Hillside, Skidden Hill, St Ives

Luxurious, spacious accommodation over 3 floors close to beach, superb views.

Hillside is a beautifully renovated and generously proportioned Victorian townhouse that comfortably sleeps 6 (8 using the sofa bed), located in the very heart of St.Ives. Internally, high ceilings adorn the property which has 3 bedrooms, all of which feature fully lined blackout curtains, with the addition of stylish sustainably sourced teak shutters in Bedrooms One and Two.


The house also boasts 4 bathrooms, 3 of which are en-suite to the 3 double bedrooms and all feature high quality fittings by Italian designers Porcelanosa.

As well as 2 separate living areas on the ground and first floor and a stunning large & newly designed private rear garden with sun terrace (a real rarity in St. Ives), there is also a private balcony to the bedroom at the top of the property affording wonderful views to the harbour, the Island and Atlantic Ocean.

Conveniently, Hillside also comes with its own private parking space in a gated private car park directly opposite the house. A double entrance leads to a bright and airy hallway featuring polished marble monochrome tiles. Bedroom One, immediately off the hallway, is a beautifully tranquil and spacious room comprising a double bed, large bay window with floor to ceiling double-glazed sash windows and shutters. This leads to an large ensuite bathroom complete with glass-fronted shower.

The adjacent Bedroom Two faces the rear of the house with views over the St. Ives rooftops, provides flexible sleeping accommodation and comprises a double bed, which can be separated to form two single beds if required. This bedroom also has its own ensuite bathroom with a large bath and accompanying shower.

Continuing along the hallway is another bathroom, with a glass-framed rainforest shower. Beyond lies the Garden Room - a gorgeous and peaceful living space affording views over the rear garden and the harbour beyond making it an ideal place to watch TV, read a good book or simply admire the view. A sofa bed enables this room to be utilised as a fourth bedroom if required taking the total number of potential guests to 8.

Upstairs leads to a landing and onto the main living area - the entire floor is open plan with a dining and living space that benefits from dual aspect windows which let the light flow in, but framed by floor to ceiling shutters to afford privacy as needed. The state-of-the- art open plan kitchen-diner seats 8 comfortably and features Siemens appliances throughout, as well as touches such as Dualit kettle and toaster, a wine fridge and Nespresso maker..

The living area features comfy seating and an ultra HDTV with surround sound and Apple TV. Technology at Hillside also includes WiFi and a Sonos wireless sound-system throughout the property.

Back on the landing, which also houses a w/c, a door opens to reveal a spiral staircase that leads up to the top floor and one of the house's best assets - Bedroom Three, in the eaves, with a double bed and en suite bathroom. Externally, a glass balcony can be accessed from the bedroom's glass double doors to afford a spectacular panoramic view of St. Ives harbour, the Island and the ocean beyond.

To the rear is the large enclosed designed garden - a rarity in St Ives - accessed via a spiral staircase, featuring two decked areas with comfortable seating and dining areas - one nearest the house and then another at the end of the garden under the pergola with lights, allowing you to enjoy the long summer evenings in the privacy of your own outdoor living space. There is ample room to enjoy dining al fresco, with table, chairs and parasol and a Weber grillmaster BBQ, complete with firebowl.
