A fantastic opportunity to acquire this elevated coastal home on a select and sought after address with breathtaking sea views out across St Ives Bay with parking and garaging.Location
Cornwall's unique character comes from its historic landscape and some 400 miles of spectacular coastline. This unique property occupies a magnificent setting, built on the hillside facing due East looking out over Carbis Bay and beyond. The South West Coast Path is accessed by footpath with St Ives centre being about a 15-minute walk and Carbis Bay beach circa 10 minutes.
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

Continue through Carbis Bay, cross over the Tesco mini roundabout and Wheal Margery is a very small lane just a few metres on the right after the roundabout. This turning is easy to miss and easier access is via Treloyhan Park Road which is the second turning on the right. Follow the road past the island of trees and as you reach the end bear left onto Wheal Margery, which is a gravel road. Nautique is the second property on the left after the lane bears round to the right.
