House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Originaly built in the 1930's, St. Michael's has been totally restored to the very highest standard. It enjoys truly spectacular 180 degree frontline sea views. To the east you see the Rame Peninsula, to the west Looe Island and out to sea the famous Eddystone lighthouse. The wildlife in the area is superb, and we've seen Dolphins swimming in front of the house.
In the fully fitted new kitchen we have a solid English oak table with two benches and two chairs. There's a wall mounted Panasonic LCD TV linked to Sky+ and a Bose ipod speaker. In the sitting room are 3 comfortable sofas and a large armchair. There's a 42 inch wall mounted Panasonic plasma screen with the full SKY+ package including HD. In all the bedrooms we have lovely white New England style beds, side tables, dressing tables and chest of draws.
The sea views from the kitchen, drawing room and the two upstairs suites are breathtaking. With floor to ceiling sliding french doors you feel like you're on a ship.
The large (13m x 7m) terrace has loungers, a dining set and a charcoal BBQ. It's totally private, well protected from the wind and is literally a 2 minute walk to the most stunning beach; the coastal path is also 2 minutes away.
To the rear of the house (along a private lane) is secure off road parking for two vehicles and there's an additional space for a third car at the front of the property. At the far end of the garden is a small quiet country lane that leads down to the beach.
