Situation and Description
“The Lobster Pot” is one of the iconic Grade II Listed waterfront buildings in Mousehole, situated in a prime position overlooking the harbour, with spectacular views across Mounts Bay to St Michaels Mount and the Lizard peninsula beyond.
The first floor apartment, “Harbour’s Reach”, was converted from the original eighteenth century building by a local architect and upgraded by the present owner into a luxuriously appointed holiday home, which could be equally suitable as a main home. Features of the property include double glazing, oak floors and doors, vaulted ceilings and high quality kitchen and bathrooms. There is an oil fired heating system and also underfloor heating.
Mousehole has a variety of shops, post office, the harbourside ‘Ship Inn’ and the Old Coastguard hotel and restaurant. There is a regular bus service to Newlyn and Penzance.
West Cornwall is renowned for its spectacular coastline and National Trust footpaths, with many sandy beaches and coves. Attractions in the area include St Michael’s Mount, the Tate at St Ives and the clifftop Minack Theatre at Porthcurno.
