Introduction

A superb opportunity exists to purchase an individual building plot of around two thirds of an acre, with planning permission granted for a secluded luxury retreat in one of Cornwall’s most prestigious postcodes. Sitting just moments from the water’s edge, the building plot has captivating and tranquil views over the Percuil River and surrounding National Trust countryside. The location for this dream home, once built, would make an idyllic family home or summer residence.

Planning History

Under Planning Permission PA12/08942, extant planning consent exists for a single and substantial contemporary 5/6 bedroom detached house plus a detached boat-store / garage with first floor guest accommodation over. Building works commenced in 2016 and therefore this consent is still live. A detailed planning application (PA18/05443) was submitted for the creation of two detached houses which was approved on appeal. A further application was submitted and granted under PA21/00336 which amended the scheme for the two detached houses to add basements and other amendments. Under planning application PA22/01490, the site has current planning permission granted from the local authority to build two spacious and bespoke detached houses, with basements, landscaped gardens, detached garages plus a detached pavilion and swimming pool for plot 1.

Living The Dream

Relating to all the relevant planning permissions, the designs combine an architectural fusion between new and old, being sympathetic yet unique within the surroundings. Each concept offers a timeless Cornish vernacular house that incorporates a natural pallet of materials. Providing family sized and spacious light and airy levels of accommodation, the properties are able to offer flexible space that meets the requirements of modern day living, together with guest accommodation and parking facilities for both cars and boats. Each proposal has been carefully positioned on the site, using the topography to take full advantage of the beautiful water views over the Percuil River and National Trust countryside. Within the planning history, permission is granted for an outdoor swimming pool, a detached pavilion, landscaping and detached garages with sail lofts over. In summary, subject to any necessary planning revisions, this remarkable opportunity will appeal to those looking to build their coastal dream home to their own design aspirations and specifications.

St Mawes

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 ferry to Falmouth and enjoy the bustling shops and cosmopolitan atmosphere. There’s plenty happening in the evenings too. Visit one of St Mawes’ two quintessentially Cornish pubs, enjoy cocktails on the terrace of the chic Idle Rocks or experience dinner at Olga Polizzi’s renowned Hotel Tresanton.
