About this property

  • The property is a part of an iconic Victorian Terrace overlooking Porthminster Beach with stunning uninterrupted views across St Ives Bay to Godrevy Lighthouse. The Harbour, shops, restaurants, galleries and Tate St Ives are only a short walk away.

    The property has been converted into two, two bedroom apartments, Am Meer & Trehayes Haven which are both currently marketed successfully by St Ives Holidays. Both properties share similar décor and are very comfortable but could perhaps benefit from a little updating.

    Am Meer
    Located on the ground floor, Am Meer has two entrances, either though a side door into a lobby with the kitchen to the left or through the conservatory.

    The Conservatory is glazed on three sides, with tiled flooring and has doorways leading both into the sitting room & the dining room.

    The sitting room has a box bay with views out across Porthminster Beach, St Ives Harbour & Bay with a further door leading into the inner hallway off which is a cloakroom, the two bedrooms, bathroom & dining room.

    The principal bedroom is to the front with the same views as the sitting room whilst the second bedroom is to the rear and the bathroom has separate bath & shower.

    The dining room has doorways to both the conservatory and kitchen which has wooden wall and base units, plumbing for both a washing machine and dishwasher and under counter fridge and freezer, built in electric oven and hob.

    From the rear porch there is access to the rear courtyard which as three storage units along with an outside lavatory.

    Trehayes Haven.
    The entrance to Trehayes Haven is off Trelyon Avenue, through granite gateposts up a short path to the front door which leads into a hallway off which on the right is the kitchen which has wooden wall and base units, plumbing for both a washing machine and dishwasher and large Fridge/Freezer, built in electric oven and hob and the double aspect dining room.

    Doors lead from the dining room into the sitting room with a large window with views out across Porthminster Beach and into an inner hallway off which are both bedrooms and bathroom. The principal bedroom is to the front with the same views as the sitting room and also benefits from an en suite shower room whilst the second bedroom is to the rear and the bathroom has bath with an overhead shower.

    Gardens & The Exterior
    The property extends to nearly about one acre slopes down to a post & rail fence with trees marking the boundary. At the top of the garden there is a levelled terrace with space for table & chairs.

    The two modern garages with electrically operated doors are equipped with power and water and there are two fuel stores, a garden store and external WC in the small courtyard behind Am Meer. The driveway also serves the remaining cottages for which there are designated parking spaces beside the garaging (for No's 2&3 only)

    The property has development potential for an exciting extension or a separate dwelling with similar fantastic uninterrupted sea and coastal views should a suitable planning application be sought.
