Summary the mysterious, much-desired fisherman's cottage is now on the market.

Unique freehold pied-à-terre – ideal for the serious offshore
sailor - ample room for wet sails; or London visitors to the
Barbican; students or bachelor; great holiday-let or home.

Location Nestled behind New Street, one of the oldest streets on the
sought-after Barbican, Plymouth, and just a minute's level walk
from local pub life and the ancient port, the Fisherman's Cottage
is hidden and quiet.

Walk to
• National Marine Aquarium;
• Mayflower Steps from where the Pilgrim
Fathers left for America in 1620;
• Pubs, bars, restaurants and boutiques;
• City centre including Drake Circus shopping
complex and the
• Nationally renowned Theatre Royal.

The A38 trunk road, only 3.5 miles away, links Cornwall to the M5
motorway at Exeter and the rest of the south west peninsular.
Water taxis link the Barbican to Mount Batten and to the Royal
William Yard.
The Royal William Yard is home to local and national traders.

Description This delightful cottage has been renovated by the best, local
Cornwall craftsmen, with beautiful finishes, using only quality
materials throughout.

Area, with its own separate title, the little iron gate opens to the
cottage's next unique feature – its own

Through the glazed mock stable-door, and once snugly inside from
the garden, the bright natural light of the cottage is evident.

The ground level of the cottage shows off its bespoke solid oak
kitchen, with solid stone tops and the best fixtures and finishes. The
kitchen enjoys a window servery to the garden, soft close drawers
and cupboards; a built-in fridge and dishwasher, full-sized electric
oven and stove with gas hotplates plus a handy pull down table.
The fully tiled ground floor walk-in shower room includes a square
hand-basin, recessed shower and low-level w/c- bidet plus
extractor fan to the exterior.

The one-time chimney alcoves on both ground and first levels are
ideal for display – or a mock wood stove.
The solid oak staircase and oak-floored lounge room benefit from
the extra natural light from the windows of both upper levels.
The second floor double bedroom, with large window above the
garden, also has solid oak flooring and exposed beams. It makes
good use of space, enjoying timber bespoke built-in sliding double
wardrobes with shelf & hanging space and overhead storage space.
