In its current layout there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor of the main building and another in the ground floor self contained flat. The hall is dominated by an impressively wide and elegant staircase and the 12’ high ceilings add to the grandeur of the accommodation. Enclosed on three sides by shallow gardens which have low walls and high railings, and further enhanced by an integral garage and a south facing wrought iron balcony with views across the bay to The Lizard Point. Words cannot adequately describe this fascinating and unique property so we strongly recommend that serious interested parties make contact and arrange to view inside.
