In Cawsand with great ‘right out to sea’ views, the first two floors of a Grade II listed, 18th cent. cottage snuggling in with its neighbouring cottages. It has been completely renovated, exposing its fascinating history - no humble fisherman’s cottage this. Some say smuggling helped pay for its fine panelling, coving and English Delft-ware tiles. Five steps up from lane to rear courtyard (table/chairs). On the ground floor, dining room (TV/DVD, iPod dock) with view out to sea; flagstoned hall; kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker); back porch with washing machine, tumble drier; double bedroom with sea views; shower-room (suite, large shower tray) and back door to courtyard. The staircase has original Chinoiserie panels and leads to living room with handsome ornamental fireplace, TV/DVD and stunning ship-watching view, and two more bedrooms - a double (5' bed) with more great views, and one with two singles; a few more stairs up to bathroom (suite with roll-top bath and separate shower). A few low lintels. Loading/unloading outside only; public car park, 200 yards. Attic flat (separate access) occasionally used by the owner. Sleeps maximum of 6 and 1 baby. A delightful cottage.
