A three bedroom character cottage once owned by the famous Barbara Hepworth, set in a most convenient location on Barnoon Hill. Cross Estates are delighted to showcase Hepworth Cottage.
A charming cottage steeped in local history and once owned by the late, great Barbara Hepworth and Ben Nicholson, to which the cottage bears it’s name sitting opposite Hepworth Gardens. This property oozes character throughout and retains it’s original features including ceiling beams and exposed stonework, yet has been classily modernised. Whilst set over three floors, the ground floor and first floor have further split levels where the kitchen and main bedroom sit, adding to the character and homely feel.
The top floor boasts a beautiful view over the rooftops and beyond to the sea with St Ia’s church in the foreground. A fantastic little bonus is the decked area which is accessed from the first floor. The area currently has an unconventional access, but if you’re ok climbing through a window, then you’ve got an outdoor sun trap in the roof tops. Subject to the relevant planning permissions, a more conventional access could be installed.
Hepworth Cottage is located at the bottom of Barnoon Hill, meaning you’re a stones throw away from the hustle and bustle of Fore Street with some of town’s best restaurants and classically Cornish shops right on your doorstep. The harbour front is just 200 meters away, with Porthmeor Beach 200 meters in the other direction. Really, a most convenient spot for your family or holiday guests.
Considering the above, it's no surprise that Hepworth Cottage is currently a profitable holiday let and will be sold fully furnished ready to carry on. For more information on holiday let figures please contact us to discuss.
