The exclusive Cornish coastal village of St Mawes was voted in 2020 by a Which? Customer Survey as the “Top Seaside Town in the UK”. This enchanting south facing harbour village, named “Britain’s St Tropez” by the Daily Mail, is found on the eastern side of the Fal Estuary, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is centred round its quaint harbour, its own beaches and castle. St Mawes has long been one of the West Country's more desirable and exclusive destinations, with Olga Polizzi's Hotel Tresanton and the chic Idle Rocks Hotel both luring the rich and famous. The village has superbly varied and accessible sailing waters and an active sailing club with a full programme of village regattas, club races and various national championships to cater for all ages. There is an all-year-round pedestrian ferry service to and from Falmouth and a seasonal ferry runs to Place, providing access to the scenic walks on the National Trust owned St Anthony Headland.
The village has a good wide range of amenities, which are open all year, including butcher, baker, convenience store, post office and newsagent, doctors, hairdresser, dentist, pharmacy, village hall, church, delicatessen and clothing shops. The village also has two public houses, a social club and an excellent range of cafes, restaurants, art galleries, gift and ice cream shops.
Cornwall has been enjoying a renaissance, especially post covid-19 lockdown. The Duchy offers a range of accessible attractions such as the Eden Project, the National Maritime Museum, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, and the Tate Gallery. The Cathedral City of Truro is the main financial and commercial centre of Cornwall. It has a fine range of stores, private schools, college and the main hospital in the county (rch Treliske). Both Falmouth University and Cornwall Airport at Newquay are rapidly expanding. Fine dining Michelin star and celebrity chef restaurants are in abundance, including Rick Stein (Padstow), Nathan Outlaw (Port Isaac), Michael Caines (Maenporth and Porthleven), Paul Ainsworth (Padstow and Rock). Rising stars on The Roseland are Aaron McNamara at the Driftwood, Rosevine and Dorian Janmaat at the Idle Rocks, St Mawes.
This light and airy property is in ‘showroom’ condition being recently completely refurbished and modernised to quality specifications. Arguably located in the best position of the four properties in the courtyard, Pen an Garth, meaning “house in the corner” in Cornish, has surprisingly private gardens to the rear as well as the front, which also benefits from a pedestrian door for easy direct access to the adjoining garage.
Pen an Garth is located only 180 yards away from the quayside and central village area yet enjoys a quiet, tucked away setting offering privacy. With the rarity of a garage and off-road parking, an attribute many centrally located and waterfront properties do not have, this well designed home has its living accommodation on the first floor to make the most of the beautiful water views.
Central village located, beautiful water views, gardens, parking, garage and superbly presented and ready to move into: This stunning property ticks all the boxes!
The captivating views encompass St Mawes harbour, with its yacht and fishing boat moorings, across the water towards Place Manor and the lovely part wooded National Trust St Anthony headland, as well as spanning over the village towards Falmouth Bay and the Lizard Peninsula offering a hive of marine activity all year round.
For many years The Brake Yard was an historic part of the St Mawes social and economic scene. At the turn of the century, the yard comprised stabling for six horses, a harness room and meeting place, plus a regular two-horse bus passenger service was run to Truro via the King Harry Ferry. In the early to mid 1990's, a locally known reputable builder and developer built four houses with garaging in the courtyard. Each property has reverse style living accommodation, purposely designed to take full advantage of the beautiful harbour and countryside views.
Pen an Garth has undergone two modernisation and refurbishment programmes, the first just after the current owners purchased in late 2007 and the second, 15 years later and only around 6 months ago. The most recent improvements to quality specifications included new ‘Evolution-Stormproof’ windows and matching front and rear doors, upgrades to the bathroom, new floor coverings throughout, the addition of a contemporary fireplace and attractive shelving and cupboards to one wall in the living room and a complete upgrade of the electric heating system, which can be controlled remotely.
Approached from the courtyard through the private front garden to a delightful veranda, on ground level walk-in you will find an entrance, a seating area, under-stairs storage and a rear hallway with coat hooks, a main bedroom with a luxury en-suite shower room and two sets of French doors out to the rear garden, a fantastic spot to enjoy the evening sun. There is a tasteful family bathroom in immaculate order. The guest double bedroom enjoys a southerly aspect and has two sets of French doors to the verandah overlooking the sun trapped and private front gardens.
Upstairs in the open plan living area you will see a beautiful and spacious room with three double glazed casement style windows spanning the southerly facing aspect to maximise the light and airy feel as well as maximise the tranquil views over St Mawes Harbour, Falmouth Bay and St Anthony National Trust Headland. To one wall is an attractive and featured newly installed ‘hole in the wall’ fireplace, situated centrally amongst stylish built in neutrally painted shelves and cabinets. The contemporary luxury modern fitted kitchen to the rear is also immaculate having ample ‘shaker style’ cupboards, granite work tops and a range of integrated appliances including oven, hob, fridge, separate freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher and wine cooler/ drinks fridge. The inner lobby has an airing cupboard with a pressurized hot water cylinder and a cloakroom wc with a window which enjoys wonderful views over the village to Falmouth Bay and the Manacles. Furthermore, there is the third bedroom which could be utilised as a dining room but could also suit as a study.
This desirable property has been successfully holiday let for many years, providing the owners with a lucrative income whilst also being able to enjoy it themselves via owner booking. Therefore, Pen an Garth is the perfect holiday home with easy to maintain gardens and easy upkeep of the home. Equally, due to its location, gardens, views and parking facilities, this rare opportunity would work brilliantly for those looking to move to the exclusive Cornish coastal village of St Mawes permanently.
