The accommodation, on the first and second floors of the cottage, combines the classic charm of a fisherman’s cottage, with exposed stone walls bringing a delightful sense of St Ives history, with the comfort of modern furnishings. The main living space on the first floor comprises an open kitchen, living and dining area. The bathroom, which is accessed from the landing, has a white suite, slate floor tiles and heated towel rail. The main bedroom is on the same level and clothes storage is provided by fitted cupboards and chest of drawers.
From the landing stairs lead to the second bedroom which is provided with full sized twin beds and fitted wardrobe. The room has views over rooftops to Godrevy Lighthouse to the front, and the Tate Gallery, Porthmeor and Clodgy Point to the rear. A desk is positioned at the front window, for writing that book, or sketching that work of art!
There is a small enclosed patio to the front.
The property is situated in a tucked away location in the heart of Downalong, (the old fisherman’s quarter), adjacent to the Island (with St Michael's Chapel and Coastguard Lookout perched on the top) between Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches and the harbor.
St Ives, renowned for its colony of artists, natural wildlife habitat, and its surf, is a beautiful town with golden sands and a clear sea. Situated on the north Cornish coast, its colorful cosmopolitan atmosphere, maze of cobbled streets and jumble of fisherman’s cottages blend with an eclectic selection of shops and galleries centered around the picturesque harbor. St Ives has been complemented in recent years by a range of good restaurants and cafes and this, coupled with its artistic attractions (Barbara Hepworth Gardens, Tate St Ives and numerous galleries and working studios) further enhances its unique atmosphere and year round appeal.
