Threading together old and new, St Ives is a beautiful conversation between the nostalgia of the yesteryear and the refinement of today. Its creators have given new life to the Queen Anne style heritage mansion carving out two extraordinary and grandly proportioned homes.
Deep white-washed verandahs maximise the spectacular outlooks, especially from the sensational upper storey Harbour Residence, while wonderfully generous landscaping adds another layer of bespoke detail to the Garden Residence below.
St Ives' romantic gabled slate roof, decorative fretwork, sweeping bay windows and Art Nouveau tiles have been meticulously retained and restored. Fine period detail such as dramatic timber-beam ceilings and exquisite leadlight windows are overlaid with a subtle contemporary sensibility.
Substantial kitchen rooms with their resplendent stone walls, expansive slab stone counters and traditional fireclay Belfast sink are state-of-the-art while the character-infused bathrooms and ensuites pay tribute to the luxury and largesse of times past.
