Description

Gulls Perch is a charming end of terrace quintessential fisherman’s cottage. Believed to date back to circa 1795, Gulls Perch is thought to have originally been two cottages highlighted by the presence of the two feature inglenook fireplaces. Sympathetically updated in recent years, this light and airy home has many interesting old character features such as panel doors, beamed ceilings, and granite inglenook fireplaces with clome ovens which blend with elegant modern comforts including double-glazed wooden sash windows, composite stable-style external doors and tiled floors in the living room and modern shaker style kitchen / dining room. This property is pleasantly located in a conservation area in what is often considered one of the most unspoilt villages in Cornwall. Externally, the part lime washed and exposed stone walls naturally blend on to the front south facing sun terrace.

The Views

With a southerly aspect and elevated position, the main bedroom and outside sun terrace provide sea views over towards Portloe Harbour. From the upper garden terrace, the views are arguably the best in Portloe, providing glorious 180 degree sea and countryside views over the Harbour and the unspoiled National Trust owned Jacka Point and beyond.

Gulls Perch

Upon entering through the composite stable-style front door into the kitchen, one will be initially impressed with the kitchen which features open beams and stone inglenook fireplace with granite lintel and clome oven. The shaker style kitchen has been carefully laid out with ample storage, integrated appliances and space for a dining table. The living room is generous yet cosy, again with a feature stone inglenook fireplace with inset log burner, beamed ceiling and large understairs cupboard. A door leads to the utility room which has ample space for a tumble drier, as well as a large storage cupboard. With composite stable-style external door, the utility room provides the perfect place to store wet and sandy shoes and coats, as well as to dry off wet dogs and children! A staircase rises from the living room to the first floor landing, with doors to the two double bedrooms and family shower room. The main bedroom is a generous size, easily housing a king sized bed, and has a delightful picture window with views over Portloe harbour. The second bedroom is a light and bright double, with beautifully finished exposed floorboards. The family shower room features a rainforest-style shower, and has a contemporary finish.

Continued...

The South facing large sun terrace has been designed to maximise the wonderful vista, ideal for sun-bathing, relaxing and alfresco dining. The elevated rear garden is a major attraction of the cottage; terraced and landscaped for ease of maintenance and privacy. It offers the green-fingered buyer a myriad of opportunities to create their own haven, with ample space for fruit and vegetable growing, laying to lawn, or creating a unique seaside garden. Subject to any necessary planning consents, there is the potential to add a log cabin or similar to provide further accommodation or simply as a home office or peaceful hobbies space. Gulls Perch has the added rarity of two parking spaces, located just behind The Ship Inn pub, held on a 999 year lease. The property is currently being used as an exceptionally successful year-round holiday let, with over 160 5* reviews on AirBnB and booking.com.

Summary
