Timeless splendour

We discover Trenarren House, a landmark new south-facing development of luxury apartments enjoying panoramic sea views.


Situated along Sea Road in Carlyon Bay, one of Cornwall’s most highly regarded addresses, this new development of six luxury apartments, over three floors, is expected to be completed by September 2022. With uninterrupted south sea views from Gribbin Head around to Black Head, this prestigious and high-quality new development enjoys a location that is hugely convenient for the nearby golf course, Carlyon Bay Hotel, coast path, beach and the nearby town of St Austell, that also benefits from a direct rail link to London Paddington.

The historic and picturesque harbourside village of Charlestown (a regular location for BBC’s Poldark and the film The Eagle has Landed), is just over a mile away and the beaches of Duporth, Porthpean and Pentewan are all within a very short drive. The world-class and award-winning attraction, Eden Project, is located to the north of St Austell with The Lost Gardens of Heligan being found to the west of the town. 

Just six miles or so along the coast is the beautifully timeless and historic waterside town of Fowey, with its wonderful atmosphere, popular sailing and watersports, all complemented by an eclectic array of boutiques and restaurants.     

Configured on three storeys, this beautiful building offers a residence of timeless splendour. Two apartments on each floor each boast an open-plan living area with a separate utility room and wet room; three double bedrooms (one en-suite) and a kitchen replete with quartz tops and high-end appliances. The whole complex has then been wrapped within landscaped gardens, including a communal sitting out area, pond and lawn.

With holiday letting, short-term letting and full-time occupancy permitted, coupled with underfloor heating and a 10-year building warranty everything has been thoroughly considered.

Although the development won’t be available for habitation until early autumn, the apartments have proved such a pull that every one has been sold in advance, leading to the conclusion that the strength of the coastal Cornish market combined with a legacy design has set a new standard in apartment architectural style.
