House that sits in the woods but has sea views too on sale for £1.5million

Okay, so let’s say you’re ready to ditch city life.

Now, it’s time to dither over where you want to go. Do you want to be by the sea? Up in the countryside? In a cabin in the woods?

If you’ve got £1.5million handy, this house could mean you don’t have to choose.

Behold Maenvale, a luxury lodge house that has the best of both worlds.

The rustic property sits in a wooded valley, surrounded on three sides by woodland and countryside, but has stunning views of the sea, too.

That’s thanks to its location 200 years from Cornwall’s Maenporth Beach, offering views of Falmouth Bay and beyond.

The house itself is pretty glorious, too, having replaced an old bungalow that stood on the site until 2007.



Inside is 2,100 sq ft of space, with a full-height galleried reception hall, a large sitting room, one bedroom with an en suite, two further double bedrooms, and a family bathroom on the ground floor.

The first floor has a main bedroom with an en suite and its own balcony, plus the kitchen and dining room, which opens out to another balcony.

Outside the house has a double garage and sits in about a quarter of an acre of grounds.

The property is at the end of a private lane and just a few hundred yards from Maenporth Beach, so you can easily take a stroll to the seaside every morning.



Jamie Bettsworth, from estate agents Lillicrap Chilcott, said: ‘The house was built to a very individual design in 2007 and hasn’t dated at all.

‘It’s a super light and spacious, open-plan home in a lovely valley and just a couple hundred yards back from Maenporth Beach.

‘Michelin-starred chef Michael Caines has taken over the Cove restaurant recently so you have one of the best chefs in the country a short walk away.



‘It’s three miles from Falmouth, widely regarded as the best place to live in Cornwall, and close to the gateway to the Helford River.

‘The house is in a beautiful level garden, and in a gorgeous wooded valley.

‘You can see right across to the Roseland Peninsula.

‘It has a lovely atmosphere: you feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere.’

The estate agents say they have had ‘good interest already’, so if you are keen on moving in, move quickly.
