The third property to be featured in Blue & Green Tomorrow’s cottages4you series is Shark Fin, a scenic coastal eco-house in Cornwall.
Imagine waking up to the sunrise overlooking two of England’s best beaches at Sennen and towards Cape Cornwall, and in the evening having sunsets from the terrace overlooking the Land’s End Lighthouse and the Scilly Isles. All this from visitors’ own 270-degree living room (40ft across) designed in the round with seven sets of sliding patio doors leading out onto a huge decked terrace.
This house is in the most stunning location nestling high on the headland at Mayon Cliff surrounded by National Trust land and the dramatic coastline towards Land’s End.
Shark Fin is the ultimate architect-designed house with all the very latest hi-tech eco features.
Use of the natural environment has been paramount to harness the Earth’s energy. The house has a heat pump with two 80m boreholes which provide zoned underfloor heating to all rooms. Solar panels are discreetly incorporated into the rear roof slopes to provide energy for hot water and there are photovoltaic panels for electricity generation. Meanwhile, rain is recycled from the roof for toilet flushing and garden taps.
Sennen Cove boasts one of the loveliest stretches of sand in Cornwall and still retains much of the original atmosphere of a fishing village with its own life boat stations. It’s a very popular spot for surfers and for families with children.
On the beach there is a lovely restaurant, a cafe and a local village pub, The Old Success. Two other cafes, tea rooms and local shops are a short walk down the cliff from the property.
Visit the nearby Minack Theatre with its open air amphitheatre cut into the cliff looking across the ocean. It is a short air trip from Land’s End airport to the Isles of Scilly.
