A beautiful period residence with stunning views and spacious accommodation complete with gardens and parking.
The picturesque south facing harbour village of St. Mawes on the eastern side of the Fal Estuary has long been one of Cornwall's most desirable and exclusive destinations. Far enough away from the main communications and larger towns to have retained its charm, it also has a good road in and out across the beautiful unspoilt countryside of the Roseland Peninsula. St. Mawes is linked to the port of Falmouth and the cathedral city of Truro via the King Harry Ferry on the River Fal.
The village is centred around its small stone harbour and has its own beaches, sailing club, castle and a handful of good pubs and restaurants, including of course, Olga Polizzi's Hotel Tresanton.
There is a regular passenger ferry from the harbour to the town of Falmouth across the estuary, and also in the summer to the picture-postcard Place House across the Percuil River. For those wanting to get away from the humdrum of city life and escape with family to the water for the weekend, but still have access to fine dining, then St. Mawes is quite understandably the first choice for many.
Gibraltar House has it all; centrally placed in the popular village of St Mawes with an elevated position maximising its outstanding views, complete with the added benefit of a garden and parking.
The main entrance provides a great first impression with outstanding views to be enjoyed from the doorstep while overlooking the garden opposite; perfect for summer parties and entertaining. The hall leads into the dining room, complete with a window seat to sit and soak up the vistas. The room flows into the kitchen to the rear, creating a very social area with a large skylight keeping the sun flooding in throughout the area. Opposite is a lovely bedroom facing across the water towards Summers Beach. The twin room to the rear has a lovely view out to the sea. To the rear is a useful utility area with access to the side terrace and into the well equipped shower room perfect after a day on the water.
Stairs sweep up to a magnificent reception room with the most outstanding panoramic views. A centrally positioned bay window adds to the enjoyment with a lovely window seat. The view extends from the Percuil River to Summers Beach, over to the village and out into Falmouth Bay. The view is intoxicating and the perfect place to let hours slip by.
To the rear there are two good bedrooms, one with en suite facilities and a super bathroom set on the half landing.
Square Footage: 1,590 sq ft
As you enter St. Mawes, turn right just after the water tower (signposted St. Mawes Castle). Drive down Upper Castle Road, bearing sharp left at the castle with the water on your right. Continue past the Tresanton Hotel for a few hundred yards. Church Hill will be found on the left hand side, proceed up the narrow lane and the property will be found on the right opposite the church. There is a car park next to St. Mawes Castle, and another down in the village.
