Only moments from the Cove and the centre of this quintessential fishing village, is this semi-detached maisonette which has been much improved within the owner's tenure. The residence would seem ideal for those looking for a delightful lock up and leave property in a superb setting or indeed, as is the current owner's use, a successful holiday let. Equally it would make a family home.

The accommodation, in brief provides, on the ground floor an entrance hallway, two bedrooms and a shower room. On the first floor is a beautiful open plan living space with fitted kitchen and lounge with a lovely view down to the sea. There is a further bedroom on this floor. To the outside there is a parking space with an integral garage which has plumbing for a washing machine. The property benefits from LPG central heating.

The village has its origins in medieval times as a collection of fish cellars in a sheltered south east facing coastal valley with shingle cove. Fishing subsidised local farmers livelihoods. From the 16th century the village became inhabited with fishing as the main occupation. Subsequently houses, lofts, capstan houses and cellars, constructed by local stone or cob walls and thatched or slated roofs, were built along the beach and up the sides of the valley leading to Cadgwith's characteristic Cornish fishing village appearance. In recent times a very small Anglican Church was built dedicated to St Mary.

Today Cadgwith functions as a small fishing cove with fishermen seen bringing in their haul and working on their boats. Also the cove has an extremely popular public house which is home to the famous Cadgwith Singers, who are well known for their repertoire of traditional folk songs. For day to day needs the village of Ruan Minor is a short distance away and boasts an active community with many clubs, societies and organisations, primary school, local store/post office, Anglican Church, Methodist Chapel and doctor's surgery.

In the area is the National Trust's picturesque Kynance Cove, the village of the Lizard, which is mainland Britain's most Southerly Point and the stretches of golden sands at Kennack. Comprehensive schooling is available in the nearby village of Mullion, which lies approximately four miles distant, where there is a doctor's surgery, pharmacy and a good selection of shops. The market town of Helston is approximately ten miles away and includes a good range of amenities having a sports centre with indoor swimming pool and a variety of national shops and supermarkets.
