This enchanting south facing harbour village is found on the eastern side of the Fal Estuary, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with much of its surroundings owned by the National Trust. The village is centred round its quaint harbour, its own beaches and Castle. It has a good wide range of amenities, which are open all year, including butchers, bakers, convenience store, post office / newsagent, doctors, hairdressers, dentist, pharmacy, village hall, church, delicatessen and clothing shops including Fat Face. 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 recently re-modelled Idle Rocks Hotel both luring the rich and famous. The village has superbly varied and accessible sailing waters and an active sailing club with a full programme of village regattas.
In a wider context, Cornwall has been enjoying a renaissance offering a range of accessible attractions such as the Eden Project, the National Maritime Museum, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Tate Gallery and Truro Cathedral. Fine dining Michelin star and celebrity chef restaurants are in abundance, including Rick Stein (Falmouth and Padstow), Jamie Oliver (Fifteen), Nathan Outlaw (Port Isaac), and Paul Ainsworth (Padstow and Rock).
Trewarren: A Brief History
The property was newly built in the early 1990's by a local reputable builder for local hoteliers as their main St Mawes residence. Our clients are the third loving owners who purchased the property in its original form in 2004. They have meticulously improved the property over the last 15 years, the main upgrades being the bespoke kitchen and luxury bathrooms as well as major landscaping of the gardens including the purchase of the additional 'Secret Garden'.
Trewarren faces a few degrees off due south. The panoramic views from the property and its gardens are magnificent. They encompass the fishing and yacht moorings in the Percuil River and St Mawes Harbour, the village including the church spire, Tavern Beach, Amsterdam and Carricknath Points, the beautiful National Trust owned St Anthony Headland, st Mawes Castle, Falmouth Bay and beyond to the Lizard Peninsula (the UK's most southerly point) and out to miles of open sea.
On clearer days it is possible to see over 20 miles across the sea to watch passing shipping traffic. The bay and harbour are a hive of marine activity all year round. The views are forever changing from sailing races, wishing cruise liners and super yachts to seals, basking sharks and dolphins.
Trewarren is aptly named 'homestead of the warren' in Cornish. Its location appeals to a wide sector of the market, either as a second or permanent home and its exclusive yet private and convenient position in the village is second to none. This most attractive property has vehicular access to ample parking and garage facilities but is located within a 50 yard walk down the warren to Tavern Beach with a pleasant, relatively level 300 yard stroll along the waterfront to the local shops, restaurant and amenities. Of particular note is the 'secret garden' which offers peace and tranquillity. Also, subject to any necessary consents, this area has the potential to build a one or two bedroom annexe as ancillary accommodation to the main house. By way of a visual aide, we have on file plans and architects drawings which have not been submitted to the planning authority.
Trewarren is a hidden gem! It's unassuming approach vanishes upon entry through the automatic gates into beautiful mature and private surrounding gardens which have been landscaped for maximum enjoyment of the Cornish sunshine and absorb the splendid views. The gardens are private and have been designed with ease of maintenance in mind too. Mere photography does not do justice to the quality and design of this stunning house where only by viewing internally can one fully capture the distinctive comforts and perfect surroundings this fine home provides.
Portrayed upon entering the impressive reception hall, with its Italian marble floor and galleried staircase, initial impressions exhibit Trewarren's exceptional and tasteful specifications. This unique property has an aura of character and maturity that does not deptic its age of around 25 years or so. The comfortable and flowing family sized accommodation is also perfectly manageable for the couple. Architect designed to take maximum advantage of the amazing views, the bespoke kitchen flows open plan into the reception rooms, and the luxury bath and shower rooms compliment the good sized light and airy bedrooms.
Capturing the Outside to Within
The impressive lounge connects to the property's principal sun terrace whilst its attractive open fireplace adds to the ambience particularly on winter evenings. The media room has the versatility as a 5th bedroom and houses the equipment for the property's Bose surround sound system. Juliet balconies are discovered in the lounge, dining room and master bedroom, which not only offer the stunning vista but also bring the sounds of the coast within. French doors are located in the kitchen, media room, inner hall and bedrooms which provide access to the beautiful gardens.
Approaching around one third of an acre, the surrounding gardens are dispersed with areas of lawn and mature shrubs and flora, inter-linked by pathways to the sun terraces and decked areas.
The principal sun terrace measures 20' x 20' and is elevated on top of the garage and connects to the main lounge. The views from the terrace are magnificent. To the rear, a courtyard leads into the inner hall whilst steps rise up to the kitchen.
Connecting the steps of the Huers Hut is a further raised decked terrace measuring approximately 20' x 12' which has a featured Rotating Pod, ideally positioned to capture the all day sun as well as admire the wonderful vista whilst relaxing.
On the eastern side, entered by a gate in an attractive wall is the secret garden. A raised decked terrace offers grandstand water views over Falmouth Bay and the harbour. The terrace connects to access steps to the 'Huers Hut' or lookout which has a south facing window to not only spot wildlife but the comings and goings of marine craft in and out of the bay.
