High Quality, high specification renovation of an imposing property which has created a 4 double bedroom 5 bathroom home with 2 reception rooms in the delightful hamlet of Trelights set between Polzeath and Port Isaac on the North Coast of Cornwall.
Merrywood has had no expense spared by Green and Rock in partnership with WK Gelston Contractors ltd who have cleverly retained the charm of the original 1950`s building yet renewed everything within the property to provide a stunning home. Great attention to detail has been given when choosing the materials at Merrywood whether it be the thin profile heritage aluminium double glazed windows which replicate the original art deco style or the beautiful new anthracite cast iron traditional radiators.
Trelights is a lovely quiet hamlet which avoids all the busy holiday traffic yet is only a mile from the North Coast. On the outskirts of Trelights is the Longcross, a Boutique hotel and restaurant with great Sea Views and only about 1/4 mile from the property.
