St Mawes has been voted one of the “hippest” places in the UK for 2018 by Travel Supermarket. Famous for being a quaint, Cornish fishing village, it boasts world-class holiday accommodation. The stunning coastal scenery and traditional Cornish charm are irresistible to holidaymakers. Conveniently, it’s only a short ferry ride from Falmouth too.
The Head Chef at The Idle Rocks Hotel, Guy Owens, describes the area as “A good, delicate balance of old, natural Cornwall… and newer money coming in, so there’s an air of kind of luxury”. It’s no wonder St Mawes is gaining momentum as a tourist destination.
For those fortunate to be living there, the sea views, tranquil settings and Cornish way of life are almost incorporated within the buildings. But homes are hard to come by.
We’ve been contracted to design and construct a 3 bed, 3,000 sq ft, family home on this unusual plot of land. With its sloping nature, our architects have had their work cut out for them. But, with slopes come height, exactly what you want for utilising the outstanding coastal views.
Currently in phase 1 of construction, reinforced concrete foundations have been laid, with retaining walls creating this dream home’s shell. The superstructure will be out to tender over the next couple of months, completing phase 2.
