Commanding the most sensational harbour side location – an iconic and prominent apartment, beautifully refurbished and enjoying mesmerising views over the harbourLocation
Mousehole is one Cornwall’s most loved harbours. Timeless and evocative of a bygone era, small streets and alleyways wind around the sandy harbour. Cliff paths lead in both directions along spectacular coastline to secret coves. Perhaps more than any other part of the county, West Cornwall embodies these qualities, blessed with stunning white powdered shell beaches and crystal clear blue water for some of the best water sports and diving in the UK.
Once referred to as "The loveliest village in England" by Dylan Thomas, Mousehole's pretty stone cottages, fine restaurants, the famous Ship Inn, the Old Coastguard Hotel, post office, grocery store and art galleries are clustered around the small medieval harbour. Nearby Newlyn, famous as one of the uk’s most important fishing harbours, now has its own independent cinema, delicatessen and boutique shops.Description
Lamorna, Flat 1 The Lobster Pot, commands an exceptional front line position within Mousehole, one of Cornwall’s most iconic and highly regarded traditional fishing villages.
For many, the listed exterior of The Lobster Pot and especially Lamorna, epitomizes Mousehole and it continues to stand proud over the harbour. Converted in early 2000’s, internally, the accommodation was sympathetically and thoroughly refurbished in 2015 by the current vendors, providing beautifully finished interiors, combining the charm and character of the building effortlessly with modern contemporary facilities.
The master bedroom and living/dining room enjoy the fantastic views over the historic harbour and out to sea. The living accommodation flows well, the interconnecting kitchen/dinning room is galleried to the living room. The master bedroom, well appointed bathroom and study are accessed to one end of the apartment, with the guest en suite bedrooms accessed via the entrance hall. Views are also enjoyed from the well-appointed kitchen/dining room and the courtyard is adjacent to the private front entrance door.
Lamorna would make a perfect permanent residence or alternatively a holiday home or investment by virtue of it’s magical location and ability to awaken to the sound of the tide lapping over the sand in the harbour below.
