Gentry House in St Ives

General Information

This stunning Grade II listed property in one of the most sought after locations in St Ives. Dating back to the 18th Century this 3-bedroomed house comfortably sleeps up to 7 people (plus additional sofa bed for 2) and comes with a private parking space a short stroll away. It boasts fine sea views as its nestled perfectly between the harbour and the centre of town. It also offers Wi-Fi and is easily accessible by car for dropping luggage.

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 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 shower and sink/toilet on this floor and next to that is the main bathroom, a traditional room with a roll top bath and additional shower with a toilet and sink.
The real gem is the upstairs attic bedroom, which boasts fabulous
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.
