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.
