A character Old Coastguard Cottage, one of the two larger end of terrace properties which were built, we understand, in the 1820’s of rendered elevations under a slate roof. The property itself has been in the same family ownership since the 1950’s and is in need of updating and refurbishment. The rear of the property is south facing, as is the rear garden which has a detached stone built outbuilding offering possible scope for an additional room, or as it is currently used, as storage.
