Fore Street, Newlyn
Circa 1771 this double fronted property has been in the same family for many generations and was built by the current owners great great grandfather, he was a fisherman and the lofts at the back of the house were both used by fishermen of Newlyn. The one above the back door was used to store nets and other fishing equipment and the large loft on pillars was used as a gathering place to mend nets. The property was used as lodgings for Gotch and Stanhope Forbes. Gotch painted many paintings here as did Walter Langley.
The property has two good size double bedrooms with a third bedroom adjacent to bedroom one. With some re-modelling you could have three bedrooms or keep the two bedrooms and add an upstairs bathroom. Once outside, the true uniqueness of the property comes out, with your very own net loft along with a covered courtyard with open air aspect. There is also a good sized garden which is very rare for a property of this type in Newlyn. This is not your usual Newlyn cottage, this house just keeps on giving with its large garden, sensational views and traditional unspoilt net loft. Youre not just buying a property with this house: its a piece of history.
