House overview - owner's description

Historic harbourside house built from the timbers of an ancient shipwreck and perched, overlooking the harbor and lighthouse in the picturesque Cornish fishing village of Mevagissey.

The SeaHoss is a historic house perched on the harbour wall in the quintessentially Cornish fishing village of Mevagissey. The cottage was built from the timbers of an ancient shipwreck which had been washed up on local beaches in the 17th Century. Hundreds of years ago the house was used as a Cornish pilchard palace, with net lofts above and fishermen's accommodation and we have done our best, not only to preserve, but to showcase the little pieces of Cornish history found during renovations.
The SeaHoss is now renovated to a very high standard and has dramatic views over the harbour, sea and lighthouse from every window.
On the ground floor there is an open plan kitchen diner with every modern appliance and a dining area next to the old pilchard press with harbour views. An old spiral staircase leads to the spacious sitting room and study with flat screen tv, log burner and library. the views from this floor are truly wonderful, both in winter to storm watch next to the cosy log fire and in summer with the fishing boats and yachts.
A door leads out onto the coast path from the little hallway and there is also a decadent wet room with rain shower on this floor. On the second floor there are two spacious bedrooms, both with harbour views and a bathroom with slipper bath overlooking the water.
Outside is a small terrace, a rarity in this location and perfect to sit and watch the watercraft. The house faces South and so it has the sun all day. The beach and lighthouse are just a few yards from the doorstep. Mevagissey has a wonderful museum, aquarium and many harbour fronting bistros. A jumble of cobbled streets hold many interesting independent shops. there is no parking at the property due to location but all parking charges are covered at the nearest car park just a short walk away. There is a wireless sound system and super speed internet throughout the house. Please note that the house is not suitable for children under 5 or anyone with mobility difficulties due to the winding spiral staircase
