The dual aspect living room offers clear views to the south over the water, towards the Lizard peninsula and across to the Percuil river. The generous space has French windows with a glazed Juliet balcony, maximising the positioning.

The second bedroom is kept simple – why overpower that view?

The kitchen is slightly underwhelming and lacking that certain something. Nothing a lick of paint couldn't fix. An on-trend navy would be ideal to freshen up the cabinets, giving the room a hint of cool coastal style in the process.
