Property photo shoot, The Count House

The Count House in Holywell, Newquay.

I was extremely lucky to do a property photo shoot of this wonderful, historic Cornish house recently. It has a unique location, perched on top of the cliffs between Holywell Bay and Perranporth Beach.

A former Mine Captain’s house, it was originally built in the 1860’s and was Penhale Mine’s counting house.

You can see the house from the end of Perranporth beach and always appealed to me because of it’s unique, apparently isolated, location.

The Count House is extremely private, standing as it does at the top of a cliff on the headland at Penhale Point. But it doesn’t feel isolated. From outside as you walk up to the front door, the sea, cliffs and sky are overwhelmingly, wonderfully present. If you love nature and the sea, The Count House will amaze you.

Inside the house the rooms are spacious with beautiful many wooden floors and beams. The scenery out of the windows are second to none. Spectacular views out over the open ocean on the one side and the dunes above Holywell on the other.

Visiting it didn’t disappoint. Inside and outside the house is stunning. It is listed with Lillicrap Chilcott Estate Agency here: Lillicrap Chilcott. And the property photo shoot of the Cornish delight has gone national, appearing on the pages of the Daily Mail this week: Beautiful Cornwall home with incredible views goes on the market | Daily Mail Online
