Luxury retreat with sea views
Trewartha, meaning “Upper Farm” or “The Homestead” in Cornish, built in 1928, benefits from its south facing positioning which overlooks Praa Sands Golf Course with elevated views out to the sea.
Located in an Outstanding Area Natural Beauty and based around the cove from the spectacular Mount’s Bay and St Michael’s Mount, Trewartha has uninterrupted views to Sydney Cove, Praa Sands with Prussia Cove headland views to the right of the valley. So it’s safe to say the location of this property is rather special. Locality is matched by style and comfort inside the truly stunning Trewartha.
Guests can cook up a storm in the sizeable Hamptons-style open plan kitchen, which has been custom designed by George Robinson. Expect high-quality accents at every turn with a two oven electric AGA, a designer Fisher & Paykel American-style fridge freezer, complete with ice and water dispenser, a built-in Bosch dishwasher, Samsung microwave oven and a Siemens washer/dryer. The standout kitchen also boasts a large marble island/breakfast bar so storage is aplenty. The French doors allow light to flood the kitchen area, and lead out onto a large terraced decking space enveloped by gorgeous garden and sea views – the perfect space for entertaining.
There is an open-plan dining room with stunning 2.4m refectory table and bench, comfortably seating six with jaw-dropping sea views. There is also a wood burning stove in the dining area for those cosy nights in. The living area is flooded with natural light, thanks to the bi-folding doors, there’s also separate sliding French doors, which lead out onto the large decking and balcony. A wall mounted SmartTV complete with Sky TV can be enjoyed from the comfy sofa, if guests can tear themselves away from the view that is.
The outdoors is just as inviting as the interior at Trewartha, with a sumptuous rattan corner sofa, with large table and chairs to seat up to 10 people and a Weber Master-Touch charcoal BBQ, so you’re well equipped for alfresco dining. The private garden is safe and well manicured with a large palm tree, mature apple tree, together with a range of exotic Cornish plants and shrubbery.
Leading from the front room here is a further snug for guests to wind down – a great spot to while away the hours. There’s another private terrace accessed through the snug, with balcony and steps down to the garden.
Expect the luxury to continue in Trewartha’s bedrooms. The master suite has the wow-factor, with dual aspect windows, a Juliet balcony and far reaching sea views. There is a large double wardrobe, SmartTV, sofa and dressing table and chair. The light and airy bathroom features a large 6 foot JIG cast iron bath with clawed feet and a shower attachment. And if that wasn’t enough there is a large walk in separate double shower, too.
The two further bedrooms are both doubles, the one downstairs boasts an ensuite shower room, while the other has wonderful sea views.
While work might not be on the cards, there is also a study area with large desk and chair with panoramic sea views, if the moment arises.
After a day at the beach, guests will appreciate the dedicated boot room within the entrance porch, which also has a further separate w/c.
Praa Sands’ stunning mile long sandy beach is a 10 minute walk from Trewartha taking in the historic Pengersick Castle along the way.
The beach at Praa Sands is easy to access, great for families and has a huge expanse of golden sands that children will love building their sandcastles in. There are a few beaches to choose from along this stretch of coastline though and to the east, Marazion Beach comes with spectacular views of St Michael’s Mount across the bay. Dog lovers will be pleased to know that Prussia Cove to the south of Praa Sands welcomes dogs all year around.
Spending time in the water is all part of a Cornish holiday. Whether you book a surf lesson or opt for the more unusual activity of horse swimming on the beach, this stretch of coastline is a little bit magical. Of course, a view from the coastal path will delight walkers and cyclists might like to head slightly inland to take on the 12km Bodmin Beast Cycle Trail.
One of the most famous of Cornish landmarks is only a short drive away from Praa Sands. St Michael’s Mount is a sacred and impressive island with its own castle. At low tide you can walk across the beach on the causeway and discover the island for yourself. There is still a small community of around thirty people living here and using the harbour. Tours of the garden and castle are available and you can even stay for a bite to eat in the cafes. Don’t worry if the tide comes in, you can always catch the ferry back to the mainland.
Eating out is all part of your holiday and Sandbar at Praa Sands serves up classic beachside lite bites and drinks. A couple of miles along the coast, Porthleven has lots of great places to choose from and is known for its wonderful food. It hosts its own food festival in spring each year and Rick Stein has a place here too, serving seasonal seafood. The Harbour Inn has a cosy and comfortable feel and serves traditional pub classics, whilst also catering well for vegetarians and vegans.
You might also like to spend a day shopping in St Ives and visiting the harbour seals or visit the seals at the Gweek Seal Sanctuary, take in a play at The Minnack Theatre, get to know the historic Godolphin Estate or even hop on a helicopter or ferry to take a day trip to the Isles of Scilly.
