The property is situated in an elevated south facing position only a short walk from Downderry Beach. Sunnyside lies in an established residential area within the village comprising a mix of individual detached houses. This is a prized location 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, the Rame Peninsula, Mount Edgecumbe Country Park, historic country houses and many other places of interest lie within an easy drive.

Sunnyside comprises a detached south facing house in a most coveted location only a short walk from the village amenities and the beaches of Seaton and Downderry. The house was completed in 2013 but has recently undergone a thorough improvement scheme and will be found to be presented to a stunning contemporary standard thoughout. The accommodation is versatile with garden access at both ground and first floor levels. The current configuration enables the ground floor east wing to be used as an annexe for dependent relatives or perhaps for holiday letting (our client has been successfully letting through Airbnb). The house incorporates modern energy saving features including solar pv, high levels of insulation and ground source heat pump serving underfloor heating and providing an energy performance rating of C, there is also an electric car charging point and rainwater harvesting making the property very energy efficient. The property further benefits from full fibre broadband (approx 900mb) together with a hot tub.
