A four bedroom house situated in a commanding position, literally yards from the sea with some of the best sea and headland views in the South West
The Watch House dating from the late 18th Century was built to house the local excise men to combat the smugglers. It was taken over in the 1820's by the Coastguard Service and has been a private house since 1925. The current owners whilst using the property frequently themselves have marketed the property successfully through Cornish Hideaways achieving occupancy rates of over 40 weeks. Recent investments include a new roof & chimney (2 years ago) and interior and exterior redecoration.
The front door - a newly refurbished traditional barn door - opens into the dual aspect kitchen with wooden fitted units and a terracotta tiled floor. Beyond the kitchen is a spacious dining room with exposed stone wall, traditional panelling and pine floorboards. The fourth bedroom with fitted wardrobe and a family bathroom with bath and shower over, as well as space for a washing machine and dryer, are also located on this floor. Wooden stairs lead up to the large first floor sitting room which is designed to exploit the superb sea views, this room as broad oak floorboards, a wood burner and large bay window overlooking the sea. There is a study area with built in desk and bookshelves. The original front door opens from the room and onto the rugged Watch House land behind. A corridor leads down past the second bathroom to two further bedrooms. The principle bedroom has built-in-wardrobes along one wall with a large corner window and window seat out to spectacular sea views and rocks below. Wooden stairs from the corridor provide access to a further bedroom in the attic as well as to a further storage area with potential to convert into an en-suite bathroom. All rooms at the property look out to sea.
GARDENS & THE EXTERIOR
The Watch House stands within its own plot of approximately 0.3 acres fronted by the sea with the majority of the grounds to the rear. Situated in a commanding position perched high on rocks at the edge of the cove, but protected by its own reef. It is approached from Coverack Harbour by its own lane where there is parking for at least two cars. A path leads through a gate into the front garden which is laid to lawn with 3 distinct seating areas each taking advantage of the quite superb views out across the bay. The stony beachfront is owned by the property giving private access to the sea for a refreshing swim.
