An individual, tastefully presented, light and airy, split-level residence, enjoying delightful village, sea, river and countryside views.

Located within yards from a footpath onto National Trust countryside which leads onto captivating coastal walks, this comfortable, easy to run house will appeal to the second home or permanent lifestyle change buyer. The landscaped gardens offer surprising privacy and seclusion that remains virtually undisturbed, even during the height of the holiday season. Equally, the shops, harbour, restaurants and central village amenities are only half a mile walk away, accessed by a footpath at the bottom of the road on to Newton Road.


The property was extensively re-modelled and refurbished around 8 or 9 years ago to exacting standards. The main works carried out included drainage and water pipes, electrics, oil fired central heating system, kitchen, bath and shower rooms, lighting and flat roofing in certain areas. Therefore, one can simply move the furniture in and put the kettle on!

The views from the principal rooms are delightful. These encompass the village and surrounding countryside, along the St Mawes harbour with its boat moorings, to the Percuil River and onto the National Trust St Anthony headland with the English Channel beyond.

Suited towards the family or retiring buyer, the property has potential to increase the accommodation into the connecting garage. In fact under planning reference number C1/PA31/0051/09/R permission (which has now lapsed) was approved to convert the garage to a guest bedroom and erect a new garage off the driveway.

The Accommodation Comprises:

Ground Floor: Entrance Porch; Lower Hall; Utility Room;
First Floor: Upper Hall; Lounge; Kitchen / Breakfast room; 3 Bedrooms; Bathroom; Shower Room.
Outside: Garage; Boiler / Garden Store; Gardens.

St Mawes

This enchanting south facing harbour village is found on the eastern side of the Fal Estuary, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with much of its surroundings owned by the National Trust.

The village also has two public houses, and an excellent range of cafes, restaurants, art galleries, gift and ice cream shops.
