Situated in the heart of this sought after Cornish fishing village is this attached, three bedroom period property of immense charm and character. The residence, which benefits from oil fired central heating and solar panels for the electricity, has double glazing and enjoys views over the village, towards the Bickford Smith Institute Clock Tower and out to sea. The well proportioned property, which is said to have been built in the 1870s has an impressive, imposing local stone facade and retains many period features.
A real feature of the property is the addition of a ground floor, two bedroom flat which would seem ideal for providing an extra income stream through holiday or long term letting (subject to any necessary planning and consents). This area could also be utilised by a dependant relative with ease of access to the village with all of its amenities nestled around the harbour. The property benefits from oil fired central heating.

To the front of the residence is a pleasant patio area whilst to the side is a good sized garden which is mainly to lawn with many well established plants and shrubs. There are further patio area and a greenhouse. Accessed from the outside is a sizeable cellar with good head height which provides storage and houses the boiler, water tank and solar panel controls.
The accommodation of the ground floor flat comprises an entrance area, shower room, open plan lounge/kitchen/diner and two bedrooms.
Porthleven is a vibrant, picturesque fishing village and mainland Britain's most southerly port. The village is renowned for its many highly regarded restaurants, long beach, surfing, rugged coastline and clifftop walks. Community groups are thriving within the village with sports' clubs and a prize winning brass band which can be heard echoing around the harbour on many a summer's Sunday evening. Local amenities include shops, Public Houses, galleries, supermarket, doctors' surgery and a well regarded primary school.
The more extensive amenities of Helston, with national stores, cinema, leisure centre with indoor swimming pool and secondary schooling are just a few miles away. On the outskirts of Porthleven is the Penrose Estate which is run by the National Trust and provides delightful walks around Loe Pool which is Cornwall's largest natural freshwater lake.
