This property is located just off The Wharf in the heart of St Ives, only metres from the beach, with far reaching views over the harbour and across St Ives Bay.Location
Cornwall’s unique character comes from its historic landscape and some 400 miles of spectacular coastline. This unique property occupies a magnificent setting on the harbour side with direct access to the beach
Home to the landmark Tate St Ives Gallery (built in 1993) and the famous Barbara Hepworth Museum, St Ives is bordered by three beautiful sandy beaches which are repeatedly voted among the best in the British Isles, one particularly for surfing. Set against the colourful backdrop
of the working fishing harbour, the turquoise waters of St. Ives have attracted artists since the 19th century due to its renowned clarity of light. The town, with winding cobbled streets, is also a ‘foodie’ destination packed with numerous restaurants, pubs and cafes all offering excellent fare including the award-winning Porthminster Beach Café.
At nearby Lelant, overlooking the Hayle Estuary there is a spectacular links golf course with views stretching up towards Godrevy Lighthouse. A scenic branch railway line links Carbis Bay and St. Ives with the main London-Penzance line at nearby St. Erth.Description
