Port Quin Farmhouse is a wonderful property up on a hill on the north Cornish coast overlooking the hamlet of the same name, and the sea below. The property was stone-built in the early 18th century and has lots of character. The interior is modern and provides spacious rooms for family time and entertaining; the large sitting/dining room almost spans the entire length of the house, with a woodburner and triple-glazed window.

The bedrooms upstairs include the impressive master suite and two further bedrooms – one has a fine duel aspect.

Outside to the front of the house is the terrace which has far-reaching sea views. Beyond are the lawns and the raised vegetable patch. The area behind the house is on a long lease from the National Trust.

Port Quin Farmhouse is located in a peaceful setting on the North Cornish coast and the hamlet is small, but nearby Port Isaac has a good selection of pubs, Rock is four miles and Padstow 14 miles by car.  

The guide price is £900,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01392 848 842 or visit http://search.knightfrank.com.
