Gorgeous quayside cottage with 4 bedrooms, courtyard garden and a running mooring
Sailmakers Cottage was originally part of a former boat store and many of the original features including exposed stonework and timbers are still evident. The front door opens into a welcoming living room with a large timber beam fire surround housing an electric wood effect stove on a stone hearth. There is a large hatch overlooking the living room from the kitchen which allows the kitchen to also enjoy the wonderful outlook. The kitchen is fitted with a four ring hob and oven, plate rack, wine rack and a good range of units. Also on the ground floor is a utility / cloakroom with WC. The first floor offers 3 bedrooms, an en suite shower room and a family bathroom and stairs continue to rise to the second floor which comprises the master bedroom and further en suite shower room. In total, the property can sleep up to 7 people.
To the front of the cottage is a pretty courtyard garden with low level cottage garden railings allowing superb views of the water. It is easy to maintain and is a delightful sitting out area. In addition is a private running mooring nearby at Custom House Quay, which is shared with two neighbouring cottages (subject to Harbour Authority regulations).
