Bay dreaming

We discover three fabulous properties in the Seven Bays area, currently on the market with luxury property agents, Rohrs & Rowe.

In this month’s cover feature, we caught up with Martyn Rohrs from award-winning property agents, Rohrs & Rowe. Martyn explained that the Seven Bays area – famous for their fabulous, sandy beaches – should definitely be on the list for anyone looking to buy a Cornish property. We do a little digging into the Seven Bays area, showcasing three spectacular properties currently on the market with Rohrs & Rowe.

Consisting of Trevone, Harlyn, Mother Ivey’s, Booby’s, Constantine, Treyarnon and Porthcothan, the Seven Bays epitomise the ultimate lifestyle by the sea. Think stunning views, sheltered coves, superb surfing, sandy beaches, excellent golf courses and long coastal walks on the South West Coast Path. Not to mention that the restaurants and independent retailers offer some of the finest food and wares that Cornwall has to offer. As you might expect in such a beautiful part of the world, the property here is highly desirable, offering owners the perfect base from which to capitalise on the Cornish lifestyle.

Just 200 metres from Trevone beach you’ll find Rosben, a deceptively spacious detached coastal home with three bedrooms. The living spaces in this charming family home are very flexible with the main sitting room on the first floor. With a wood burner to keep things cosy in the evening plus an attractive ‘beach chic’ décor, Rosben is the ideal beach retreat, whether you’re looking to relocate or seeking the perfect ‘lock up and leave’ investment for those bucket and spade family holidays.

Next up is Tredower. From the outside, the property’s attractive half slate hung elevations make quite the first impression. Inside you’ll find good-sized living accommodation and four bedrooms plus a study on the ground floor that could easily be used as a fifth. The sea views on offer are simply astounding and the first floor, thanks to its extra elevation, offers a breathtaking 360-degree panorama of the entire Seven Bays area.

As well as a double garage and considerable parking, the outside space comprises around three acres of land on the seaward side of the property, protecting your views. The crowning jewel, however, has to be the large deck, accessed via the dining room to the rear of the house and making the most
of scintillating sea views – perfect for a summer barbecue!

Finally we have Trelawney, an exceptional coastal residence that’s been designed to maximise the fabulous sea views towards Harlyn Bay. With four large double bedrooms over two floors, including three en suites, this stunning contemporary home enjoys a very high specification throughout, with an exacting finish that’s rarely seen in Cornwall.

With high ceilings and architectural glazing that floods it with light, the open plan living and kitchen area is exceptionally spacious. One feature of particular note here is the floor-to-ceiling glazing that runs the full width of the living room, offering views of the gardens, the ocean and the horizon beyond.

Outside, Trelawney boasts landscaped gardens with a large patio area that wraps itself around the property. There’s also an impressive seating and barbecue area along with a feature fire pit, great for starry evenings, and at the rear a large separate patio area serves as a sun trap, perfect for soaking up those Cornish summer rays. Other features include a heated outdoor shower – ideal for rinsing sandy toes – plus secure storage for surf boards, garden and beach equipment. All of this plus off-road parking for several cars!
