Believed to have been built around the early 1700's, this Grade II listed cottage, we are informed was originally a fisherman's home and is believed to have once been used for smuggling. Located within a stones throw of the harbour it is conveniently situated in the centre of the village with shops, restaurants and facilities close by. We are informed that the cottage has been in the same family ownership for approaching 75 years.
The cottage has recently been redecorated and would make a good holiday home lock up and leave or an investment property to rent out.
It consists of a lounge/kitchen area, ground floor cloak room/wet room plus a staircase that opens to the first floor generous double bedroom. No chain. Please note, that like a lot of the cottages in the village, there is a flying freehold.
