An exciting opportunity to acquire an individual building plot situated in one of the most exclusive waterside locations in Cornwall. From a computer, click the "virtual tour" tabs for a fully immersive 3D tour and be inspired!
Planning permission has been recently granted for a distinctive and contemporary detached residence. The property will be carefully positioned on the site, using the topography to take full advantage of the stunning and tranquil views over the Percuil River to Froe Creek and St Anthony Headland National Trust countryside beyond. The proposed dwelling combines an architectural fusion between new and old, being sympathetic yet unique within its surroundings. Providing family sized and spacious levels of accommodation, cleverly interlinked with glass hall and landing areas, this most impressive residence will offer flexible space that meets the requirements of modern day luxury waterside living.
Visualise Living In This Dream Home!
To help visualise the property when built, a fully immersive 3D interactive virtual tour has been produced from the landscaper and architect’s planned drawings as per the planning permission granted. For the best compatible experience, please go to a computer before you click on the "vitual tour" tabs. You can navigate around the property, touring from room to room, and in some instances you can change colour schemes by clicking the orange ball icons as well.
Freshwater Lane is a peaceful area with boatyards and beautiful creekside walks, within a few hundred yards of the St Mawes Sailing Club Quay, 600 yards of Summers Beach and a further 250 yards to the central village area, which makes it attractive to second home and permanent residents.
The overall appearance of the proposed dwelling is a crisp modern structure with a design objective of strength and style, which has deliberately large windows to take full advantage of the beautiful views as well as allow a lot of natural light pour in to the property. This is exemplified when entering the impressive Reception Hall, which has a sea of glass to the front and rear as well as from floor to ceiling on both ground and first floor levels. To one side is an open plan lobby giving access to a Snug/Sitting Room, Study and a Cloakroom with “His and Hers” W/c’s.
Leading from the Reception Hall through a pocket door, one will be in awe of the spacious, light and airy open plan Living Room, Kitchen and Dining Room running the full length of the property. The Living Room has a featured fireplace to one wall and picture windows and doors to admire the captivating yet tranquil views as well as provide access to a sun terrace. The Dining Area has access to the west facing landscaped rear gardens for dining alfresco.
Study And Snug/ Sitting Room
The Study has French doors leading to a terrace with tranquil river views beyond. The Snug/Sitting Room is designed as extra independent reception space, perhaps for the children and/or grandchildren who can come and go from the landscaped gardens through the bi-fold patio doors.
Utility / Boot Room
The Utility/Boot Room, located off the Kitchen, is purposely designed as an informal entrance for daily use arriving back from an enjoyable days sailing, sunbathing on nearby beaches or one of the many nearby river or coastal walks.
Upstairs you’ll instantly capture panoramic river views, which can be enjoyed through the picture windows over the Galleried Reception Hall. The Master Bedroom Suite comprises a Balcony, with glass balustrades to enjoy the magnificent panorama, a Walk-In Dressing Room and an En-Suite Bath/Shower Room. The Guest Bedroom Suite comprises a Walk-In Closet as well as an En-Suite Shower Room. A Family Bath/Shower Room serves the remaining two Double Bedrooms, although an area between the two bedrooms is designed to cater either as an en-suite for one of the bedrooms or potentially to create a 5th Bedroom if required.
Proposed Landscaped Gardens
The external landscaping forms a very important feature of the planning permission. Once the cars are parked in the drive or the double garage, landscaped steps and pathways lead to the formal or informal entrances. The rear garden is west facing to attract the afternoon and evening sun where alfresco dining with privacy is imagined whilst the front terraces enjoy the attractive views and the sunrises whilst sipping the first tea or coffee of the day.

With its charming waterside bars and shops, St Mawes has long been one of the county’s most desirable locations.
Life here revolves around the water and there are numerous moorings in the harbour. There’s also an active sailing club, with a full programme of regattas, club races and national championships. The village itself is in an area of outstanding natural beauty, with much of the surrounding landscape owned by the National Trust. Wander past quaint thatched cottages to the harbour quay and you’ll be greeted by sweeping sea views and the green hills of the Roseland Peninsula. You could while away afternoons exploring the south-facing beaches and Tudor castle, or hop on a water taxi to Falmouth and enjoy the bustling shops and cosmopolitan atmosphere. There’s plenty happening in the evening too. Visit one of St Mawes’ two quintessentially Cornish pubs, enjoy cocktails on the terrace of the recently re-modelled Idle Rocks or experience dinner at Olga Polizzi’s renowed Hotel Tresanton.
