Wooden shutters frame the sea view across Mount’s Bay at this fisherman’s house in the Cornish village of Mousehole.
The three-story structure has been gently renovated in a minimalist style, with whitewashed walls and ceilings and slate floors running underfoot through the open space on the ground floor. A large wood-burning stove takes center stage, providing a cozy place to drink in the panoramic sea views through the seasons.
Saltponds is for sale via The Modern House for Â£ 685,000. It also serves as a vacation rental with potential rental income for its future owner, as the village of Mousehole is such a popular location.
One bedroom is on the first floor, with an original stone fireplace and handcrafted wardrobes. A second bedroom or office is on the upper floor and is finished with stone walls, a sloping ceiling and pine planks.
Although located at the more compact end of the scale, the Cornish property is full of charm and is within walking distance of the beach and the village center, with its independent shops and cafes. It also has a landscaped garden with a view of the water – an idyllic place to read the morning paper over coffee.
