Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Cherub is part of 78 Fore Street which is a substantial three story grade 2 listed terraced property arranged as two separate 2 bedroom cottages. The property has undergone considerable renovation and up-grading over the past 15 years and was converted into the 2 units by the present owners. All planning and listed building consents were granted and the conversion has been sympathetic to the era of the property and has retained the wealth of characterful and charming period features throughout.

The property is thought to date back to the 17th century and has had many uses in the past. We understand, that the property in slightly more recent times was used as a fish shop!!

Cherub has accommodation arranged over three floors and benefits from gas central heating and has been designed with holiday use in mind and has been let very successfully through the busy season. However, the cottage could equally be used as a permanent residence. The property is available to purchase fully equipped and furnished if required as a going concern by separate negotiation.

The accommodation is primarily located on the first and second floors. However, the entrance is at ground floor level which leads into a spacious hallway with a tiled floor and has a useful under stairs cupboard which has plumbing for an automatic washing machine. On the first floor there is a 13' master bedroom arranged as a double room and having its own en suite shower room/w.c. Stairs lead up to the second floor landing which gives access to the remaining rooms within the cottage.

There is a superb 15' x 11' lounge which has a tiled fireplace and hearth and a useful store cupboard. The 15' kitchen is fitted with a range of base and wall units and includes an integrated over, hob and extractor. There is a useful niche within the kitchen which houses the gas fired boiler for the central heating and hot water and has a worktop with space for an under counter fridge.

At the rear of the property there is a further twin bedroom with a built-in wardrobe and a family bathroom/w.c. which comprises a white suite including a panelled bath with shower attachment and shower screen over, hand basin with vanity light and shaver socket over and a low level w.c.

The property is located just minutes walk from the picturesque harbour and working fish quay and is a short stroll along quay road to Damien Hirst's "Verity" statue. Within the immediate area are a variety of public houses and restaurants and the town's beaches including the famous Tunnels Beach with its children's indoor play area are also just a short distance away.

We fully advise an early internal inspection of this delightful characterful home.
Applicants are advised to proceed from our offices in a westerly direction along the high street for approximately 400 yards bearing off to the left into Fore Street. Continue down the hill and through the 'Access Only' signs and Cherub, number 78 will be found more or less at the bottom of the road on the left hand side.
