Located within the popular sea side village of Carbis Bay, this property is currently divided into 2 large and very well appointed apartments creating an income producing main or second residence, or alternately a property for investment purposes.

Planning permission (PA16/11040) was recently granted to extend and re-configure the building to create 3 additional apartments. Full details are available through the agents.

Sitting in an elevated position the apartments enjoy good views over the Bay and are within easy reach of the beach.


The building contains two very large apartments, the lower of which could be easily re-configured to create two units. The upper apartment has glorious views over Carbis Bay from the principal rooms and large balcony. An open plan design incorporates a large sitting room, dining area and kitchen. Two double bedrooms, both with walk in wardrobes, flank a family bathroom.

Downstairs, accessed either from the communal front entrance hall, or through the garden doors from the rear is a five bedroom apartment. Each bedroom is a double and one includes an en-suite. The sitting room opens on to a covererd veranda with steps leading down to a garden and large gravelled parking area.

Currently the lower ground floor (accessed from the front garden by a pair of French doors) has been prepared for the installation of an indoor swimming pool which includes a finished concrete shell of the pool, however it has not been lined, nor plumbed.

Currently used as successful holiday lets, each apartment is finished to a high standard and they have been very well maintained.


The planning permission allows for an extension to be added to the lower ground and ground floor of the building. This allows the creation of a garden apartment and gives room above to convert the existing flat into three two bedroom units.

Additionally, re-configuration of the upper apartment adds an additional bedroom.


The St.Ives neighbourhood plan 2015-2030 requires a percentage of new or converted properties to be made available solely to permanent residents. Units 3 & 5 of this conversion have been identified as fitting this criteria. Further information is available through Cornwall Council's planning website or throught the agent.
