3 Salt in St Ives is the perfect holiday home with every inch of the apartment so exquisitely decorated and furnished, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped into the private residence of a very talented interior designer.
Spacious and elegant throughout, this home which is within walking distance of Porthminster Beach, incorporates a neutral colour palette that echoes the seascape beyond, with stones, blues and greys creating a calm and elegant coast-inspired atmosphere. Arranged on the ground floor of a New England style apartment building, 3 Salt occupies a level position and has a fabulous terrace running the entire length of the apartment as well as a private garden with lawn and raised beds. Sliding doors give access from the living room and bedrooms out to the space, where a bubbling hot tub and contemporary outdoor furniture create the perfect sun trap for enjoying fresh air dining or a relaxing soak.
Inside, the living area is open plan and airy with two sink-in sofas and a large coffee table, while the sleek, neatly proportioned kitchen is fully equipped to prepare anything from a simple breakfast to a lavish feast. The formal dining room with its chunky Provencal table and six beautifully upholstered chairs invites evenings of laughter, conversation and time spent together while the apartment’s three superior bedrooms offer guests a sumptuous sanctuary to retreat to after days spent down on the beach. Sophisticated wallpaper designs, upholstered headboards, pintuck cotton bedding and damask soft furnishings lend a luxuriously tactile quality to each of the bedrooms, while the quiet setting and garden views inspire complete relaxation and lazy mornings spent in bed.
Famous for its turquoise waters and beautiful surf beaches, St Ives benefits from a warm subtropical climate that makes it an idyllic holiday destination on Cornwall’s south eastern stretch of coastline. Explore the town’s winding streets and narrow lanes where a rich art culture is apparent, or shop in one of its many boutiques before sampling the local produce in a seafood restaurant overlooking the harbour.
