The property

Newly built to a high-specification, Suntrap Hideaway occupies a secluded position in the pretty village of Sticker, three miles from Cornwall's golden Riviera coastline, next to pasture land and the owner's residence from which it is well screened. A village hideaway which promotes relaxation and is less than a 15 minute drive from the coastal footpath and white-sand beaches at Porthpean and Pentewan, the romantic port of Charlestown, the renowned Eden Project, the award winning Lost Gardens of Heligan and an 18 hole golf course.

The interior design is presented to an excellent standard. Glamourous furnishings, sleek glossy finishes and a light and airy ambience give this detached and spacious bungalow a striking and contemporary edge. A special feature is the hidden courtyard garden which is a huge attraction for sun worshippers and its enclosed perimeter offers peace of mind for parents and dog owners. The wood burner is a stylish statement and combines with under floor heating to provide cosy accommodation for winter breaks. Both bedrooms are equipped with seriously comfortable mattresses and share a large bathroom equipped with a walk-in shower and a bath (with shower attachment).

Scenic walks can commence from the front door step and nearby at Pentewan Valley along peaceful woodland and riverside trails. The cycle hire facilities at Pentewan are popular among families as the trails are both traffic free and level and there are picnicking areas en-route. There is a children's play park 200 yards from the property and on wet weather days the bustling town of St Austell (3 miles) offers a cinema, bowling alley and indoor facilities at Kidzworld. The village boasts an award winning inn/restaurant and a convenience store/post office and Cornwall's capital city of Truro, exclusive waterfront town of Fowey and fishing village of Mevagissey are all within a 10 mile radius.

About the location

ST AUSTELL

Pentewan 4 miles ; Charlestown 1.5 miles ; Truro 15 miles

Just a short drive from the pretty south Cornish coast, St Austell is one of the largest towns in Cornwall. The landscape around St Austell is rich in kaolin (china clay) and this once made the region extremely prosperous. Today, the china clay industry is in decline and tourism has become the mainstay of income for St Austell and its surrounding parishes. St Austell town centre is home to a range of independent and well-known shops, an undercover shopping centre and a Local Produce Market, which takes place every Friday and Saturday. There is also a range of excellent restaurants, cafes and inns – from traditional country pubs to 2 AA rosette fine dining. Just outside St Austell is the iconic Eden Project, as well as the award-winning Lost Gardens of Heligan, Kidzworld, and the Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum. There are some beautiful beaches in this area, too – many with good kayaking conditions – and many miles of coastal footpath to explore. The mainly traffic-free Pentewan Cycle Trail runs from St Austell to Pentewan; here you can enjoy a bite to eat at the village pub or beach burger shack before making your return journey to St Austell. One of St Austell’s main events is the Torchlight Carnival which takes place each November – and of course, the World Pasty Championships, which are held at the Eden Project each March!
