THE LOCATION A three-acre sandy beach and crystal-clear sea awaits visitors to this beautiful fishing village. Only ten miles from Helston and twenty-one miles from Falmouth Coverack offers peaceful, yet easily accessible, living. Unlike some fishing villages there are no single-track roads to Coverack and indeed a double decker bus services the village.
The community is an important reason why so many people move to Coverack and our Dave who works in our Heather & Lay Falmouth office and lives in Coverack, champions the sociable community as a major reason for choosing Coverack as home. Dave would be very willing to talk to anyone wishing to know more about the activities in the village.
The local shop is run by Phil & Olivia offering most provisions and Bryn & Rob run Archie's Loft where you can get Cornish Roskilly's ice cream. The village 'local' is The Paris Hotel, built by the Redruth Brewery back in 1907 and named after the liner SS PARIS which ran aground on the headland on Whit Monday 1899. Ian & Lou are the fantastic hosts here offering good quality food and drink (don't forget the Wednesday night quiz) or if it is just fish and chips you are after then pop along to Mark at the old lifeboat house. Robin & Chris can teach you windsurfing, or, hire out kayaks or paddle boards and Marshall & Hannah offer a wide selection of local crafts/gifts in the Old Mill House.
Plenty of good walks are on the doorstep along the coastal path where hidden beaches, wildlife, flora and rocky outcrops present great interest, peaceful and spectacular scenery.
THE PROPERTY Built in the early 1900s this handsome and substantial villa lies in a magical spot where all of its windows, to the front and rear, overlook the sea, coast and village.
Hill Crest views are uplifting and exciting, yet it is very much part of the village, with the harbour, pub and beach just a few moments walk away.
Much loved as a private home for holidays, the house has been looked after without expense spared with care taken to preserve its considerable period charm and 'feel' whilst introducing much style and modern comfort to create an inspired home.
The house is double fronted with four large front facing box bay windows to enhance the outlook and elegance of rooms. Accommodation is light and bright with 9' 5" ceiling height downstairs arranged over three floors, all nicely proportioned with five bedrooms including the spectacular 31' second floor fifth/family room with its two dormer windows looking to beach sea and village.
'Living' space is sociable and spacious with two sitting rooms, each with fireplaces, a dining room and lovely little 'look-out' or snug to relax with the paper and a glorious view.
The large family bathroom has a roll top, claw foot bath positioned to observe the view and there is a shower room/WC in addition.
The garden is arranged to front and to the rear where there are four large terraces overlooking the bay and coast, the 'top' terrace with verandah providing shelter if needed. To the side of Hill Crest is an area to park several cars.
It is interesting to note a Mr Hocking was a noted resident in the census of 1911 and famous artist Charles Napier Hemy is believed to have painted Hill Crest for the Tate collection as at one stage it would have been sitting alone on the hillside.
