Amazing tropical mansion with steps straight to the beach could be yours for £2million – and you won't have to go far

AN idyllic seaside mansion atop a white sand beach is for sale – and it's not as far away as you might think.

While the impressive views of the stunning water may conjure up images of the Caribbean, the gorgeous £2million, six-bedroom home is in fact in Cornwall.

And the impressive home on the South West coast, which was once home to world-renowned artist John Miller, is now up for sale.

The former artist’s home can be found only a few miles from St Ives in Cornwall, just above Porthkidney Beach.

The property includes a four-bedroom home adjacent to a two-bedroom Beach House, used as an art studio by John Miller.

Dramatic views from the property stretch over Hayle Estuary and Godrevy Lighthouse and served as the inspiration for many of John Miller's iconic Cornish landscapes.

A large sun terrace borders the property, alongside a boat house and an outdoor seating area where its owners can enjoy the vast sea views.

They'll also be able to reap the benefits of the West Cornwall Golf Course just minutes away, the nearby village of Lelant and the coveted Cornish countryside.

Jack Greenwood, from Lillicrap Chilcott, said "The views at Ferryman's Rest are exceptional and the position is just mesmerising.

"The sand is like nothing else I have seen before. If someone said it was in the Caribbean, you would believe it.

"It's by far the best location in Cornwall I have been to, it really is magical.

"The area does have its own microclimate and the light in St Ives is unique, which is why it is so popular with artists.

"I know a lot of John Miller's artwork and when you arrive at this property you can instantly picture it and see exactly where he painted."

The listing notes that potential buyers can pursue planning permission to add an additional beach-facing chalet to the already idyllic home.

The property is being sold by Lillicrap Chilcott, who recently put Trewithian Cove House on the market for £2.5 million, an impressive Cornish clifftop mansion.

Cornwall is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a popular destination for people from all over, with property in high demand.
