An entrance porch leads to an inner hall with stairs leading upstairs, doors to two bedrooms and a ground floor shower room along with access to a large eat-in kitchen. There is currently a range of matching white cabinetry including under counter space for a washing machine and dishwasher. The kitchen area also includes a double range style oven and there is also room for a free standing fridge/freezer. From the kitchen, the adjoining breakfast room has additional cupboards and counter work surface space as well as room for a table and chairs and from here sliding patio doors open on to an attractive conservatory which overlooks the gardens. Accessed from the kitchen is a large sitting/dining room with an attractive wood burner set on a granite hearth. The garden can also be accessed via French doors from the ground floor reception room together with an additional door leading to the side of the property.

To the first floor there is a large family room with windows to both the front and rear of the house. From here, there are impressive countryside views to St. Anthony Head with glimpses of Percuil River and the sea. Either side of this room are two double bedrooms, both enjoying similar views, one of which has an en-suite shower-room. The family bathroom is located on this floor and an additional third single bedroom which also lends itself as an office.


The property is accessed via a five bar gate opening to a driveway with large parking area to the front of the house. Paths lead around both sides of the property to the side and rear gardens which are mostly laid to lawn and bordered by mature hedges, Cornish walls and trees.
The grounds are divided into roughly three sections, the first, a south facing lawn area around the house with a pond, and two further areas of wooded paddocks that gently slope away from the house to the eastern side. This area lends itself perfectly to growing flowers and vegetables with ample space for polytunnels, making the ideal space for a lovely kitchen garden.
To the side of the house there is a large detached garage, which in addition to the attached double garage offers space for a workshop or storage for boats, cars or other leisure equipment.


St Mawes has long been one of the West Country's more desirable and exclusive destinations, with Olga Polizzi's Hotel Tresanton and the Idle Rocks Hotel both luring the rich and famous.
The village offers a good range of local amenities within the charm, beauty and character of a traditional Cornish harbour with shops, hotels, pubs, a post office, church, pharmacy, doctors and dental surgery along with a village school.
Situated on the eastern banks of the renowned sailing waters of the Carrick Roads, this is very much a sea faring community, with boats and yachts continually setting anchor in the calm waters just beyond the main harbour. An active sailing club offers a full programme of village regattas, club races and various national championships to cater for all ages.
There is an excellent year-round ferry service to Falmouth, which is less than a mile away by boat. The village is located at the tip of the beautiful Roseland Peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty, which has many of the most pleasant south coast beaches along its shores with some of the most exclusive waterside villages within Cornwall such as Portloe, Portscatho and Portholland.
Approximately 5 miles away from the property is the King Harry Ferry which provides alternative vehicular access to Truro and Falmouth. Truro, being the administrative centre for Cornwall, has ample shopping and leisure facilities with many well regarded junior, senior and private schools.


Mains water, electricity and private drainage. Oil fired central heating.



The land associated with the property offers considerable scope for development over time and subject to gaining the necessary consents.
