Full Description


Lying within the famous picturesque and appealing conservation village of Portnahaven, this is a TRADITIONAL MID-TERRACED COTTAGE, with direct views over the harbour and village.  The property also has a super view to the sea from its raised back garden.

Number 8 High Street was originally a typical small single storey cottage.  However, upper floor accommodation was added, as was a rear extension, in the 1970s.

Electric heating is provided throughout by a mix of storage and panel heaters.  A former heating system, fired from a back boiler, is no longer in use, although the radiators remain in situ.  All windows are double glazed and carpets and floor coverings will be included.

The surprisingly spacious accommodation comprises:-


Front Porch:  Double glazed entry door, leading directly in to lounge/dining room through glass panelled internal doorway;  electricity meter and fuse box, wall mounted.

Lounge/Dining Room:  Open plan, with two windows to the front, taking in the full width of the house;  coal fireplace (chimney not currently in use).

Rear Hallway:  With single glazed external door to back garden;  small under stair cupboard;  open tread pine stairway to upper floor.

Shower Room:  To rear, within extension, and including shower compartment, w.c. and wash-hand basin.

Kitchen:  Good sized working kitchen within the rear extension, with space for table;  various fitted floor and wall units with worktops;  white goods free standing comprising fridge/freezer, dish-washer, washing machine and cooker are all available and can be included without warranty.


Landing:  Providing access to all upper floor rooms.

Bedroom 1:  Good sized double bedroom to the front, with fitted wardrobes.

Bedroom 2:  Another double room to the front, again with fitted wardrobes.

Bedroom 3:  Large twin room to the rear with fitted wardrobes.

Bathroom:  To the rear, within extension, with bath, w.c. and wash-hand basin.


There is no front garden.  Entry is taken directly from High Street which has on-street parking.  The raised back garden is narrow, but is terraced and extends back a fair distance, to create a long rectangular plot.  The garden includes a hard standing area at the back door, concreted patio area above same, and a grassed drying area at the top.

Pedestrian access to the rear of the property is not formally constituted, but is established as a right of way.
