    About this property

    • Situated in a conservation area between Porthminster Beach and St Ives Harbour, The Warren is a quaint, meandering street home to an abundance of charming cottages and town houses of differing shapes and sizes. No.5 Titcomb House is one of the oldest being a Grade ll listed cottage originally built in 1763. The house is significantly larger than it looks from The Warren and retains many original features. From an historical interest point of view the basement was originally a Pilchard factory, at the time linked to No.3. The original cobbled flooring is still visible in part and if further excavated could look stunning.

      The property has been owned by the same family for many many years and has been modernised and kept in keeping with its Grade ll status more recently used as a successful holiday cottage marketed originally by Lanhams/ St Ives Holidays but now by Travel Chapter.

      The front door opens in to a central hallway off which all the rooms lead. Immediately on the left is the family bathroom followed by the staircase to the first floor, ahead the entrance to the living dining room and to the right the kitchen. The walls are the original wooden panels and the ceilings throughout the ground floor are beamed.

      The Bathroom has a clawfoot freestanding bath and a newly fitted quadrant shower. The kitchen is U shaped, has tiled flooring and is open to the dining area. There are cream wall and base Shaker style units, an original ceramic Belfast sink, a built in double oven and hob, slimline dishwasher, washing machine/dryer and fridge/freezer. The living/dining room has oak flooring a large window with window seat which looks directly out over the harbour and bay. Seals are often to be seen swimming in the sea below the window.

      There is a cupboard off the hallway which houses the trap door and wooden steps that lead down to the basement. This is kept locked whilst the property is rented.
