SOLD – Scott Parry Associates are pleased to report another successful sale – THE GLORIOUS CORNISH RIVIERA – RARELY AVAILABLE BEACHSIDE BUNGALOW WITH DIRECT BEACH ACCESS – A detached “Colt” bungalow in one of Cornwall’s most coveted coastal settings, south facing and commanding an extraordinary 180 degree panorama over the shimmering azure waters of Whitsand and Looe Bay. About 1858 sq ft, 18′ Sitting Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Sunroom, 3/4 Bedrooms (1 with shower off), Wet Room Shower/WC, Boot Room, Private Driveway Parking, Garage with Workshop/Summerhouse off, Large Level Gardens with Sun Terraces and Direct Beach Frontage/Access.


With private access to Downderry Beach, Ndaba is situated in a small cul-de-sac (of just eight individual houses and bungalows) with wide beach frontage and fabulous sea and coastline views. This is a prized location on a stretch of coastline often referred to as the Cornish Riviera and within a short and relatively level walk to the village centre and amenities.

The constant passage of commercial, naval and pleasure craft across the bay, provides an extraordinary, distracting and inspirational outlook.

The crystal clear waters of Whitsand and Looe Bay are renowned for bathing, surfing, kayaking and all manner of watersports.

Within the bay diving trips to HMS Scylla can be seen, the ex-Royal Navy frigate was sent to the bottom of Whitsand Bay on March 27th 2004, to become an artificial reef, Since then the wreck has enjoyed lasting success with dive trips and provides a home to a community of marine life, Whitsand and Looe Bay are officially designated Marine Conservation Zones and noted for the abundance of marine flora and fauna. Downderry lies within an Area of Great Landscape Value.

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.

A unique opportunity to purchase a frontline beachside and south facing bungalow in a prized coastal village setting, occupying a generous level plot on a small cul-de-sac of individual detached properties (only 8 including this) and available on the open market for the first time in 37 years. Given the property’s location within the village it is well suited for occupation as a primary residence where one can enjoy the vibrant, welcoming community and the mild maritime climate.

The property is a “Colt” bungalow of timber frame construction with predominantly cedar cladding and we therefore advise interested parties to check with their financial advisor/mortgage broker to ascertain access to a mortgage (assuming one is required) prior to booking an appointment to view. There is full double glazing together with some electric night storage heating and the bungalow will be found to be well presented throughout. Recently the property has been successfully used for holiday letting purposes and may be available furnished and equipped to enable it’s ongoing use (excluding personal items) subject to separate negotiation.

The accommodation extends to about 1858 sq ft and briefly comprises – Reception Hall – 18′ Sitting Room sliding door to 12′ Sunroom with fabulous sea views – 12′ Dining Room – 14′ Kitchen with Boot Room off – Cloakroom/WC – 20′ Principal Bedroom with shower cubicle and Private Snug/Sitting Room (potentially a fourth bedroom or nursery) – 2 Further Bedrooms – Wetroom Shower/WC enabling comfortable occupation of the property for those with restricted mobility.

The property is approached over a private entrance drive providing ample parking and leading to the garage with workshop/garden room off perfect for storing beach and garden paraphernalia.

The level garden plot extends to about 0.25 acre. The garden is level with a fine south aspect where one can enjoy 180 degree views spanning the entirety of Whitsand and Looe Bay, there are paved patios and various established tree, shrub and flower beds. The east and west boundaries have mature hedging enhancing the secluded and sheltered garden environment.

From the garden a private gate and path provide direct access to the beach enabling the owner to enjoy beach walks and participate in water based activities including bathing, surfing, snorkelling and kayaking etc immediately from the property.
