Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A superb period cottage, the well proportioned accommodation includes a living room with wood burning stove, contemporary kitchen, separate porch with utility and two double bedrooms, both en suite. Additional modern comforts include double glazing and central heating. Wonderful south westerly facing sea, village and rural views are enjoyed from the first floor and the two terraced gardens.

Portloe remains one of the last unspoilt Cornish fishing villages on the Roseland Peninsula, with a small working harbour surrounded by National Trust land on a popular stretch of the South West Coastal Path. The cottage is perfectly located a short stroll from the harbour front, and a little further along the coast are the popular beaches of Carne and West Portholland.

The Property 
This beautifully presented terraced cottage is well proportioned with good height ceilings and retains many period features including wood panelled doors, flagstone floor in the kitchen and quarry tiled floor in the hall, tall windows and deep window seats. Sensitively updated, within the last ten years the roof has been re-tiled, new bathrooms installed and LPG gas central heating installed. More recently, the current owners have refurbished the sitting room with new wood burner and wood floors, updated the kitchen and had the chimney replaced. Other improvements include new period style wood framed double glazed sash windows and some double glazing of door panes. The south westerly wall has undergone specialist treatment to protect the house for a generation. The terraced gardens have also been extensively improved and repaved. The cottage would make an ideal second home and we have no doubt could also be a successful holiday letting property, if desired.
