Absolute beachfront iving on St. Ives Bay, For Sale or Rental. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have your own piece of paradise in the Cornish Caribbean. Once the home and studio of the famous artist John Miller, this property has been split to create two successful holiday lets; there is planning in place to build a one bedroom holiday let below this property.

Spectacular World Class Position overlooking St. Ives Bay and close to the Location of the 2020 G7 World Leaders Meeting. Three Properties exclusively positioned on the extensive golden sands of Porthkidney Beach, St. Ives Bay, Cornwall.

All three houses allow you to wake up and look straight out to the stunning and iconic views of St Ives Bay and Godrevy Lighthouse.   Situated in the sought-after tranquillity of Lelant village along the south-west coastal route and nestled between the beach and the beautiful West Cornwall Golf Course. A perfect property for any sea sports, art or golf enthusiast. With private steps and vehicular ramp onto Porthkidney Beach and enjoying stunning views from all major rooms, garden and sun terrace of the golden sands and blue seas of the renowned and desirable St. Ives Bay.   The Beach House, Ferry House and Ferryman's Rest are a perfect haven for those looking to escape the hectic pace of everyday life. A truly stunning location to experience the unique 'light' of St Ives Bay.

Watch the ebb and flow of the tide while having your morning tea or coffee. At the end of the day taking a moonlight stroll along the deserted beach, accompanied by the soothing sounds of the sea.  The Beach, West Cornwall Golf Course and St. Uny Church are your only neighbours. The Beach House was the studio of artist John Miller and where he painted his world famous seascapes, such as on the front cover of Chris Rea's "King of The Beach" album. Ferry House has never been on the market, always being sold privately. Ferry House includes a private covered heated swimming pool and vehicular ramp on and off the beach.
