LOCATION THE GLORIOUS CORNISH RIVIERA - The property is situated in an elevated south facing and prized near beachfront position only a short walk (180 yards) from Downderry Beach on a stretch of coastline often referred to as the Cornish Riviera. The constant passage of commercial, naval and pleasure craft across the bay, provides an extraordinary, distracting and inspirational outlook.
Downderry and 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 This seaside house offers well presented accommodation in an enviable south facing location, close to the beach and with super views over the coastal waters of Whitsand Bay. The property has in recent years undergone some improvement and reconfiguration to reverse the layout with the living accommodation on the first floor capitalising on the sea views. Planning permission was granted on the 18th September 2009 for "construction of side extension, balcony to front elevation, dormer extension to front elevation and bridged access to rear parking area". Work has commenced in so much our client created the balcony and bridged access and the permission may therefore be considered extant, subject to verification from Cornwall Council Planning Department.
The property has been successfully used by our client for holiday letting purposes and may be sold furnished and equipped subject to separate negotiation.
