Property description

Merbien Farmhouse is a deceptively spacious and charming Cornish farmhouse situated just outside the popular Watergate Bay in a small rural hamlet. The accommodation, which comprises five bedrooms in total, offers plenty of character with two Inglenook fireplaces, beamed ceilings and deep window sills. The ground floor accommodation offers a large sitting room, separate dining room and additional reception room which is ideal as a snug or office space. The kitchen overlooks the garden with a useful utility room adjoining. Both the ground floor wet room and first floor bathroom have recently been replaced and are modern and attractive rooms with contemporary tiling and fittings.

Currently a successful holiday let with tariffs of just under £2000 per week in the summer months, this is an excellent investment opportunity to acquire a character property within a short distance of the most sought after stretch of coastline in Cornwall.

The stunning sandy beach is within a short walk and some of the finest sandy beaches in the UK are within a short drive including Fistral Beach, Mawgan Porth and Constantine Bay. Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant is just a half a mile distant, and Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant in Padstow just under 20 miles away.
