The property

Situated in the holiday hot-spot of St Ives, The Beach Hut is less than a five minute stroll down hill to Porthmeor Beach, famous for its surfing and the Tate Gallery. This modern duplex apartment with private parking space is tucked away from the main thorough fare yet boasts captivating views from the open-plan living room over the rooftops and St Ives iconic coastline towards Godrevy Lighthouse and as far as St Agnes and Newquay on a clear day.

St Ives offers something for everyone, wandering along the ancient cobbled street you will find numerous shops, art galleries and award winning restaurants. The tiny harbour beach is dotted with places to sit and enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine whilst watching the colorful boats bobbing in the quay. There are four white sandy beaches within walking distance including the world-class, award winning beaches at Porthminster and Porthmeor.

Taking a trip on one of the pleasure boats from the harbour is a great way of exploring the amazing coastline. Alternatively, driving west on the coast road, voted Britain's most scenic stretch of coastline, will transport you to surfy Sennen, legendary Lands End and The incredible Minack Theatre with its dramatic backdrop of sea and sky - just magical. Be sure to book ahead as it is very popular!

Behind an unassuming exterior, is a modern interior that is abundantly proportioned for two. The ground level entrance, which is not shared with the adjoining apartment, leads to a hall with ample storage for surf boards. A double bedroom, equipped with a king size bed and bathroom are also located on the ground floor along with a spiral staircase connecting to the first floor open-plan living room. The large bay window with coastal views is the focal point of the living room and after dark, couples can cosy-up on the plump sofa next to the contemporary wall-mounted electric fire. Whilst the off-road parking space is a godsend for self-drive guests, the car is not essential with St Ives train station (connecting to main line) nearby.
