This individual detached residence has, in recent years, undergone complete restoration and extension to quality standards for our clients who live in the property permanently and who used local tradesmen and companies.

A specifically designed oak staircase leads to a ‘Lookout’ first floor sitting room which has a large 15’8 x 14’3 balcony. This room is galleried over the kitchen and has mesmerising 270° degree triple aspect river, countryside, village, harbour and bay views.

All the windows and the bi-fold doors were installed by a local company who sourced the double glazed units from Sweden. The stylish bathroom, shower rooms and utility room are fitted with Fired Earth tiles and the contemporary kitchen is fitted by Out of Wood and features a 7’ central island, Corian worktops and electric Aga cooker.

Particularly from the ‘Lookout’ room, the views from various vantage points around the property and gardens include the Percuil River to the east, beautiful countryside on St Anthony National Trust Headland, Place Manor, St Mawes Harbour and village, extending out onto Falmouth Bay, Pendennis and St Mawes Castles with The Lizard Peninsula beyond.
The views are ever changing and are a hive of water activity throughout the year.
