Cornish Retreats is delighted to offer 'Karenza Cottage'...Hidden away down a private cobbled lane accessed via a gated archway, in a quiet and peaceful setting with a handful of other pretty cottages, away from the bustle yet in the heart of the historic part of Penzance.
Boasting fabulous uninterrupted harbour, sea and coastal views from the main bedroom, offering some period features such as the pretty wooden sash windows, a stonewalled courtyard enjoying the morning sun & being just a few minutes' walk from the main rail, coach and bus stations
'Karenza' is an ideal choice for those wishing to stay in a town location.
The cottage is situated just off ‘Chapel Street’, a sought after and historic area of Penzance., once home to Maria Branwell – mother to the Bronte sisters. Chapel Street is steeped in history with character and charm apparent in its architecture and arts culture. The Egyptian House – a geological Museum built by Penzance Mineralogist Jon Lavin in 1836 is a must see, as is St Marys Church, a beautiful and inspiring piece of architecture, said to date back to the 13th century and later being extended in the 17th and 18th Century. In short, Chapel Street offers historical buildings, a select choice of galleries, antique shops, chic wine bars and fine restaurants’, most famously ‘The Abbey’, once owned by the actress Jean Shrimpton from which ‘Karenza’ is just a stone’s throw away.
