Situated in mainland Britain's most southerly village, a spacious character residence which is currently divided into three dwellings. These comprise the owner's two bedroom accommodation, a two bedroom cottage and a one bedroom holiday let. During 2015 the property had a complete refurbishment which included a new roof, installation of double glazing and redecorated throughout.

Brick Cottage was reputedly built in the 1860s and is one of the most iconic buildings in The Lizard and is a fine example of one of the few brick built cottages that remains in the village. From the front elevation distant sea views can be enjoyed. The property is to be sold as a going concern with all furniture, fixtures and fittings. The current layout of the property is the main spacious two bedroom owner's accommodation, Brick Cottage is an attached two bedroom, two storey holiday let and The Lobster Pot, is a self-contained, one bedroom let. The whole property could either be converted back into one large property or, as in its previous life, four dwellings. Brick Cottage benefits from environmentally friendly systems to include a Biomass log boiler which powers the whole central heating system and solar water panels. The property is situated in a third of an acre of well stocked mature gardens with a vegetable plot and greenhouse, working well with pump, a Koi Carp pond and a large detached, double glazed summer house. There are numerous useful outbuildings (two former serpentine works) and an office and two timber garages. There is parking for several cars.

The Lizard village is mainland Britain's most southerly village, a special place jutting out into the sea where the Atlantic Ocean and the English Channel meet, it has been designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The village provides a range of amenities including Post Office, food stores, butcher and a number of well regarded public houses and restaurants. There is a primary school whilst a comprehensive school can be found in the village of Mullion which is approximately four miles distant.
