A rare opportunity to purchase a superb waterside apartment within a Grade II listed former quayside warehouse, in the iconic harbour of Padstow.
An ideal holiday home or base in Cornwall.
A fantastically positioned apartment having spectacular views over the bustling harbour of Padstow.
Having originally been a warehouse, the original doors for importing goods have been converted into large windows providing superb coastal views.
Occupying the upper floor of the building, Number 6 is a large, two-bedroom apartment. The impressive and generous sitting room has three windows offering panoramic views over Padstow's harbour. An exposed stone wall makes a nice feature.
The property has been completely re-furbished, re-configured and renovated over the past 12 months and is presented in ‘brand new’ condition.
A large open plan living/dining kitchen is front facing and offers superb views over the harbour. The new, contemporary handle-less kitchen includes Miele Double Ovens, Induction Hob and integral Dishwasher. A Quooker boiling water tap and an AEG washer/Dryer.
There are two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom, the other an en-suite shower room both of which have Porcelanosa tiling and contemporary sanitaryware.
A spiral staircase leads up to a very large loft space with magnificent, exposed timbers throughout. There are a series of Velux skylights allowing this room plenty of potential for further accommodation. This could be a new master bedroom converting the apartment in to a 3-bedroom apartment (subject to planning permissions).
The apartment has its own independent access from Strand Street running to the rear of the building.
Number 6 has the advantage of a large private storeroom off the entrance lobby at ground floor level which is useful for sea kayaks, surfboard or bike store. It also has the benefit of a shower room, ideal for washing off after a day at the beach.
The property is currently a 5-star rated holiday let and can be offered furnished (by separate negotiation). Viewings must be by appointment only during change over days (Saturday).
This leasehold apartment is being offered including the freehold of the building.
The property is set in the heart of old Padstow with its picturesque bustling harbour, shops, restaurants and pubs. It is an increasingly fashionable charming fishing village made famous by the celebrity chef, Rick Stein.
Padstow sits in an inlet on the west side of the Camel Estuary, opposite Rock and protected from the prevailing winds off the Atlantic Ocean.
The town offers a good range of amenities, as does nearby Wadebridge, around eight miles by car or five miles via the Camel Trail footpath and cycle way which follows the river. Other superb walks include the Saints Way from Padstow to Fowey and the Coastal Footpath.
Directions On arrival at Padstow on the A389 (from the direction of Wadebridge and the A30) take the right turn marked' Town Centre, Docks and Camel Trail' and continue down the hill to the main car parks along the quayside. We would suggest parking here and walking to the harbour where the property is found on the left had side overlooking the harbour. The doors to the properties are at the rear, off Strand Street.
Services & council tax Mains water, drainage and electricity are connected to the property. Heating is electric with Quantum Dimplex radiators. Council Tax B.
The property is held leasehold (960+ years), whilst the ownership of the freehold will also be transferred to the owner of apartment 6. The lower apartment and the ground floor shop and art gallery to the front of the building is under separate leasehold ownership at a peppercorn rent. Restrictive covenants prevent any noisy or odorous use in order to protect the enjoyment of the apartments above. Details are held by the agents.
