A beautiful and very well presented charecter period residence currently used as a holiday home located within the heart of Penzance enjoying views across the ocean towards St Michaels Mount.
The Spyglass is a rare and very exciting opportunity to aquire a piece of local history which enjoyed a variety of uses over the years. The history of The Spyglass makes for fascinating reading. Tracking the history back it was once the "go too" destination for evening entertainment as it once was a nightclub. Once the nightclub closed it was later transformed into a michelin star restaurant doing wonderful trade along with its immediate neighbour, The Abbey, which was then a boutique hotel. In recent years the property has, and still is, a highly successful holiday destination for many holiday makers. Offered to the rental market through Skyes Cottages it has become a much loved holiday property for many tourists visitng the County. We are delighted to be offering the property to the open market for purchase.
The property is entered via an enclosed porchway which leads into the open plan reception room. This area is lovely and light and is currently being used as the games room for holiday makers. Beyond here there are two ground floor bedrooms, a family shower room and inner hallway which offers space for a small table and chairs providing a pleasant seating area. Beyond the living and bedroom accommodation is the former bar and storage area. This area offers huge potential for any new owner to create additional living or bedroom space. At first floor level there is an excellent reception room a French door in one corner opening to a balcony. From here exceptional far reaching views over Penzance, the ocean and St Michaels Mount can be enjoyed. Like the reception space on the ground floor this area provides a charming relaxing area which is light and airy.
Beyond this space is the kitchen which houses a comprehensive range of base and wall mounted units complimented with timber work surfaces and tiling to splash back areas. There are modern appliances built in including a double oven, gas hob and dishwasher. Completing the accommodation on this level is the third bedroom and a family bathroom. This fantastic property really does need to be viewed internally to fully appreciate the charecter, charm and overall space it has to offer and we as agents are expecting a high level of interest from buyers both locally, nationally and possibly internationally.
