"TO THE LIGHTHOUSE, ST IVES"
If you are looking for space, light and stunning views out to sea read on. Located in a sought after terrace set looking over one of Cornwall’s most charming towns, To The Lighthouse is a delightful apartment with elegant styling and large windows, thoughtfully furnished with your comfort in mind to create an oasis of calm from the hubbub of this beautiful, bustling harbour town. Stepping inside you are met with a refreshing space and incredible far-reaching sea views over the harbour towards Godrevy lighthouse.
It is said that Virginia Woolf spent the early summers of her life in St Ives gazing out at the view of the golden sands and deep blues of St Ives and beyond all the way to Godrevy Lighthouse. Inspired by what she saw, it’s referenced in many of her later works and most famously in her novel ‘To The Lighthouse’.
St Ives is a town that never tires of things to do and it’s maze of higgledy-piggledy cobbled streets are filled with some of the best restaurants, cafes, shops and galleries Cornwall has to offer. For any art enthusiast, they’ll be well aware of the legacy that St Ives has made on the art world, with its numerous art galleries including the famous Tate St Ives, Barbara Hepworth Museum and Bernard Leach Pottery. It’s increasingly become a popular destination to travel to and it’s not hard to see why people fall in love with it and come back year after year. A quaint town surrounded by beaches with sand so golden and sea so blue it could be mistaken for the Caribbean. The beaches have become a favourite for many of the local surfers and the surf schools at Porthmeor offer the opportunity for you to try it out for yourself. Or heading to the harbour you can hop on a boat and take a trip out to see the seals. A town where you will want for nothing and everything is just on your door.
Set across the first floor, the spacious living room really is the hub of this home with amazing views from the three floor to ceiling windows. It's open-planned and flooded with natural light with a sofa and dining area with a table for four - at the end of a day spent exploring, sink into the lovely squishy sofa and switch on the TV and relax in front of a film, or just simply watch the world go by gazing out to sea.
