The ancient market town of Penzance with its notable Georgian and Regency architecture is at the gateway to the Land's End Peninsula and is set in Mount's Bay, home to the spectacular St. Michael's Mount. Penzance has an attractive promenade on its sea front and provides a host of retail, leisure and commercial facilities along with a number of museums and galleries. The charming Chapel Street is a short walk away and home to some of Penzance's most historic buildings.

Communications to the far west of Cornwall have improved considerably recently with the new section of dual carriageway on the A30 at Bodmin along with regular flights to Newquay Airport from several major cities in the UK. Penzance is easily reached by rail, lying at the end of the mainline from London Paddington.

Set in a sheltered position, Penzance enjoys one of the most temperate climates in the British Isles. The mild weather conditions allow numerous sub-tropical plants and palm trees to thrive.

St.Mary's Place nestles into the north-east corner of Morrab Gardens which has a famous sub tropical garden where tree ferns, palm trees, banana plants and other exotic plants flourish around a historic bandstand. Within the gardens there is a private library with a large archive of local history.

The coastline in this part of Cornwall is nothing less than magnificent, and indeed the famous Minack Theatre is to be found a little further to the west, perched high above the granite cliffs with the western approaches as a backdrop. Indeed, dotted along the coastline westwards there are a number of wonderful beaches below the south west coastal footpath including Sennen Cove about 8 miles away, now renowned for its surfing break. The popular resort of St. Ives, home to the Tate St. Ives and Barbara Hepworth museum, is about 8 miles away on the north coast. There also is a regular helicopter service and passenger ferry from Penzance to the Isles of Scilly.


3 St Marys Place is a delightful Grade II Listed property with huge charm and character. Granite steps lead to a broad entrance hallway with a beautiful staircase leading to the accommodation on the floors above. The layout is very open with the sitting room divided by an archway through to the kitchen dining area. On the 1st floor is a fabulous room ideal as a drawing room with twin windows enjoying lovely views to the sea and a marble fireplace set to one side.

The bedrooms are set out on a series of floors with the loft bedroom having the most far reaching views. The lower ground floor is currently configured as an apartment and has separate access via the courtyard to the rear, but can easily be utilised as part of the house.

The three properties that make up St Marys Place all share a gravelled area to the front and beyond there is a charming garden laid to lawn making an ideal space for entertaining.
