The property is a short walk from both the Tresanton Hotel and Idle Rocks Hotel.

The breakfast room / dining room enjoys a lovely view out to the water, has a window seat below the sash window. This dining room opens directly into the kitchen behind which has a large central island, Above the rear half of the kitchen is a large skylight bringing plenty of natural light in. The front bedroom on the ground floor has wonderful views of the water from two aspects and the bedroom behind also has views of the water.
A wooden staircase leads up to the half landing off which is a family bathroom with a bath. Stairs lead on up to the landing, sitting room and two further double bedrooms. The sitting room is really fabulous with panoramic views of the bay and very special bay window in the centre and two other sash windows either side. The room extends to the entire width of the house.
One of the two bedrooms has an en-suite shower room (but no views of the water) whilst the other double bedroom has lovely views out across the estuary
Off the utility room, a door that leads out to a private side terrace perfect for outside entertaining and al fresco dining. Garden steps lead up through the rear garden to the parking area behind.
The picturesque harbour side village of St Mawes is on the eastern side of the Fal Estuary and at the southern end of the unspoilt countryside of the Roseland Peninsula. It is nevertheless readily accessible to the port of Falmouth and the Cathedral city of Truro. It has long been one of Cornwall’s most desirable and exclusive destinations. The privacy, peace and tranquillity of its surroundings combined with its amazing coastal location makes it the perfect setting for this superb waterfront home.
St Mawes has its own beaches with Tavern beach next to the house and the larger Summers beach being a family favourite a few minutes’ walk beyond the harbour, the water here is unusually calm and clear, making it perfect for swimming and water sports. From the harbour there are regular passenger ferry crossings to and from Falmouth. There is a vibrant sailing club with excellent facilities. It also has an excellent choice of restaurants, pubs and bars to cater for all tastes and budgets. With the renowned Tresanton Hotel next door and the equally excellent harbour front Idle Rocks Hotel recently having gone through a vast program of improvements, under its new ownership.
