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. 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. 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. 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. 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.
Cornwall has been enjoying a renaissance, especially post COVID-19 lockdown. The county recently leapfrogged London to be recently crowned by rightmove as the top area in the UK for the most online property searches over the last year. 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). Both Falmouth University and Cornwall Airport at Newquay are rapidly expanding. Fine dining Michelin star and celebrity chef restaurants are in abundance, including Rick Stein (Padstow), Nathan Outlaw (Port Isaac), Paul Ainsworth (Padstow and Rock). Rising stars on The Roseland are Olly Pierrepont at the Driftwood, Rosevine and Dorian Janmaat at the Idle Rocks, St Mawes.
This exceptionally appealing property, ready for immediate occupation, is built by a reputable and local building company who are acknowledged for their build quality and attention to detail. The property is aesthetically pleasing from external appearances from the contrasting use of local stone and white rendered walls. Cornerways internal design is also of architectural merit. It maximises the stunning views, with well-positioned featured windows and folding doors, as well as offering a combination of formal and informal living spaces that blend the outside within via the clever configuration of external entertainment areas.
Mere photography alone does not do justice to the panoramic grandstand views. These encompass the fishing boats and other moorings in St Mawes Harbour, Amsterdam and Carricknath Points on the beautiful National Trust owned St Anthony Headland, St Mawes and Pendennis Castles, Falmouth Bay, beyond to the Manacles and miles across the English Channel on clearer days. The bay and harbour are a hive of marine activity most of the year with sailing races during the season.
This rare opportunity will suit the retiring and family buyer, either as a permanent home or holiday residence. With no onward chain and vacant possession upon completion, viewing internally is strongly advised to fully appreciate.
Upon entering the reception hall, initial impressions will delight from the light and airiness created by a high vaulted ceiling, via the galleried glass panelled and timber stairs, where a modern contemporary chandelier hangs from the ceiling as a focal point. You will be fooled by the oak effect flooring (which flows through the hallways and bath/shower rooms into the utility, kitchen and dining areas) which is in fact ceramic tiles to provide superior thermal qualities for cheaper running costs of the zoned underfloor heating system.
Kitchen and Dining Room
The bespoke contemporary kitchen has a range of units in an L-shape over the expanse of two walls with a large central island which also acts as a breakfast bar. Quartzite worktops and splashbacks add durability and complete the stylish look. Appliances include butler sink with mono block tap, microwave combined oven and grill, fridge and separate freezer, induction hob with extractor over, dishwasher and wine cooler. A plant room and utility are located to one side. The utility comprises plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and has matching units to the kitchen. Open plan is a featured dining room with dual aspect bi-fold doors which open on to a sun terrace for alfresco entertainment whilst capturing the beautiful views.
Three double bedrooms are found off the inner hallway. The guest bedroom two has a pocket sliding door to a stylish en-suite shower room. The third bedroom has a large window to take advantage of the views and the fourth bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and an en-suite door to a ‘Jack and Jill’ shower room, with a further door into the hall to serve the fourth bedroom.
Living Room and Large Balcony
On the first floor, the initial impressions upon entering from the galleried staircase into the living room is a sea of glass to the southern corner of the room which captures the panoramic water views. Tri-fold doors enter out onto a large balcony which is bordered by glass balustrades to admire the views whilst relaxing. When the sun goes down, a focal point is the contemporary wood burner on a slate hearth.
Principal Bedroom Suite
The principal first floor bedroom suite comprises a large bay window, to admire the splendid views, a dressing room, and a luxury en-suite bathroom with separate shower area.
The gardens surround the property and have been landscaped for ease of maintenance, enjoyment and relaxation. Particular features include a sun terrace (located off the dining room), fenced and walled borders for privacy, a pillared entrance, with a sliding gate, to a parking and turning area, and a Car Port to one corner.
