Humble Beginnings

Before withstanding an extensive facelift, the peculiar and unique structure located in north Cornwall appeared far less tempting. Adorned with cracks and weeds, the carport was merely a shell before being transformed into an extravagant residence.

The prior carport was attached to a workshop located next to a cottage owned by Unique Home Stays, who purchased the carport and transformed it into a luxury holiday home.

The structure was demolished, with a new building erected on a slightly larger footprint of 20 by 33 feet.

Luxury Holidaymaking

The holiday home rental market has become an extremely desirable and profitable industry in recent years.

The one-bedroom property boasts a collection of high-end features such as a yoga deck, built-in barbecue and hot tub. It is located on a winding, picturesque country lane near Perranporth beach, making it the ideal holiday home.

Features and Design

The design for the holiday home was inspired by bird hide shelters and incorporates protruding windows that allow stargazing from the bed for romantic breaks away. The lighting is designed to mimic the appearance of sunshine through trees.

Consider utilising Bespoak Timber Frames to create your own unique oak carport.

The property has also been decorated with high-quality furniture, and the bedroom contains built-in wardrobes crafted from rustic wood and ample storage space.

Contemporary peephole windows and Silverwood shingle walls complete the stylish, trendy look, and it features a state-of-the-art kitchen complete with a double oven, coffee machine, induction hob and dishwasher. The living area is open-plan.

The property’s one bedroom features a king-sized bed with an en suite bathroom. The bathroom’s bathtub has been uniquely crafted from concrete to suit the fashionable industrial appearance of the home. There is also a dramatic wooden double sink and an open-rain shower looking over the garden, as if it’s immersed in nature.

Outdoors, there is a secluded covered deck featuring a seating area with a fire pit and a handmade concrete barbecue. The raised deck is home to a hot tub overlooking uninterrupted valley views, perfect for a couples getaway.

The holiday home recently opened for bookings and slots are filling up quickly.
