This superbly presented double fronted home presented to the highest standards throughout provides a "turnkey" ready to move in to, contemporary, stylish, light and airy spacious family accommodation enjoying the most fantastic views across the water and surrounding coastline.
Views from the property are simply described as stunning and protected. Regarded as amongst the finest in the village, these encompass the fishing boats and other moorings in the Percuil River, St Mawes outer harbour, Amsterdam and Carricknath points on the beautiful National Trust St Anthony Headland, St Anthony lighthouse, Falmouth Bay, beyond to the Lizard Peninsula and over 30 miles across the English Channel (on clearer days). The bay and harbour are a hive of marine activity most of the year with sailing races during the season, the highlight of which is Falmouth week each year in August.
As the property was built before most of the present village, the choicest sites were available. This most charming and spacious property is located in a particularly sheltered area, renowned for it own benign micro-climate. The open plan kitchen / dining / reception room is of particular note not only to its bespoke fitted kitchen but also the spacious living areas within this space coupled with a large bay window not only providing exceptional views but also flooding this area with ample natural light. The second reception room located on the opposite side of the cottage provides a more snug space with open fireplace together with yet another sizeable bay window providing a similar impressive outlook. Opposite the property is access to Tavern Beach and Olga Polizzi's exclusive Hotel Tresanton is no more than a hundred yards distant . The village centre and amenities are an almost level walk along the waterfront. St Mawes Castle and National Trust Coastal walks are on the doorstep.
This highly desirable property has been well loved by our clients for a number of years. Not only have they stylishly improved the property, they have obtained a lucrative income through holiday letting the property via the local holiday letting agent, "Portscatho Holidays", who have informed us that "the property lets extremely well". Suited towards the second or permanent home buyer, we feel this rare opportunity will not be available on the open market for long, due to it's desirable location and it's realistic guide price. Viewing is highly recommended, but please bear in mind it is holiday let, where viewings can only be conducted on changeover days or in weeks when it is not booked for holiday letting purposes.
