St Saviour's Lane is one of the most highly sought-after roads in picturesque Padstow, a desirable old-town area just yards from the hustle and bustle of this vibrant town with a marina and working harbour. This is a most elegant and utterly distinctive semi-detached residence, filled with charm and character, beautifully presented and maintained by the current vendor over the last 25 years. The established, professionally designed and landscaped garden has glorious, flexible entertaining and relaxing outdoor spaces. Situated in an elevated position in the heart of the conservation area and an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the property enjoys wonderful views over the gardens and rooftops of the old town extending out to the Camel Estuary and the countryside beyond. These views are particularly special from the first-floor balcony of the master-bedroom suite.

The main sitting area includes a contemporary wood-burning stove and large double-glazed sliding doors leading to the garden. Sliding mirrored doors lead into the second double-height reception room, with travertine tile flooring, which is flooded with natural light from six high-level Velux windows, large arched windows at either end of the room and a wall of folding glass-panels that issues directly onto the garden. A lower-ground floor utility room with fitted storage units leads to the cloakroom. The third bedroom, currently used as a studio/office, is accessed via an independent set of stairs and has a Juliette balcony with commanding views over the property's garden and surrounding gardens and old-town roof tops.
The main staircase gives access to the first-floor landing, leading to the two double bedrooms and family bathroom. The spacious and luxurious family bathroom includes under-floor heating, a Jacuzzi bath, separate shower and contemporary fittings and tiling. The second bedroom overlooks the front elevation with an original sash window and fitted storage. The master bedroom suite includes a walk-through dressing room with fitted wardrobes, a stunning vaulted ceiling with a-frame beams and sliding glass doors to the balcony with exceptional and far reaching views of the Camel Estuary and harbour.

It is a hidden oasis for relaxing with a variety of entertaining areas. The raised flowerbeds are planted with English country-garden flowers and specialist plants, shrubs and trees including Cornish Palms. The garden incorporates a lighting system for evening time, an automatic watering system and a sculptural water feature. At the bottom of the garden is a summerhouse and a greenhouse. Last but certainly not least, at the front of the property, is the rare, valuable and hugely advantageous driveway for parking and integral single garage with electric up and over door.
