LOCATION The Old Tea Hut enjoys a much coveted seaside location on Whitsand Bay. The bay is widely regarded as a "world class" coastal location and is prized for its mild maritime climate. The extraordinary panorama encompasses views including the iconic landmarks of Rame Head to the east, the Eddystone Lighthouse on the horizon and westerly views to Looe including Looe Island, Hannafore Beach and extends as far as Dodman Point and The Lizard on a clear day.
The constant passage of commercial, naval and pleasure craft around Whitsand Bay approaching the entrance to Plymouth Sound, makes this an extraordinary, distracting and inspirational outlook. The broad sweep of Whitsand Bay boasts over three miles of golden sands with seasonal RNLI Lifeguards and the crystal clear waters are renowned for bathing, surfing, kayaking and all manner of watersports.
Within the eye line of the property diving trips to HMS Scylla can be seen, the ex-Royal Navy frigate was sent to the bottom of Whitsand Bay on March 27th 2004, to become an artificial reef, Since then the wreck has enjoyed lasting success with dive trips and provides a home to a community of marine life, Whitsand and Looe Bay are officially designated Marine Conservation Zones noted for the abundance of marine flora and fauna. Tregonhawke and Treninnow Cliff lie within an Area of Great Landscape Value and is also a designated County Wildlife Site.
Nearby the villages of Kingsand and Cawsand (2 miles) both have a welcoming community, are home to the Rame Gig Club and are well equipped with a variety of local shops, pubs and restaurants together with a sailing club and other facilities. The Rame Peninsula is relatively little known, often described as 'Cornwall's forgotten corner', forming part of the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with quiet beaches and outlined by the South West Coastal Path. The Mount Edgcumbe Country Park, an 800 acre area of coastal woodland and open hillsides, is possibly one of the most beautiful and varied locations of Cornwall, lies on the edge of the village.
Portwrinkle (4.5 miles) is home to the Whitsand Bay Golf Club. The village of Anthony (3 miles), has a popular primary school, also within the catchment area of two Plymouth grammar schools, with their excellent reputation.
The town of Saltash has a long waterfront with deep water moorings and a Waitrose store on its northern outskirts and the city of Plymouth with its historic Barbican and beautiful waterfront and marinas lies within commuting distance. The mainline railway station can be accessed at St. Germans (4 miles) providing an excellent commuting facility (Plymouth - London Paddington 3 hours).
DESCRIPTION The evocatively named "The Old Tea Hut" started life as a beachside tearoom and now comprises a full residential and freehold chalet which perfectly captures the essence of the marine environment. Presented in the quintessential beach chalet style the property offers spacious and versatile accommodation which is well suited to owner occupation or holiday letting. Our client currently has the property configured as an owners wing (2 Bedroom) and a self contained letting wing (2 Bedroom) which provides a superb income stream.
The chalet is south facing and each of the principal rooms take full advantage of the extraordinary views over the sea and surrounding coastline. Only 150 yards from the beach the property is perfect for those who wish to indulge in water based leisure pursuits, or for observing the unique natural flora and fauna on this unspoilt coastal slope, one can clearly hear the sound of the waves rolling onto the beach below and the skylarks singing in the sky above - a truly magical and deeply immersive sensory experience.
OUTSIDE A unique feature of the property is the very generous and level lawned gardens with an open south aspect over the sea and surrounding coastal landscape. The gardens are believed to extend to about 0.15 acre and there is a shed, garden store and pretty Summerhouse, strategically positioned to take full advantage of the views. Patios provide the perfect spot for al-fresco dining and the gardens provide a private and secluded environment. Permit parking for 2 cars in Field 3.
