How amazing is this? An open-air pool, a bubbling hot tub that catches the last rays of the evening sun and undulating countryside views, all just a stroll from the gorgeous Helford River...family holiday homes don't get better than this! Piran House is big and contemporary, with split-level accommodation over three spacious floors. Most rooms open onto the garden-facing terraces so you can live seamlessly indoors and out when the sun shines. Set in a private lane in the beautiful Helford valley, this is the ideal place for pottering about on the water, exploring the gorgeous sub-tropical gardens nearby or enjoying the golf course, tennis courts and health spa just a few minutes' walk away at the Budock Vean Hotel. With a spacious sitting-room looking out through three sets of French doors to the wonderful countryside views, a family-room with home cinema and table-football, and five bedrooms sharing four bathrooms and a separate cloakroom, there really is space to spread out. The fully equipped kitchen includes a dedicated wine fridge for perfectly chilled holiday drinks and plenty of space for creating fabulous feasts – this really is an ideal house for family gatherings, celebrations and friends' reunions.
The living areas at Piran House link effortlessly together so everybody can move around and interact with ease. The sitting-room has huge windows, oak-flooring and uninterrupted views over open countryside with glimpses of the creek through the trees below; sofas cluster around a ceiling-hung Focus fireplace and a dining-table is set before the views. French doors open onto the terrace, the perfect place to sit back with a glass of wine and listen to your music through the Arcam iPod system while watching more energetic souls splash about in the pool and hot tub below (please supervise children around the pool and hot tub at all times). There is unlimited Sky Fibre broadband and the separate family-room – complete with table 'foosball' – has a sofa and armchairs set before a 50" wall-mounted television, Apple TV and Netflix HD Movies package, Blu-ray player and a home cinema system with surround sound, all making for perfect family film nights. The light-filled kitchen has sleek white units, top-of-the-range Siemens, Miele and Liebherr appliances and a big island unit for preparing those holiday feasts. There is a fridge/freezer with ice-making facility and a wine fridge to keep the bubbly nicely chilled. Doors lead out to a west-facing terrace with chunky teak outdoor furniture, a great place for evening meals as the sun goes down. Piran House has five large bedrooms, the master suite with far-reaching countryside views, a super-king size bed, Egyptian cotton bed linen and an en suite bathroom with both a bath and a double shower cubicle. The lower ground floor has two en suite bedrooms and two more bedrooms which share the family bathroom. Three of these bedrooms have doors onto the garden terrace so you can nip out of bed and into the pool for an early morning wake up swim. The garden is mainly secluded and covers a quarter of an acre, with lawns to the side and a gently sloping area left as a meadow to encourage butterflies, bees and wildflowers with a little wooded copse and a tiny unfenced pond down at the bottom. The 15 metre heated pool is available from the beginning of May to the end of September and the hot tub is heated all year round.
