Situated on the first floor of a fully refurbished 1910's property, 'Argel Lowen' (Cornish for happy retreat) combines contemporary features with stunning sea views, and makes an ideal base for both families and couples. With arguably the best views of Mevagissey, you have the best of both worlds – you can watch the fishing boats coming and going in the harbour below whilst enjoying the peaceful clifftop location away from the noise and bustle of the port. And it’s just five minutes walk downhill to the fabulous restaurants and shops. Moreover, with parking spaces at a premium here, you will be the envy of many with your own space at the front of the building.
- French doors open out onto an easterly-facing balcony for leisurely breakfasts or evening drinks as you take in the amazing 180 degree panoramic view of sea, village, harbour and Heligan Gardens valley. Unusually for an apartment you also have a patio area at the back, exclusively for Argel Lowen, which is ideal for sunbathing and alfresco dining. There is a large shared lawn area at the rear. The hallway, with plenty of storage and hanging space, leads to the fully-equipped contemporary kitchen with breakfast bar, electric cooker, hob and grill, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, washing-machine & tumble dryer. Open plan living / dining area with new oak expanding dining table and chairs, new modern large sofa and an arm chair.
The apartment has 2 very comfortable bedrooms - the master bedroom has a double divan bed with new deluxe pocket sprung mattress, brown leather padded headboard, built-in double walnut wardrobe with full length mirrors, chest of drawers and bedside tables and lamps. Large patio doors lead out from the bedroom to the patio area. There is a refurbished en-suite bathroom with bath, shower, toilet, basin and bathroom cabinets, electric shaver point and towel rail. The second bedroom is furnished with twin single beds, a built-in wardrobe with full length mirror and cupboard. It has an ensuite luxury shower room with shower cubicle, toilet, mirrored cupboards, heated towel rail, basin and shaver point.
- The apartment is warm, double glazed, and well equipped with free Wifi; freeview TV; DVD player. There are also books, DVDs and board games. Oil central heating and electricity included.
