Cornish country house near Padstow

Zanzig House is a relatively modern property built in a Mediterranean style with light airy rooms and a south-facing aspect, and lots of outdoor space to enjoy the summer; the house has been recently refurbished.

The main reception rooms were designed to make the most of the views which stretch out over the ponds in the garden and down across the valley. Accommodation throughout is generous and includes a new bespoke kitchen and a very large sun terrace to the rear of the house.

Accommodation in total comprises: entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, study, cloakroom, guest suite on the ground floor; upstairs are the master bedroom and three further bedrooms (one en suite), family bathroom and a games room.

Outside, the gardens have been skilfully planted, and the three spring-fed ponds attract an abundance of wildlife. Behind the house is a good-sized garage, and there is another separate outbuilding which is accessed via another sun terrace, a brilliant sun trap which has a Jacuzzi and a barbecue.

There are two stables and a three-acre paddock – the property owns the land down to the stream at the bottom of the garden.

Zanzig House is situated in a quiet hamlet about a mile from St Issey in Cornwall, and just five miles from Padstow, a beautiful harbour town with a selection of good shops and an abundance of restaurants and pubs.

The guide price is £1.2m. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01392 848 842, or visit
