Tenure: Freehold

BEACH 450 METRES, LOOE 5 MILES, PLYMOUTH 18 MILES, FOWEY 8 MILES An outstanding seaside development opportunity comprising a south and west facing site with planning permission for an iconic house, designed by multi-award winning RIBA architects Arco 2 and only 450 metres from Downderry Beach. Proposed 1469 sqft (136 sqm) House, Open Plan Living Room/Kitchen, 3 Bedrooms (1 Ensuite), Double Carport, Garden, Sea and Rural Views. 

LOCATION The site is conveniently located in the established and near beachside residential area of Trerieve, 450 metres from the beach and only 300 metres walk to the village centre. The site occupies an elevated south and west facing position and the village enjoys views over Whitsand and Looe Bay as far as The Lizard on the horizon.

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, 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.  

DESCRIPTION Trerieve comprises a well regarded and established residential area of individual detached houses. The house will have its own direct access from the estate road, the site represents an exceptionally rare opportunity for a builder to develop an iconic coastal home in an enviable location on a beautifully unspoilt part of the Cornish Riviera.
