RECENTLY FEATURED ON CHANNEL 4'S PROPERTY SHOW 'COAST VS COUNTRY'; Bransby Lodge offers versatile five bedroom accommodation on three floors that maximises the superb light, village and harbour views, gardens and privacy. Extensively updated in recent years, features include a living room with bi-fold doors to the garden, open plan kitchen dining room opening to the conservatory and balcony, and contemporary bathrooms.

Upper Castle Road remains one of the most desirable locations in the year round sailing resort of St Mawes, and overlooks the village and harbour, described by the Guardian as 'a bastion of British beach chic'. An active community, the village boasts family friendly beaches, elegant boutique hotels, sailing club, restaurants, galleries and shops and also meets day to day needs with banks, school and surgery.

The Property 
0' x 0' (0m x 0m)
For many years, Bransby Lodge was divided into a four bedroom family home with a two bedroom self contained apartment on the lower ground floor. In recent years, to accommodate the growing generations of family, the property was converted to provide one large five/six bedroom property over three floors. If desired, the ground floor could once again be used as a self contained separate two bedroom apartment with lovely open plan living room, kitchen, bathroom and study area. The ground floor and first floor would then provide four bedroom living accommodation with open plan kitchen and living room, conservatory, balcony, family bathroom and two en suite shower rooms. With so much flexibility, the property also lends itself to a B & B, holiday rental (with an assessed potential of up to £42,000 per year) or to those with a home business.
