The old coastal fisherman’s cottage is the perfect waterfront renovation project

Some homes for sale offer parking for at least one car as a strong selling point, whether in the car or on the road directly outside, but this patio cottage can do better than that.

The house is located literally in front of the water, so if you bring your boat with you to live by the sea, this could be a perfect place to moor it, although you will have to investigate the authorization and the potential cost.

You don’t have to be the captain of your own tub to live here, but you will need to be a cash buyer, as the chalet doesn’t actually have its own tub inside, nor does it have a kitchen.

It’s the perfect waterfront remodeling project, cleaned up and down to the basics, so you might forget to bring the boat but you’ll have to remember to bring your drill and toolbox.

The sea view is not the only element of this privileged location which the happy new owner of the former fisherman’s chalet will be able to enjoy once the work is finished.

There is the historic wall of Conwy Castle at the end of this pretty waterfront road which adds a lot of character and cements this property as having one of the most unique locations in the area, aside from its neighbors in the street of course, who can claim the same.

When parking in the small car park in the shade of the castle ramparts, it’s hard not to be mesmerized by the breathtaking view of the water.

Across the quay, the horizon is filled with scenic views over the opposite bank of the river towards Deganwy, at the mouth of the River Conwy which empties into the Irish Sea.

The historic, coastal town of Conwy offers much more than stunning views due to its location, although some might argue that the views alone are worth a visit to the city to explore or even the temptation to pack your bags and move out. in this community.



The location combines coast and country, history and loads of things to do

Cottage in the terrace has several unique selling points

Of course, the majestic castle dominates the city and the skyline.

This medieval fortress has been steeped in the landscape for over 700 years, is one of the best examples in Europe, and is rightly a World Heritage Site.

According to Cadw, you can walk the entire castle wall circuit, taking in the views of Snowdonia on one side and panoramic sea views on the other.

How’s that for a view from across the road?

There is also a 700 year old castle wall at the end of the road

You can even see the pretty fisherman’s house nestled with its comfortable terrace by the quayside from this elevated position on the ramparts.

Then explore the narrow, winding streets of this historic town, still protected by the unbroken 1.3 km ring of city walls, to find places to shop, eat, and socialize.

And if you want to take inspiration from another pretty local house, the famous ‘smallest house in Britain’ is at the end of the terrace; they are two famous neighbors, ranging from super large to super small.

The terrace by the water is unique, especially since it houses the smallest house in Brittany at the back

The Fisherman’s House is definitely not the smallest house on the street

But this cottage demands that you also devote your time to bringing it back to life.

If you can get away from the activities on offer in this bustling city and the local land and water outdoor activities, there is work to be done.

King Edward I and his architect, Master Jacques de Saint-Georges, built both the castle and the walls over a very impressive four-year period, between 1283 and 1287.

So the pressure is really strong to have this lovely two bed terrace completely renovated and beautiful in a much faster time than Ed and his mate did on the road.

There aren’t any towers, spirals, or battlements here, but you might be struggling with old electrical and plumbing fixtures, so a complete remodel project is your goal for the foreseeable future.

New staircase and new windows would add more appropriate character

Living room fancy a wood stove

Get rid of the partition wall and the kitchen can also enjoy the water view

Enter the cottage and it’s a pretty traditional layout, with the living room up front enjoying those fascinating views outside through a large window.

To the rear there is a kitchen-diner with a door that opens onto a small garden in the courtyard, rather a pretty courtyard really, nestled against the castle wall – how’s that for a wonderful garden ?

So what’s needed here is an upgrade in services, facilities, heating and maybe even layout – it’s a complete renovation.

Room for cooking and eating in the back-dining kitchen

The kitchen door opens onto a small terrace and a vast castle wall

The ground floor could become a wonderful open-plan space meaning the whole area can benefit from the water view outside, subject to a building permit and a building permit, of course, because it means losing the separation wall.

New characterful windows and doors to the exterior would brighten up the facade and be more economical in terms of heating, replacing the predominantly single-glazed wood windows currently in place.

Inside, a new traditionally designed staircase would be a nice addition and more in keeping with the cottage style.

And a wood-burning stove or open fireplace, if possible, would lend the charm of a cottage that most people surely crave, especially after a day outdoors battling the bracing sea air while you go about. to your business in town.

Help you in your search for a home here:

The kitchen-diner should accommodate a new kitchen with all modern appliances but also with a classic Shaker style, perhaps in a soft heirloom color to continue the interior design vibe of the chalet.

A light wood parquet will unite the two spaces and provide visual and real warmth under the feet. It will make the space even bigger.

The upstairs bedroom has the best views

Pop the bed in front of the window for a constant connection to the view – if it fits

The bedrooms, of course, are in need of redecorating and the front one has arguably the best views of the house from its elevated position.

If possible, it’s a good idea to place the bed in front of the window for the best access to those uninterrupted views.

Fall asleep to the sound of the water, wake up to the sight of the sun shining on the coast and the rural landscape, without even moving.

If the measurements do not allow for a bed in front of the window, then a chair parked right next to it is a must, creating a peaceful place to fully connect to the outdoor scene from the comfort of the indoors.

Second bedroom at the back of the house

The bathroom is empty and looking for a trendy tub to add character

The currently totally empty bathroom would look great with a classic roll-up tub installed.

Hopefully a new owner will measure a few times to see if a new tub is suitable, including the width of the wall tiles.

The mathematical element of bathroom remodeling could prevent a mistake that could cost time and money and delay the project if the measurements are wrong.

With proper design and care the finished chalet will be up to modern standards and could look amazing – a classic coastal chalet.

It won’t be as spectacular as the iconic neighboring castle or as cute and famous as the little neighbor, but it will be a joy to live in this very special place.
