Nestled in the atmospheric Carnbargus area of North Cornwall in a wooded valley, not far from the glorious Perranporth beach and the surfing hotspot of St Agnes, sits this luxurious five-bedroom property for sale.

Making great use of a large plot of land while sensitively connecting to the wild landscape that surrounds it, this new-build is designed with exceptional attention to detail.

The property makes the most of contemporary design while staying true to its coastal location – pale yellow and stone-grey materials echo the sand, pebbles and cliffs that characterise the Cornish landscape.

In the entrance hall the height of the space is emphasised with a dramatic full-length stone wall, providing a backdrop to a minimalist floating steel staircase leading up to a grand galleried landing.

A full-height stone wall also features in the kitchen and dining area, creating a feeling of vast spaciousness. Full-length window walls wrap around the kitchen area with discreet sliding doors, filling the room with an abundance of light, all while providing a glorious connection between indoors and the modern garden and natural pools outdoors.

The kitchen is fitted with a bespoke Nolte-designed island, Gagganau appliances, two double ovens and Silestone worktops, alongside natural cork flooring and a Nordpeis wood burner.

The downstairs living area is slightly sunken into the ground, allowing relaxing views of the water to be enjoyed from the sofa at eye level. A state-of-the-art Bang & Olufsen home cinema system further adds to the cosiness of the living space. Practical additions of a boot room, pantry and utility room can also be found on the ground floor.

Up the floating staircase is a grand main bedroom complete with two dressing rooms and an ensuite bathroom. The luxurious main bathroom boasts a steam room and freestanding bathtub (all four of the double bedrooms benefit from ensuite bathrooms).

Meanwhile, the garden is similarly designed with thoughtful attention to detail, making the most of the calming properties of water. The swimming pool and wildlife ponds are filled naturally by a local spring, and connected by a gently running waterfall. The garden is also a haven for wildlife, planted with consideration to the local biodiversity. Elsewhere, a (silent) Villeroy & Boch hot tub sits on a raised terrace, and a lowered fire pit area creates an additional zone for relaxation.

This property is on the market for £2,500,000 via Knight Frank.
