Property Description



This Grade II listed, three bedroom detached house, located in a very special front line, harbourside location, has been exquisitely renovated by the current owner, to an extremely high standard; with incredible attention to detail to preserve this historic building with its many period features combined with a luxurious interior and uninterrupted harbour views.

Reputed to have been built in the 1700\'s as a fish cellar and net loft constructed from ancient timbers belonging to an old ship wreck that washed up on a local beach at Chapel Point.

The property has accommodation laid out over three floors. The kitchen/breakfast/dining room on the ground floor, we are informed was originally the fish cellar, and boasts a stylish electric Aga, set into the old fireplace that was used for smoking pilchards. The breakfast/dining area once housed a pilchard press and during the renovation, the current owner, discovered an old original pilchard oak oil barrel, under the floor, that is now preserved as a feature beneath a bronze finish and glass ships porthole style window with concealed lighting. The pilchard press and oak barrel were originally used to harvest the oil from the pilchards which was then used to run the village street lighting.

The wide, wooden, period planking facade depicts a record believed to date back hundreds of years where the local fisherman, with carvings, recorded into the planks, the ships coming into Mevagissey Harbour, some of the carved sketches depict visually how each sailing ship looked.

The property features a contemporary kitchen with slate worksurfaces, and a generous breakfast/dining area, all with charming harbour views. An antique style spiral staircase leads from the ground floor to the middle floor with entrance hall, lounge and a second sitting room/bedroom three (if required), both with spectacular harbour views. There is also a modern style, luxuriously appointed shower room/cloakroom. The second floor landing leads to the very generously sized master bedroom and the second twin/double bedroom both with phenomenal harbour views as well as a family bathroom again with a very stylish high end suite including a roll top bath positioned to take in the views of the fishing boats and harbour activity, whilst enjoying a long hot soak.

The property has a state of the art infra-red electric heating system, boiler room with the pressurised hot water system and there is a small, private, outside seating area that is ideal to relax whilst enjoying a glass of wine, a good book, and simply taking in the atmosphere of the delightful and historic working harbour.

The property is a much coveted and very successfully rented as a holiday home. If desired and subject to negotiation, the property can be purchased fully furnished and ready to go.

EPC: Exempt.
