Full description

A wonderful marine home with spectacular views towards Looe Island. Dramatic sea views, beautiful gardens, balcony, sought after coastal village, garage. EPC Band G.

Situation - The property is set in a commanding position on a green south facing hillside, nestling neatly between the bay of Whitsand and the promontory of Looe, within an established residential cul-de-sac of individually designed homes. This terrific village enjoys a mild climate and boasts comprehensive facilities including a handy post office/general store, doctors' surgery, primary school and 19th century church, together with various pubs and restaurants. Similar facilities are available at St Germans, which also has a mainline railway station providing an excellent commuter link with Plymouth (Plymouth to London Paddington 3 hours).
The late Sir John Betjeman admired the spectacular views from Downderry. The gentle cliffs roll and tumble towards the sea, which bathes in the constant ebb and flow of the English Channel. For those that like to get wet, Downderry and Seaton are notable surf breaks and there are great sailing, diving and fishing on the doorstep and there is a slipway at Downderry beach.
This village lies a relatively short drive from the A38 and the maritime port of Plymouth is within easy commuting distance.

Description - This bright and spacious family home is a truly exceptional waterside residence, situated in a commanding position, with breathtaking sea views, this is a great example of contemporary waterside living. Constructed over two levels, the house enjoys a surprising degree of privacy.
Cleverly designed to maximise the breathtaking views from the property, the aptly named Top O' The Hill extends to 1758 square feet. Detached from the property is a two storey building at ground level and a single garage. At lower ground level there is a useful utility room with masses of further potential, if required.

Accommodation - Approached from street level, stairs lead down to the front door with an interesting stained glass feature and, crossing the threshold, there is the view through the wide hallway and sitting room, to the balcony and sea beyond. From the hallway stairs lead to the balance of the bedroom accommodation. On the left is the second, and recently refurbished, family bathroom with walk-in shower. At this level is also the third bedroom or study, currently used as the music room.
The sitting room is undeniably one of the finest features of this marine house, 33 feet long and full of light, a wall of glass opens to the full length balcony beyond. This large room is loosely divided into three areas for relaxing, dining and working. An open plan kitchen, separated from the sitting room by a breakfast bar, is a modern affair, with integrated dishwasher and plenty of storage in the wall and floor mounted units. A door leads back to the gardens and out to the utility area.
Downstairs there are two very good bedrooms, healthily separated by the family bathroom, and, like the reception accommodation, they enjoy splendid sea views.
Behind bedroom two there is a cavernous storage area. The floor slopes to meet the ceiling, however this is ideal storage space.

Gardens & Grounds - The gardens are a spectacular feature of this delightful family home. Stunningly stocked with specimen shrubs, plants and trees, they have an almost tropical feel and are partly terraced. At the bottom of the garden is a large ornamental fish pond with specimen Carp.

Tenure - Freehold.
