Kittiwake, a luxurious little house with fabulous views over the bay

Located in: Mousehole
Kittiwake, a luxurious little house with fabulous views over the harbour towards Mount's Bay and St. Michaels Mount, a garden with a view and its very own summer house. The ceilings, whilst sporting the original beams, are a good two feet higher than most properties in the village. Together with the town house sized sash windows and stunning views of the bay, it's the height in the rooms which really gives Kittiwake 'house' stature.

Bedrooms:
Where else would you find a mix of criss-cross open beams, a fabulous view out over the harbour. A very gentle ambience, the king sized bed with its luxurious duvet pillows and quality Egyptian cotton bedding, this room has a very special feel.

Bathrooms:
Distinctly Victorian in style, this bathroom has a real charm about it. Dual aspect, long windows and folding wooden shutters, the slipper bath and the separate power shower with oversized head. The toilet is in a separate room next to the bedroom.

Kitchen:
The kitchen is bespoke with gleaming granite surfaces. A Red Nespresso machine and selection of capsules are provided for your morning caffeine fix. The Dualit kettle and toaster sparkle in the corner, while the extendible breakfast table overlooked by an oversized contemporary clock is placed in just the right position to sit and still enjoy the sea views.

Utility Room:
Just outside the kitchen you will find a small utility area which houses the washing machine and other housekeeping things while the backdoor leads to the garden steps and summerhouse.

Living Room:
The sitting room with a huge open inglenook granite fireplace and a log burning stove. The ceilings, whilst sporting the original beams, are a good two feet higher than most properties in the village sporting stunning views of the bay. A contemporary sofa is perfect to curl up on and whether you light the log burner or not, the under floor heating of the black slate floor will make sure your toes never get cold.

Other:
Summer House with one of the best Views of Mousehole over the rooftops to the harbour and Mounts Bay as far as the Lizard. With Binoculars you might see Seals or Passing Dolphins.

Cleaning/Towels/Linen/Maid service:
The soft organic cotton towels and bathrobes really add to the experience. Kittiwake is maintained by a professional housekeeper.

Outside
To the rear of Kittiwake, steep winding steps lead up to the beautiful terraced garden full of alpine plants, whilst breath-taking views can be found from the beautiful summer house and terrace. Enjoy an evening BBQ, a spot of lunch or just chilling with a coffee and the Sunday papers. Views really are spectacular from your own private vantage point.
