A picture perfect property

- Fri 17 Jun 2022

We are delighted to bring to the market a property that oozes such history and class in the St Ives area, Trewyn House, the former residence of the famous sculptor John Milne. This prestigious, five-bedroom, mid-Victorian manor house, built in the 1840s with private enclosed grounds is an oasis of calm tucked away in the midst of vibrant St Ives. This impressive imposing residence is a botanical dream of succulents, towering palms and exotic foliage that fringe the lawn, hidden behind tall walling with a private gated entrance, yet only a stone’s throw away from the harbour.

Steeped in culture and well renowned within the arts community in Cornwall, Trewyn House was the former residence of famous sculptor John Milne, best known for his modernist abstract style bronze-work and working alongside his mentor and fellow artist, Barbara Hepworth in their garden studio within the grounds. 

Jon Harvey, Manager of Bradleys St Ives office commented “We are proud to announce Trewyn House to the market, for the first time in 20 years. The property is magnificent, displayed across three floors and five spacious bedrooms. Not forgetting the breath-taking sea views from the balcony that encompasses the entire second floor, looking over Godvery lighthouse, St Ives harbour and Hayle Towans.”

Jon continues “We are so lucky to have such history of not just one, but two renowned artists in St Ives, it is known that John and Barbara worked on their pieces together at Trewyn House, whilst mentoring each other along the way. A quote from Barbara Hepworth about Trewyn House was found stating “Finding Trewyn Studio was sort of magic. Here was a studio, a yard, and garden where I could work in open air and space.”
