Gentry House in St Ives
This is a beautiful property steeped in history and one of the only remaining residential properties in the heart of Fore Street, a stones throw from the beaches, harbour front and the famous cobbled Digey.
As you step off the hustle and bustle of Fore Street, there is a large stone walled sitting room with wood floor and a fire place with electric flame fire. There are luxury leather sofas and 42" tv with I-pod dock and surround sound speakers. This adjoins a large cottage kitchen with incredible views overlooking the harbour and beach. A rustic family size pine table with hand painted chairs, chandelier lighting and original fireplace all add to the charm and comfort of this gorgeous kitchen. Fitted to the highest standards the kitchen includes dishwasher, washer/dryer, large oven, Smeg fridge, tv, integrated microwave, surround sound speakers and every thing you could wish for to make your stay as comfortable and easy as you would hope for. A stunning kitchen with cream units, wooden worktops, stripped wood floor, hand painted tiles and blue walls all framing the superb sea view.
This huge, airy and light property has stripped wood flooring throughout and is flooded with natural light and character... a rarity and a luxury for these old Cornish properties. The wide open staircase leads up past an enormous window with more fabulous harbour views onto a spacious landing which then leads into a beautiful large double bedroom with original features. You are spoiled with yet more views from the gorgeous vintage style bed.
There is a further very spacious double room at the front of the property looking out over Fore Street. This room is wonderfully decorated and has its own hand basin.
There is a large double shower and sink/toilet on this floor and next to that is the main bathroom, a traditional exquisite room with a roll top bath and additional shower with a toilet and sink.
The real gem is the upstairs attic bedroom, which boasts truly stunning views and 3 single beds nestled in the eves with open beams and a sky light window.
All bedrooms are decorated in wonderful warm colours with Laura Ashley wall paper, original features, unique shabby chic furniture, chandalier lights, hand basins, dimmable lights, i-pod docking bases/chargers and tv/dvds.
In short, a truly gorgeous and sought after property.
