Three-bedroom cottage in Cornwall on the market for £800,000 has unbelievable sea view at back07/09/2021
A SWEET Cornish cottage has gone on the market – and there's an amazing secret outside.
While the three-bed terraced home may look fairly standard from the street, its whopping £800,000 price tag suggests there's more on offer than meets the eye.
And those who view the property in historic village Kingsand will find a huge surprise.
The cottage's back garden opens directly onto the sea – with just a small terrace dividing the property from the surf.
The lucky new owner will also find a balcony looking directly out onto the amazing view.
Agents say: "This stunning beach-side cottage is situated on the highly prestigious address of Garrett Street.
"In the heart of the historic smugglers' village, this rare opportunity has arisen to acquire this beachfront residence, coming to the market for the first time in nearly 30 years."
The buyer will walk into their new home through a reception hallway, which leads to a kitchen and dining space overlooked by three bay windows.
And while the home itself is steeped in local history, the new owner will be relieved to find a modern fitted kitchen with a tiled floor and stone worktops.
Upstairs is a sitting room which with views over the sea, as well as two bedrooms facing the street and a third which looks over the ocean.
The master bedroom also features a balcony with "exceptional" views over the water.
And once outside, there's direct access to the beach – as it's in the back garden.
Kingsand, which is in the south-east of the county, is known for a network of tunnels once used by smugglers.
All have now been sealed up.
Just over 500 people live in the picturesque village.
In May, a two-bed home narrower than a London bus went on sale in Padstow, Cornwall.
The adorable property, priced at £430,000, measures just 8ft 2ins at its widest point – meaning it's thinner than a Routemaster, which is 8ft 2.3ins across.
By comparison, an average family home is usually around 22ft wide.
Painted a very cheerful bright blue, the home, used as a holiday let for much of the year, slots neatly between larger properties either side.
The town's slender home may attract a huge amount of interest – but last summer, two even slimmer properties went on the market.
One house on sale in East Dulwich, South London, measured just 8ft 2in wide.
Because of its London location, the home – converted from a derelict workshop – was priced at a whopping £700,000.
At the same time, a narrow house in West London went on sale for £1.9million. Amazingly, the property is even tinier.
It measures just 7ft 9in – but still had space for two bedrooms, two bathrooms and even a mini study thanks to its “meticulous Scandinavian design”.
The Victorian property has windows on three sides and is capped by a giant skylight which allows sunlight to reach the ground floor.
The house’s footprint is roughly triangular, with the front much wider than the rear.
