Chy Kala literally translates to "Straw House", and this lovingly designed property is one of only two, two storey load bearing straw bale homes in the whole of the UK. Impeccable attention to detail has been given to the design and build of this wonderful house, which is sympathetic to its beautiful countryside surroundings featuring handcrafted English Green Oak, Douglas Fir, Chestnut and Larch throughout.
Entering this home there is a central reception hall, with a downstairs WC to the right. Off the hallway is the large well equipped kitchen/breakfast room. Also off the hall is a light and spacious lounge/dining room with comfortable sofas, woodburner, TV and french doors leading out to the garden. The whole of the downstairs has slate tiled floors which benefits from under floor heating throughout.
A beautifully hand built light oak staircase leads you up to the first floor with a roomy landing, which features a balcony with views over the garden and countryside. Off the landing there is the master bedroom with double bed and en-suite bathroom with bath and separate shower. The second bedroom has twin beds and then third bedroom can either be set up as a bunk room or twin room as desired. All three bedrooms have lovely countryside views. The family bathroom with large double shower and bath is also on this floor.
Outside there is a gated driveway and enclosed gardens with lawn and patio area with seating. There is also a wood store where you can help yourself to logs for the woodburner.
Chy Kala is located in the pretty little village of Newtown near St Martin, on the Lizard Peninsula, and is within walking distance of the Prince Of Wales pub which serves excellent food. Chy Kala is the perfect base for exploring the rest of The Lizard peninsula area of Cornwall and the nearby town of Helston is a just a 15 minute drive away.
