It provides a good range of small shops, banks and restaurants / hotels as well as a passenger ferry service to Falmouth.

In a wider context, Cornwall is enjoying a renaissance and offers a range of accessible attractions, including the Eden Project, the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Tate Gallery in St Ives and Stein's Seafood restaurant in Padstow and takeaway in Falmouth. The Cathedral City of Truro is 10 miles away (via King Harry car ferry) and Falmouth is 15 miles.

The 'first' Merry Mead was built in the early 1960's by the Le-Good family who bought the building plot off the Haven Estate. The Le-Good's lived in the property for the remainder of their days. H Tiddy handled the sale of the property on behalf of the beneficiaries, which was in need of renovation, in 2007. Best and final offers were invited, our current clients being the successful bidders amongst very strong competition. The original Merry Mead was knocked down and our clients have taken over 12 months to project-manage the build to their exacting standards of quality and attention to detail. They moved into the property only a few months ago. They had every intention to remain in their ' dream' home for many years to come, as the Le-Goods did before them.

This stunning and sophisticated detached family house of approximately 4,382 sq ft has had no expense spared and simply oozes luxury. Carefully planned with the view as the initial feature, this lavishly appointed house combines state-of-the-art technology with traditional and classical characteristics. The accommodation flows superbly offering a combination of formal and informal living space. This prestigious and elegant home faces a few degrees off due south and has been built to architect designed specifications to maximise and emphasise the spectacular views. This sublime house is just 75 yards away from St Mawes Castle and the coastal footpath. Merry Mead is sensational. It is within 200m of the Hotel Tresanton and Tavern Beach. Slightly further on is the central village area with banks, shops, quay, harbour, restaurants and passenger ferries. The sailing club slipway is further on providing access to the sheltered moorings of the Percuil River.

Merry Mead exhibits high levels of craftsmanship and has a remarkable array of specifications. Stunning! Viewing internally will not disappoint!

The property and grounds have awesome views among the finest in St Mawes. These encompass the fishing boat and other moorings in the Percuil River, St Mawes outer harbour, Amsterdam and Carricknath Points on the beautiful National Trust part-wooded St Anthony Headland, St Anthony lighthouse, Falmouth Bay, beyond to the Lizard Peninsula and a very pleasant aspect over the village and towards Summers Beach. On clearer days, it is possible to see over 20 miles across the English Channel. The bay and harbour are a hive of marine activity most of the year, with sailing races during the season, culminating in Falmouth week each year in August.
