An opportunity to acquire one of the most iconic buildings in the centre of Mousehole believed to date back to the 1500s having great charm and character throughout, Keigwin is a grade II* listed property with spacious versatile accommodation over two floors and substantial walled garden all within a short stroll of the harbour.

The property could be used in a variety of ways and really needs to be viewed internally to appreciate to the full. Keigwin is one of the few houses to survive the 1595 Spanish raid when most of Mousehole was burnt as a reprisal for the Armada. Keigwin Place is one of the most photographed areas in the village, The property has an impressive and distinctive entrance with large flagstones and an impressive Jacobean room over. A particularly attractive feature are the walled gardens which are accessed from Wesley Square which are laid to lawn with well stocked flower borders and exotic plants, offering a good degree of privacy. The property is so central and is within a short walk of most amenities, due to the popularity of properties within the village we would highly recommend an early appointment.
