A STUNNING SCANDINAVIAN STYLE ECO HOME COMMANDING UNOBSTRUCTED RIVER, COAST AND COUNTRYSIDE VIEWS Situated in its own peaceful and private setting north of the Helford River, Alta enjoys the most magnificent southerly views across unspoilt countryside to Polwheveral Creek and towards the Lizard peninsula. The property is only 15 minutes away from blue flag beaches. Alta is set within about 1.5 acres but unlike other newer builds the beautiful gardens have been developed and matured over a period of about fifty years. The home, built in 2013, incorporating eco- friendly technology, sources water from its own borehole with a UV filtration system and uses an air-source heat exchange unit which delivers underfloor heating to the ground and first floor. The construction materials used include both granite and cedar wood combining thermal efficiency with Scandinavian styling. The doors and windows, also Scandinavian, are of a very high quality finished in powder coated aluminium. The whole achieves what can only be described as a master class in architectural design. Alta sums up the Scandinavian lifestyle term ''Hygge', setting the bar for sustainable and contemporary Cornish Living. Inside, the reception hallway makes an immediate impression with dual aspect double height Velfac glass panels introducing light from multiple angles into this large galleried area which includes an oak staircase. The sitting room also has oak floors with a wood burning stove. Both sitting room and the open plan kitchen living area have an expanse of full length Velfac windows that slide open welcoming the outdoors into the home fully integrating the triangular Travertine terrace. The open plan kitchen and living room is particularly special and also has a wood burning stove. There is an exceptional central island with a granite surface, wood burning stove and a Rangemaster 110 oven. There are five bedrooms, including a deluxe master suite and a delightful guest suite. Two of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms (both with baths and showers) and there is a family bathroom. There is a shared balcony (of about 6m in length) while the principal bedroom suite has its own private balcony with a wide sweeping panoramic view of about 220 degrees.
