This chilled-out, highly-prized family residence is located in the Downalong district at the heart of St Ives in one of the iconic streets in this vibrant seaside town. With everything on the doorstep, it is tucked away in a private courtyard, just right to relax at the end of a day at the beach or sightseeing. With space for four, wonderful Wella is a luxurious home-from-home holiday cottage with a beautifully-equipped open plan living area, sumptuous bedrooms and two luxurious ensuite tiled bathrooms with a fabulous walk-in shower in one and a bath big enough for two in the other. Stylish and thoughtfully decorated, this holiday gem is in a truly wonderful location. An upside-down design, the bedrooms are downstairs to make the most of the St Ives light in the open-plan living area which has character oak beams. The décor offers a playful, beachy vibe, focusing on vibrant colours, with natural materials. The chic modern fireplace is located below the flat-screen television, amidst comfy chairs and a fabulous sofa to hunker down to relax for the evening. The kitchen area is designed for ease, extending to a dining area, with a gas hob and oven and premium brand equipment, plus a large breakfast bar/work surface area. Bedrooms are both gloriously ensuite with underfloor heating.
