In Cawsand, a stone’s throw from the beach, a 17th cent., Grade II listed cottage over two floors, its interesting past hinted at by the smugglers’ tunnel cleverly disguised in an under-stair cupboard.
Once also the village sweet shop, it nestles alongside sister cottages on a narrow lane behind the square with just occasional vehicles passing.
Just right for a couple or small family.
Inside, good-sized rooms, original beams and some low lintels.
From the lane, 3 steps up to tiled lobby and bathroom; stable doors and step up to living/dining room with wood burning stove, and a smart cottage-style kitchen with slate floor and granite worktops; rear hall (space for beach gear/walking boots/children’s board games) and shower-room.
Steep narrow stairs with 5’2” beam and, rope rail wind up to the first floor landing where a smuggler’s tunnel cupboard and door to garden can be found and two bedrooms – a king-size double , and a twin.
Behind, sheltered by a high wall and with a peek of the sea between rooftops, an enclosed suntrap paved terrace with decked area, table and chairs.
A welcoming cottage in a friendly seaside village just 50 yards from pub and shop.
Two bedrooms: 1 x King-size double, 1 x Twin. Ground floor bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Kitchen. Sitting room with dining area.
