Enchanting coastal Cornish cottage for sale

Cove Cottage is a truly idyllic coastal cottage in Cornwall which dates back to the mid-1800s. The property is set in a wonderful elevated position above Priest’s Cove at Cape Cornwall on the western coast.

The cottage has been extended and refurbished by the present owners, who also added a sun room to take further advantage of the outstanding sea and coastal views. Adjacent to this is a raised stone patio overlooking the sea – the house is one of just a handful in this position and most are in the ownership of the National Trust.

The accommodation comprises entrance porch, kitchen, sitting/dining room, sun room, rear hall, shower room and a utility room with three bedrooms and a further bathroom upstairs.

Outside are around 1.8 acres of gardens and a paddock including an outbuilding with planning permission for demolition and reconstruction as a workshop or studio – perfect for artists or writers. Much of the gardens have been left largely as wild grassy meadow hosting a wide variety of wild flowers including buttercups, bluebells, campion and many others. There is parking for two cars and a National Trust car park at the top of the hill.
