Situated in the heart of the historic twin fishing villages of Kingsand/Cawsand on the beautiful Rame Peninsula in South East Cornwall is Spindrift beach house, a five bed-roomed Grade II listed, roomy, Georgian ‘house on the beach’.
This beach-styled holiday home is perfectly placed in a shoreline location, and embodies the private beach house concept. The layout of the house takes advantage of the exceptional sea views, while the interiors and décor feel sumptuous, exuding tones and elements of luxury and comfort.
The ground floor plays host to the warm and enticing living areas which are bold in space for a property of this age and character built c.1740. The main living area is refined with a whitewashed beach-feel, boasting large and comfortable sofas as well a wide screen Smart TV and ceiling mounted speakers.
An intimate dining room features a large dining table which comfortably seats up to 10, with a large original stone fireplace. Our kitchen is fully equipped and offers a large breakfast table complete with a high chair for the little ones.
Spindrift provides a unique blend of space for a large group, luxury and comfort, with just the right amount of practicality you would expect in a property that has direct access to a beautiful pebbly and sandy beach (an outside shower, sensible flooring and resilient soft furnishings).
This is coastal living at its best.
