Four bedroom house overlooking Porthcothan beach with access to coastal path
My parents fell in love with Long Cove in 1953 and purchased it as a holiday home. They extended the house considerably and moved from Hampshire to live there permanently in 1978, my mother continued to live there with her pekinese after my father died in 1997, until her death in 2005. Although we live in Edinburgh we love Long Cove too much to sell it. It was substantially renovated in 2005 and we have rented it since then as well as going there ourselves as often as we can off season. We continually upgrade the house for example adding the decking in 2009
Owner purchased this House in 1953
Why Owner chose Saint Eval
My parents were on holiday at Harlyn bay in 1953 when they discovered Long Cove was for sale and bought what they described as their 'dream cottage' All my childhood holidays were spent there and our children and now grandchildren have spent many happy holidays there.
What makes this House unique
The views from the house are glorious, whatever the weather. Stunning sunsets in June,, waves crashing over the cliffs in storms, , turquoise seas in the summer. The house still has the feeling of the history of a family home . There is a library full of books and a very good upright piano.
