Number 3, Tolcarne Stores, is a carefully formed marriage between old and new; a contemporary living environment that overlays the original industrial use of the building. The large warehouse openings are re fitted with stable doors and full height, fully glazed windows. The external hardwood shutters, when closed emphasize the original opening and allows adjustment to the level of privacy. These are complemented to the rear, by the southwest facing, french doors each opening onto a landscaped river terrace. Within the property two triple height spaces, front and back, provide a spatical connection through the house. Top light these vertical gallery spaces, with glass balustrades at each landing, maintain the proportion of the original building and add a sense of drama as you ascend the suspended solid oak staircase. The adjacent walls are finished in lime plaster containing a recycled green glass aggregate.
The main ground floor living space has a modern fitted kitchen, shower room and WC, living and dining areas, and is set against a natural river charcoal slate with under floor hearing. The granite walls are left exposed.
The first floor offers two double bedrooms, a slate finished bathroom with shower and sunken bath. The bedrooms are light and spacious with top light from voids in the attic eaves.
The second floor provides an open master bedroom. This generous space, with its full height ceilings to the roof soffits, has en suite bath and hand shower plus double basin unit finished in natural sandstone and solid oak. The first and second floors are finished in oiled solid French oak with under floor heating.
Externally a new slate roof with copper gutters and down pipes provide a local context to the building which during the course of its life has been both a fish warehouse and a fire station. The hardwood doors and windows are custom designed and manufactured locally with sustainable sources. The building is sprinklered throughout for fire protections and is alarmed. The river is utilized for geothermal heating and provides both the hot water and under floor heating.
Newlyn lies on a much loved stretch of coast that runs between lands end and Lizard point. Its unique character lies as much in its history as a vital fishing village as it does as an artists colony and the home of the famous newlyn school of artists. Its original medieval village pattern still remains with intimate streets and cobbled passages weaving in and out between granite stone cottages and sail lofts. Newlyn harbour is home to an active fishing fleet. The links with the arts first forged over 150 years ago, remain with artists still living, working and exhibiting in its many galleries and studios. With the recently extended Newlyn art gallery, Newlyn continues to florish as a vibrant centre for the contemporary arts in Cornwall.
