This charming converted Net Loft nestles in the centre of the picturesque fishing village of Mousehole, one of Cornwall's hidden gems, famous for its Christmas lights, with views from the harbour across Mount's Bay to St Michael's Mount.
Conveniently located in its heart this once modest net loft situated above the old village bark house (where nets were treated), has been transformed into an enchanting holiday home.
The property itself is set over two floors and is accessed via granite steps leading to the first floor level.
The interior design cleverly reflects the centuries old tradition of life bound up with the sea and has immense appeal.
Comfortably furnished and well equipped, open beams and exposed granite walls add to its character.
There are three stylish bedrooms and a pristine family bathroom on the ground floor.
Upstairs is the versatile open plan living room with a kitchen and dining area featuring a lofty ceiling with exposed beams and velux windows to make it extremely light and airy.
Reversed style accommodation affords a view of the harbour and Mousehole Island.
Although there is no garden, the harbour is only a few steps away where you can sit back and enjoy the colourful scene.
The village fishing heritage dates back to 1266 and the tightly knitted streets and lanes are full of local Lamorna granite built cottages.
Perfect for a stroll to a host of pubs and restaurants, collect some provisions from the excellent delicatessen, or use the property as a base for touring Cornwall with beaches and sheltered coves, some fantastic walking as well as attractions which include Lands End, Flambards Theme Park, numerous National Trust properties and Gardens and the Minack Theatre at Porthcurno.
