About this property

  • The proposed house is overlooking St Ives bay and the seven miles of golden sand which stretches from Hayle to Gwithian, Virginia Woolfs lighthouse is visible towards the horizon. The stylish, contemporary, open plan house is designed by an award-winning London architect. The “green” roof and proposed sophisticated landscaping around the house allows the building to be sensitively integrated into the hillside.

    The entrance will be from street level into an entry pavilion with crescent stairs following the fall of the land to the living, dining and kitchen area on level one with doors leading out on to the large terrace. The four bedrooms are down a further stair to level two all of which have views out across the bay.
