Deceptively spacious and beautifully presented, Leskinnick Terrace was originally built for railway workers in 1840, this charming granite cottage forms part of a terrace winding up from the seafront in Penzance. Each property in the terrace is slightly different, and this house exudes originality and character, benefitting from sea views looking south, and green space opposite.
The property is ideally located, just a short walk into Penzance or the railway station if travelling by train, also easy access to the A30 and all that West Cornwall has to offer. Penzance is a bustling coastal town packed full of history. Boasting a Promenade, Penlee Park, Morrab Tropical Gardens, a leisure centre, plenty of independent shops, interesting coffee shops and restaurants, supermarkets, cinema and newly refurbished Victorian open air lido. St. Michael’s Mount, the jewel in Penzance’s crown, looks magnificent sitting in Mount’s Bay, and welcomes visitors in the summer months, either by boat, or on foot across the causeway if the tide is out. Penzance harbour is close by where day trips to the beautiful Scilly Isles can be accessed or travel by helicopter from the nearby heliport.
Within a 20 minute drive are the stunning beaches of Sennen Cove, Porthcurno and Praa Sands. Picturesque Mousehole and the fishing harbour at Newlyn are a 10 minutes drive. Historic St Ives 30 minutes and Truro only 40 minutes away, making this a perfect base for exploring!
Leskinnick Terrace is a beautiful and much loved townhouse, the owner has gone to great lengths to retain the period features within the property, whilst providing fully modernised amenities. This clever combination creates a cottage of charisma, comfort and tranquillity.
Small entrance hallway leads through the inner hallway door into a spacious living / dining room. The sitting area at the front of the house has a large comfortable sofa, armchair, pine shutters in the windows and wall-hung flat screen TV, with freeview channels, at the back of the room is a dining area with table and chairs, exposed stone walls with built in cupboard and a gas fire. There is a galley style, fully equipped kitchen at the rear of the property with views over the garden. Double oven with gas hob, full sized 70/30 fridge / freezer and dishwasher, with plenty of storage space. There is a further utility room with washing machine and tumble drier, storage for coasts and shoes and the back door to the garden.
The garden is a south facing walled garden offering complete privacy, a terraced area with garden table and chairs, a further area of lawn with vibrant flower beds either side. At the end of the garden is a soon to be converted summer house (available from April 2022), which will provide a warm and cosy place for a coffee or glass of wine in the colder months, or on a rainy day.
The stairs lead up from the sitting room to the first floor, please note that the staircase is steep, with narrow treads so may not be suitable for people with limited mobility. At the top of the stairs is a large, modern family bathroom with large shower enclosure, WC, bidet and basin. There is a single bedroom with feature fireplace, original floorboards, single metal framed bed, chest of drawers and views over the garden and Penzance. At the front of the house is the master bedroom with double sized metal frame bed, feature fireplace, wardrobe, chest of drawers and wall-hung flat screen TV.
The house benefits from central heating and double glazing so is warm and cosy in the colder months. There is WIFI broadband throughout the house. One dog is permitted by prior negotiation but must not be allowed upstairs or on the furniture. Due to the steep staircase the decision has been taken to allow only children over the age of 6, regrettably we cannot allow babies or toddlers in this property.
Parking is usually available outside the house, but it is worth mentioning that the road is narrow, bounded on one side by a garden wall, against which residents park their cars. It is advisable when driving down the lane to position your car wheels onto the pavement, this gives enough room to drive down the lane past the parked cars. The road is not officially “one way” but it is treated as such to avoid problems! Full directions to access the top of the road will be given prior to your stay and the cottage is only six houses from the top. Alternatively, parking can be found in neighbouring roads.
