To be marketed for the first time in 48 years. A fabulous opportunity for a discerning buyer to acquire an impressive, and beautifully presented, broad fronting, southerly facing, four bedroom, two reception room, dormer style residence, affording great sea views, garage, generous private off road parking, gardens, and located within one of Porthleven's finest residential roads.

This distinguished and impeccably presented, southerly facing detached home, has been the subject of much improvement over the years, having an 'art deco' style throughout the property. The residence was built in the 1950's, and offers high ceilings, complemented by a light and airy ambience further highlighted by the large south facing windows. Terrific elevated sea views can be enjoyed from the front facing rooms which look down towards Porthleven's Clock Tower, and ocean beyond.

The home has been stylishly decorated throughout in neutral pastel shades, and fitted with new carpets and floor coverings. The property has painted rendered external elevations, under a pitched concrete tiled roof, UPVC double glazed windows, and warmed by an oil fired central heating system. The oil fired combi boiler has recently been installed.

Upon entering the porch, an opening leads into the gracious entrance hallway, where further doors lead off to the generous kitchen/diner, living room, dining room, two double bedrooms, bathroom, cloakroom, and side entrance vestibule with access to the back garden. An open tread staircase ascends from the kitchen to the first floor accommodation, offering two further bedrooms.

The home is centrally positioned within the generous plot, offering front and rear lawn gardens, summerhouse, together with stocked flowering borders, and various specimen shrubs. The rear enclosed garden has a secure gate, making it safe for pets and children.


Porthleven is a thriving and hugely popular fishing port with a distinctive harbour which is now a designated listed monument. An exciting, and eclectic mix of galleries, superb restaurants, pubs, shops, fishmongers to name a few, trade throughout the year enhancing this exciting all year round destination. The granite harbour walls have been designed with an inner and outer harbour, which provide a sheltered sanctuary for day fishing boats. Porthleven's iconic clock tower overlooks the outer harbour wall, and stands alongside its local beach with the magnificent Loe Pool stretching to the east. Loe Pool is Cornwall's largest natural lake which is surrounded by gorgeous National Trust land, which enjoys some of the finest coastal walks the UK has to offer.


From the centre of Porthleven, proceed up Fore Street, and take the left hand fork just past the Post Office, which leads into Torleven Road. Procced up Torleven Road, and just before the mini roundabout turn left into The Crescent, where the property can be found on the right hand side.
