting opportunity to put your own stamp on a property or indeed build your own coastal dream and we at Jackie Stanley recommend a physical or virtual viewing to visualise and appreciate the potential.

Please note that any scheme of development would be subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent and building regulations.

Chy Vounder sits just above the magnificent sandy beach and roaring ocean of Mawgan Porth, now one of the most sought after locations in North Cornwall. The vast 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 on your doorstep at The Scarlett & Bedruthan Hotel. The bay provides a range of amenities including a local store, cafes, various eateries, The Merrymoor public house, surf school and gift shops.
