Gwithian has been interior designed creating a lofty contemporary feel, with a dash of coastal character.  Natural light floods the open plan space for a welcoming atmosphere.  A glass door from the entrance hall leads into the open plan kitchen/dining/living area featuring twin turrets and double French doors that open out onto a Juliet balcony. The super spacious corner sofa is paired with coastal inspired cushions, perfectly complimenting its seaside location. Two beautiful bedrooms ensure a touch of luxury at the day's end, as you sink under marshmallow duvets and fresh linens.  A sleek stylish kitchen with highly polished slate worktops is superbly equipped for budding chefs.
