    About this property

    • Cold Harbour Cottage is a four-bedroom character cottage dating from the early 19th century located in an area of outstanding natural beauty with four stables and 15 acres of land yet only 3 miles from the centre of St Ives. There are great views from the property with the 13th century Towednack Parish Church is clearly visible with Trendrine Hill behind.

      The house has been a much loved family home in the same ownership for over 35 years, but could now benefit from a little cosmetic updating.

      Ground Floor-

      A pathway through the garden leads to the front entrance porch from which the front door opens directly in to the living room. It has a beamed ceiling, windows either side of the front door overlooking the garden, a large granite inglenook with inset wood burning stove and the stairs ascending to the first floor. A door opens in to the dining room which in turn flows in to the kitchen. The kitchen has quarry tiled flooring, pine wall and base cupboards along with open shelving and wooden plate rack, an electric Aga, space for both a dishwasher and fridge/freezer. From the kitchen is a door leading to the rear lobby and utility room and an open archway in to the conservatory. The conservatory is very much part of the house in that it has both a radiator and underfloor electric heating along with insulating blinds. Double doors open out on to the paved entertaining area in the back garden. The rear lobby has a door leading out to the rear garden and also contains the central heating boiler, has space for a tumble drier and secondary freezer. The utility is off the lobby and has a sink, plumbing for a washing machine and a shower cubicle.

      First Floor-

      At the top of the stairs there are four bedrooms all with partially vaulted ceilings. Two of the bedrooms are singles and both have original cast iron fireplaces and the other two good sized doubles. One has a built in wardrobe and exposed granite on the chimney breast and the other, the Principal bedroom, is dual aspect with stunning views out across open fields to the Towednack 13th century Church and Trendrine Hill beyond and has an en suite shower room with quadrant shower. The family bathroom has a white suite with a bath with hand held shower.

      The Gardens, Garage & Stables & the Land

      The Gardens-

      The property is bordered on both sides by a Cornish hedge with agricultural fields to one side and the lane the other. The front garden has a slab pathway to the front porch, is laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs to the borders. The rear garden has a south facing entertaining terrace, is laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs to the borders and at the far end of the garden a triangular wooded copse.

      The Garage-

      To the front of the garage is a parking area for three or more cars and to the rear is a glass greenhouse. The garage has a single up and over door which opens in to a large space which has been split in to three areas. The front area is currently used as a work shop. Behind this an insulated office and to the rear a further workshop area. To the side of the garage is a wood store however this was formerly used as a Tack Room.

      The Stables-

      The four spacious stables are connected to the garage, are block built with concrete flooring. To the front of the stables is a yard. To note both power and water are available.

      The Land-

      There is around 16 acres in total. There is a mix of grazing and moorland, a large pond and a “wilding” area. The owners used to have horses, however, have not used the land for grazing for over 10 years as such a little work will be required to bring it back. Much of the land is overgrown as such it would be a great project to bring back in to use. The field next to the stables is now open and would require fencing to be installed if animals were to be introduced. Also in this field is a large sheltered and fenced vegetable plot with a couple of raised beds.

      Please note:- There is water supply to the grazing fields.

    Local information

    • Cold Harbour Cottage in the hamlet of Cold Harbour is in the Parish of Towednack. Situated just three miles from the centre of St Ives Towednack is a largely agricultural parish in West Penwith, an area, most of which, is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
    • The unique landscape is a mix of lowland wetland, moorland, and agricultural land.

    • Cornwall's unique character comes from its historic landscape and some 400 miles of spectacular coastline. Home to the landmark Tate St Ives Gallery (built in 1993) and the famous Barbara Hepworth Museum, St Ives is bordered by three beautiful sandy beaches which are repeatedly voted among the best in the British Isles, one particularly for surfing. Set against the colourful backdrop of the working fishing harbour, the turquoise waters of St. Ives have attracted artists since the 19th century due to its renowned clarity of light. The town, with winding cobbled streets, is also a ‘foodie' destination packed with numerous restaurants, pubs and cafes all offering excellent fare including the award-winning Porthminster Beach Café.
    • At nearby Lelant, overlooking the Hayle Estuary there is a spectacular links golf course with views stretching up towards Godrevy Lighthouse. A scenic branch railway line links Carbis Bay and St. Ives with the main London-Penzance line at nearby St. Erth.
