About this property

This exceptional holiday home with its incredible entertainment space and *heated swimming pool, resides just a short stroll from Carbis Bay beach and offers guests a sublime escape in one of Cornwall’s most prestigious coastal destinations.

Beautifully renovated and sympathetically extended, large rooms and bay windows nod to the home’s 1930’s origins and serve to enhance the character of this wonderfully contemporary house, while luxurious furnishings, plush décor and high-quality fittings lend a superior edge throughout.

The living spaces within the home are cleverly laid out and feature a large open plan kitchen and dining room which spills out to the alfresco entertainment area and pool terrace via two sets of bifold doors. Perfect for summer days, guests can soak up the sun while lounging around the pool, or fire up the barbecue for fresh air suppers that can be enjoyed either outside or in. Two sitting rooms (both with entertainment systems) mean that parents get to relax and unwind with grown-up conversation while children watch their own movies or TV shows, and four stunning bedrooms (two of which are en-suite) offer exquisite comfort and well-thought-out versatility to suit both couples and family groups.

With its crescent of white sand, turquoise water and lush vegetation, Carbis Bay is a bucket-list destination on Cornwall’s iconic north coast and boasts a world-class family friendly beach as well as ideal water sports conditions. Board and beach hire companies abound offering SUP lessons, tours and kayak safaris that cater to all abilities, so days spent paddling the surf or playing on the sand are firmly on the agenda. Dining out options include stunning beach front restaurants like the Ugly Butterfly and Beach Club while more of the foodie and art culture of the area can be relished in nearby St Ives; within easy reach by car it's also just a short, scenic journey by train and is reported to be one of the queen's favourite routes. For those who fancy something slightly more energetic, the south west coast path runs to either St Ives in one direction or to Porthkidney Sands in the other, and affords walkers some amazing coastal scenery over St Ives Bay.
