Sammyshute is one of the most wonderful houses on the Roseland Peninsula in Cornwall. Its private, spectacular setting is peerless: sitting centrally within its acre of grounds, most of the principal rooms face the view to Nare Head and Gull Rock across Gerrans Bay, Pendower and Carne Beaches and miles of unspoiled coastal farmland.
Constructed in the 1950s, the property itself has four/five bedrooms and has been greatly extended to provide a good family home. Reception rooms include a light-filled sun room and a wonderful dining room which is effectively open plan to the kitchen. The master bedroom suite is currently on the ground floor.

A staircase rises from the reception hall to the first floor which has three further spacious double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a study. The house provides around 2,000sq ft of accommodation overall.

Outside is an excellent elevated sun terrace which is wonderful for entertaining all year round. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn with established and maintained tree and shrub-lined borders. To the side of the house are a pair of small ponds and a small timber studio sits in the west hand side of the garden.
The nearby hamlet of Rosevine is extremely popular as it offers a little-known retreat near the beaches and coast. The house is also well positioned for Gerrnas, Portscatho and St Mawes, all of which have good amenities and are excellent gateways to the rich diversity of coastal pursuits in the area as well as excellent walking.
The guide price is £1.25m. For further information please contact Lillicrap Chilcott on 01872 273473 or visit www.lillicrapchilcott.com.
