350 yards from the Tate Gallery in St Ives, with lovely long views over Porthmeor Beach and 'the island', a modern house on a quiet no-through road ending in a footpath to the Coast Path, and 400 yards from shops, pubs and restaurants. On the seaward side is an open piece of lawned garden with seats and great views, and, at the back, a neat enclosed little paved courtyard (table/chairs, barbecue) with potted plants. Inside, stylish, uncluttered and comfortable. Entrance porch (for coats/boots/boards/wetsuits). Stable doors into small hall and open-plan living/dining/kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with laminate floor, L-shaped sofa, 'living flame' gas fire, TV/DVD and sea/beach views through patio door. From the hall, stairs up to two bedrooms - a double (5' bed) with super views, and one with two singles; smart bathroom (suite, shower over bath) with tiled floor. Unusually for St Ives, parking is possible on the quiet road, otherwise public car park (350 yards). A great position for enjoying St Ives, the beach and Coast Path, without the need for a car.
