Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Imposing detached residence with artists studio and sea views

Attention all budding artists! Need a property which has its own studio? Originally owned by the artist Lionel Birch and more recently the renowed sculptor Denis Mitchell this unique property is in need of some updating but offers family size accommodation. A REAL MUST SEE - NO CHAIN.


. Forever associated with the St Ives period of the 1950's and early 1960's, Denis moved over to Newlyn in the late 1960's to La Pietra to find more space, a garden he developed to share the Trewarveneth studio with his great friend and contemporary, John Wells. Whilst most of his sculptural work was created down the hill, he used the studio at La Pietra for sketching and painting, appreciating its light and inspirational views. The lawned garden to the front features a granite bench and table that Denis built and offers a high degree of privacy, whilst to the rear of the house is a terraced garden, sadly overgrown at present, which could be opened up again. All the rooms are good sized with a large attic, accessed via a staircase, which could be converted to provide additional bedrooms and bathroom. Whilst it must be appreciated that the house requires re-modernisation it has the potential to become a magnificent family home with many original features. SOLD WITH NO FORWARD CHAIN.
