This chic, traditional yet beautifully modern two bedroom cottage exhibits exquisitely restored stylish accommodation

Behind an attractive granite façade, in the very heart of the sleepy and historic market town of St Columb sits Pocket Cottage, an exquisitely restored two bedroom cottage with a chic, traditional yet uniquely modern edge.

The exposed beams and stone walls add to the wonderful character of this former barn, alongside noteworthy features such as the heritage style double glazed windows, traditional column radiators, exposed wood flooring and natural stone flooring. Of further mention are the driftwood mantelpiece over the feature fireplace, the recessed shelving and the highly unique natural stone sink in the shower room. The living space is open plan with a step up into the cosy kitchen, complete with a range of modern cabinets and drawers, wood block worktop, ceramic sink, ceramic hob and electric oven. Up on the first floor, the quality of renovation continues as you step into the bespoke shower room with traditional fittings and individual style. The two bedrooms are superbly presented and neutral in palette, one a double and one a single.

This characterful abode comes with a private, off-road parking space, a well stocked flower and shrub bed and a small gravelled area which is perfect for relaxing or outdoor dining. Currently a high caliber holiday let, Pocket Cottage would equally serve as a low maintenance second home or indeed main residence. Services to the property include mains water, electricity, gas and drainage.

Please note that the neighbouring cottages have a pedestrian right of way across the front of Pocket Cottage.
