House on an island for sale

Newquay's house on an island for sale
The Island, Newquay, North Cornwall
Offers in the region of £995,000

House On An Island For Sale
Here's a great opportunity to own one of the most photographed houses in the UK because "The Island" is up for sale. The three bedroomed house, built in the 1930s, is perched on its own granite rock in Newquay, Cornwall and has to be the ultimate in living by the beach.

Perfect for those who like to be close to the sea, the house and wrap around terrace command spectacular 360 degree Atlantic views.

Access to the house is via a 70ft-high footbridge which was built in 1901 and is the only privately-owned suspension bridge in the country. Shame it doesn't have a drawbridge. When the tide is in the island is completely surrounded by water but when it's out, there's also direct access to the sandy beach below.

The current owners, ex-Tory whip, Lord Long and his wife Lady Long, have decided that after 10 years they'd like something with easier access. Great news for a millionaire surfer who wants the ultimate in beach access from their home!
