Your heart will beat a little faster when you walk into this uber-hip luxury penthouse apartment with its staggering views over St Ives, the ultimate destination by the sea.
Step out of the elevator and into your light and airy luxury apartment with its hardwood floors and super-sleek interior. The apartment is chock full of state of the art mod cons including swish heating and ventilation, multi-room audio and intelligent mood lighting. Slide back the glass doors and marvel at the stunning view from your balcony overlooking Porthminster Beach. Later on sink into the over-sized squishy sofa to soak up the view or just relax in front of the SMART TV with a glass of fizz.
Whip up a storm in the bespoke kitchen by Cornish designer and maker Rozen, this black walnut kitchen with cool stainless steel and Silstone quartz worktops is completed with high-end Miele appliances including a two zone wine cooler, oven and warming drawer, microwave, fridge, freezer, induction hob and dishwasher. A washing machine/drier is tucked away in a cupboard in the hallway. On starry nights, enjoy a post-dinner tipple on the balcony and listen to the sea lapping on the beach below.
You will be spoilt for choice between the sumptuous main bathroom with Villeroy and Boch bath and separate shower with natural stone and subtle lighting or the amazing en-suite with huge walk-in shower designed to be big enough for two!
After a day on the beach retire to the bedroom where the look is high-end luxe and the materials blissfully sensuous. Glass doors roll back onto a private balcony with one of the best views in town. Jump into the super-king bed with gorgeous linen from The White Company and you'll soon be drifting off to sleep, when you wake reach out and hit the bedside switch for the shower and when it's hot and steamy hop in.
A parking space is provided within the secure parking area with gate entry system. Within the parking area is a lockable bike store and to the front of the apartments, a storage area for surfboards.
The Penthouse is fully WiFi ready, so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.
East Penthouse overlooks beautiful Porthminster beach; sleep to the sound of the ocean and wake up to the waves lapping against the shore. With its soft white sand and turquoise blue sea it's easy to see why this beach wins awards year after year. Have your toes in the sand just moments from your front door and enjoy the stunning views over a long lunch at the multi-award winning Porthminster Beach Café.
Looking for a secret, romantic spot for a special occasion or honeymoon? St Ives offers beach cafés nestled on white-sand coves and superb restaurants perfect for dinner à deux.
Walk hand in hand across soft sandy beaches and discover lesser known miles of dune-backed beach which is often deserted.
Experience modern and contemporary art exhibitions at the Tate St Ives beside Porthmeor beach, one of Cornwall's top surfing beaches, and wander through sub-tropical gardens littered with sculptures by one of Cornwall's most famous artists, Barbara Hepworth.
Take the coastal train ride which serves up generous lashings of seaside eye candy. Watch gaping sandy bays, rugged cliffs and rolling waves chug by, then disembark back in arty St Ives.
Join in the latest water-sports craze and explore Cornwall's watery fringes on a stand-up paddleboard. Easy to learn and a great way to see the coast, SUP can be practised in flat water or in the surf, and is an ideal activity for surfing virgins.
How can you come to Cornwall and not dip a toe in the county's favourite watersport? There are beaches for all levels of wave riders - including those who have never dared to squeeze into a wetsuit before. There's surf schools and hire on almost every beach in Cornwall.
This is one of our pet free properties.
