Seabirds House is perched in an enviable, elevated location in central St Ives, overlooking Porthmeor Beach on one side. On the other side, the rooftops of this Cornish coastal enclave fall away to the iconic harbour below, with the whole sweep of St Ives Bay providing a stunning backdrop.
The Victorian-era property is divided into four apartments, two of which boast private terraces with breath-taking views. The two-bedroom apartment (Apartment One) also has the huge attraction of private off-road parking. These are highly desirable pieces of St Ives real estate with year-round income potential.
When it comes to location, there are many reasons why Seabirds House flies high. Perched on Godrevy Terrace, the elevated position provides wrap-around views of the mini-peninsula on which St Ives stands; coastal vistas abound on all sides.
It’s also a short walk to all the main attractions of the town including Fore Street, the harbourside, Porthmeor Beach (home to Tate St Ives), Porthgwidden Beach and The Island.
For those apartments without allocated parking, spaces can be found just a few steps away at Barnoon Car Park, and this part of town can be easily accessed avoiding the one-way system around the harbour. There is also a garage available for sale separately and exclusively to purchasers of Seabirds House apartments.
Restaurants, cafes, boutiques and galleries await in the quaint streets of the town below, although guests will find it hard to tear themselves away from those views, seen to advantage through modern sash windows which flood the apartments with natural light.
The building features high ceilings and generous rooms, kept light and airy by those striking windows. Each of the four apartments is being sold with furniture and contents included and a legacy of high-occupation holiday lets should the new owners wish to continue with this substancial form of income generation.
All of the apartments and communal spaces are well-maintained with modern, bright decor and practical fixtures and fittings. Though new owners may want to put their stamp on the properties, there is nothing to stop them being let out straight away and future bookings honoured. Each apartment has a key safe box and an intercom.
Here are some of the stand-out features of these stunning apartments.
- The view from the bay window in Apartment Two is one of the best we’ve ever seen!
- Apartment One’s terrace has near-panoramic views. We’re thinking sunrise yoga, and sunset beers!
- Apartment Five has lots of character and benefits from its own private entrance. We think this would really appeal to keen surfers looking to stay close to Porthmeor.
- Apartment Three also has a lovely bay window creating a light spot for reading, and an unexpected bird’s eye view of the harbour.
- The bathroom suites and kitchens in all apartments are neutral, practical and contain everything holiday guests will need.
These impressive apartments are available as leasehold properties – details of the lease can be provided on request. Guide prices start at £265,000, rising to £495,000 for the two-bedroom apartment with parking.
