The Property
Park Cottage is a very desirable and classic three bedroom St Marychurch Cottage, slightly extended to provide a decent sized kitchen and upstairs bathroom. Built in 1831, it originally belonged to the Coutts Family and was also once even a marble works. The Artist, George Bedford also lived here as a child, his paintings can still be enjoyed at Torre Abbey. The ground floor oozes character with its twin reception rooms, both rich with original features. Upstairs are two double bedrooms and a single, and that four piece bathroom. It retains sash style windows, with a modern central heating system. The outside space is lovely, an enclosed front area buffers you from the roadside, whilst the south facing rear garden offers you everything from a private courtyard area, and a level lawn. A sun room offers summer space, or perhaps an artist studio - your choice. The area is very popular, with the St Marychurch precinct, and its boutique shops and businesses, just moments away. Bus routes are also nearby, the coastal path at the end of Petitor Road is just a five minute walk.

Entrance Porch
A shallow step up through a wrought iron gateway brings you to a painted door with a leaded and stained glazed panel. This porchway is classic Victorian design with opaque glazed panels and a tiled floor. A further painted door with opaque panels opens into the entrance hall.

Entrance Hall
Coved with a painted dado rail, a single panel radiator with an independent thermostatic controller is also located here. There is an understairs storage nook, and doors to:

Front aspect sash style window, a double panel radiator with an independent thermostatic controller is centred beneath it. This fabulous room retains all of its original features that include painted picture rails, tall skirting boards and a centred ceiling rose. The focal point is an inglenook fireplace with a recessed multi-fuel burner within.

Dining Room
Rear aspect sash style window, slightly recessed with a window seat, a double panel radiator with an independent thermostatic controller is also centred beneath it. This charismatic room features a period marble fire surround, it’s missing a grate but could be recommissioned. The owner has reinstated the side chimney breast cupboards, and for all intent and purposes, looks original. The flooring is a rich coloured parquet floor, probably original. A multi pane window also offers light back into the hall.

Side aspect casement window set and matching doorway opening into a very private courtyard area. This kitchen is classic cottage style with exposed beams. There is a range of fitted base and eye level units with wood effect rolled edge work surfaces and tiled splash backs. The cooker is range style with dual ovens and a five burner gas top. The sink unit is a stainless steel with a one and a half bowl, and a swan neck mixer tap - this area is nicely centred beneath the window for good natural light. There is undercounter space and plumbing for an automatic washing machine, a recess offers space for a stacked fridge freezer set. A ladder style heated towel rail is also fitted here.

First Floor Landing
A split level landing offers access to the bathroom and the three bedrooms. This upper landing offers a study area, or room for a bureau. Access to an insulated loft space.

Bedroom One
Front aspect sash style window, a double panel radiator with an independent thermostatic controller is centred beneath it. This room still retains an original cast fireplace, with porcelain tiling and a mantle over. Either side are built in wardrobes, one single, and one double. There is room still for some significant bedroom furniture.

Bedroom Two
Rear aspect sash style window, a double panel radiator with an independent thermostatic controller is centred beneath it. This is a good size double room with a built in wardrobe and overhead storage.

Bedroom Three
Front aspect sash style window, a single panel radiator with an independent thermostatic controller is centred beneath it. This room is a single of classic box room dimensions.

Side aspect sash style window, with adjacent eyebrow windows to help illuminate the landing. It has very nice proportions with a freestanding ball and claw bath. There is also a shower cubicle with a fully plumbed in shower attachment. A W.C. and pedestal wash hand basin are also fitted. The splash areas are subway tiled in subtle shade ceramics and there’s a Victorian style radiator with an integral towel rail. A built in cupboard offers useful linen storage.


Enclosed area with a wrought iron gate and perimeter. Space here for decorative planters and seating.


Initially opening into a private courtyard area with bench seating space and a recessed, covered log store. Further on is a coal storage shed, block built, with a summer room opposite. That sun room is part block, part uPVC and offers a summer snug or perhaps an artist studio... There’s dining space further up, easily accommodating an outside dining set. The rest of the garden is mostly level lawn, it’s a mix of granite wall, rendered brick or larch fencing. This whole rear area is south facing. A small gardener W.C. is also discretely located in one corner, with a timber potting shed in the opposite corner. There’s an outside water tap too.
