    About this property

    • Ground Floor

      The front door opens in to a small porch which leads directly in to the large open plan living room which spans the entire width of the property. This is a bright and spacious room with a beamed ceiling, travertine flooring, five windows, all with window seats and plantation blinds overlooking the front courtyard and at each end of the room is a recessed woodburner with large granite surround and slate hearth. The travertine flooring continues through a wide archway in to the kitchen which in turn opens in to the conservatory. The kitchen has been very well designed and has bespoke hand painted wooden units and glass fronted cupboards along with a wall mounted plate rack. The work surfaces are marble, there is a Belfast sink and a “Two Drawer” integrated fridge and a Mercury range oven which has a five-ring gas hob. An archway opens in to the conservatory which in turn has door out in to the garden and entertaining area. On the right in the conservatory is space for a large Fridge/Freezer and cupboards with a marble work surface containing space for both a washing machine and a tumble drier. The conservatory is currently used as a dining area, however there is ample space for a dining area to be in the living room if preferred.

The Garden Room has a charming rustic feel with polished plank flooring, a rough cut wood ceiling, a raised wood burner on a slate hearth and the kitchenette having concrete surfaces, under counter fridge, two ring gas hob and a microwave.

    Local information

    • Trowan Vean is a approached via a private lane in the small rural hamlet of Trowan which is located on the fringes of St Ives enjoying far reaching views over open farmland towards the Atlantic Ocean. There are twelve properties in total to include family homes and holiday cottages. A footpath from the hamlet descends to the centre of St Ives and also links with the coastal path.
    • 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.
