The property

Scillonia is a Grade II listed, Georgian townhouse in the heart of Penzance, where the luxury of Kensington comes to Cornwall. Welcome to a peaceful oasis, near amenities and a beach, with lovely sea glimpses to Mount’s Bay and magical St. Michael’s Mount.

With a wonderful private front garden, and enclosed courtyard at the back, extensive accommodations and a games room, Scillonia is a special place for a Cornish getaway.

Park up to the roadside and enter the enclosed front garden, with steps leading up to this elegant, period home.

Indoors you’ll be met by a stylish, open-plan formal dining and living room, with two open fireplaces; across the hallway is the library, where you can curl up with a great book.

Continue to the open-plan living space with a conservatory where the sun pours in, kitchen and social area to cook and enjoy meals together.

Spend evenings under the stars, with a rear courtyard made for alfresco dining, or gather around the formal dining table, retreating to the plush sitting area to relax in front of an open fire.

Enjoy games night on the lower-ground-floor or put on the large-screen TV in the cinema room, with a snack room next door for popcorn and a fridge for refreshments. Four beautifully appointed bedrooms await up the dramatic period staircase, including three super-king-size rooms, and a versatile twin/king with zip/link beds, all serviced by a sleek bathroom, an indulgent shower room, and a handy cloakroom/utility.

Once you’re ready to explore, walk into Penzance, the most westerly town in Cornwall, home to the iconic St Michael’s Mount and a range of independent shops and art galleries on Chapel Street. Whether you’re looking to explore the beauty of the Cornish coastline or taste the local cuisine, the area has something to offer for all.

Head north to discover St Ives, the quintessential Cornish town, teeming with art galleries, book shops, and a stunning harbour, the Tate St Ives, Subtropical Gardens, the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, and amazing beaches. Continue to Hayle, where you can enjoy three miles of golden sands and family-friendly beaches.

After a day of exploring, return to Scillonia and enjoy the tranquil setting and a glass of wine: this is luxury Cornish coastal living.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £480.

About the location


St Ives 8 miles. Helicopter to Isles of Scilly - 30 minutes

Penzance hosts Golowan, the Midsummer Carnival, and The Literary Festival. There are also The Exchange, Newlyn and Penlee Art Galleries. One of Cornwall’s most popular holiday areas is the spectacular sweep of Mount’s Bay, from the cliffside fishing village of Mousehole through Penzance and around to beautiful Marazion, the coastline hides a wealth of sandy beaches, rocky coves as well as winding village streets and other places to visit and explore. Connected by a causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s stunningly beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens. Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up. Penzance with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must as it is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Isles of Scilly as well as being the harbour. The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops towards Land’s End. On the way, stop off for a coffee and a rest at beautiful Lamorna Cove, explore the open air Minack Theatre and marvel at the cliffs as you approach Gwennap Head. A stunning walk for those seeking solitude, exercise and some of the UK’s best coastal scenery. Penzance is the perfect holiday base. Ideally placed for exploring this land of Celtic myth and legend and with enough to do and see in the immediate area to keep all the family occupied.
