Wheal Owles Count House sits proudly in a World Heritage Site and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - an iconic and handsome property with beautiful views from every window and aspect.

Approached from Truthwall, just outside St Just, the double-fronted cottage is an integral part of the historic landscape - surrounded by open moorland, fields and just a short stroll from the SouthWest Coast Path.

With two good-size double bedrooms upstairs (one boasting an en-suite shower room), both offering expansive rural views out to the coast, and immediate views of an impressive engine house nearby, this home is one of a kind! The family bathroom is also upstairs, with a modern suite, velux window and window to the side.

On the ground floor, is the third bedroom or a useful office space, with understairs storage and a window overlooking the back garden. At the front of the ground floor, is a dual aspect living room with a toasty, inset woodburner framed with a granite lintel and slate hearth. Across the hallway, is the rustic, warm kitchen with a distinctly farmhouse feel thanks to the tiled floor and bespoke units with plenty of space for a family kitchen table. Windows to the front and rear, mean a light, bright space where you can wash the dishes staring at the sea in the distance.

To the front of the property is a fantastic sunroom/porch, which would be a great place to sit and enjoy sun throughout the day. Alternatively, step out to the paved sun terrace at the front which is enclosed for safety with granite walls - an ideal place for loungers or growing sub-tropical plants wanting full sun.

To the side of the property, is access in to two separate cellar rooms, both with mains power and one with plumbing and a ceramic Belfast sink - these spaces could be used for a variety of things including possible extension of the living space above downwards. To the rear of the property is a lawned and gravelled garden with well-populated flower beds with a variety of shrubs and plants. Expansive rural views can be enjoyed from the garden - as is true of most rooms in the property!

Botallack is a sought-after area just outside St Just in Penwith - made famous more recently by the emergence of BBC's Poldark series, the landscape is unspoiled and reflects the mining heritage of the area. Botallack has a popular pub called the Queen's Arms, and lots of scenic walks on your doorstep; either down to the rugged coast path or across the heather-filled moors to ancient stone circles.

St Just is a very popular town with a thriving community and a varied mix of busy shops and businesses. Properties here are predominantly granite cottages harking back to the tin mining era and St Just's prosperous heritage.

Boasting two fantastic butchers, four pubs, traditional grocers, and two convenience stores, St Just has all the essentials covered, as well as offering well-respected art galleries, popular eateries, and some stunning coastal walks nearby.

There is both a primary and secondary school in St Just, both rated as Good by Ofsted most recently. Penzance is approximately 8 miles away.
