You Can Nab This Cozy Cornwall Cottage Near England’s Coast for $720,000

When one thinks of cottages, often images of fairytale dwellings or complete solitude in nature come to mind. In Cornwall, England, a new listing combines the quaint vibe of a traditional cottage with a bright and contemporary refurbishment. Sitting in the heart of St. Minver, the home asks for offers starting at £625,000, which converts roughly to around $720,000 USD. Perfect for a U.S. native looking to dip their toes across the pond, or a Londoner’s weekend getaway.

The property comes with two buildings, with the main house consisting of two bedrooms and a bathroom, and a separate one-bedroom addition with an en suite. A small but mighty getaway near the sea, the total square footage amounts to just around 1,050 square feet.

A recent refurbishment combines the rustic elements of a historical home with a cheery design. The main floor is primarily white, where a cozy sitting room holding an inglenook fireplace and slate floors flows into the eat-in kitchen with a breakfast nook. The two bedrooms upstairs have high ceilings accented by beautiful wood beams, while the updated bathroom features additional wood accents. The additional building on the property is perfect for a tenant, an art studio or creative workshop, or whatever the new owners may desire.

Located close to a downtown area with a pub and beaches, this cottage is an ideal Cornwall retreat. You may even make friends with Gordon Ramsay, who has a house in the area. John Bray and Partners Estates holds the lovely England listing.
