An exciting opportunity to acquire a beautiful, detached property set in a stunning and private location. The original cottage, we believe, dates back to 1898 and has been extended and updated through the years by the current owners and boasts a stunning contemporary style wrap-around living space.
Set along a private lane, hidden from the roadside and located close to Maenporth Beach in an elevated position amongst the trees within nearly an acre of terraced gardens above the wooded valley, enjoying incredible views. The house has four bedrooms with master en-suite, three reception rooms – two of which have wood burning stoves. The spacious kitchen has a Rayburn that provides heating and hot water for the house and there is a useful utility plus a ground floor cloakroom. The property also has oil heating and a water supply from a bore hole. To the outside there is ample parking, a garage, greenhouse and a further large shed/outbuilding. A viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this stunning property and its location
Located just half a mile from the beach at Maenporth and just over a mile from the beach at Swanpool, Oak Cottage is tucked away along a private lane and set in an elevated position above a wooded valley where there is private and direct access to the South West Cornwall Coastal Path. At Maenporth is the well renowned restaurant ‘The Cove’ and a popular beach café set in this beautiful sandy cove with fantastic views into Falmouth Bay. On the beach there is parking and a range of water sport activities on offer such as kayaking, scuba diving and sailing.
Pendennis Castle sits on the horizon and there are superb coastal walking opportunities from the beach in either direction. The road from Maenporth continues to the nearby village of Mawnan Smith and the harbourside town of Falmouth is just two miles away.

The terrace enjoys a southerly aspect and stunning views and provides the perfect seating area to enjoy a summer barbecue. A paved driveway, edged with Cornish hedging, leads to the property where there is parking for several vehicles. There is a greenhouse and a large shed/outbuilding and part of the garden is arranged into terraces with the pump house with the filtration system for the water supply housed on a lower terrace. The garden is interspersed with seating areas and a pathway with a pedestrian gate provides your own private access to the South West Cornwall Coastal Path.
