Craving beachfront living? You’ll struggle to find a better bit of property porn than this.

Threwithian Cove House is a very special home, sitting in an area of outstanding natural beauty in Cornwall where most of the coastline is owner by the National Trust.

It sits on top of a cliff and has its own set of steps directly down to a gorgeous beach.

So you can see why it’s on the market for offers over £2.5million… but there’s a catch.

While the location is dreamy, the interiors of the home have apparently fallen into disrepair – and the listing doesn’t show any photos inside the property.

Built in the 1930s, it’s thought the house will either need a lot of renovation work, or will be smashed down to make space for something new.

If you are up for a major project though, this would certainly be one with bags of potential.

The four-bedroom house is in a stunning spot on the Roseland Peninsula, and offers panoramic sea views of Gerrans Bay and Nare Head, along with a beach within easy reach.

The current owners bought the property in the 1990s and have used it as a second home, but have decided to sell now they do not get to visit it as much as they would like.

It offers 2,301 sq ft of living space, with a big reception hall, a kitchen, a dining room, a sitting room, and a drawing room on the bottom, and four bedrooms, plus a dressing room and two bathrooms, upstairs.

Its stairs take you right down to Porthbean beach, a stunning spot that locals love and that hasn’t yet been overtaken by tourists.

David Hoskings, from estate agents Lillicrap Chilcott, said: ‘This property is in Rosevine, on an extremely sought-after stretch of coast. Even by residents of the Roseland Peninsula it’s known as one of the most desirable spots.

‘It’s a very quiet area and not much comes up for sale there, especially on the seaward side.

‘And what makes this even more rare is you have just under two acres and steps down to a beach.

‘The house is in the best position in its plot and you have an area of woodland with a path meandering through to the steps down to the beach, Porthbean.

‘It’s a lovely beach, there’s no car park and you have to walk along the coast path to get to it.

‘Someone could go in and redevelop or do a complete refurb. With the scarcity of such sites it wouldn’t surprise me if someone knocked down what’s there and built their forever home.’
