The large sitting room with bay window seat and Georgian marble fireplace at Myrtle House Penzance

The Sitting Room


A large formal sitting room runs the length of the first floor with a window seat in the large bay piled with cushions - its the perfect spot for reading or simply enjoying the views over the gorgeous sub tropical Morrab Gardens and out to Newlyn and the sea. Furnished with a large sofa, comfortable arm chairs - including a 300-year old decorative armchair with a foot stall - and a luxurious cashmere rug. The room boasts a working Georgian marble fireplace topped with an 18th Century French mirror and evocative art by artist Amanda Slade. There is a writing desk for those who feel inspired and a dresser full of DVDs and music, including a collection of classic movies and traditional games. The room also features a flat screen television set with BT Broadband Freeview, DVD player and bluetooth player. This is the only working fireplace in the house, all the rest are purely decorative, so its the place for a comfy evening in front of a roaring fire - relax and enjoy!
