Delightful 1930s house with sea views in Cornwall

Azura is a spacious property built around 1930 at the entrance to the village of Porthtowan, close to Truro in Cornwall. The house is a fantastic example of a property of this period and still benefits from many 1930s features including a delightful art deco fireplace in the sitting room, high curved ceilings, stripped wood flooring and lots of wooden panelling.

The accommodation includes a very spacious reception hall with a large sitting room and separate dining room, both of which enjoy the delightful sea views. There are two ground floor bedrooms and a master bedroom on the first floor which opens onto a large balcony which makes the most of the sea views; there is a further bedroom on this floor.

The main garden area is located on the seaward side of the house and this is mostly laid to lawn with an attractive stone terrace which also enjoys the views of the Atlantic.

Porthtowan derives its name from the Cornish for ‘cove of sand dunes’ and owes its character to its popularity in Victorian and Edwardian times when local residents from surrounding areas flocked to the beach and along the cliff-top walks, which are still splendid. The village also has shops, post office and a pub while the nearby village of St Agnes is a lively community with a wide range of amenities.

The guide price is £595,000. For further information please contact Savills on 01872 243 200 or visit
