About this listing
Want to get away from it all? This spacious, listed building boasts magnificent, panoramic sea views over Newquay Bay & Harbour and is the perfect location for a short break or extended vacation.
Perfect for a private getaway, nestling against the cliffs above Towan Beach is this unique gem of a detached, characterful, period cottage with fantastic sea views – probably the best in Newquay. Four hundred years old and retaining a wealth of original features Towan Vean is nevertheless comfortable, homely, well-equipped and close to beaches. The sea views may be enjoyed whilst enjoying your early morning cup of tea in bed and also from the balcony whilst relaxing in the hammock. Fishing boats and leisure craft sail in and out of the historic harbour and local children often make sport leaping off the harbour walls into the clear turquoise waters below. Just below the house is the coastal path which leads to the harbour in one direction and to the headland in the other; the facilities of the town are also within easy walking distance (the Harbour Restaurant is just 100 yards). There are 11 beaches in the Newquay area all offering golden sands and clear waters - no wonder Newquay is such a popular family resort.
The house has been completely refurbished and has fitted wardrobes, a bathroom with a power shower, as well as a deep, cast iron bath, fully fitted kitchen including gas hob and oven, fridge, freezer and dishwasher.
The property benefits from an unusually long 29ft reception area with two original fire places, a very spacious utility area with a washing machine and a downstairs cloakroom.
There are two balconies overlooking the sea and a small, private garden. The house has gas central heating and wooden floors throughout and benefits from its own parking. This property is truly one-of-a-kind.
