This property offers an incredible opportunity for re-development. Most certainly the finest plot overlooking the estuary, there is the possibility (subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions) to create an unrivalled home with stunning views.
The current dormer bungalow is of good size (approximately 1700 sq. ft), offering a good footprint for a new home. Requiring renovations, it is currently a four bedroom home with a small loft room and a sitting room which offers picturesque views from its large windows.
GROUNDS AND GARDEN
The grounds and location of the property are its best asset. Set at the end of a quiet street, and with no neighbours to the western side, there is nothing to block the incredible views over Crantock beach and out to sea.
The plot is approximately 3/4 of an acre and reaches down to the mean high water mark of the tidal Gannel estuary. At low tide it is possible to walk across to the beach.
To the rear of the house there is a decked area from which to enjoy the views (and incredible sunsets) whist a terrace of flagstones creates a level entertaining area. Steps lead down to a second lawned terrace, after which the land is predominantly gorse and wild vegetation, with a footpath cut through to give access to the shore.
From the road a private drive leads to a small single garage and past a sheltered lawned area in front of the house.
The property is situated on a sunny south-facing slope and enjoys excellent views over Crantock beach, the Atlantic Ocean and the River Gannel, which, being tidal, presents an ever-changing scene with numerous waterfowl exploring the margins at low tide throughout the year.
The Gannel Estuary is nature reserve and is a haven for wildlife. It is a lovely place to explore (when the tide is out) on foot, bicycle or even horseback. At it's mouth is one of the most beautiful family beaches, Crantock, with sand dunes, rock pools and a vast swathe of golden sand.
Newquay is located on Cornwalls dramatic north coast. Attracting tourists and outdoor enthusiasts, the town caters for all tastes. Fistral Beach hosts an international surfing championship each year and is the focus for surfing in the south west. Towan beach, Lusty Glaze and Porth Beach are popular with families while Watergate Bay offers a surfing academy along with the recent addition of Jamie Olivers 15 restaurant. The beautiful Newquay Golf Club, one of many in the area, is approximately one mile from the Old Edwardian. The dramatic cliffs and scenery form part of the South West Coast Path which provides over 300 miles of scenic walks around the coast of Cornwall.
