A Brief History
Raysfield House originally dates back to the 1970's and was in the ownership of the same family for around 30 years prior to the property, which required modernisation, being purchased by the current owners through ourselves around 4 years ago. Raysfield House is our clients permanent home and was modernised and transformed to the quality and highly specified property as seen today.
Beautiful views are experienced at various vantage points around the property and encompass the Percuil River and part wooded countryside owned by the National Trust and towards the bay.
Under planning application number PA14 / 11314, which was granted in January 2015, the property was altered and reconfigured to provide adaptable and versatile family sized accommodation. One area of potential still exists to add a dormer window to the current eaves room to provide a 5th bedroom or study.
A Brief Internal Tour: Ground Floor
The impressive 14'4 x 12'10 reception hall has a sweeping staircase and oak doors leading to the formal lounge, kitchen/dining room, utility room and secondary sitting room / bedroom 4. A show piece room is the 21'10 x 14'5 kitchen / dining room which flows onto an 11'7 x 10'3 conservatory. The bespoke kitchen, interior designed and installed by Susie Hammond, flows over a travertine tile floor. The light and airy 20'3 x 15'7 formal lounge has a contemporary wood burner as a focal point. An informal rear entrance from a covered porch off the parking forecourt leads to a luxury fitted utility room with a wet / shower room off with Laufen fittings. To the western side of the ground floor is a 16'10 x 12'11 bedroom (which is currently used as a sitting room/study) with a quality Laufen fitted en suite bathroom off.
A Brief Internal Tour: First Floor
On the first floor is a galleried landing providing access to 3 bedrooms (one with en suite shower room) and a family bathroom with Villeroy and Bosch fittings. The 'eaves room' has potential to become a 5th bedroom / study.
The property is set in very pleasant and private surrounding mature gardens that are relatively level, a rarity in St Mawes! There is ample space for vehicles and boat storage with the property having a detached double garage and a further double garage that connects to the property via a covered porch. This has patio doors onto the garden and is currently used as a fitness / games room. There is also a gardener's loo and log store.
Warmed by an oil fired central heating system, this superbly presented and adaptable property would suit the retiring or family buyer either as a permanent or second home. A major bonus is its location with sailing facilities, lovely walks, beaches, shops and restaurants all being easily accessible.
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.
