St Mawes
This enchanting south facing harbour village is found on the eastern side of the Fal Estuary, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with much of its surroundings owned by the National Trust. The village is centred round its quaint harbour, its own beaches and Castle. It has a good wide range of amenities, which are open all year, including butchers, bakers, convenience store, post office / newsagent, doctors, hairdressers, dentist, pharmacy, village hall, church, delicatessen and clothing shops including Fat Face. The village also has two public houses, and an excellent range of cafes, restaurants, art galleries, gift and ice cream shops. St Mawes has long been one of the West Country's more desirable and exclusive destinations, with Olga Polizzi's Hotel Tresanton and the recently re-modelled Idle Rocks Hotel both luring the rich and famous. The village has superbly varied and accessible sailing waters and an active sailing club

In a wider context, Cornwall has been enjoying a renaissance offering a range of accessible attractions such as the Eden Project, the National Maritime Museum, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Tate Gallery and Truro Cathedral. Fine dining Michelin star and celebrity chef restaurants are in abundance, including Rick Stein (Falmouth and Padstow), Jamie Oliver (Fifteen), Nathan Outlaw (Port Isaac), Paul Ainsworth (Padstow), and the Roseland's own Chris Eden at the Driftwood, Rosevine.

The Views
Aspirations and demands of our buyers over the years have shown that the most sought after and exclusive locations are found on the western / Tavern Beach side of the village. Chenoweths is set in an elevated grandstand position in a south facing location commanding an unparalleled vista. In no way can mere photography do justice to the views. Apart from the utility room and en suite bathroom, every room in the property benefits from the stunning views. These encompass the Percuil River, with its yacht and boat moorings, Summers Beach, St Mawes Harbour and Quay, the National Trust owned St Anthony Headland, St Mawes Castle, Falmouth Bay to the Helford River and Lizard Peninsula and to open sea (for more than 30 miles on clearer days). A variety of sailing, wildlife and marine activity is regularly on display all year round.

This light and airy house has been in the ownership of our client for around 20 years as their personal home. The property over the last couple of years has undergone extension and modernisation including the addition of a garage / workshop with extra parking added over and a connecting sun room for extra reception space.

Ground Floor
Upon entering the hall and into the spacious living room one cannot resist being drawn to the views. The living room has a wood burner and is open plan onto the dining room and modern fitted kitchen. This area connects via patio doors onto the covered balcony and sunroom, all offering the stunning views. A door from the sun room leads to the double garage / workshop. Off the living room is the master bedroom suite with en suite dressing room and bath / shower room. From the hall is a utility room, cloakroom / wc and hobbies room / bedroom 5.

Lower Ground Floor
On the lower ground floor are 3 double bedrooms and a shower room off an inner hall. One bedroom has patio doors leading onto the rear south facing gardens.

The Gardens
The rear south facing gardens have been landscaped for ease of maintenance. To one side is a garden / boiler room. To the south western corner is a pedestrian access gate with a footpath over neighbours' properties gardens with steps that lead down to Riviera Lane and onto the waterfront and Tavern Beach. To the front a sweeping driveway leads down to the parking forecourt or up and over the garage.
