'Where the little shingled houses down the little grassy street are grey with salt of sea-winds and the strong sea-air is sweet!' In circa 1910 Bliss Carmen wrote these words as part of a poem named 'Sconset. The Arietta Hussey house originallly dating back to 1814 is the heart of 'Sconset. Designed by Christopher Peacock the brand new kitchen is well executed and allows for modern day living. This rambling antique has been fully restored from the ground up and sits on a full pour foundation. Rare for the village, this three bedroom and two bath cottage has a large lawn and parking for two.
