Established in the very heart of the picturesque fishing village of Port Isaac just a stone's throw from the slipway is Henry's, a magnificently unique and stylishly converted 18th Century Grade II listed property beautifully restored and refurbished by the current vendors. The property still retains many of its original characterful features including beamed ceilings, exposed wood floors and sliding sash windows - decorated and furnished with a huge amount of style and flair. Offering uniquely styled three bedroom accommodation, Henry's is a perfect home for those seeking a lavish retreat within this significant coastal village or an excellent investment opportunity.
The freehold purchase of Henry's incorporates the commercial premises below, currently leased to a successful local business. With a good size selling area, large display windows and store rooms in the basement, this offers a superb opportunity to secure a prominent commercial location on Port Isaac's Fore Street with an established rental income.
From Fore Street, steps lead up to a stable door that opens into the unconventionally shaped yet inviting kitchen/dining room with sliding sash windows to both the front and rear aspects and a winding staircase rising to first floor level. The original beamed ceiling and exposed wood floors add character as does the recessed slate fireplace with inset multi-fuel burner. The stylish kitchen is fitted with a range of modern base units with solid slate worktop and matching upstands together with an inset stainless steel sink. The integral appliances consist of a ceramic hob, electric oven and grill, dishwasher and washing machine. There are separate recessed cupboards with space for the fridge. Stepping up into the living room you will find a seagrass carpet, exposed ceiling beams, a range of deep built in storage cupboards and a picture window with deep sill giving views across the harbour, rugged cliffs and out to sea.
With painted wood panelled walls and a nautical rope handrail, the aforementioned staircase reaches the first floor to find two double bedrooms both with sliding sash windows to the front aspect, one with an exposed feature fireplace. The bathroom has a white suite which includes a panelled bath, slate tiling, panelled walls and exposed wood floors. A wooden double glazed window to rear aspect offers great views across the harbour to the rugged cliffs and out to sea. Lastly, further stairs rise to the attic bedroom with exposed beams and Velux window.
Services to the property include mains water, electricity and drainage. Henry's is a totally unique and interesting property oozing character and we recommend viewing at your earliest convenience.
Port Isaac is a historic picturesque fishing village, which is now well known for its role in the popular TV series 'Doc Martin' as the fictional town of 'Portwenn'. It offers many breathtaking walks across the dramatic coastline of North Cornwall as well as its own beach and harbour. There are delightful boutiques and galleries for those who wish to explore the magical narrow streets and to finish off you can always pop into one of the cosy café's, pubs or restaurants.
