Cornwall is bursting with beautiful homes with incredible views - here’s this month’s pick of those topping seven figures...
St Mary's, Little Petherick
Guide price £1,250,000
St Mary’s resides in a beguiling setting on the North Cornish coast. Situated on Little Petherick Creek and owning approximately 300 feet of the river frontage, this fabulous property has been extensively renovated by the present owners to offer generously proportioned accommodation with large windows which make the most of the light and the views.
St Mary’s sits in its own grounds of approximately 2.3 acres with terraces, woodland, exotic plants and hide away areas’ all adding to the magical atmosphere we think this property exudes.
This spacious five-bedroom property features aspects of the original Arts & Crafts building juxtaposed against new cutting edge design. A boathouse by the river also offers potential for conversion.
Situated at the end of a private drive without any near neighbours, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, St Mary’s is positioned amongst the tree tops, a haven of peace and tranquillity.

Gillan is a delightful creekside
hamlet just outside the mouth of the beautiful Helford River in Falmouth Bay. Penolva overlooks the picturesque St Anthony in Meneage with its sailing school, boat hire and opportunity for moorings and is a private road within minutes walking distance of the creek and Gillan Harbour.
