The Roseland Peninsula is locally known as the “jewel in Cornwall’s crown”. Well maintained and presented with some period details including beamed ceilings and inglenook fireplace, this deceptively spacious cottage offers light and airy family sized accommodation. The dual aspect Sitting Room has a featured stone fireplace with log burner inset. The downstairs cloakroom and upstairs shower room have both recently been stylishly updated. There are glimpses of the beautiful coastline from many of the rooms, but, in particular, the second bedroom has a wide double glazed picture window, which offers spectacular views over the village, rugged coastline and onwards over miles of open sea.
Outside there is a pretty and private sun patio area whilst a further paved area enjoys some of the beautiful sea, village and surrounding countryside views. It is believed Ivy Cottage dates back to around 1847, originally built as a row of three before being converted into the two more spacious semi detached cottages as seen today. The sitting room and two of the bedrooms plus shower room above form a newer part of the cottage added in more recent years.
For the keen rambler or birdwatcher, this rare opportunity is located around 130 yards from the South West Coastal Path. For the watersports enthusiast, the harbour and slipway (around circa 350 yards from the cottage) provides easy access for kyacks, paddleboards, canoes etc whilst the local public house with its beer garden is a stroll along the picturesque quintessentially Cornish village road. Ivy cottage is located adjacent to the village public car park, where our client also owns a single garage, which is available by separate negotiation.
In summary, this delightfully spacious cottage will appeal to the buyer yearning for a quality lifestyle in a quaint and quintessentially Cornish coastal village, either as a permanent or a holiday retreat with the potential of lucrative holiday letting income.
