Painstakingly renovated by a talented interior designer, this two-bedroom home exudes a sense of modern sophistication, whilst preserving its historical charm and whimsy. From the meticulously restored centuries-old staircase to the Victorian-era mosaic tiles, sash windows, and charming exposed beams, each character feature tells its own tale of bygone eras. The contemporary design elements are equally remarkable, with the beautifully modern kitchen and bathrooms standing out as exceptional features. This property is available fully furnished, ready for you to move straight in. We recommend booking an appointment to view at your earliest convenience.

The Property

As you approach the property, the front elevation makes a fantastic first impression: a commanding three-story height adorned with elegant sash windows, and boasting a gorgeous paint colour that hints this is not your average property inside.

There are two front entrances, but we’ll begin our property tour at the one leading into the living room. This is the heart of the home, a cosy and stylish space ideal for curling up on the sofa with a good book. A warm glow emanates from the inset living flame gas fire, casting a soft, flickering light that dances across the walls. Relaxing in this room evokes the feeling of stepping into the pages of your favourite interior design magazine.

In the internal hallway, a majestic staircase ascends, adorned with ornate handrails and intricate balustrades, immediately drawing the eye as the focal point of the space. Suspended gracefully amidst the twists and turns of the staircase, a striking feature pendant light hangs, casting its glow upon every intricate detail. The juxtaposition of this contemporary and sleek light fixture against the architectural grandeur of the historic staircase creates a captivating visual harmony.

The kitchen stands out as my favourite room, boasting finishes that are sure to impress even the most discerning of buyers. From the exquisite cabinetry adorned with brass handles to the luxurious composite stone marble worktops, every detail has been carefully considered.

The dining room offers a door leading out to Chapel Street, enhancing accessibility and connection to the outdoors. A captivating exposed brick panel adds character and charm to the space, creating a focal point that draws the eye. Flooded with natural light streaming in through both the window facing the front and the skylight above, the room feels bright, airy, and inviting, perfect for enjoying meals with friends and family. There is also a ground floor cloakroom.

Now, let’s head upstairs.

Here, you'll discover two generously proportioned and beautifully crafted bedrooms, each boasting well-appointed and luxurious en-suite facilities that evoke a spa-like ambiance. The top floor bedroom is particularly striking, featuring dramatic vaulted ceilings adorned with exposed 'A-frames', imbuing the space with a cozy yet spacious atmosphere. Offering scenic sea glimpses stretching over the harbour and towards the bay, this room provides a serene retreat.

A Port Town with Proper Charm…

In the late 1700s this Cornish town became a haven for pirates, smugglers, and other bandits, who used the town’s harbour and nearby coves, as a base of operations. One hundred years later, the town would become indelibly linked in the public’s consciousness, to this romanticized time period, when Gilbert and Sullivan released their famous comedic opera, “The Pirates of Penzance”. The premiere screening of which, took place at the Fifth Avenue Theatre in New York City, and made its London debut a year later.

You may be relieved to hear, that when you visit modern day Penzance, you are unlikely to encounter roaming buccaneers, galleons and gunpowder. You are, however, very likely to encounter warm hospitality, ornate architecture, picturesque scenery, and an abundance of local activities to enjoy.

You might be surprised at the strength of the links Penzance also has to more modern popular culture.

For example, the town was the childhood hometown of Primetime Emmy Award winning actress Thandiwe Newton OBE, who recently played a starring role in America’s hit TV show ‘West World’. Penzance was also the childhood home to famous actor Sam Palladio, well known for his role in ABC’s stateside soap opera ‘Nashville’.
