If you have a location with a great views, you really need to build a house to take advantage of it. Something like this five-bedroom contemporary modernist property in St Ives, Cornwall.
It really is about that view, with an elevated position overlooking St Ives Bay and Godrevy Lighthouse (once you get past a couple of trees). Can you imagine waking up to that every morning? There’s also easy access to Hain Walk too, which leads to Porthmeor Beach and St Ives Harbour.
As for the house, that’s apparently award winning (although there’s no mention of the specific award), with the majority of glazing (obviously) aimed towards the rear and to the sea.
Beyond those glazed walls you get plenty of open plan living space, with a huge reception room and kitchen dominating the ground floor, leading out to a full width balcony. There’s also a galleried inner hall, study and store room on this floor.
On the lower ground floor you’ll find three double bedrooms (one with en-suite), along with a bath / shower room and access rot the garden.
The first floor has two double bedrooms, both with en-suite and with access to roof terracing.
Outside there is parking for numerous cars, a detached garage, utility room, a hard landscaped front garden with elevated lawn, not to mention deck and patio above two terraced lawns to the rear.
Offers over £1,400,000 if you are interested.
