TOFF’S POSH RE­TREAT

Uxbridge Gazette - - Property Talk -

The blue win­dow frames and front door of Rose Cot­tage in the Cor­nish town of Port Isaac have be­come very fa­mil­iar to reg­u­lar view­ers of TV se­ries Doc Martin. The prop­erty is in an area of the vil­lage fa­mous for its nar­row al­leys and a hig­gledy-pig­gledy lay­out as his­toric fish­er­men’s cot­tages col­lide with each other be­hind the town’s high street.

Rose Cot­tage has also fea­tured as the home of sev­eral char­ac­ters in the hit ITV drama.

The show is set in the fic­tional sea­side vil­lage of Portwenn and filmed al­most ex­clu­sively in and around the houses and streets of Port Isaac, which has been in­stru­men­tal in giv­ing the se­ries its dis­tinc­tive look.

Rose Cot­tage has cashed in on this fame. The prop­erty has been let out for a long time as a hol­i­day home and agent Yopa says it earns ap­prox­i­mately £20,000 a year from vis­it­ing tourists.

Its owner, who lives in Guernsey, is now sell­ing up and has put it on the mar­ket for £515,000. An ad­di­tional £1,100 a year is payable for a park­ing space at the top of vil­lage, as the cot­tage is only ac­ces­si­ble on foot.

It has three dou­ble bed­rooms, two re­cep­tion rooms, a kitchen with an AGA, and a small gar­den at the front plus a ter­race at the back.

Ge­or­gia Tof­folo or ‘Toff’ to her 1.9 mil­lion In­sta­gram fol­low­ers has en­joyed a me­te­oric rise to fame since she joined TV re­al­ity show Made in Chelsea in 2014 and then, three years later, won I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

Her brains, good looks and sunny per­son­al­ity helped her sur­vive both the sharp-el­bowed Chelsea set and sev­eral retch-wor­thy Bush­tucker Tri­als.

Ge­or­gia also has an im­pres­sive CV for a 24-year-old. It in­cludes two years of vol­un­tary work, a law de­gree, jobs at sev­eral le­gal firms as well a stint at The Lady magazine.

She has also had sev­eral ca­reer-en­hanc­ing li­aisons both on and off cam­era in­clud­ing with James Mid­dle­ton, Ge­orge Lineker and Chelsy Davy’s ex Charles Goode.
