A characterful waterside cottage set on Lower Castle Road, just moments from Tavern Beach and the centre of this iconic Roseland village.Location
The picturesque south facing harbour village of St. Mawes, on the eastern side of the Fal Estuary has long been one of Cornwall’s most desirable and exclusive destinations.
Far enough away from the main communications and larger towns to have retained its charm, it also has a good road network to the village, across the beautiful unspoilt countryside of the Roseland Peninsula and is also linked to the port of Falmouth and the cathedral city of Truro, via the King Harry Ferry on the River Fal.
St. Mawes is centred around its small stone harbour and has its own beaches, sailing club, castle, shops and a handful of good pubs and restaurants, including of course, Olga Polizzi’s Hotel Tresanton and The Idle Rocks.
There is a regular passenger ferry from the harbour to the town of Falmouth across the Carrick Roads, and from Easter to October to Trelissick and Truro and to St Anthony’s Head and the picture-postcard Place House across the Percuil River.
For those wanting to get away from the hum drum of city life and escape with family to the water for the weekend, but still have access to fine dining, then St. Mawes is quite understandably the first choice for many.Description
Set on Lower Castle Road, Pilchards is one of the villages most recognisable cottages, boasting pretty sash windows with painted shutters offering uninterrupted views across the water to St Anthony's Head.
The house has been extensively modernised by the present owners to create a characterful village home, perfectly suited to a lock-up and leave or holiday let. Whilst being Grade II Listed, the cottage enjoys a combination of original features with modern kitchen and bathroom facilities.
The ground floor comprises a reception hall with staircase rising to the first floor and doors opening to the sitting room, which has a stone fireplace and access to the utility room and ground floor shower room.
The kitchen has been fitted with wall and floor mounted, shaker style units, under wood worktops, and a selection of integral appliances. There are two spacious bedrooms on the first floor, the principal having an en suite shower room.
Outside, there is a patio and seating area in front of the cottage with space for a bench and planters. There is a passage at the side of the building which leads to a courtyard at the rear, over which the cottage has a right of access for maintenance and also to sit in, if required.
Square Footage: 1029 sq ftDirections
As you enter St. Mawes, turn right just after the water tower (signposted St. Mawes Castle). Drive down Upper Castle Road, bearing sharp left at the Castle with the water on your right, the property will be found on the left after about 400 yards, not long after passing the Hotel Tresanton. There is a car park next to the St. Mawes Castle, and another down in the village.
