This accomplished conversion of a Cornish warehouse can be found in the heart of the historic fishing village of Newlyn, just moments from the sea front.
The three-bedroom freehold property is the largest in a trio of houses created by the award-winning architectureAND in 2010 from a former industrial building. Determined to retain the drama and sense of space of the original 19th century warehouse, architectureAND created impressive triple-height areas that run throughout the houses and also kept the original oversized apertures.
The beautiful granite walls of the warehouse have also been left exposed to further keep the spirit of the original building present. The walls have been complemented by slate flooring (with underfloor heating), an impressive suspended oak staircase and other natural materials that have been sourced as locally as possible. The roof was also completely replaced and features new natural slate and copper rainwater goods.
Accommodation on the ground floor includes a living room, kitchen and dining area. The former opens out onto a riverside terrace. On the first floor there are two bedrooms and a bathroom, with a master bedroom suite taking up the entire second floor.
Newlyn is a picturesque fishing village on the Cornish coast, ten miles from St. Ives.

Newlyn is under two miles from Penzance, a larger town with a wide variety of services including a train station that runs direct services to London Paddington, and the celebrated Art-Deco Jubilee Pool.
