St Ives Cornwall ! Enough said ! Could retire here to this lovely town. Ocean Loft is cleverly thought out in its design giving spectacular views across Porthmeor beach and the town centre plus the house has it's own garage.

About the neighbourhood
Ocean Loft is superbly located above Porthmeor Beach and the Tate Gallery and has stunning, uninterrupted views across the bay from Mans' Head to the Island from one aspect and the whole of St. Ives Bay across to Hayle from the other. St Ives - The jewel in the West Cornwall crown... loved for its superb beaches, narrow streets and flower-filled courtyards, its glittering sea and clear air and for its friendly hospitable people. The beaches of St Ives are its crowning glories. Magnificent Porthmeor Beach on the town's western edge is famous for powerful surf, yet is ideal for non-surfers of all ages. The more sheltered Porthminster Beach on the town's eastern edge has perfect conditions for family groups. Fishing no longer dominates the quays, but boats still fill the harbour and Smeaton's Pier is still the preserve of the town's fishing community. Fish are landed, nets mended and the spirit of Old St Ives is still tangible. The town's colourful heritage is distilled not only in its physical character but in great artistic traditions dating back to the 19th century when accomplished painters revelled in the clear accurate light, luminous colours and the vivid imagery of place and people - an artistic legacy exhibited in the splendid Tate Gallery above Porthmeor. Add to all this a range of excellent restaurants and cafes which cater for all tastes, traditional pubs, entertainment for all ages, a modern cinema and a lively, friendly atmosphere and St. Ives becomes even more of a holiday delight. The September Festival brings a feast of music, literature, theatre and art. Breton markets line the harbour in the Summer and the Square Sail Fleet are often present. Throughout the season enjoy floral displays that have won more National and Regional wins and placings in Britain in Bloom than anywhere else in the UK. In May the St Ives Food and Drink festival takes place and is well worth visiting. Christmas and New Year are really special times and the town comes alive with the famous fancy dress street party on New Years Eve.
Getting around
There is a train station and a bus station located at the Mallacoff which is at the far side of town between the harbour and Porthminster Beach. The train line goes from St Ives to St Erth which then links with the main train line. Buses are available to Penzance (no 16 and 17) or towards Hayle/Camborne and beyond T1 and T2
How to get there
Driving Directions to Ocean Loft On reaching St. Ives drive through into the town centre. On reaching a cross roads turn left between Natwest Bank and the Library. Continue up ‘The Stennack’ past the cinema and the Co-Op until you come to a mini roundabout. At the mini roundabout turn right and drive up Bullans Lane (a steep hill). At the top turn right into Ventnor Terrace. Just past the shops the road bears sharply to the left turn right here and go straight across. You will see a row of houses on your right hand side (Carrack Dhu Estate). At the end of these houses is Ocean Loft (1 Carrack Dhu Estate). Turn right and immediately right again for the garage (underneath the house). Walking Directions from the train station to Oce
