Location

The Count House and St Piran’s Point occupy arguably one of the most sensational clifftop locations in Cornwall, adjacent to the SW Coast Path. Accessed through a former MOD site, now privately owned, our clients properties offer ultimate privacy. Nearby beaches of Holywell and Penhale Sands are a short walk away and for day to day needs Cubert has a village shop and pub etc, with the Cathedral City of Truro 12 miles.

Being adjacent to the Coast Path, our clients are able to simply walk out of their door and within minutes are at Ligger Head, where they can watch the setting sun. This really is a very special location indeed.

Properties

The Count House, is a substantial 5 bedroom family house which has been beautifully and tastefully renovated by our clients, with many character features throughout fused with modern bath and kitchen fittings.

The most recent works include the completion of St Piran’s Point, a detached holiday let (with full residential consent also) which comprises an open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area and double bedroom, with en-suite. The views from the let are quite mesmerising, looking straight down Penhale Sands towards Perranporth. The projected turnover for the holiday let is c. £45,000 pa.

Historical Note

The Count House was built in the 1860s as a counting house for the nearby Penhale Mine. The property was used by the mine captain for business purposes and he would conduct auctions from the Oriel window at the front of the property and miners would stand below and bid for underground leases (or pitches). St Piran’s Point was the smithy and carpenters shop for the mine.

From approx 1900 at the end of the profitable mining, the property became a farm and was privately owned.
In 1939, The Count House was compulsory purchased by the MOD and initially used for training for the US troops for D-Day landing training. The names of some of the GI’s are inscribed on the rear of the staircase at the property – dates and address of the soldiers providing a history snapshot. Later it was used alongside the Penhale army camp and military training area for general troop training & military exercises. The house was renamed as Ligger House and designated a listed building status due to its historical Oriel Window. Latterly during this period, St Piran’s Point was used as a mess hall for the SAS / SBS squad who used the main property for accommodation. The MOD continued to use the house for non-operational purposes and dormitory style accommodation for 33 SAS troops until our clients purchase in 2012. Our clients restored the property & reinstated it’s original name The Count House.

St Piran’s Point – has recently been converted into a luxury boutique holiday accommodation which sleeps 2.
