Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Extensively refurbished by the present owners to an exceptional standard, with a small walled garden to the front and a private courtyard to the rear.

2 Vine Cottages is located in the oldest part of Newlyn, in Boase Street, one of the very narrow side streets leading away from Newlyn harbour. Local shops are within a few hundred yards, whilst Penzance, the largest town in West Cornwall, is approximately a mile away and has a wide range of shops and other amenities. Penzance also has a bus terminal, mainline railway station and art deco seawater swimming pool, situated on the seafront. West Penwith is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty and local landmarks include St Michaels Mount, the Tate at St Ives and the clifftop Minack Theatre at Porthcurno.

2 Vine Cottages is a beautifully renovated Grade II Listed period cottage, once a fisherman's cottage and sail loft, understood to date at least from the seventeenth century. The property has been extensively rebuilt by the present owners and the restoration has used traditional methods wherever possible.
