In the sought after old town area of Padstow is a cottage of exemplary quality and style, character and elegance. Keepers Cottage has three double bedrooms and is tucked away towards the top of High Street, a quiet and tranquil setting and area of conservation located only a few minutes walk of the vibrant quayside, shops, cafes and restaurants that picturesque Padstow offers. One of the key attributes to Keepers Cottage is the off road parking and garage, a valuable commodity in this coveted location.
During their 12 year tenure, our clients have completed a top down programme of renovation, refurbishment and extension to create a home of real calibre and individuality. All the original features remain such as beamed ceilings, thick walls and a gorgeous stone façade. Noteworthy additions include a beautiful handmade bespoke Rozen kitchen, black granite work surfaces, a pale blue Aga, Amtico flooring, a contemporary wood burning stove, two stylish modern bathrooms and handmade double glazed timber windows.
As the accompanying floorplan illustrates, the cottage has a flowing L shaped open plan kitchen/living/dining area - beautifully created by a single storey extension with vaulted ceiling, timber ridge beam, Velux windows and bi-fold doors to the courtyard garden. Furthermore, the ground floor incorporates a double bedroom and wetroom shower room, entrance porch and lots of natural light. Up on the first floor, the landing is a most useful space and doubles as a tranquil spot for relaxing with recessed storage, exposed beam and space for armchairs. From here are two double bedrooms, one with exposed stone walls, a stylish shower room again with exposed stone wall and a separate cloakroom.
To the rear of Keepers Cottage is a secluded and private courtyard beautifully landscaped and bounded by the original Prideaux Brune Grade II listed walls that belonged to the estate. Steps lead through a timber gate to the parking space associated with Keepers Cottage and this sits just in front of the single garage with up and over door, personal door to the side and plenty of overhead storage. Services to the property include mains water, gas, electricity and drainage.
