September Cottage is tucked just off the waterfront amongst some of the most historic period houses in the village. Stone fronted, the modest exterior belies the exceptional interior renovations that have been undertaken by the present owner, creating a superb warm, inviting and elegant home. From the first impressions of period windows with wrought iron plant holders, slate steps, wrought iron doggie gate, and past the part double glazed stable door, the quality and detail grabs your attention before even stepping inside. Finishing touches include bespoke premium shutters from Shuttercraft, freestanding Contura wood burning stove, under floor heating and inset spotlights, wood framed double glazed windows and doors at the rear of the property. Possibly the most beautiful feature, and certainly unique, is a specially commissioned stained glass window of St Anthony's lighthouse, fitted to the side of the bay window in the master bedroom.

The elegant resort of St Mawes sits on the tip of the Roseland Peninsula on the south Cornish coast and boasts some of the finest day sailing waters in the country. Recently described by The Telegraph as 'effortlessly classic and increasingly chic' the village has an active community, family friendly beaches, boutique hotels such as Olga Polizzi's legendary Tresanton and the stunningly refurbished Idle Rocks and St Mawes Hotel, sailing club, restaurants, galleries and shopping for daily needs.
The Roseland Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with dramatic coastline, National Trust land and pretty harbour villages. An enduring holiday destination, the Hidden Hut Beach Cafe at nearby Porthcurnick Beach, has been described as the 'hottest destination in the county, if not the country' and just beyond the beach at Rosevine is the Driftwood Hotel with its Michelin starred restaurant. The vibrant harbour town of Falmouth across the bay, reached from St Mawes by passenger ferry, was recently named by Sunday Times readers as the best place to live in the UK. The cathedral city of Truro, with a wide range of commercial facilities and direct rail link to London is 19 miles away and Newquay airport is less than an hour's drive.
