Description

Fair Skies is a 60’s built bungalow newly transformed by its current owners into an unashamedly modern, white-walled open-plan living area with stunning views. Attractive fabrics, comfortable seating, modern kitchen and bathroom make this an enticing and practical holiday home.
The location is very special, situated on Foxhole Lane, 30 metres from the village’s two beaches and the South West Coast Path, close to the heart of the old village with quite wonderful vistas from the living room and main bedroom.
The living room has comfortable sofas, tables, lamps, TV (with DVD player), radio and CD player. There is a small desk if you need to work, and of course Wi-Fi. On the bookshelves you will find guide books, maps and files of local information.
The house is exceptionally light and sunny, with a spacious modern kitchen area. All appliances in the kitchen (including a dishwasher and washing machine) are new and the electric oven has a gas hob. The kitchen is well-equipped. The owner is a keen cook so if you too are a keen cook you will find all the utensils and appliances you may need.
The dining area in the living room opens through french-doors onto a decked area with table and chairs and that wonderful view for ‘al-fresco’ dining and barbecuing.
The house is fully central-heated with a gas- fired boiler.
The newly fitted bathroom has a large walk-in shower, washbasin, heated towel rail and WC with a tiled floor. Flooring throughout the rest of the house is oak-effect vinyl with floor rugs in the bedrooms and living room. The small interior hallway contains a cupboard with cleaning appliances and utensils, garden cushions, a folding cot (available on request) and a child booster seat. There is a shoe rack and pegs for your coats and boots, wet or dry!
Leading from the hall, both bedrooms are simple and restful. The main bedroom has a large picture window overlooking the sea with a king-sized bed, dressing table, chair and soft bedside rugs. Bedding is in keeping with the cool grey and sea green colour scheme. The twin bedded room faces south and has a marine, navy and white scheme. Both bedrooms have wardrobes, bedside tables, lamps, towel stands, mirrors and hair driers.
Outside, access to the house is on the level via a ramped path with a very small step to the door. Fair Skies benefits from extensive parking, unusual in Gorran Haven; there is access via a gravelled entrance to a gated, tarmac drive with parking space for two cars (or boats).
The sunny garden surrounds the house and looks out over the sea to the Gwineas Rock. The garden is fenced/ walled and gated with flower and shrub borders and a sizeable lawn in addition to the small lawn surrounding the deck; it is safe for children. There is a bench outside the front of the house that catches the morning sun; a perfect spot for a morning ‘cuppa’.
Throughout the house there are pictures and photographs reflecting locations and artists of the area.

Area

Gorran Haven is an old fishing village halfway down the south coast of Cornwall. It is at the end of a quiet road to the sea, so no through traffic. The area is designated as one of outstanding natural beauty and Fair Skies, although modern, lies in the conservation area of the village.
Via the slipway there are two good sheltered and safe sandy beaches. There is an excellent village store, Cakebreads, and two or three cafes in season. This makes the village a cheery place during the day for families and children. There is no pub, which we love, as the village is quiet in the evening.
Within easy reach, walking or driving, there are more secluded beaches (Vault and Hemmick are nearest).
Fair Skies is brilliantly situated for the beach, kayaking, canoeing, paddle-boarding and swimming or launching your boat; walking from the front door to the Coast Path takes seconds.
Whatever your age or interests this part of Cornwall has much to offer; The Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden Project, the gardens and castle at Caerhays are all less than 30 minutes away.
