Full description

An extraordinary marine penthouse apartment dominated by its panoramic views over Looe Harbour and its river estuary. Long L shaped hall, cloakroom, fabulous sitting/dining room with outer sitting area, fitted kitchen/breakfast room, master bedroom suite including dressing room and bathroom, 3 further bedrooms, bathroom, roof garden, garaging for 2 vehicles.


The apartment is set high above the harbour and quayside areas of the twin villages of East and West Looe, on the coast of South East Cornwall. The accommodation is completely dominated by a panorama, in three directions, from the nearby clock tower and quaint roof tops of West Looe, out to sea and over the river estuary, spanning the town of East Looe with its working harbour and quayside areas, and then upstream to the long river, bridge and wooded hillsides beyond.

Within a short walk are the local shops and facilities of West Looe, while the multitude of amenities of East Looe lie either within about a quarter of miles walk, or are accessed by a river taxi only yards from the property. Looe is a thriving town with a working harbour and deep sea fishing fleet and also has the benefit of a railway station linking to Liskeard in the north on the Penzance to Paddington line. Either side of the estuary lies the unspoilt coastline of South East Cornwall, accessed by the coastal path, with many areas owned by the National Trust.

The City of Plymouth is within only about half an hours drive offering a multitude of amenities including a large university, historic waterfront, Theatre Royal, National Marine Aquarium and the historic Hoe. On the outskirts of the City lies a large regional hospital. There is also a cross channel ferryport linking to Roscoff in Northern France and Santander in Spain.


The apartment lies on the fourth floor of a building constructed in the 1970s. As the penthouse, the benefits include the generous roof garden which also takes advantage of the views. The unusually sizeable floor plan, to an L shape, provides excellent natural lighting. Windows are uPVC double glazed and many facilities have been replaced in recent years with modern bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen/breakfast room.

The entrance is at ground level through a communal entrance hallway serving the apartments and a stairway rising up through the building.
