The Property - An exceptional opportunity to purchase this gorgeous and characterful cottage, affording all the charm one would expect from such a property located within this quaint fishing port, and situated in one of Porthlevens highly regarded residential enclaves. This home has been lovingly maintained over the years, been in the same ownership for approximately twenty years, and is in the main washed in a neutral colour scheme, providing the discerning purchaser the opportunity to put their 'stamp' on the property.

Access to this home is via a pretty walled front garden, fully enclosed with a raised flower bed, adjacent to which is the path bringing you to the front door, in turn opening into the entrance hallway. From the entrance hallway you enter the lounge/dining room which is surprisingly spacious with staircase ascending to the first floor and access to the kitchen.

Off the back of the kitchen is the shower room, fully tiled and was refurbished in 2012. To the first floor are bedrooms one and two which offer a bright ambiance as they are flooded with natural light from the two sets of windows to the front and rear aspects respectively.

A huge plus to this home is the rear garden, an attractive area which is bordered by fencing, some of which has been recently erected and is in the main laid to lawn, providing a good space for sitting out during the temperate summer months. Access to the rear garden is via the kitchen or via the right of way across number 7 Unity Roads courtyard, (please see agents note two) from here steps ascend to this raised outdoor space.

This super home is a real 'gem' and would suit a wide range of potential purchasers such as first time buyers, retirement and investors, all wishing to invest in this popular area.

Location - Porthleven is a thriving and hugely popular fishing port with a distinctive harbour which is now a designated listed monument. An exciting, and eclectic mix of galleries, superb restaurants, pubs, shops, fishmongers to name a few, trade throughout the year enhancing this exciting all year round destination. The granite harbour walls have been designed with an inner and outer harbour, which provide a sheltered sanctuary for day fishing boats. Porthleven's iconic clock tower overlooks the outer harbour wall, and stands alongside its local beach with the magnificent Loe Pool stretching to the east. Loe Pool is Cornwall's largest natural lake which is surrounded by gorgeous National Trust land, which enjoys some of the finest coastal walks the UK has to offer.
