About Coastguard Cottage
This row of historical buildings was built in 1874 and has a commanding view out over the harbour entrance. Forward thinking for its time, with a 'cavity wall build system' introduced from Europe and championed by Prince Albert himself.
This end of terrace cottage is immaculate throughout and has stripped floorboards throughout the upstairs and living areas with stylish modern vinyl flooring continuing through the kitchen and shower room. Period fireplaces in both reception rooms and the main bedroom reflect its history and make characterful features. There are modern tweaks within the sitting room with a feature stair glass panel. The kitchen, as with the rest of the house, is bright and fresh with light wood worksurfaces and white wall and base units. There are spaces for a freestanding fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher.
This delightful cottage has two large storage cupboards downstairs and a rear door to the easy to maintain garden.
The property has been a successful holiday let but would also be a fantastic home.
