This character maisonette for sale is thought to be more than a century old and has "stunning" harbour views.

Driftwood, in Polperro, is newly renovated and sits above a locally owned jewellery shop, benefitting from harbour views.

The building, which is beside the historic Wheel House, appears to have origins in the early 19th century and may once have been a pottery shop. 

A door from the harbourside leads into the entrance porch, with stairs up to the first floor and main living space of the maisonette.

The agent commented: “Driftwood is a beautiful newly renovated character property chiefly laid out above a locally owned silver jewellery shop and perfectly situated on the harbourside of Polperro. 

“The property benefits from its own entrance and is laid out over three floors which includes the entrance hall. This quaint maisonette also offers a private courtyard to the rear accessed from the kitchen.”
