Experience - The Area...
With sea views from every window and just yards from the waters edge at Kingsand, this late 18th century mid-terrace former smugglers cottage overlooks the sand and shingle beach in the heart of the village adjacent to the Clock Tower.
Kingsand and Cawsand have three small beaches with sand and shingle separated by areas of rocks all with lovely views. The South West Coast Path offers splendid scenery around Penlee Point to Rame Head; Mount Edgcumbe Country Park and Antony House are within a short drive and there are several golf courses in the immediate area.
Whitsand Bay, 2 miles,has a long stretch of sand and rocks, and a summer passenger ferry operates from Cawsand Beach across the Sound landing at the Plymouth Barbican. All of the village amenities are within a couple of minutes walk including pubs, cafes and a general store/P.O. The twin village of Cawsand also has a small selection of shops and eateries.
Stay - The Accommodation...
Entered from the narrow street that runs parallel with the seafront and forms part of the coastal footpath, this south facing property with accommodation arranged on 3 floors, is fronted by a wide pavement with space for beach chairs.
Four steps lead up through a unique little porch with Burmese teak shutters salvaged from a ship and an inner front door opens into a central hallway. On one side is a cosy sitting room with a solid bamboo floor and two comfortable sofas facing the multi fuel stove and on the other side is a fitted country kitchen with some natural exposed stonework and a drop leaf dining suite.
Both of the ground floor rooms have windows overlooking the sea and the slipway on to Girt beach. In one corner of the kitchen, a low doorway and steep open-tread stairs lead down to a games room in the cellar with table football, storage space for beach gear, and still retaining some of the original niches when it was occupied by brandy smugglers.
Carpeted stairs lead up from the entrance hall to the first floor where there are a double bedroom with fine views of the sea, a bathroom with vanity basin and shower over the bath, and a separate W.C.with small hand basin. A further staircase continues up to the second floor with a cloakroom W.C. and hand basin and two further bedrooms; a double with a ceiling open to the apex ofthe roof and lovely views of the coast and a single room overlooking the sea and Plymouth Sound.
It is possible to briefly unload outside the property and parking is in the village car park 100 yards away.
