Dating to the mid 19th Century, this Victorian semi detached property has been in the same ownership for over 30 years and has been a much loved holiday home. The property has been extremely well cared for and retains period details but would now be considered ready for renovation. Surprisingly light and airy and with generous ground floor accommodation, the property has the potential for extension as many of the other properties in the row have been (subject to the required consents).

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.
The following services are available mains electric, mains water and mains drainage. Electric heating is provided from night storage heaters.
