Cove View is an exclusive development of four highly energy efficient homes sitting at the southern edge of the most southerly village in England. Within walking distance of the coast and with sea views from the bedroom windows, these properties will offer a superb lifestyle for those who love the outdoors.
Beautiful scenic walks & stunning beaches where wildlife abounds. Bird spotting, whale watching & occasional Dolphin sightings will entertain you during days which will be bookended by beautiful morning sunrises and stunning evening sunsets at each horizon.
The homes are stone clad to the front with rendered elevations to the rear under a slate roof. Each property has parking for two cars and good sized gardens bordered by a combination of Cornish stone walling and hedgerow.
Each property features a kitchen/diner with patio doors leading out to the garden. Local design studio Now Kitchens, who showcase British-made Masterclass Kitchens, will customise the kitchen to your own personal style. Purchasers can choose from a range of contemporary or classic designs using a beautiful colour palette in either matt, gloss or textured finishes (depending on stage of build). Each kitchen is provided with a full suite of integrated Neff appliances, including fridge/freezer, dishwasher, double oven, induction hob, and extractor hood, complemented by stainless steel hardware and stunning quartzstone worktops.
Four bedroom properties include a separate utility room equipped with sink, washing machine and tumble dryer. The lounge also features patio doors out to the garden.
There is a separate study (or 5th bedroom) while upstairs there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The maaster bedroom has an en-suite and separate walk in wardrobe.
In order to achieve very high standards of energy efficiency, insulation and U-values, the houses are constructed with Nudura ICF (Insulated Concrete Form). This allows the walls to be a highly insulated concrete thermal mass providing warmer homes in the winter and cooler in the summer with minimal energy usage and cost as a result. There is underfloor heating to both ground and first floors, installed with individual room controllable thermostats.
With its dramatic and historic stretch of Cornish coast The Lizard peninsula, the most southerly part of the British mainland, is a place apart. A combination of the mild maritime climate and complex and unique geology has produced an area with a distinctive character, well known for its rare and unusual flora and where the famous call of the Cornish chough is never far away.
The houses are located a short walk from the village and benefit from sea views to both the east and west of the southern coast of the Lizard Peninsula. One of the most beautiful, unspoilt areas of the southern Cornish coast with amazing coastal scenery it is perfect for walking, cycling, sailing and fishing and as you drive south from Helston it really does feel as if you are entering a different world. National Trust sites on the Lizard range from the dramatic coastal scenery around Lizard Point to the beautiful ancient woodland around the Helford River. Two miles to the north of Lizard Village lies the secluded Kynance Cove, considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world with its turquoise sea and white sands, hidden from view among towering cliffs. There are many interconnected caves to be explored at low tide but high tide can be quite an exciting experience on a stormy day. A few miles further along this stretch of coast the beautiful picture-postcard harbour at Mullion Cove protects a small fishing fleet from the ferocious Atlantic storms.
The Lizard village itself is a thriving coastal community throughout the year and has a local public house, junior school, nursery, various shops, a doctors surgery, garage, post office, galleries, restaurants, cafes, as well as football and sports clubs. There are several craft shops, gift shops and galleries. This is also an area which boasts a number of scuba diving schools. Since 1751 there has been a lighthouse on Lizard Point, warning shipping of the dangers of this beautiful but treacherous coastline. Just offshore are the Man o' War rocks. Below the point is the Old Lifeboat House.
The Lizard peninsula which is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is rich in history and it is said that the remote location and many creeks allowed smugglers to continue to function here long after their business had been successfully eradicated elsewhere.
The ancient market town of Helston (11 miles) is the gateway to the Lizard peninsula and offers a range of supermarkets, senior schooling, sports centre and a general array of shops and so forth. Falmouth (20 miles) and the Cathedral city of Truro (24 miles) offer more comprehensive facilities including private and public sector schooling.
