VIRTUALLY ON THE BEACH, LOOE 6 MILES, PLYMOUTH 18 MILES, FOWEY 16 MILES, NEWQUAY AIRPORT 36 MILES Only 50 yards from the beach and slipway - Come and fulfil your seaside lifestyle dream in this detached contemporary south facing house offering thoughtfully laid out and spacious accommodation with stunning views over the sheltered coastal waters of Looe Bay.

LOCATION The property is situated in a south facing and prized near beachfront position within about 50 yards of Downderry Beach on a stretch of coastline often referred to as the Cornish Riviera and renowned for its mild maritime climate. The constant passage of commercial, naval and pleasure craft across the bay, provides an extraordinary, distracting and inspirational outlook.



Downderry together with the neighbouring beachside village of Seaton have 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). Seaton also has a Countryside Park with riverside and woodland walks.



Downderry was, in recent years, noted by the Sunday Times in a list of the top ten "Best Places to Live by the sea". Golf is available at Portwrinkle, St Mellion International Golf Resort, or 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). Seaton beach benefits from a RNLI Lifeguard station during the summer.



The sailing waters of the area are favoured by yachtsmen and deep water moorings are available on the Rivers Lynher and Tamar at St Germans, Saltash and 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. The Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Beauty, the famous surfing beaches of North Cornwall, historic country houses and many other places of interest lie within an easy drive.

DESCRIPTION Completed in 2010 by our client, Mara Brae comprises a sublime seaside house, designed to capitalise on it's enviable south facing position with distracting sea views available from the principal rooms. The property has various features including Rheinzink gutters and downpipes, part zinc roof, oil fired central heating (Worcester Bosch), full double glazing, rainwater harvesting for the WCs and solid oak flooring throughout amongst many others.



Mara Brae has been used and cherished by our clients as their primary family home however, in recent years they have successfully holiday let the house during the high summer season. Given the vibrant village community and the close proximity to the beach the property is equally suited to use as a home or indeed as a second home/holiday let.



To take full advantage of the sea views the layout is of reversed design, the property works with the gentle coastal slope enabling garden access at both ground and first floor levels. The accommodation extends to about 2532 sq ft and briefly comprises - reception hall with a deep cupboard and cloakroom/wc off, the stunning 21' sitting room with Morso wood burner has exposed beams and glazing to the apex together with a sliding door to the balcony. The 28' kitchen/dining/family room with wide windows and sliding door to the balcony provides fabulous family and entertaining space dominated by the distracting sea views. There is a study/5th bedroom off with a walk in dressing room which is future proofed for conversion to an ensuite shower/wc.



On the garden floor there are four double bedrooms one of which has an ensuite shower/wc. Further accommodation on this floor includes a family bathroom, boiler room and a walk in store cupboard.

OUTSIDE The property is approached over a level gravel drive providing parking for at least three cars (with the ability to create more if required). There is a decked patio area with Hot Tub and an enclosed level lawned garden, from here a path leads to an open storage area and two workshops/sheds.



The large south facing balcony has glass and stainless steel balustrading and provides the perfect vantage point to observe the views and the amazing sunsets over Looe Island.
