A grand Georgian townhouse set in the historic heart of this iconic harbour town
Morrab View is a grand Georgian town house located overlooking the peaceful 19th Century Morrab Gardens and offers distant sea views from the upper floors. Set within a prestigious terrace in the heart of the historic town of Penzance it’s a large house offering comfort and space across five floors. It is perfectly located for a morning stroll down to the seafront or a wander through the extensive sub-tropical gardens opposite before exploring the historic streets, galleries and shops in this iconic harbour town.
At Morrab View you’ll enjoy the balance of space and privacy for a memorable family holiday. Comfort is key and you’ll find four bedrooms, three bath/shower rooms, an adult’s reading/music room and a very well-equipped kitchen next to a breakfast room. The open plan dining area leads into the sitting room creating a grand and wonderfully relaxed social living space. Further rooms include a games room, a cloakroom, utility room and boot room. Relaxed evenings can be enjoyed with a sundowner in the secluded front garden.
The third floor is dedicated to the master bedroom suite with a shower room, dressing room and a study next door. Escape to this floor to enjoy the views or to use the study if you are ‘working from your holiday’.
The lower ground floor with a king bedroom, a sofa, shower room and a well-equipped utility room containing a dishwasher, electric oven, hob and a fridge/freezer makes Morrab View perfect for an extended family holiday as the in-laws can have the luxury of their own space and private entrance.
Morrab View is perfectly located to explore Penzance. It is a town full of hidden charms from the gardens, walks, ancient sites and foodie delights to the sea water lido with geothermally heated pool. The promenade extends to connect with Marazion, Newlyn and Mousehole which are all within walking distance.
The abundance of space means your family can relax with the opportunity to come together or for everyone to find their own space within the house.
You’ll enter the house via ten granite steps, arriving into the grand hallway with doors to two bedrooms, the reading/music room with a piano, chairs and a decorative fireplace. Stairs lead you to the lower ground floor and first floor.
The lower ground floor has a very private king size bedroom leading to the front garden via a few steps. There is a shower room with a rainfall shower. The utility room and boot room are great spaces for dog beds, storage, bikes and boots!
Indulge in the master suite on the second floor or work away in the study with superfast broadband. The living, dining and cooking takes place on the palatial first floor with a lovely breakfast room to read the paper or settle little ones whilst you are next door cooking up a feast.
On rainy days, indulge in a marathon of board games after a brisk stroll along the nearby promenade, or relax in the music room for a good ol’ sing song and turn the gas flame effect fire on for a relaxed evening of book reading, or snuggle up to a film on the large TV in the living room.
Teenagers will love the chilled-out games room upstairs with sea views, hammocks and bean bags. The practical boot room is ideal for offloading walking boots and wet coats and houses two dog beds ready for your four-legged friends.
Cooking & eating
The very well-equipped kitchen has all that you need to rustle up a delicious Cornish feast that you never find time for at home. There’s an electric aga with gas burners, boiling water tap, bean to cup coffee machine, dishwasher, larder and a fridge/freezer with an ice maker. Enjoy relaxed breakfasts in the breakfast room or extravagant dinners with great conversation in the beautiful dining room which seats up to ten and opens up with adjoining doors to the living room, creating a wonderfully social space for family dinners.
On that note – if you’d like a special event or any night of the week catered for do ask, we have some superb local contacts.

You’ll come into the rear lower ground floor of the house where you park. Here you will find a large utility room/second kitchen. It has everything needed to make Morrab View feel like a home from home, including: washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer. The lower ground floor bedroom can make the most of this by making a cuppa or breakfast to enjoy in the garden in the morning, instead of popping up to the second floor.
Quietly location just a short stroll from Penzance’s popular Chapel Street and the high street, this property is situated perfectly for exploring the best the town and surrounding areas has to offer. Be right in the heart of it all but tucked away enough to enjoy a relaxing stay. The best local attractions, shops, galleries, bars, pubs and restaurants are all within walking distance. You can be in the oldest pub in Penzance, The Turks Head, dating from 1233, in a matter of minutes. Have a drink or a meal here and you’ll be stepping back in history, enjoying the same public house as pirates and smugglers did 750 years ago. Or walk along the seafront to the famous Jubilee Pool, the UK’s largest art deco seawater lido.
Penzance is the gateway to the Land’s End peninsula and in the far west of Cornwall nothing is far away. The fishing harbour of Newlyn is a 20-minute walk along the seafront promenade, and the quaint village of Mousehole is only a 10 minutes’ drive away. Marazion, with the famous St. Michael’s Mount, is easy to walk or drive to. St. Ives is easily reached using the scenic rail line from Penzance station. Sennen Cove, The Minack Theatre in Porthcurno, and The Cornish Mining World Heritage Site on the north coast, are all an easy drive away.
