A fine detached residence nestled within six acres of grounds with spectacular views across a swathe of coastline

Perched above the valley leading down to the sea, Epphaven House is an opportunity to secure the idyllic, secluded home of your dreams situated in an unrivalled position on the coast of North Cornwall. The breathtaking views are spectacular, stunning in Summer and dramatic in Winter. Approached via a private road and long private driveway, the 6 acres of gardens and grounds include a private footpath to Epphaven beach and South West coast path with plenty of parking for cars and boats. A unique home in a spectacular, almost indescribably stunning location.

The location of Epphaven House and the way in which it sits within six acres of North Cornwall’s most beautiful landscape make it an unrivalled proposition. The long private driveway and direct access via a private path to the beach and coast path make it utterly unique. In addition, the large family friendly gardens create what the current owners describe as a natural adventure playground for children. To the rear of the property there is a large double garage with substantial capacity for vehicle and boat storage which could be adapted for various uses subject to the appropriate consents being obtained as required.

The accommodation currently comprises a kitchen with Aga and electric oven, utility room, dining room, sitting room and large sun room with uninterrupted sea views. Doors from the sun room open onto a large veranda with panoramic views of the valley and coastline. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, each with a unique view of the breathtaking natural surroundings. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom. There are two additional double bedrooms each with a wash basin, a single/bunkbed room, family bathroom and separate WC. Epphaven House is a fine characterful property with a long history. However, the property could be considered a viable redevelopment opportunity to build a spectacular modern home, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions of course. Services to the property include mains water and electricity, private drainage and an oil fired central heating system.

Epphaven House would make the most perfect holiday home or permanent residence and represents a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone craving seclusion and privacy with the most stunning frontline ocean views in this area of outstanding natural beauty.

The hamlet of Port Quin, popular with walkers and kayakers, is only a short walk from the property across your own land and onto the coastal path. The excellent sailing facilities of Rock are 10 minutes drive, the golden sands of Polzeath beach 7 minutes, Port Isaac of Doc Marten fame is 10 minutes away and Padstow is 25 minutes by car and pedestrian ferry/water taxi. An 8 minutes drive takes you to a thriving farm shop and 15 minutes to the bustling town of Wadebridge offering independent shops and supermarkets.

To find Epphaven House, travel along the B3314 from Wadebridge for approximately 4.5 miles passing signs for Rock and Polzeath along the way. At the sharp right hand bend, head straight over at signs for Port Quin and Polzeath and follow the road for another ½ mile passing Windmill Court Care Home along the way. Take the second turning on the right signposted to Port Quin and Doyden and follow the lane for just under ½ a mile. Turn left at the sign for the coastpath and follow this unmade lane down for approximately 200 yards. The driveway to Epphaven House can be found along on the left hand side behind a five bar gate. The postcode for satellite navigation is PL27 6RB.
