In the owner's words
"For us, it’s all about the mesmerising bay and sea views… we love the light, airy space in the apartment where the large balcony window frames the captivating views of Porthminster Beach, St Ives Bay and beyond up the North Cornish coastline. The combination of this characterful and historic building and the contemporary interior of the apartment feels really unique. Having a private allocated parking space is so useful here. The convenient location means you can walk down to the beach in minutes, dine in style at the Porthminster Café, or enjoy a choice of walks radiating out to Clodgey Point via the Island and Porthmeor, and up to Knills Monument and Tregenna."


This stunning penthouse is located in a very attractive character building on The Terrace in St. Ives. One of the first buildings that you come to as you enter the town making it very easy to access.

A private parking space at the front of the building is an enormous benefit in a town where parking is at a premium. Steps lead up from the parking area to a shared inner hall. A contemporary interior has been created within the character walls of the building. Stairs lead up to the private entrance to the Penthouse (there is no lift, keeping the service charges reasonable).

Entering the apartment, the entrance hall leads to two double bedrooms, the main bathroom and storage cupboard with plumbing for washing machine and telecomm connections. Both bedrooms feature built in wardrobes as well as Velux windows, with the master bedroom having an ensuite shower room. The main living area is to the front of the apartment to make the most of the panoramic views, which fill the room. A large open plan living space provides plenty of room to relax and admire the views of St. Ives Bay, Godrevy Lighthouse and beach as well as Porthminster beach which is immediately opposite the apartment. A well equipped kitchen has a good range of white, high gloss, handleless cabinetry with built in Neff appliances including a double oven, microwave, dishwasher, under counter fridge and freezer and wine cabinet under granite worktops. The living area features a contemporary Italian shelving and media unit by Iroka. The balcony is irresistible, with large sliding doors opening to a seating area with a tempered glass balustrade allowing for uninterrupted views along the coast.

The building also offers a communal storage area and separate bin store for the flat owners.

This is a property which would make a stunning holiday home and would no doubt offer a fantastic income. A viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this penthouse.
