About the Owner
'Beam Reach' has been our wonderful holiday home since 2001.The nieces & nephews, our parents, brother and sisters have had many years of wonderful holidays here.Although we live in London, the family is spread across England, and some of them now live abroad.The kids are now all grown up, but we still meet up here in sunny Cornwall especially in the winter (it is the warmest part of Britain!). We love the big rooms, and it's a great house for all the generations together. We can spend all day hanging about the pool (and summers seem longer here), but we've also planted the gardens to be lush and colourful year round.
Year property purchased: 2001
Why this location?
We looked for several years before finding 'Beam Reach'. We wanted something modern: big rooms, big windows, high ceilings, views - no cottages for us! Somewhere for the *whole* extended family to meet up. The sea view was essential, but the huge garden and swimming pool was the surprised that sealed the deal. We bought from the architect who built and treasured the house, we've modernised and upgraded, but we try to keep his original vision.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
Our family say the house is big enough to spend a whole week without leaving the grounds (except for quick trips to the big Tesco's that's close by).
Lounging by the pool. Enjoying the view. Lunch & Dinner outside on the sheltered patio - surrounded by the wonderful garden. Cosied up around the real fire in winter.
But, there is lots to do as well. It's great for Golfers (that's my brother) and Sailors (all of us). We love visiting the Cornish gardens, and this area is famous for them. And then there's the Eden Project, and the wonderful old harbours like Georgetown. The Carlyon Bay Hotel is close by, great for food, and a wonderful Spa (serious pampering).
But, most of all, its that the house is big enough for all of us to spread out and relax.
