A beautiful and interesting house designed as a holiday home, light, airy, spacious and comfortable and only a few yards away from the sea with uninterrupted views of Mounts Bay and Mousehole Island. Bring your binoculars and watch the constant procession of fishing boats and yachts passing by yards from your front window.
The house is situated on the edge of this charming south facing village, but within 150 yards of its picturesque harbour, with shops, good restaurants and pubs all within walking distance. It is built into the side of a hill and is on three levels with a pretty rockery garden sloping up to the entrance. The top floor of this detached house has a high open beamed ceiling and is completely open plan, incorporating a well equipped kitchen with plenty of tiled worktops dividing it from the spacious lounge and dining area. Straight up through the centre is the unusual feature of a square granite fireplace and chimney. Two sets of double sliding doors
open onto the wooden balcony, all of which face directly out to sea.
Throughout this delightful house there is plenty of wood in evidence, including all floors, which are broken up here and there
by pretty scatter rugs. It is therefore requested strongly that NO high heeled shoes be worn in the house. Only 50 yards away there are steps down to the sea and rocks where there is bathing and a built in 'natural' pool for children's use at low tide.

About the location
Penzance 4 miles; St Ives 12 miles.
A delightful fishing village nestled on a hillside and spilling down to the shore. The picturesque harbour, surrounded by its maze of winding narrow streets, draws visitors from miles around, while in the distance St Michael's Mount stands proudly in the centre of Mounts Bay. A fabulous coastline and miles of spectacular walking characterise the area, with seabirds, seals and wild headlands leading just around the corner to Land's End. The Minack cliff-top theatre is a few miles along the coast, while reminders of the region's ancient past in the form of Dolmens and standing stones appear everywhere. St Ives, with its stunning beaches, beautiful harbour and narrow winding streets is just 12 miles away.
Note: Due to wooden flooring, no high heels to be worn. There are several steps to the entrance
