Property Description

Imagine waking up to the sunrise overlooking two of England’s best beaches at Sennen and towards Cape Cornwall, and in the evening having sunsets from the terrace overlooking the Land’s End Lighthouse and the Scilly Isles. All this from visitors’ own 270-degree living room (40ft across) designed in the round with seven sets of sliding patio doors leading out onto a huge decked terrace. See top photograph for view looking west and second photograph for view looking east. This house is in the most stunning location nestling high on the headland at Mayon Cliff surrounded by NT land and the dramatic coastline towards Land’s End. Shark Fin is the ultimate architect-designed house with all the very latest hi-tech eco features. Use of the natural environment has been paramount to harness the earth’s energy. A heat pump with two 80-metre boreholes provides zoned underfloor heating to all rooms, solar panels discreetly incorporated into the rear roof slopes provide energy for hot water and photovoltaic panels for electricity generation. Rain is recycled from the roof for toilet flushing and garden taps. Sennen Cove boasts one of the loveliest stretches of sand in Cornwall and still retains much of the original atmosphere of a fishing village with its own life boat stations. A very popular spot for surfers and for families with children. On the beach there is a lovely restaurant, a café and a local village pub ‘The Old Success’. Also two other cafes, tea rooms and local shops are a short walk down the cliff from the property. Visit the nearby Minack Theatre with its open air amphitheatre cut into the cliff looking across the ocean. It is a short air trip from Land’s End airport to the Isles of Scilly.

Very spacious living room in the round with wood-burning stove, rustic oak floor, concealed mood lighting, seven patio doors to fabulous deck overlooking sea. Spacious kitchen with burr oak and handpainted bespoke units with natural granite worktops, granite breakfast bar, Indian slate floor and dining area looking out to the ocean. Large utility with Belfast sink leading to wet room with toilet, both finished in marble and black Brazilian slate. Double bedroom with 6ft bed, views to Sennen Beach, French doors to patio, en-suite wet room (power shower), toilet, finished in marble/glass. Twin bedroom with TV, French doors to patio/garden. Bathroom with walk-in shower cubicle, toilet, mood lighting and finished in natural stone and marble. First floor: Huge triple-aspect double height double bedroom with 6ft bed and additional pull-out bed (for +1), French doors to Juliet balcony and en-suite Travertine and marble wet room with power shower, toilet. High level views from raised area towards Sennen to the east and Land’s End to the south west, and Isles of Scilly.
