The only residence overlooking the Drift Reservoir, Nevada is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near Mousehole and Penzance on the south facing shores of Mounts Bay in Cornwall.

Luxury self-catering home near Penzance, Cornwall

Introduction

Sprawling over three spacious floors, this luxury retreat is the ultimate scenic lookout; where the sublime panoramic views are exclusively yours. Spend mornings through to evenings in content marooned bliss with only calls of the reservoir wildlife to disturb. Chameleon copper clads the angular external walls of the upper level, whilst below, traditional Cornish stone retains the history of this unique waterside home near Penzance in Cornwall. Encased in a wraparound deck and glinting in the reservoir’s reflecting light, this luxury self-catering home mirrors the style of a Californian lakehouse, where 1960's minimalist style blissfully marries with latest eco-technology comforts.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Perfect for families, this waterside haven flaunts three zip-and-link bedrooms; all of which can be arranged as twins or super-kings to make multi-generational escapes a breeze. The lower deck comprises two bedrooms (the master with en suite shower and dressing area) each boasting private sun decks inviting guests outside to indulge in undisturbed views of the reservoir. The middle deck features the third bedroom and family bathroom complete with large shower enclosure and double-ended egg-shaped bath.

Outside

Outside, landscaped lawns enclose Nevada and seamlessly spill into the reservoir below. The secret garden gate opens out onto the waterside pathway where couples can enjoy romantic moonlit walks. Fisherfolk can hire a boat and enjoy the clear waters of the Drift Reservoir stocked with Rainbow and Blue Trout. Twitchers will be spoilt for choice, spotting herons, swans, geese and resident Muscovy duck enjoying the lake all from the vantage point of the private south-west deck. 

For Relaxation

With the reservoir as the backdrop and sunsets melting into the waters below, Nevada is an idyllically positioned haven perfect for those wanting to experience ultimate relaxation. If you can tear yourself away from your luxury island, explore Cornwall's charming west coast by moseying around the quintessential harbour town of Mousehole, diving into the Art Deco pool at Penzance or exploring the landmark of St Michael's Mount.  

Practicalities

The driveway provides parking for up to four cars. There is a washer/dryer, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Please visit the fisherman’s timber hut for a permit should you wish to use the reservoir pathway, or fish. Please note, no dogs are permitted on the reservoir pathway.

Nevada is all about the view and location, the whole place is full of light reflected off the reservoir, level with the birds like you are staying in a tree house, slide open the doors and walk onto the wooden terrace and the most amazing panoramic view hits you, like your own private lake...
