Situation - 1 Coastguard Cottages is set in an elevated position above the harbour commanding breathtaking sea and coastal views.
Charlestown is renowned for its Georgian Harbour built by local landowner Charles Rashleigh and is today home to a number of tall ships that moor there. Within the village are inns, restaurants and of course the Southwest Coastpath which can be accessed directly from the garden.
There are a number of local beaches around St. Austell Bay whilst at Carlyon Bay there is a cliff-top 18-hole golf course. Slightly further afield are picturesque coves at harbour villages together with the captivating scenery of the Roseland Peninsula. For sailing enthusiasts there are clubs at Porthpean, Pentewan and Fowey.
1 Coastguard Cottages is also ideally positioned to access other notable local attractions including the world renowned Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan. Both St. Austell and Truro have mainline rail connections to London Paddington whilst on the north coast is Newquay Airport with a number of scheduled flights to both domestic and international destinations.

The Property - Commanding incredible panoramic views over the harbour, beach, coastline and miles of open sea, 1 Coastguard Cottages stands in a truly enviable position.
Boasting handsome exposed stone and granite elevations with sections of rendering, this attractive end cottage is one of a terrace of former Coastguard Cottages and offers well-presented and comfortable accommodation. Several significant improvements have been completed in the last 18 months including the replacement of the roof, render, boiler and ground floor shower. Facing approximately east, there are two separate reception rooms with the sitting room featuring a wood burning stove. Both the well-appointed kitchen and dining room enjoy splendid views whilst the ground floor master bedroom has an en-suite shower room.
Two separate staircases lead to the first floor with the main landing being approached from the sitting room and providing access to bedroom 2 which enjoys glorious views, a further bedroom and the family bathroom. A second open-tread staircase rises from the dining room to a room that is currently in use as a bedroom with a window in the gable end having sea views.
The property is currently a successful holiday let and is run in conjunction with the adjacent cottage, number 3, which is also for sale. Available separately or as a whole, both cottages are ideal second homes or holiday let investments.

Outside - Approached over Coastguard Lane, the parking is at the opposite end of the terrace where there is a dedicated space. There is a pathway leading along the rear of the terrace to the property and its outside store.
The garden of number 1 is one the largest of the Coastguard Cottages and extends to the front, side and rear with a gated access directly onto the coastal footpath and magnificent views from almost every spot. To the side is a large stone paved sun terrace which is ideal for entertaining whilst across the front is a brick paved terrace.
