St Ives townhouse with incredible sea views is on the market for £950,000

Always wanted to see the sea from your bedroom?

A four-storey property in St Ives, with panoramic coastal views, has come on the market for £950,000.

The pretty townhouse boasts a 180-degree outlook across the sea and along the north Cornish coast.

With 1,700 sq ft spread over two floors, the house is Grade II listed and features a sitting room and dining room on the ground floor – with steps descending to a kitchen and utility room.

On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom, as well as a door to a sea view roof terrace, while the top floor is home to another bedroom and en-suite bathroom with a sea-facing balcony.

There’s also plenty of space outside, with a paved garden at the front and a sheltered courtyard garden at the rear, as well as a garage and parking space – which is incredibly sought-after in the area.

Mark Bracey, from estate agent Lillicrap Chilcott, said: ‘It has something that an awful lot of houses in St Ives don’t have.

‘People pay £70-90,000 for a parking space but this property has a garage and parking space.’

It’s in an ideal location, too, close to the hustle and bustle of the town centre but set back enough for it to be peaceful.

The house has been owned by the current vendors for the past 16 years – but they are now, reluctantly, selling it in order to move to a property with less storeys.

Mark adds: ‘The view is absolutely stunning. It’s mainly enjoyed from the top two of the four floors.

‘The main bedroom has a full width balcony and the view takes in everything from St Ives Island, the harbour, the pier, across the bay to Godrevy and along the coastline to Godrevy lighthouse.

‘It’s absolutely mesmerising, a full panorama. The pictures don’t do it justice.

‘All the way through the summer, from May to September, St Ives is a frenetic place but this property is in a very lovely quiet oasis.’

Of course, there’s always the option to buy and rent it out to holidaymakers – considering how popular the area is.

Mark said: ‘Some of the sums being paid for holiday lets are eye-watering, particularly in peak weeks so an opportunity as rare as this will attract a mix of interest from holiday home and main home owners because of what it offers.’
