Elegant Georgian 4 bedroom house with panoramic sea and harbour views set in the heart of St Mawes with spacious accommodation, private garden and parking.
The property has recently been extended and renovated to an exceptional standard throughout, located in an enviable elevated position, opposite the pretty St Mawes church. The house offers stunning panoramic views across the water to the National Trust owned St Anthony Head and Falmouth Bay.
The setting is just perfect, 50 metres from the waterfront and 200 metres from Tavern beach, and ideally situated between the village harbour and Hotel Tresanton, yet benefiting from the tranquility of its elevated position. Gibraltar House is a perfect home from which to enjoy coastal activities on and off the water.
The property offers exceptional stylish accommodation throughout and has wonderful views with most rooms enjoying a view to the water. The high-ceilinged entrance hallway sets the scene with a lovely wrap-around staircase set to the rear. The light-filled kitchen and dining room are open plan with beautiful views across the bay and provide an excellent space for entertaining.
Across the hallway are two lovely bedrooms, a wet room and utility room and door out to the west facing sun terrace with sea views. The staircase leads to a half landing with a luxurious recently fitted bathroom. Upstairs the reception room spans the width of the house and the view is mesmerising. This fabulous room features a broad bay window and two large sash windows providing the most amazing uninterrupted 180 degree view from Summers Beach to the Lizard. The room is very generous (31’x 10’ 10”), excellent for socialising and has a lovely wood burner for the cooler evenings. There are two further bedrooms, one en suite and the other with views to St Anthony Head and the Lizard.
The sun terrace is a lovely place to relax with a cool drink and enjoy the views and, with easy access to the kitchen, a great place to entertain. A lovely secluded garden with mature planting and views to the water and headland beyond lies in front of the property and is an oasis in which to unwind. To the rear the property benefits from a private parking area, so important in St Mawes, with beautiful sea views and landscaped steps down to the sun terrace.
