The exclusive Cornish coastal village of St Mawes was voted in 2020 by a Which? Customer Survey as the “Top Seaside Town in the UK”. This enchanting south facing harbour village, named “Britain’s St Tropez” by the Daily Mail, is found on the eastern side of the Fal Estuary, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Much of its surroundings are owned by the National Trust. It is centred round its quaint harbour, its own beaches and castle. The village has superbly varied and accessible sailing waters and an active sailing club with a full programme of village regattas, club races and various national championships to cater for all ages.
St Mawes has a good wide range of amenities, which are open all year, including butcher, baker, convenience store, post office and newsagent, doctors, hairdresser, dentist, pharmacy, village hall, church, delicatessen and clothing shops. The village also has two public houses, and an excellent range of cafes, restaurants, art galleries, gift and ice cream shops. St Mawes has long been one of the West Country's more desirable and exclusive destinations, with Olga Polizzi's Hotel Tresanton and the chic Idle Rocks Hotel both luring the rich and famous.
Cornwall has been enjoying a renaissance, especially post COVID-19 lockdown. The Duchy offers a range of accessible attractions such as the Eden Project, the National Maritime Museum, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, and the Tate Gallery. The Cathedral City of Truro is the main financial and commercial centre of Cornwall. It has a fine range of stores, private schools, college and the main hospital in the county (RCH Treliske).

Bass House has magnificent and panoramic views of Summers Beach, the Harbour, Percuil river, Falmouth Bay and out to sea. This chic and spacious family sized home is a 300-yard walk to the delightful St Mawes waterfront where shops, beaches, cafes, pubs, restaurants, coastal walks and water sport facilities are all on the doorstep.
The inspiring and captivating views from Bass House offer a hive of marine activity all year round. The beautiful and panoramic vista encompasses St Mawes harbour, with its yacht and fishing boat moorings, Summers Beach, across the water towards Place Manor and the lovely part wooded National Trust St Anthony headland, as well as spanning over the village and harbour towards Falmouth Bay and the Lizard Peninsula with miles of open sea beyond. Mere photography does not do the views justice and must been seen first-hand to fully appreciate.
This exceptional and bespoke newly built residence is deceptively spacious from initial outside appearances. It cleverly maintains the aura and appeal of the Victorian era yet combines a precise balance of bedroom and reception spaces which effortlessly flow over three storeys. Bass House is a thoughtfully designed energy efficient home which maximises the beautiful vista as well as bringing the outside within from the beautifully landscaped rear gardens.
On the First Floor
The whole of the first floor flows the full depth of the building open plan where neatly positioned windows and roof lights provide an airy feel. A bespoke hand-built kitchen by Brookman’s of Smallbone is fully equipped with Miele and Liebherr appliances and is zoned by a large island sweeping to a dining area which in return leads into a spacious living room incorporating a wood-burner plus a balcony, which maximizes the enjoyment of the stunning views. A crittall-style door leads to a spacious Media Room or Snug to offer an independent space. This room also has a vaulted ceiling and rear door with a bridge and steps to allow easy access in to the gardens for alfresco dining and barbeques.
On the Top Floor
On the top floor is a principal bedroom suite comprising a landing (with a door to close at the bottom of the stairs for privacy), a well-proportioned bedroom area with outstanding grandstand water and countryside views, built in wardrobes, a separate storage room and a tasteful and an en-suite shower room.
On the Ground Floor
On the Ground Floor, off the Hall is a Guest Bedroom Suite, (which could easily be chosen as the principal bedroom), comprising a stylish en-suite shower room, built in wardrobes plus a large bay window capturing the splendid views. The ground floor also has a boot room and utility room with sink and space for 2 appliances and an exceptional family sized bathroom serving two further good-sized double bedrooms.
The rear garden is a real sun trap and is landscaped by independent terraces of differing designs including shrubs, paving and decking to cater for the enjoyment of all age groups. The terraces flow upwards to culminate at a top decked sun terrace where the Pavilion is located. The gardens are designed for ease of maintenance and a haven for relaxing. The gardens capture the all day and evening sun, perfect for alfresco dining.
The front has a resin bound gravel driveway to cater for off-road parking, a luxury that does not exist with the majority of properties located on the waterfront.
Located at the top of the rear gardens, The Pavilion comprises a room with double glazed French style doors and an en-suite Shower Room with W/C. This area is ideal as an Ancillary Bedroom or enjoyment space such as a Hobbies, Games Room or a perfect ‘work from home’ Office.
