St Mawes

The exclusive Cornish coastal village of St Mawes was voted in 2020 by a Which? Customer Survey as the “Top Seaside Town in the UK”. This enchanting south facing harbour village, named “Britain's St Tropez” by the Daily Mail, is found on the eastern side of the Fal Estuary, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Much of its surroundings are owned by the National Trust. The village is centred round its quaint harbour, its own beaches and castle. The village has superbly varied and accessible sailing waters and an active sailing club with a full programme of village regattas, club races and various national championships to cater for all ages. There is an all-year-round pedestrian ferry service to and from Falmouth and a seasonal ferry runs to Place, providing access to the scenic walks on the National Trust owned St Anthony Headland.

Local Amenities

St Mawes has long been one of the West Country's more desirable and exclusive destinations, with Olga Polizzi's Hotel Tresanton and the chic Idle Rocks Hotel both luring the rich and famous. It has a wide range of amenities, which are open all year, including butcher, baker, convenience store, post office and newsagent, doctors, hairdresser, dentist, pharmacy, village hall, church, delicatessen and clothing shops. The village also has two public houses, and an excellent range of cafes, restaurants, art galleries, gift and ice cream shops.


Cornwall has been enjoying a renaissance, especially post COVID-19 lockdown. The Duchy offers a range of accessible attractions such as the Eden Project, the National Maritime Museum, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, and the Tate Gallery. The Cathedral City of Truro is the main financial and commercial centre of Cornwall. It has a fine range of stores, private schools, college and the main hospital in the county (RCH Treliske). Both Falmouth University and Cornwall Airport at Newquay are rapidly expanding. Fine dining Michelin star and celebrity chef restaurants are in abundance, including Rick Stein (Padstow), Nathan Outlaw (Port Isaac), Paul Ainsworth (Padstow and Rock). Rising stars on The Roseland are Aaron McNamara at the Driftwood, Rosevine and Matt Haggarth at the Idle Rocks, St Mawes.


Located on one of St Mawes' most desirable roads, Curbar Cottage is accessed via a wide tarmacadam driveway, which offers ample parking for several vehicles, as well as housing a useful timber shed. Steps lead down to the front door, where there is a well-stocked flowerbed and sunny paved patio. A path offers pedestrian access around the house to the rear garden, as well as access to the side door into the kitchen.

A fully glazed front door opens into a generously sized hallway with doors leading off to the kitchen, living / dining room, cloakroom, bedrooms and bathroom. The 24' Living / Dining Room is generously sized and features an open grate fireplace in Cornish stone with wooden mantle and display alcove, as well as a large window looking out over the garden and sliding patio doors out to the outdoor decked terrace. The well-proportioned kitchen offers fully fitted wall and floor units, a ceramic sink, plumbing for a washing machine as well as a UPVC stable-style...

Proposed Accommodation

Planning permission has been sought and granted to alter the existing ground floor to create 3 double bedrooms, 2 with en-suite shower / bathrooms, a 4th bedroom / office, and a family bathroom along with a galleried staircase rising to the first floor. And then also to extend upwards, the height of the current roof, allowing the creation of a large open plan kitchen / diner / lounge with a frameless glazed balcony, mirroring the ground floor decked below, with stunning water and country views, looking out towards St Mawes harbour, Place Manor and Summers Beach, as well as a feature window to the stairwell.

The Gardens

To the front there is a paved sun patio ideal for catching the evening sunshine and also some colourful raised flower beds.

Leading from the Living / Dining Room is the generous terrace, finished with composite decking and a glass balustrade. Steps lead down to a sheltered, level area of garden, currently housing a hot tub. A further set of steps lead down to the lower level of garden, mainly laid to lawn with hedging to the borders creating a sense of complete privacy. A path offers pedestrian access from the driveway around the side of the house to the gardens, as well as to a pedestrian door at the rear of the garage.


Offering unrivalled potential, this spacious property is suited towards the discerning permanent or second home, family or retiring buyer, either as the comfortable and quality home as it is seen today or as a project to alter to create a larger 3 / 4 bedroom family sized home.
