Little Cottage

The name is admittedly somewhat misleading; Little Cottage on the coast of Cornwall isn’t small, nor does it resemble a cottage. Its name derives from the house that once stood in its place. London architect Alex Michaelis replaced that dilapidated cottage with a spacious building that draws its inspiration from classical modernist architecture. On the waterfront, the linear design is invigorated by an asymmetrical window arrangement, while on the entrance side different window formats and the curved shape of the staircase create playful accents. The large window fronts and skylights flood the rooms with light and the entirely white design adds additional brightness. The decor is simple and pared-down. There is no need for eye-catchers, the view of the sea is enough. The living room and the bedrooms all face the seaside. On the ground floor there is a “dormitory” for five people and three further bedrooms can be found on the first floor. You reach them via a shell-like staircase: the higher you climb, the narrower the steps become and the wider the walls.

What to do

Beach, surfing, walks, restaurants and there are lovely towns nearby.

Why we like this house

The house offers a pure beach feeling: light flooded rooms, a casual interior, beautiful vistas of the sea and the beach is right outside the door.
