Unusual style, character residence with immense charm and traditional features located in the sought after old town area

Sitting tall and proud in the sought after old town area of Padstow, The Slate House boasts an impressive three storeys and sits moments from Prideaux Place & Deer Park and a short walk to the harbour. Behind its imposing slate façade, you will find a host of traditional features and an upstairs view to shout about - across the rooftops to the church and all the way to the Estuary. Think bare brick walls, open fireplaces, oak beams and slate slabs underfoot. Cook up a breakfast in the country style kitchen, get cosy around the wood burning stove in the open plan living/dining room then round off your day in one of the four spacious and characterful bedrooms. It is such an unusual and individual style property it is important to view to really appreciate its characteristics.

From Fentonluna Lane, there is a small paved driveway with parking and the benefit of a single garage. A bright red entrance door with original stained glass sets the scene to this unique property. In the ground floor hallway, stairs rise to the first floor and a step up takes you into the kitchen. Exposed brick walls, granite surfaces and upstands and a range of country style cabinets sit side by side the brick built chimney breast recess housing a Rangemaster cooker. Beyond is a utility/shower room complete with shower enclosure, wash basin, WC and space and plumbing for white goods.

Back in the hallway, lead on into the living/dining room. Light pours in from the French doors and a second door that both open onto the patio at the rear. Dine at one end and then relax around the wood burning stove at the other with a wood floor underfoot.

Up on the first floor there is a separate cloakroom and a narrow corridor leading down to a stylish bathroom with bath and shower above and exposed brickwork. The corridor ends with a small double/nursery bedroom.

The landing then opens up to a useful space with cupboard and delightful window seat, somewhere to just stop and take in a view of the town. From here is a wonderful double bedroom with a large exposed brick and slate feature fireplace and floor to ceiling bay window with shutters flooding the room with light. Up on the second floor are two further double bedrooms, one with a recess with shelving and hanging rail, the other a dual aspect room with an exposed brick feature fireplace and some lovely views to the Estuary over the roof tops of Padstow.

To the rear of The Slate House, you will find a slate patio, a delightful spot for al fresco dining or a glass of wine in the evening. Steps lead down to a pleasantly enclosed private garden area with ample space for garden furniture bordered by fence and Cornish stone walling and some established shrubs. The present Vendors have obtained planning permission to put in a three storey extension, further details can be found under the planning application number PA19/07454.  Services to the property include mains water, gas, electricity and drainage.

The historic and picturesque fishing town of Padstow is located on the North Coast of Cornwall and offers an extensive range of cafes, public houses and restaurants, none more so than Paul Ainsworth's Michelin starred No.6 and of course Rick Steins esteemed Seafood restaurant.
