Designed from an empty shell, this amazing cottage has had no expense spared in creating a truly unique space, more akin to a slick boutique London hotel, than a fisherman's cottage in Cornwall.

Split over two levels, downstairs you'll find the open plan living room and kitchen, whilst upstairs the whole space has been opened to the rafters with the bedroom area divided from the shower room by a built in wardrobe.

Downstairs, the first half of the living space has a fantastic chesterfield sofa, coffee table and 40" television above a state-of-the-art electric fireplace, a great spot to chill-out in after a long walk on the beach. The L-shaped kitchen divides the space from the living area with a kitchen and a breakfast bar dining area. At the back you will find the downstairs loo.

Up the stairs the space feels surprisingly large for a cottage of this size with a fantastic 6ft super king bed, ample storage, a flat screen TV and a brilliant walk in shower area. The ceilings have been opened up to expose the rafters above.

The magic of this space though is not the practicality, great as it is, but the style in which it is finished. The space has been meticulously thought out to maximize the compact size of the cottage. The finish is exceptional, amazing textures combine with mirrors, superb lighting and works of art to give this place an overwhelming quality usually reserved only for the very best city hotels.

The whole cottage has been fitted with underfloor heating, so no ugly radiators to worry about, and since the cottage has been complete re-insulated and soundproofed, you can rest assured this is one of the most private and spectacular properties in Cornwall.

PLEASE NOTE: Parking available in undercover garage a short 4 min walk away.

The Cornwall region

Set on the North West coast of Cornwall and boasting one of the warmest climates in the UK, thanks to the Atlantic Gulf Stream, it's easy to see why the Guardian named it Best Seaside Town. There is plenty to do in a town famous for its thriving art scene and The Tate St Ives, one of only 4 branches of the Tate Gallery.

St Ives

Moon Shadow is located a minutes walk away from the gorgeous Porthmeor Beach and many of the local attractions. As you'd imagine with a town popular with artists, St Ives has a happening after-hours scene where you can find anything from small cosy pubs to stylish bars. There are also a multitude of local restaurants which serve anything from delicious home-made food to top quality restaurant fare. St Ives also boasts one of the oldest Inns in Cornwall, The Sloop Inn being dated circa 1312. A walk around the town reveals hidden art galleries, harbour side eateries and beachside cafes. There are 4 beaches nearby including Porthmeor Beach, Porthgwidden Beach and Porthminster Beach. The local countryside also has great walking and hiking trails that range in difficulty and length. With something for everyone, St Ives really is the perfect seaside getaway!

"Fantastic little property only a stones throw from everything you could need."

This property is an old, one up, one down-type fishermans cottage, located literally twenty seconds walk from Porthmeor beach. However, the interior is not quite what you would expect. It has been rec… More
