Timber shutters frame sea views across Mount’s Bay at this fisherman’s cottage in the Cornish village of Mousehole.
The three-storey structure has been gently renovated in a minimalist style, with whitewashed walls and ceilings and slate floors running underfoot across the open ground floor space. A large wood-burning stove takes central stage, offering a cosy spot to drink in the scenic sea views throughout the seasons.
Saltponds is for sale via The Modern House for £685,000. It doubles as a holiday let offering potential rental revenue for its future owner, as the village of Mousehole is a popular spot.
One bedroom can be found on the first floor, complete with an original stone fireplace and hand-made cabinetry. A second bedroom or study is on the upper floor and is finished with stone walls, a sloping ceiling and pine floorboards.
Though on the more compact end of the scale, the Cornish property is packed with charm and is minutes walk from the beach and centre of the village, with its independent shops and cafes. It also has a landscaped garden with views across the water – an idyllic spot to read the morning newspaper over coffee.
