RENOVATED, COASTGUARD COTTAGE, set in the heart of the village MINUTES FROM THE BEACH & AMENITIES with impressive SEA, HEADLAND & RURAL VIEWS enjoyed from this elevated vantage point in one of THE MOST SOUGHT-AFTER VILLAGES ON THE SOUTH COAST.




This Victorian mid-terraced coastguard cottage dates back to the mid 1800's and although modernised it still has the feel of a coastal cottage and has retained lots of traditional features.

The property boasts a fantastic ground floor living space with French doors to maximise the sea views on offer. The front bedrooms also offer superb views of the harbour.

The current owners have undertaken a significant amount of work and replaced many items, making it the perfect home for anyone looking for a property for immediate occupation. Works include new stable door, window, bespoke shutters and blinds, new white goods, carpets, fencing, lighting, towel rails, tiling, fitted cupboard, re-rendered chimney bell cast, new guttering/fascia boards, new roofs on porch and outbuilding, new shed, various plants, trees and hedging. These are to name a few!

The ground floor accommodation in brief comprises of an entrance porch, handy downstairs cloakroom and superb open-plan ground floor incorporating the kitchen/dining area & living area. The kitchen is modern with shaker style units and the lounge area has the original wooden floor and alcove cupboards.

Stairs from the hallway rise to the first floor where you will find the modern newly fitted bathroom and 3 bedrooms, with the front bedrooms enjoying the sea and quay views.


The property has a pretty terraced garden to the front with paved seating area to soak in the sun and the fantastic views on offer. The property also benefits from a generous rear garden with restored stone outbuilding to the back and storage shed, established borders, hedging and flowers. The vendor has also recently planted a Cordyline palm and Monterey cypress trees to front and apple and pear trees, and Photina hedging to the rear.


This cottage is situated in the highly regarded coastal village of Gorran Haven renowned for its beach, coastal walks & pretty fishermen's cottages, nestled around a secluded cove. It is accessed off a quiet road with very little traffic. There is ample parking in the centre of the village.
