The cloak room and family bathroom are also found off the hallway, both of which are fitted to a high standard with modern styling and decor. To the right side of the hallway are stairs which lead down to the lower level with a spacious study or a 5th double bedroom. There is also a fitted utility room and internal access to the large double garage. This lower level has the potential to be converted into a ground floor apartment ideal for elderly relatives or disability use subject to planning permission.

. 2 The upper level is accessed from the hallway with a small staircase rising to the most important rooms in the property. Positioned facing the front is a superb bright sitting room with large sliding doors onto a stunning large infinity glass surround balcony where the panoramic views speak for themselves. A focal feature of the room is the grand fire place with wood burning stove, on the opposite side of the room are double doors that open to a lovely balcony again having river views. Also on this level is the most spectacular kitchen/dining room, perfect for entertaining with family and friends, truly a room to be seen.

. 3 At the rear of the property there are three sets of double doors which open onto three individual balconies looking over the gardens. The bespoke kitchen is beautifully fitted with an extensive range of matching units, glass display cabinets and a matching dresser. To one side of the kitchen is the recessed AGA cooking range with two ovens, two grills and a five ring ceramic hob. There is also a superb matching central island and a range of integrated appliances plus plenty of space for the dining table. This room also has oak timber flooring with under floor heating.

Gardens The extensive manicured gardens surround the property with large sculptured lawns edged with a variety of mature trees, hedging, shrubs and a number of well stocked flower beds. To one side of the property is the paved patio area perfect for the morning sun. A path leads down the side of the property to the rear garden which is very private and a great place for a play area and barbecues. Steps lead down to the rear courtyard area where there are further stairs rising to the kitchen balcony. Continuing around the property there is a large gravelled area providing further parking or an area large enough to store a boat. The garage is located under the pillared balcony with two single doors and provides plenty of storage. The garage also houses the heating controls.

Please note This property has the potential to be divided into two properties. One side would be converting the two levels into a small house whilst the opposite side across the link hallway could be a 2/3 bedroom bungalow. This could create the opportunity for holiday letting or multifamily use. (Subject to planning permission).

Location The exclusive waterside village of St Mawes sits on the eastern side of the Fal Estuary, one of Cornwall's most desirable destinations with a distinctive Mediterranean atmosphere. From the village you can access the beautiful unspoiled countryside of the Roseland Peninsula also linked to the port of Falmouth and Truro via the King Harry Car Ferry across the River Fal. The Roseland Peninsula is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty which offers superb scenery and walks, a number of beautiful beaches, coves and general feeling of peace and tranquillity.

. 4 St Mawes is centred around its small stone harbour and has its own beaches, sailing club, moorings, castle and a variety of good pubs and restaurants, including Olga Polizzi's Hotel Tresanton, and the recently stunningly refurbished Idle Rocks Hotel and St Mawes Hotel. There is a regular passenger ferry from the harbour to the town of Falmouth across the estuary, and also in the summer to the picture postcard Place Manor across the Percuil River. This is the perfect location for those wanting either a permanent or a second home away from the city life.
