The property

Sea Shimmer stands high above the fishing port of Newlyn commanding spectacular views overlooking the sea, Mount's Bay and St Michael's Mount.

Built in the early 1900's this majestic Victorian terrace property has been tastefully converted into a ground floor apartment. With impressive high ceilings and stripped parquet flooring this property encompasses the elegance of its original era whilst combining contemporary and on-trend serene decor. Beautifully furnished and in keeping with its character, the generously sized lounge/diner encourages lazy breakfasts looking out over the impressive views of the Bay, a perfect spot to watch the ever changing seascape. Or spend a winters retreat cosied up by the fire. An antique bed and furniture add romance to the attractive bedroom and the luxury fitted kitchen is a gourmet's delight. A Smeg six ringed gas range with twin electric oven and retro style American fridge gives this kitchen a real 'wow' factor. An attractive courtyard at the rear of the property offers a sheltered sunspot to enjoy a cream tea or two. Access to the property requires some reversing uphill and the parking in front of the property is suitable for medium size vehicles only. However, there is usually parking on the hill for large vehicles.

The colourful village of Newlyn has many traditional inns, galleries and shops. Rise early and you can visit the bustling fish market or if you prefer sample the local produce in the restaurants, Mackeral Sky seafood bar being just one and has great reviews. Visit the Penzance is within very easy reach, steeped in history and culture with plenty of entertainment opportunities and attractions. Within 10 minutes drive is Marazion with its long sandy beach, water sports and good-food pubs. The fortress on St Michael's Mount stands provocatively on a rocky isle and is well worth the causeway walk, tide permitting. Just a half hours drive away, St Ives is sublime with its picture postcard appeal. The fishing village of Mousehole with its ancient stone walled harbour holds a timeless quality with quirky craft shops, traditional inns and eateries.

About the location

NEWLYN

Penzance 1 mile.

Nestled next to Penzance, and although still a quaint village in its own right, Newlyn is actually the third largest fishing port in England, and an important Port of Refuge for all sea baring craft. It is unusual in that visitors can still watch the landing and auctioning of fish at the market, as many families have for centuries before. This Cornish village is clustered around the harbour, with its historic 800 year old quay (the Mayflower actually left for America from this quay, not Plymouth) curling around a few small boats on the western side. Famous for the Newlyn school of Art and Newlyn Copper, the Cornwall Coastal Path passes through the village, as does the level Mousehole to Marazion cycle path. An abundance of wildlife and flora can be enjoyed along both, with basking sharks, dolphins and grey seals often seen. The Cornish coast is renowned for surfing, and Penwith offers some splendid beaches on which to enjoy this sport as well as surf fishing for sea bass. Mounts Bay also offers a wealth of opportunity for watersports enthusiasts as well as giving visitors an opportunity to relax and unwind in beautiful surroundings.

Note: Parking suitable for medium size vehicle only with reversing uphil required for access.
