A BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED SIX BEDROOMED PERIOD VICARAGE WITH TWO INDEPENDENT COTTAGES AND A STUDIO The Old Vicarage, facing South West, beside the Church of St John the Baptist, is bounded by walled gardens. This spacious period home has a broad fronted Cornish granite faade with a slate roof and tall multi-paned sash windows. Much restoration has taken place in recent years including the installation of full double glazing, new roof as of 2017 and oil-fired central heating. The buildings which are around the main house have been charmingly converted to create two independent cottages and a studio, all fitted to a very high standard. The south facing entrance to the house leads into a welcoming reception hall floored with the original tiling and with a high ceiling featuring a beautiful archway. It then leads on to the kitchen at the far end of the hall and off the corridor is a turning staircase to the upper floor. The first room on the left is a study with a tall window overlooking the garden, period fireplace and a tiled floor. There is a refitted downstairs cloakroom restored in the appropriate period style. The very spacious sitting room has exposed floorboards, tall sash windows ensuring generous natural illumination, an original marbled fireplace and many other period features including a central ceiling rose. The impressive dining room is next door and has an original marble fireplace, tall sash windows and open floorboards. The kitchen/breakfast room has been fitted with Shaker style units and a large oil-fired Aga. A small set of stairs leads down from the kitchen to a lower level where a utility room, store, boiler room and cellar are located. The wide staircase turns up to a half landing and then to the galleried landing where Bedroom 5 is located with views to the sea and adjacent to a re-appointed shower room. The remaining five very spacious bedrooms enjoy views over the garden. They all feature original character and include period fireplaces and high ceilings. The family bathroom is at the rear of the house with a claw footed roll-top free-standing bath. The Studio, which sleeps two, is found in the western most corner of the grounds and has been created as a charming holiday residence for two. It has an open-plan living area with a pull-down bed, a high vaulted ceiling, a limestone tiled floor and a modern up to date kitchen. A solid oak door leads into a superb well fitted shower room. The Studio has planning consent to be used as a holiday accommodation. Arch Cottage also sleeps two and is next to the main residence in a secluded courtyard, neighbouring ''The Stables', again beautifully converted with exposed granite walls providing excellent accommodation with both comfort and charm. There is a spacious living area with high ceiling and limestone/oak flooring, a modern kitchen and double bedroom and well fitted shower room. The Stables which sleeps four has an open-plan living area with limestone floors and a high vaulted ceiling with two sets of patio doors opening to the courtyard. There is a modern kitchen with oil fired Aga and integrated appliances. One bedroom above has oak floors, sloping ceilings and a porthole window offering views to the sea, the other, a double bedroom is on the ground floor with en suite shower room. There is an additional well fitted family bathroom featuring a whirlpool bath. Both The Stable and Arch Cottage have planning consent to be used as residential annexes as well as holiday accommodation. THE LOCATION Pendeen, situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is half a mile away from the historic Geevor Tin Mine and Heritage Centre providing a fascinating glimpse into Cornwall's industrial past as well as being less than a mile from the North Coast. The nearest beaches are Portheras Cove, sitting below Pendeen Lighthouse, and Boat Cove, both with delightful sandy beaches. The South West Coast Path is easily reached providing cliff-top walks along this rugged and breath-taking coastline, much of which is in National Trust ownership. A walk to the top of Eanes Carn, at the end of Church Road, will be rewarded with views to the Isles of Scilly in the distance. Pendeen itself has a church, a primary school, a nursery, a shop, a village hall, and public houses. A few miles to the south is St Just where a greater range of facilities can be found, including Cape Cornwall Secondary School. Land's End and the picturesque harbour village of Sennen is a few miles further on where famous surfing beaches can be found. Penzance, around 8 miles distant, with shopping and educational facilities, has the greatest range of services in West Cornwall, including the terminus for the Penzance to Paddington railway line. The coastal road to the north leads to the famous St Ives, with many cafés, restaurants and art galleries set around the harbour and beaches. OUTSIDE The Old Vicarage enjoys a generous 1.5 -acre plot with a driveway that leads up to the house passing through a granite walled gated entrance which is electrically operated. The front of the house features a spacious car parking area with generous lawns to the sides of the driveway. The lawns are planted with trees and mature shrubs and in the spring bluebells and snowdrops welcome the new growing season passing the baton to hydrangeas and rhododendrons as the year progresses. The rear of the property features an enclosed courtyard where Arch Cottage and The Stables are located. As the aptly named Arch Cottage implies this area is entered through a high castellated archway. The gardens then continue to fully surround the property and also includes the small area known as ''The Secret Garden'. This is a piece of ground to the rear of St John the Baptist Church. It can be noted that the boundary walls are Grade II Listed and, as is often the case with former Diocese property, some other covenants have been agreed. Details on these are available.
