Property Description

Key features


Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Polvarth Point’s southerly outlook sweeps from east to west encompassing stunning and beautiful views. These include the Percuil River and Place Manor, with its commanding house on the foreshore, Amsterdam Point, and onto St Mawes harbour, St Mawes village, across Falmouth Bay to Helford and beyond, and both St Mawes and Pendennis Castles. The lovely part-wooded St Anthony Headland across the river is mainly National Trust owned. We understand the waterfront properties in front have covenants restricting their ridge / roof heights, therefore, the views from this most appealing property should be there in perpetuity.

The St Mawes Sailing Club Quay, with tender access to moorings, is only 200 yards up river, while 200 yards in the other direction, a virtually level walk leads to Summers Beach and to the wide range of central village amenities a little further on. A variety of marine activity is permanently on view, including sailing boats and yachts of many types, with frequent races during the season. The sight of visiting cruise liners, ‘J’ class yachts and Tall Ships in Falmouth Bay are never forgotten.

Polvarth Point, over the years, has been significantly improved and re-modelled. This light and spacious marine property has a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and was likely to have been originally built in the 1930’s. According to the local network, the property housed American officers in the second world war prior to the D-Day landings where a number of vessels were secretly moored up the Fal River at Turnaware. The rustic stone pillars that support the verandah to the west and south elevations were reportedly brought over from the local battlement site by St Anthony Lighthouse.

The period charm extends internally particularly with the wall panelling. More modern features include the ‘lookout’ balcony to the first floor suite, offering the ultimate panoramic views, wood fitted breakfast kitchen with worktops installed by ‘Out of Wood’ in Truro, a spacious open-plan L-shaped living and dining room, with featured bay window with seating to admire the spectacular vista, similar to two other bay windows to two of the bedroom suites.

This versatile property will appeal to the family or retiring buyer, of various age groups, either as a permanent or second home. Occupying mature, good-size half-acre surrounding gardens, potential exists to extend, subject to any necessary planning.

An early viewing is unhesitatingly recommended.

The accommodation comprises: Ground Floor – 19’1 x 15’ Reception Hall • 22’ x 23’6 (max) L-shaped Lounge / Dining Room • Sun Room • Breakfast Kitchen • Utility • Bath / Cloakroom • Bedroom 3 with En Suite Wet Room • Master Bedroom Suite with Jack & Jill Bathroom and Dressing Room / Bedroom 4. First Floor – Bedroom 2 En Suite with ‘Lookout’ Balcony.
Outside – Two connecting Garages • Driveway with Parking • Verandah • Summerhouse • Attractive mature surrounding Gardens.

Location – St Mawes
St Mawes is located at the tip of the Roseland Peninsula, an area of outstanding natural beauty, with much National Trust property nearby. It provides a good range of small shops, banks and restaurants/hotels as well as a passenger ferry service to Falmouth. The St Mawes area is renowned for its extremely mild climate and amongst sailing enthusiasts for the excellent waters of the Percuil River, Carrick Roads (Fal estuary) and Falmouth Bay. 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. The Cathedral City of Truro is 10 miles away (via King Harry car ferry) and Falmouth is 15 miles. Both of these are major centres providing a wide selection of shopping, commercial and schooling facilities. London (Gatwick) is about 70 minutes by air from Newquay, by rail about 4.5 hours from Truro or about 4 hours from St Austell.
