The large slate flagstone floored kitchen with its traditional Aga and painted wood kitchen is a beautiful room to cook in or eat breakfast with your friends and family. There is also a pantry with the original meat hooks in place which now houses the fridge freezer and forms a general storage area. From the kitchen you can walk into the spacious utility room and then into the downstairs cloakroom.
Upon opening what used to be another main entrance door, you see a traditional well pump (not in use) and another door into what has got to be one of the best wet rooms that you could wish for. With its large glass floor mounted screen, twin rainfall shower heads and a wash basin set into a granite worktop on a Maple cupboard, this is great after a hard day on the beach! Incidentally, there are 8 superb beaches (Trevone, Harlyn Bay, Constantine Bay, Booby's Bay, Treyarnon Bay, Porthcothan, Padstow Beach and Tregirls) that are all within a 20 minute drive which makes Tregonna House the ideal location for beach holidays and coastal walking enthusiasts. There is also a lot of water sports available in Rock which can be easily accessed via the water taxi in Padstow.
Elsewhere on the ground floor you have a separate dining room, a beautiful lounge which also has an open fire that can be used and a traditional style conservatory which is great to sit in and relax.
