A charming 4 bedroom cottage full of character enjoying a tranquil location just a short walk to the beach
Jubilee Cottage is a charming 4 bedroom character cottage which has undergone complete restoration by the current vendor to create a cottage of impeccable quality and clever design, providing comfortable and homely accommodation which would suit both permanent and holiday living. It is pleasantly located in an extremely quiet positon within the small hamlet of Treknow, just minutes from the famous surfing beach at Trebarwith Strand. Features of note include sliding sash windows each with custom built shutters, stripped wood flooring, master en-suite bathroom with Victorian roll-top bath, a wood burning stove and a farmhouse-style kitchen with Rayburn and underfloor heating. Externally, the cottage has a small landscaped courtyard garden to the rear, a private and enclosed courtyard to the front and further gardens to the side. There is also off road parking for approximately two cars. It is worth mentioning that the property is currently an extremely successful holiday let and is available as seen, fully furnished apart from a few personal items. It is clear the vendor has taken a great deal of care and attention in restoring this cottage and for that, we recommend an internal viewing at the earliest convenience.
Approached from a quiet lane, park on the slate paved driveway and wonder through the gate into the enclosed front courtyard. A stable door opens straight into the farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room. A rustic reclaimed pine kitchen awaits you, complete with working oil fired Rayburn, granite worktop, a ceramic Belfast sink and a slate floor with underfloor heating beneath. A stripped pine staircase rises to the first floor and doors lead to the dining room, ground floor shower room and sitting room. The dining room is a fantastically unique room, cleverly fitted with custom hand built storage beneath the bay window and custom built shutters. The painted wood panelled walls finish the room off beautifully as does the stripped wood floor. The ground floor shower room is perfect for washing off the sand after a day at the beach, complete with wc, wash hand basin and a sunken shower tray with a glass shower screen and thermostatic shower over. Worth mentioning the local quarried slate floor too! From the kitchen, step through to the inviting sitting room that is focused around the wood burning stove and exposed Cornish stone fireplace. French doors with custom built shutters open out onto the patio while the use of driftwood as lintels is a real feature of note as is the oak floor. Head through to the sunroom and you are met with an abundance of light from both the Velux roof windows in the vaulted ceiling and from the French doors that open out onto the front courtyard. A set of open tread ladder style stairs lead up to a galleried bedroom which sits above a comfortable ground floor double bedroom with an ornamental fireplace and dual aspect windows with shutters.
On the first floor, you will find a lovely master double bedroom with a front aspect sliding sash window and custom built shutters. The beautiful master en-suite bathroom has a stunning Victorian roll-top bath, crisp white sanitary ware, a reclaimed pine floor and painted wood panelled walls. There is a family bathroom with a crisp white suite, heated towel rail, sliding sash window with shutters, painted wood panelled walls and a contrasting tiled floor. Along the landing are two further bedrooms, one is a single room with a stripped wood floor, recessed shelving and a sliding sash window with custom built shutters and window seat beneath. Above this is a large piece of driftwood, cleverly fitted into the recess. The last bedroom is a small double, currently with bunk beds, with a feature Cornish stone and slate fireplace, stripped wood floor and a sliding sash window with shutters to the side aspect.
Externally, there is some great low maintenance space in the form of a small private courtyard to the front of the property accessible from both the kitchen and sunroom. To one side of the property is a landscaped garden offering an area of slate patio coupled with a raised lawn and well stocked raised borders. On the other side of the property is a further area of lawn bordered by a Cornish stone hedge. Attached to this side of the cottage is a Cornish stone built store, home to the oil fired boiler and a great place to store the bikes, surfboards and wetsuits! Additionally, there is a slate paved parking area with ample off road parking for approximately two cars. Services to the property include mains water, electricity and drainage with an oil fired central heating system.
Jubilee Cottage truly is a deceptively spacious and impeccably restored cottage located in a wonderful setting and an opportunity to view should not be missed.
Treknow is a small and peaceful hamlet situated on the North coast of Cornwall between the villages of Trebarwith Strand and Tintagel. The stunning tidal beach at Trebarwith Strand is less than a 10 minute walk through the valley via the footpath close to the cottage which is popular with tourists throughout the year. Trebarwith provides several beach shops, two cafes and The Port William cliff top bar & restaurant with its staggering sea views. There are beautiful cliff top walks either side of the valley with one direction leading to Tintagel and the other to Port Isaac. Further up the valley are lovely woodland walks and the popular Mill House pub and restaurant. A range of local amenities can be found in the neighbouring village of Tintagel offering a pharmacy, infant and primary schools, a selection of restaurants and public houses and a post office. The village is also famed for its links to the legend of King Arthur and is home to the castle ruins. For a more comprehensive range of shopping facilities, the towns of Wadebridge and Camelford are within easy reach by car.
