Sea Shimmer, Newlyn
Sea Shimmer stands high above the fishing port of Newlyn commanding spectacular views overlooking 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 décor. 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. The colourful village of Newlyn has many traditional inns and shops. Rise early and you can visit the bustling fish market or if you prefer sample the local produce in the restaurants. 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 Michaels Mounts 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. 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.
Sleeps 2 Ground Floor: Kitchen. Shower Room. WC. Sitting room with 26" TV and living flame electric fire. Bedroom 1 Double. Other Amenities: Dishwasher. Bed linen, towels and Central heating included.
