About this property

  • This is a rare opportunity to purchase this freehold parcel of almost 18 acres in a quite stunning cliff top location. The land comprises field enclosures running down through coastal gorse land to the coastline itself where it is crossed by the South West Coastal path. It enjoys spectacular sea, coastal and rural views. There is a good sized Dutch barn in the south western corner of the southernmost field. There is also a small shed and the remnants of a large stone outbuilding. The land is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with stunning views across St Ives Bay close to the popular seaside town of St Ives.

    The land is approached via a narrow country lane (please see directional note before trying to drive to the land) about 1/2 a mile from the main road leading into St Ives and is situated just over a mile from the town centre. Alternatively, access can be gained from the South West Coastal path; a delightful 15-20-minute walk from Porthmeor beach with spectacular views.


    No mains services are connected although there is a natural spring on the land

    Rights of Way – The South West Coast path crosses the north eastern boundary by the coastline. We are advised that there are no other rights of way.

  • St Ives
  • 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.
