Kelvin House is a splendid Georgian home positioned in a prime village location with far reaching coastal views. The Grade II listed property was originally built circa 1780 and has recently been sympathetically refurbished to form a comfortable and thoroughly functional modern home; whilst retaining many of its original period features. The accommodation briefly comprises of three or four double bedrooms, three or two reception rooms, a traditional fitted kitchen, two shower rooms and a wet room.
Entrance from the street is provided via a traditional panel door with overlight and pedimental feature over, leading into a vestibule that has a decorative glass door. A corridor provides access to the living room directly to your left, with a working fireplace and integrated period cabinet.
The corridor continues through to the kitchen, a fantastic area to host guests; boasting many period features complimented by the convenience of modern appliances and a light and spacious extension which forms the dining area. Bi-fold doors open to provide access to the rear courtyard and steps up to the garden.
A wet room with overhead shower, w/c and hand basin is perfectly positioned on the ground floor to benefit those coming in from the beach or the garden.
A majestic staircase extends from the ground floor to the second floor through the centre of the property. A real feature of the original period architecture well preserved.
The accommodation on the first floor can be flexible, providing either two bedrooms and a shower room or a bedroom and second reception room. The room to the front of the property enjoys direct sea views and a period fire place.
Two further bedrooms are located on the second floor, with the front bedroom enjoying views out across Cawsand Bay towards the Mew stone, an island located just off the Devon coast. The smaller bedroom to the rear benefits from a view of the maze of quirky Cornish gardens where each property lays its own mark.
The rear garden is private and enclosed with direct access from the house via some steps from the dining room/ lower courtyard. Set over two levels and enjoying the afternoon sun the garden provides space for entertaining friends as well as space for those with green fingers.
The twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are set upon the shore Plymouth Sound, in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The village is well equipped with amenities and a vibrant community all year round, but really comes to life in the warmer months as one of the premier tourist destinations on Cornwall’s Forgotten Corner.
The local primary school at Fourlanesend is rated “Good” and there are plenty of clubs and societies active year round in the village to cater for all ages. There are a number of cafes, public houses and shops which offer a diverse range of products to suit all tastes.
Transport links are good, with ferries from Cawsand beach at the bottom of the road directly into the Barbican, Plymouth during the summer months. City Bus provides a reliable year round bus service to Torpoint and Plymouth that departs from a bus stop only minutes away.
