A charming three bedroom cottage situated right in the heart of the pretty fishing village of Beer. The cottage has been let very successfully for holidays and therefore offers a great investment opportunity but works equally well as a private home by the sea. Accessed through a small archway, the property is nicely tucked away in a small terrace of just three but ideally placed for access to the shops and cafes as well as the beach just a few hundred metres away. This pretty cottage, with stone elevations offers good sized accommodation with three bedrooms on the first floor, (two doubles and a generous single). At ground level, the hallway (with two storage cupboards) leads to a sitting room with fireplace, kitchen/dining room and bathroom. At the back of the house is a very useful covered area behind the kitchen, which provides an ideal space for wet clothes etc and leads to a garden shed/store. From here a door leads out to an enclosed, paved courtyard with plenty of space for Al Fresco dining in the evenings.
At the front, just opposite the cottage, is a further area of garden with a small triangular planting bed and a seating area and there is a stone built store room just beside and attached to the cottage. The property benefits from gas central heating and wooden double glazing and is being sold with no onward chain.
