A trio of properties that look out over Cornwall’s iconic St Michael’s Mount are on the market for a combined £1.8m.

The three properties in Marazion look out on the tidal causeway that leads to the famous island, topped with a grand National Trust property and ringed by manicured gardens.

The sale includes an impressive townhouse and two apartments in a separate Grade II listed building, all of which have a different view of the mount. 

St Michael’s Mount is a tidal island in Cornwall’s Mount’s Bay. The site is popular with tourists who can only access the island when the granite causeway emerges at low tide. 

Each property has a spectacular view of the famous island, a former Benedictine monastery that followed the religious order of Mont Saint-Michel and which is twinned with a similar tidal island called Mont-Saint-Michel in Normandy, France. 

The ground floor flat at 1 Rhymnet Villas looks directly at the beach, island and the sea from the living room French doors and terrace and is only a stone’s throw from the water. 

The three properties are all owned by the same person who bought the townhouse first in 1988 and then both apartments when they came on the market.

They total 2,150 sq ft of living space, with Number 2 the larger flat over the first and second floor.

Number 1 has a semi-open plan living room and kitchen and dining room with an entrance hall, bedroom and bathroom.

Nearby Arley House is also being sold alongside the two flats. It is found in a Grade II listed Georgian and Victorian townhouse

The living areas are filled with period features and eclectic, colourful furniture with the bright windows looking out to sea

The house has about 2,500 sq ft of accommodation with an entrance hall, kitchen or dining room, sitting room and drawing room

The period property in Cornwall also comes with four bedrooms and two bathrooms, in addition to the extra accommodation provided by the two flats

Guy Morse, from estate agents Lillicrap Chilcott, said: ‘The owner has lived in this location for well over 20 years’

Number 2 has a large reception room, kitchen/breakfast room, bedroom and bathroom on the first floor with a 40ft long attic room on the second floor currently used as a home office but could be another bedroom.

Arley House is a Grade II listed Georgian and Victorian townhouse filled with period features.

The house has about 2,500 sq ft of accommodation with an entrance hall, kitchen/dining room, sitting room, drawing room, four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The garden has a raised cobbled terrace with views to St Michael’s Mount between the buildings.

Guy Morse, from estate agents Lillicrap Chilcott, said: ‘The owner has lived in this location for well over 20 years. 

‘He bought Arley House originally and when the two apartments became available independently he bought those too.

‘He spent a small fortune making sure everything was perfect. They are unbelievably high quality – he rebuilt the floors and windows so they open out to allow the view to really become part of the room.

The two buildings containing the three properties are only a short distance away from one another in Marazion

Arley House also comes with its own garden on the Cornish coastline filled with trees and flowers that can weather the sea air

The proximity of the property to the iconic Mount, which can only be accessed on foot at low tide, is seen from these images

The flats are located just off the town’s main high street, with the flats located just in front of the townhouse

The flats have been used as a holiday let on occasion while the property owner lives mainly in Arley House, the estate agents said

St Michael’s Mount is a popular spot for tourists who visit Cornwall, with the causeway across only revealed at low tide

‘Those flats are the best place for sundown G&Ts in Cornwall. You have uninterruptable views, looking straight as Michael’s Mount and straight down the causeway with the beach either side and you can see the comings and goings of boats.

‘It’s a really special outlook, it is absolutely dead focused on the Mount, it’s almost like looking at a painting.

‘The owner has always lived in Arley House and used the flats as overflow accommodation when guests want to stay, and as a home office and music room.

‘He has done a little bit of holiday letting just to keep the place ticking over.

‘They would make the most incredible holiday lets, being able to take the photographs saying ‘this is where I’m staying’.

‘You have everything on your doorstep and it’s about a minute’s walk before you’re on the causeway. It couldn’t really be any better.’
