A detached residence in need of renovation or complete redevelopment, occupying a large plot in an elevated position

Situated along a quiet private lane, away from public view and approaching Porthcothan Bay can be found Kakuri. A detached residence occupying a substantial plot situated in an elevated position, making the most of the lovely far reaching views across fields to the sea and coastline in the distance. Adjacent to the property is access to the coastal path leading to the fabulous beach at Porthcothan Bay.

Kakuri represents an exceptional residential development opportunity to build a contemporary new home on the North Coast of Cornwall, just moments from the beach of Porthcothan and close to the bustling and highly popular village of St Merryn.  The property requires modernisation and refurbishment or complete redevelopment, situated within a generous elevated plot offering distant sea views adjacent to open farmland. Development of Kakuri would of course be subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions.

The current accommodation measures just under 1200 square feet and comprises a large lounge with sea views, exposed floorboards and wood burning stove, a ground floor double bedroom with sea views, 1950's cabinets in the kitchen, a bathroom and separate cloakroom. The first floor has two further double bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes. The property has UPVC double glazed windows throughout.

The extensive gardens and grounds are ripe for cultivation with fabulous views from the elevated front lawn. The driveway sweeps past the property and leads to the detached single garage behind. The gardens extend beyond into woodland and an enchanting private space, ready for landscaping. A leat runs through plot towards the rear of the garden. Services to the existing property include mains water, electricity and private drainage.

The bustling village of St Merryn offers a good range of amenities including several restaurants, a post office/grocery store, a bakers/delicatessen, a petrol station/garage and two Public Houses including Rick Stein's 'The Cornish Arms' serving great food and local ales. There is also a doctors surgery and Primary School with an excellent reputation. The village is a great base from which to explore the surrounding coastline which includes the beaches of Harlyn Bay, Trevone Bay, Constantine Bay, Treyarnon and Porthcothan which are all located within a 3 to 5 mile radius.

The historic and picturesque fishing town of Padstow is just three miles distant 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. Within 9 miles is the thriving market town of Wadebridge on the river Camel, which offers a fine selection of shops and amenities including a sports centre, cinema, a primary and secondary school and a selection of supermarkets. The nearest mainline station is Bodmin Parkway which is approximately 20 miles distant with the nearest airport at Newquay just 13 miles away.

To find Kakuri, leave Padstow and follow the B3276 towards Trevone and St Merryn. Follow this road for approximately 2.7 miles. Pass the Cornish Arms pub and continue into the heart of St Merryn. Head straight over the crossroads through St Merryn and continue along the road for approximately 1.7 miles. Before reaching the Tredrea Inn, turn left onto an unmade road. The entrance to Kakuri can be found a further 250 yards down on the left hand side. The postcode for satellite navigation is PL28 8LN.
