A light and airy, recently upgraded, 3 bedroom, 3 bath / shower room cottage, with parking and garage, garden and balcony, offering beautiful views of St Mawes harbour and Falmouth Bay, located within 180 yards of St Mawes waterfront and central village amenities.
Initial outside impressions do not depict the deceptively spacious accommodation and character features that only by viewing internally can one fully appreciate. A particular feature is the open plan kitchen, dining room and living room with a featured wood-burner, and French doors leading onto a balcony. The delightful views encompass St Mawes harbour, and over the village towards Falmouth Bay, with miles of open sea and the Lizard Peninsula, in the distance.
The lower ground floor has recently undergone a modernisation programme and offers three double bedrooms, two new stylish and contemporary en suite shower rooms as well as a good size bathroom. One of the bedrooms has an external access door giving annexe potential. The en suite master bedroom is spacious, with one window offering beautiful water views, and has French doors opening onto a garden.
A detached garage and parking for two vehicles are a rarity for a high proportion of cottages situated so close to the village centre. Suited towards the second and permanent homebuyer alike, viewing internally is strongly recommended.
