The property

Sea Drift, a welcoming detached abode, is nestled near the shore in the delightful Carlyon Bay, Cornwall which is situated adjacent to the picturesque harbour village of Charlestown.

Relax and unwind in this charming retreat, ideal for families,or friends looking to enjoy a coastal escape in an area rich in interest and beauty.

Large windows flood sea Drift with natural light giving it a bright, airy open feel, It is styled with a mid-century Modernist aesthetic and Nordic influences offering clean lines, a reduced colour palette and natural materials throughout, such as the waxed elm flooring and the Cornish stone fireplace and surround giving a calming, scandic feeling to the decor, Furnishing includes designers such as Ercol, Tappley and Myer and decoration includes examples of local arts and crafts.

Downstairs, Sea Drift offers open plan living which includes a well-presented sitting area and a spacious dining area where you can enjoy meals together as a family.

After a day of adventures rustle up an evening meal in the well-equipped kitchen (plus utility area) with everything you need for a self-catered stay.

Relax and read on the sofa in the upstairs hall area or enjoy the stunning views where you can see for miles over the Cornish moors and villages.

Retire to one of the four bedrooms: a double, a king size and a twin on the first floor, as well as a convenient ground-floor double, to catch a relaxing night's rest in this very quiet and peaceful area, (apart from the soothing sound of wind and sea and the call of birds).

The sizeable front garden of the detached property gives a sense of space and privacy.

The rear garden is enclosed with planting and a lawn for soaking up the sunshine or perhaps a game of badminton.

The garden also offers outdoor space for drinks or dining.

Walk approx 100m up the road onto the coastal path, cut through the houses, taking you straight to the clifftop fields with breath-takingly beautiful views across the wider bay area.

From there in one direction, you can take a short wander down to Carlyon Bay beach, which is just on your doorstep!

If you follow the Coastal path in the other direction, there is a short and incredibly lovely walk with fields on one side and sea views on the other into the picturesque village of Charlestown.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.
