LOCATION In an enviable setting on the highly prized Cornish Riviera, St Georges lies only a short walk (250 yards) from Seaton Beach. The property occupies a south facing, front line position commanding an extraordinary panorama over Whitsand and Looe Bay, with the landmark of Rame Head in the east, the Eddystone Lighthouse on the horizon and Looe Island in the west, the constant passage of commercial, naval and pleasure craft across the bay provides a 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 recently 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 St Georges is a fabulous near beachside home, south facing and with outstanding views over the coastline and coastal waters from each of the principal rooms.

In recent years our client has successfully holiday let the house with the Visit England 4 star designation and Visit England Gold for quality and customer service, letting figures and occupancy details are available for seriously interested parties. The area is a haven for wildlife and one can clearly hear the sound of the waves rolling onto the beach below and the skylarks singing in the sky above - a truly magical and immersive experience.
