Burthallan Lane, St Ives, TR26 3AA

Tara is an individual, architect designed contemporary house that is the perfect location for a large family retreat in St Ives. Tara has five bedrooms (plus additional study with double pullout sofa bed), an enclosed sun trap garden and parking for two cars. Set down a quiet narrow lane, bordering fields and just ten minutes walk from the St Ives Tate Gallery and the golden sands of Porthmeor beach, Tara allows guests to enjoy everything that St Ives can offer with the additional bonus of being able to get away from the crowds – the perfect destination to escape.

To maximise the elevated position the living area is on the first floor where there is a very spacious open plan living/dining/kitchen area, with a feature glazed gable end opening onto a full length balcony offering stunning views over St Ives Bay. The ultra modern kitchen features Neff appliances (six ring ceramic hob and double oven), a large American fridge freezer, oak worktops and a large oak dining table comfortably seats twelve guests. The living area is equipped with BT Infinity broadband and a large flat screen television, which can be enjoyed from the large sumptuous and contemporary sofa. BT Vision with the BT Sports package is also available. There is a separate shower room with toilet and a study with double sofa bed on the first floor, with its own full width balcony and equally impressive views over open country and the coast.

Downstairs is where you will find the five bedrooms which consist of two king-size en-suite bedrooms, two twin rooms (two single beds) , and one bunk bed room. There is also a large family bathroom with bath.

The property has oak flooring throughout the upstairs rooms and bedrooms and real slate flooring and tiling to the hallway and bathrooms. The south facing stone-walled garden is laid to lawn and equipped with seating and a kettle BBQ.

Suitable for large parties of 10-12 people you will have all that you need for a memorable holiday in this amazing town; galleries, restaurants, boat trips and breathtaking coastal walks to name but a few.

There is a separate garage which houses a sink, washing machine and tumble dryer and is used for storing the BBQ etc. There is a possibility for a small vehicle to use the garage space, but there is on-site parking included at no additional charge for two cars. Please note the narrow lane approach. This is not suitable for large vehicles. If in any doubt, please ring us to check before booking.
