Cornish Coastal Escape

Enjoying a spectacular position above Mylor Creek near Falmouth in Cornwall, this four-bedroom, slate-hung cottage has been transformed to work for family life and make the most of the ever-changing waterside views.

Architect: CSA Architects

Contractor: Richards Builders

Project length: 2 years

Size: 2,000sqft

Working collaboratively with our client’s architects, the project involved substantial groundwork to extend the property, create a spacious outside dining terrace, improve access to the creek, and design a new boatshed that acts as a home office. The house was originally built in the 1980s with a configuration of separate rooms on the ground floor. One of our most important aims was to rationalise the floorplan and remove many of the divisions to result in a light and airy open-plan living area constantly connected to what is arguably among the finest sailing waters in the country.
