To the rear of this is a utility room and cloakroom. On the ground floor of the original cottage is a spacious formal sitting room benefiting from an open beamed ceiling, slate floor with underfloor heating and a large granite fireplace inset with a woodburning stove. The room enjoys views to either side together with a door opening to the garden.
Rising to the first floor there are four bedrooms, together with a well-appointed family bathroom featuring a double-ended Jacuzzi style bath, twin his and hers washbasins, bidet, low flush WC and walk-in shower cubicle.
The Mount is situated within a wider Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in a beautiful waterside position at the head of Carne Creek, overlooking the picturesque tidal waters and the wooded banks beyond.

With a passenger ferry to the Helford Passage and the excellent Helford River sailing club, the area offers good facilities for sailing enthusiasts with a plethora of opportunities to explore the beautiful wooded creeks including Frenchmans Creek.
Moorings and laying up facilities are available on application in both Gillan Creek (at St. Anthony) and on the Helford River. The River Fal and Falmouth Bay are also within easy reach providing some of the finest day sailing waters in the country.

The cathedral city of Truro is approximately 22 miles distant. Within 3 miles is the large village of St. Keverne boasting two further inns, shop, butchers and a highly regarded restaurant.
The Mount stands amidst mature natural gardens of approximately 1/2 an acre. Offering considerable scope for additional landscaping, the property is set in a natural bowl with high ground rising to the rear.
