House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
The property was architect designed in 1954 and has remained in the family since. It has recently benefited from a sympathetic restoration and is an ideal base to explore Newquay and Cornwall. Although built post WW2, the interior has an art deco feel to it with its curved staircase original bathroom suite, moorish styled arches and parquet flooring.
It is perfect for families with children, has 2 spacious gardens both in the front and rear with a covered pargolla in the back garden.
Similarly, it is ideal for golfers, surfers and walkers with all amenities easily walkable. A car is not necessary for a Newquay based holiday, however a car is advised if you wish to explore the attractions of the County.
As a child (during the 1960's and 70's), I used to spend my summer holidays in this home and have tried my best to re-create the ambience without compromising on modern day comforts.
