This stunning and stylishly appointed detached residence exhibits high levels of craftsmanship and has a remarkable array of specifications. The property was built in 2011 and occupies a sensational coastal location. Combining the classically traditional with modern luxury, the circa 4382 square feet of family sized accommodation flows superbly offering a clever balance of formal and informal living spaces.
This prestigious and elegant home faces a few degrees off due south and was designed by Ross Edwards of award-winning CAD architects with an emphasis on maximising the exceptional views. St Mawes Castle, built in 1542 by King Henry VIII, and the South West coastal footpath, are just 100 metres away. Equally, Merry Mead is within 200 metres of Tavern Beach and Hotel Tresanton. Slightly further on along the St Mawes’ waterfront is the central village area with its fine range of shops, art galleries, charming quay and harbour, cafés, pubs, restaurants and passenger ferries. The St Mawes Sailing Club slipway provides access to sheltered moorings in the Percuil River.
Mere photography does not do justice to the views which need to be experienced first-hand to be fully appreciated. All the principal rooms and bedrooms in the property as well as the grounds have grandstand panoramic views amongst the finest in the South West of England. These widespread views span and encompass the boat moorings in the Percuil River and St Mawes harbour, the beautiful National Trust owned St Anthony Headland, St Anthony Lighthouse, Falmouth Harbour and Trefusis Point, Falmouth Bay, beyond to the Lizard Peninsula, miles of open sea, and a very pleasant aspect over the village and towards Summers Beach. The bay and harbour are a hive of marine activity most of the year, with captivating sailing races during the season.
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. The village is centred round its quaint harbour, its own beaches and Castle. There is an all-year-round pedestrian ferry service to and from Falmouth and a seasonal ferry runs to Place, providing access to the scenic walks on the National Trust owned St Anthony Headland.
St Mawes has a wide range of amenities, which are open all year, including butchers, two bakers, convenience store, post office/newsagent, doctors, hairdressers, dentist, pharmacy, village hall, social club, churches, 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. Olga Polizzi's Hotel Tresanton and the chic Idle Rocks Hotel both lure the rich and famous. The village has superbly varied and accessible sailing waters and an active sailing club with a full programme to cater for all ages.
