This classic Grade II listed two bedroom cottage is positioned right on the quay

8 Strand Street is a classic Grade II listed two bedroom cottage, recently refurbished and in excellent order throughout uniquely positioned in the very heart of the historic working fishing village of Padstow right on the quay - you literally couldn’t get any closer to the harbour if you tried! With the accommodation currently set over two floors, decorated in neutral colours, flooded with natural light and with views over the harbour, there is even the opportunity to convert the attic space into a third bedroom given the stairs and window are already in place. Currently holiday let, 8 Strand Street would make the perfect holiday home or investment for someone looking for that harbourside Cornish cottage

From Strand Street, enter through the stable style front door with partial glazing straight into the kitchen/dining room. This is fitted with a comprehensive range of floor and wall units and integrated with a Hygena electric oven, 4 ring electric hob with extractor hood over and built in dishwasher and washing machine. There is ample space for a tall fridge/freezer and the all important dining table and chairs. There are even beams to the ceiling to remind you of the age of this property.

Glazed French doors then lead through to the living room with a window overlooking the rear aspect from where to enjoy wonderful views across the harbour and witness the daily hustle and bustle of this vibrant working village. There are again beams to the ceiling and a lovely feature exposed Cornish stone wall with a recess for an electric wood burning stove with an attractive timber lintel above. There is a useful and substantial understairs storage cupboard while the stairs rise to the first floor.

Up here are the two bedrooms and shower room. The first bedroom, a good size double, is filled with natural light and enjoys unrestricted views across the harbour and rooftops beyond. The second bedroom is again a comfortable double and extremely light with a window to the front aspect. The fully tiled shower room is fitted with a white suite that includes a glass shower enclosure and electric shower, a pedestal wash hand basin and low level wc. From the landing, a door then paddle staircase gives access up to the attic room. Currently used for storage, there is a window to the rear aspect offering great views to the harbor and beyond as well as a Velux window to the side, exposed roof beams and a cupboard housing the hot water tank. There is clearly a great opportunity here to create additional accommodation, subject to obtaining the necessary permissions. 8 Strand Street is subject to a 999 year lease which begun in 1999. Services to the property include mains water, electricity and drainage.

The historic and picturesque fishing town of Padstow is located on the North Coast of Cornwall and offers an extensive range of cafes, public houses and restaurants, none more so than Paul Ainsworth’s Michelin starred No.6 and of course Rick Steins esteemed Seafood restaurant. An area of outstanding natural beauty, there are several sandy beaches within 2 to 4 miles as well as the championship golf course at Trevose. The town also has a supermarket and excellent Primary School. For more extensive shopping facilities, the thriving market town of Wadebridge is just 7 miles distant and offers a fine selection of shops and amenities including a sports centre, cinema, a primary and secondary school and a selection of supermarkets. The nearest mainline station is Bodmin Parkway which is approximately 20 miles distant with the nearest airport at Newquay approximately 14 miles away.

To find 8 Strand Street, head towards Padstow on the A389. As you approach Padstow, turn right at signs for the town centre and follow the road down the hill. As the road bears right, go straight on and follow New Street down the hill towards the town. Pass St Petrocs Bistro on the left and Strand Street can be found tucked away on the right hand side. Please note that New Street is just one way and therefore it would be advisable to park in one of the nearby public carparks before proceeding to the property on foot. The postcode for satellite navigation is PL28 8BU.
