This lovely, extremely comfortable and stylish end of terrace property enjoys amazing sea views of Gerrans Bay. Its terraced rear garden – a plantsman's delight – has relaxing sheltered places to sit. Antigua is close to the coastal path with sandy Porthcurnick Beach in one direction and the shops, galleries, restaurants and pub in Portscatho in the other. Steps lead to the porch of this double-fronted property, with an enclosed terrace for taking in the sea views. The kitchen, complete with Nespresso coffee machine (please bring your own pods), has a farmhouse feel and the period fireplace in the sitting-room adds to its character. The utility-room houses a fabulous American-style fridge/freezer with an ice and water dispenser, which is perfect for keeping cool on those balmy summer days. Four bedrooms, a bathroom and a walk-in shower make this a really flexible property for family or friends.
There is off-road parking for one car and a roadside parking space outside the cottage for a second. At the back of the property there are steps to two patio areas as well as a lawned-area with palm trees and shrubs to set the scene in this lovely part of Cornwall.
