LOCATION Reflections is situated in an elevated south facing position just outside the village environment yet only a short walk (0.3 mile) from the beaches at Seaton and Downderry.
Amenities include a primary school (rated "good" by Ofsted), restaurant, beachside public house, church, beach café, village store, post office and doctors' surgery. Similar facilities are available at St Germans, which also has a main line railway station providing a useful commuter link to Plymouth (Plymouth to London Paddington 3 hours). The neighbouring village of Seaton also has a Countryside Park with riverside and woodland walks. Additional local facilities include golf at Portwrinkle, or at Looe Bindown. The South West Coast Path is accessed nearby with parts of the neighbouring coastline in the ownership of the National Trust.
The beach has a slipway and offers the opportunity to keep and launch boats (by permit) and has a long and interesting foreshore with a fascinating mix of rock pools and sand. Seaton beach benefits from a RNLI Lifeguard station during the summer season. The sailing waters of the area are favoured by yachtsmen and deep water moorings are available on the River Tamar at Saltash and at Fowey/Polruan. Saltash has a Waitrose store on its northern outskirts and the city of Plymouth offers an abundance of facilities centred around the historic and fascinating waterfront areas of the Barbican and Hoe.
DESCRIPTION Reflections comprises a unique, architect designed house in an elevated coastal location. Carefully designed to capture the essence of the seaside location and capitalise on the truly outstanding views, the property is only 120 yards from the waters edge as the crow flies. The maritime wildlife and the constant passage of commercial, naval and pleasure craft around Whitsand and Looe Bay as they approach Plymouth Sound and Looe Harbour, makes this an extraordinary, distracting and inspirational outlook.
This unique house incorporates cutting edge architectural design and has strong eco credentials (EPC - B) with sliding and bi-fold Schueco double glazed doors and windows, heat recovery system, air source heat pump serving underfloor heating, high levels of insulation and low voltage LED lighting. Further features include VADO taps and showers, Cat 7 cabling in all principal rooms, bespoke floating tread staircase, Siberian Larch Glulam beams and Porcelanosa ceramic tiles amongst many other quality fittings.
The 36' open plan living room/kitchen has a triple aspect with outstanding views, the floor is of engineered oak and the thoughtfully configured kitchen has ranges of black quartz worksurfaces with integrated appliances. The sitting room area has a Stovax contemporary wood burner and wide sliding doors open onto the fabulous south and west facing terrace. A discreet library area leads from here into a cosy snug. Further accommodation on this floor includes a laundry room, cloakroom and plant room. The floating tread staircase leads up to the private study/lookout with stunning views to distract you from your work.
The bedrooms lie on the lower ground floor. The truly luxurious master bedroom suite has a dressing room and ensuite bath/shower room with walk in multiheaded shower and Bluetooth illuminated mirror amongst other features, this bedroom has a balcony and a dual aspect with 180 degree sea and coastline views. There are three further bedrooms on this floor each with luxury ensuite shower rooms and private terrace or balconies taking full advantage of the views.
The garden floor creates flexibility and would suit a variety of purposes including leisure/entertaining suite, cinema room, gymnasium or perhaps a self contained annexe or guest suite briefly comprising a large room with two pairs of bifold doors and a dual aspect leading out onto an extensive south facing and composite decked terrace, a shower room/wc with space for installation of a sauna together with a further study or fifth bedroom.
OUTSIDE The property is approached through remotely controlled electric gates to a level gravelled driveway with ample space for boat/motorhome etc and in turn leads to the double carport/store.
The landscaped gardens include a large terrace (49' x 13') adjacent to the lower ground floor accommodation. There are well stocked beds with grasses, bamboo and agapanthus and recently planted fruit trees. Steps lead down to a level lawn.
The entire garden is sheltered from the north, has an open south aspect providing a mild maritime climate and is bathed in light from sunrise until sunset.
