A stunning contemporary conversion of a Grade II listed warehouse that combines architectural features with modern design and original artworks
Anchor Warehouse is a beautiful grade II listed building that has been transformed into a luxurious loft style retreat with every conceivable luxury. Located at the head of the Penryn River and enjoying views across the water, this stunning property is perfectly positioned to enjoy the local facilities in Penryn, the beautiful beaches of Falmouth and, of course, the exceptional sailing waters of the Fal Estuary.
Benefitting from 2 reserved parking spaces, the exterior of this harbourside property retains the original charm of the old warehouse fused with a high-quality contemporary interior. A former Bone Mill built in 1843, the warehouse had been derelict for years. The recent renovation has brought this historic building back to life in spectacular fashion, and has resulted in one of the highest quality holiday lets that we have ever seen.
The entrance with video security leads into a large hallway, with engineered oak flooring and under floor heating. The high ceilings and exposed stonework mix perfectly with the retained original features of this unique property. A useful walk in cupboard and separate utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer provide plenty of storage space.
Opening into a large open plan living area, this room really is the heart of the building. 2 huge comfy leather sofa’s, a 50” flat-screen TV with DVD player and a games console ensures everyone is entertained, while Wi-Fi allows you to update your envious friends back home with details of your Cornish adventure. The exposed stone walls include 2 window seats from which to enjoy the waterside views – and maybe even feed the passing swans!
Prominently displayed throughout Anchor Warehouse are many striking original artworks from artists such as Benjamin Warner, Fabian Perez, Sam Walsh, and Lamorna Penrose, each helping to create the ambience of your very own private gallery.
The quality kitchen has granite worktops, plenty of storage, a tall fridge / freezer, double oven and dishwasher, plus every gadget you can imagine from wine cooler and coffee machine to a juicer – everything and more that you could possibly need in a self-catering holiday home. Add in a glass dining table and chairs for 6 and a breakfast bar, and you begin to understand the uniqueness of Anchor Quay.
French doors open onto a pretty waterside cobbled terrace area with pot plants and a café-style table and chairs, the perfect place to enjoy breakfast, an afternoon cocktail, or evening drinks while watching the sun go down over the wharf.
The master bedroom has a window seat looking over the water and its own walk-in dressing room with motion-sensor lighting. The spacious fully tiled en-suite spa bathroom has a heated floor and high-quality contemporary fittings, while the large walk in shower is perfect for washing away the sand from the nearby beaches. Luxurious bedding and towels are provided for guests.
The second bedroom, again with water views, has twin single beds, a window seat, and a large walk-in wardrobe, while the large family bathroom has a walk-in shower, heated floor and towel rails, and ambient lighting.
From the exquisite original pieces of artwork to the state of the art lighting and sound systems, Anchor Warehouse retains the interesting architectural features of the original building elegantly fused with thoughtful contemporary designer furnishings. This really is the perfect choice for discerning guests who want more than the average accommodation provides, and it is sure to make your holiday one to be remembered for many years to come.
