Cornwall Living 2017

Contemporary living in St. Ives

On the Tate Gallery side of St Ives,  just 450 yards from the heart of town, harbour and galleries is this carefully renovated, Victorian terraced house. Inside, the beautifully white interior and simple, contemporary furnishings and original artwork reflect the unique local light and the artistic influences of the town.

With steps up to a tiny agapanthus-filled front garden and, to the rear, steps to a small terrace garden with table and chairs,  sea glimpses of Godrevy lighthouse, this house, which sleeps 6, and can be booked through Helpful Holidays, offers the perfect getaway.

Inside, open-plan living with a woodburner, leads upstairs to two bedrooms on the first floor (a double to the front and a smaller double at the rear) and a family bathroom , while steep, narrow stairs lead to the attic twin bedroom with beds tucked under the eaves, Velux windows and sidelong views to sea.

This is a wonderful getaway house for those wanting a polished place to stay with beaches, shops, restaurants and galleries within a 5 minute walk of the ever-popular St. Ives.
