6 Bedroom House - Terraced, St Ives
Albany Terrace, St Ives, Cornwall, TR26 2BS
Albany Terrace is a grand seaward facing terrace just a few minutes walk from St Ives town centre, the harbour and fabulous beaches. The late Victorian design provides well proportioned and substantial family accommodation and whilst the property retains many original features of the period the addition of gas central heating and contemporary styling make this a most comfortable and versatile home. The accommodation on the ground floor comprises dining room, living room, kitchen/breakfast room and a utility room and WC. On the first floor is a separate WC, 3 double bedrooms, one with en suite shower room, one with a shower and washbasin and the front facing bedroom with sea views has a 'Jack and Jill' en suite bathroom. The second floor is accessed by 2 staircases which lead to the front and rear of the house. To the rear is a large double bedroom with en suite facilities and to the front are 2 further bedrooms and a shower room. There is a long lawned garden to the front and sheltered gardens to the rear along with a workshop and greenhouse. An area of land to the front of Albany Terrace has traditionally been used for parking although this is not on the title deeds.
From Albany Terrace a gravelled path leads up to the solid wood front door with the lawned front garden to the right hand side. This opens into the vestibule. The gravelled path is shared with 4 Albany Terrace.
