September Cottage is tucked just off the waterfront amongst some of the most historic period houses in the village. Stone fronted, the modest exterior belies the exceptional interior renovations that have been undertaken by the present owner, creating a superb warm, inviting and elegant home. From the first impressions of period windows with wrought iron plant holders, slate steps, wrought iron doggie gate, and past the part double glazed stable door, the quality and detail grabs your attention before even stepping inside. Finishing touches include bespoke premium shutters from Shuttercraft, freestanding Contura wood burning stove, under floor heating and inset spotlights, wood framed double glazed windows and doors at the rear of the property. Possibly the most beautiful feature, and certainly unique, is a specially commissioned stained glass window of St Anthony's lighthouse, fitted to the side of the bay window in the master bedroom.

Pull down attic stairs lead to the mezzanine, currently fitted with two single beds, skylight window and door to further loft access. The stunning master bedroom, with en suite shower room, has a small extension with the bay window overlooking the garden and features the stained glass window to the side capturing the light, double glazed window with shutters and door leading to a small wood framed balcony. Light and airy, another feature of this room is the tall canopied ceiling and flue from the wood burner running from floor to ceiling. A contemporary family bathroom, with high ceiling and velux window, completes the first floor.

Outside At the rear of the cottage is an enclosed walled garden built into the rock face. Extremely private and capturing the afternoon sun, the terraced garden is on two levels and mainly laid to gravel, with slates steps and some flowing shrubs, with fencing to one side. Incredibly private, at the rear of the garden is a timber framed summer house. Currently used as a home office, the summer house is double glazed with light and power supplied, fitted shutters, shelving to two sides with low cupboards under.

St Mawes 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 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.

Services The following services are available: Mains electric, metered mains water, mains drainage and telephone line is connected.
