Gwyn Mergh offers the most astounding views across Portreath Beach and the Atlantic beyond. The property is set in a quiet location on a small no through road approx. 200m from the lovely sandy beach and is walking distance from a bistro and the village shops.
This lovely home offers a rare opportunity to create your own luxury coastal home either by reconfiguring and extending the present house, or to create a brand new Grand Designs Home from scratch by demolishing the existing property (subject to acquiring the relevant consents). It would make an excellent self build opportunity. You will see from the main photo that some lovely new homes have already been built on this road over the past 5 years.
Currently configured as a one bedroom home Gwyn Mergh sits in an elevated position above Battery Hill and approached via steps to a large decked terrace. The property is in a good condition and well presented. The accommodation is currently over two floors. On the ground floor there is a lovely living room with picture windows offering stunning views of the beach, sea and the coastline. This room can be divided by the glazed doors to create a dining room or 2nd bedroom.
To the rear of the house there is a bright large fitted kitchen with access to the breakfast room/bedroom 3 and the family bathroom is accessed from the inner hallway. From the kitchen there are doors onto a small outside decked area with a storage shed and steps that lead onto the rear upper decked area.
Stairs from the inner hallway access the very large triple aspect master bedroom which has views over the beach and an ensuite bathroom. From the bedroom a door opens onto the upper deck which is ideal for surf watching and stairs that lead up to a small steep cliff garden.
Currently a lovely family home it could also be a great holiday home and has recently been a very successful holiday let.
