SOLD – Scott Parry Associates are pleased to report another successful sale – A detached seaside house for improvement.

SOLD – Scott Parry Associates are pleased to report another successful sale – A detached seaside house for improvement, the property occupies a generous south west facing plot and enjoys panoramic sea views with Dodman Point and The Lizard visible on the horizon. About 1115 sq ft, 18′ Sitting Room, 22′ Gallery Kitchen/Dining Room, Laundry/Boiler Room, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bath/Shower Rooms, Large Garage (About 196 sq ft), Parking, Gardens with Extensive Sea Facing Terraces.


22 Trerieve is situated in an elevated, south west facing and established residential location of individual detached houses close to Downderry village amenities and the beach on a stretch of coastline often referred to as the Cornish Riviera. The 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, historic country houses and many other places of interest lie within an easy drive.

Available on the open market for the first time in about 50 years, 22 Trerieve represents an opportunity to purchase an individual detached house in need of improvement. Given the position and the generous plot the property would benefit from modernisation or indeed extensive remodelling depending upon budget and individual requirements and of course subject to any planning consents that may be required.

The accommodation extends to about 1115 sq ft having a unique layout and interesting architecture with the three principal rooms each having direct access to the terraces allowing fabulous sea and country views. The property is partly double glazed and has oil fired central heating (not tested).

The layout is as follows – Reception Hall – 18′ Sitting Room with wood burner (not tested) and French doors to terrace – 22′ Dining Room with sliding patio door to terrace – Kitchen/Breakfast Room – Laundry Room – 3 Bedrooms (2 Double & 1 Single) – Bathroom – Shower Room/WC.

The property has off road parking and a large garage/workshop with roof terrace over. A short flight of steps lead up to the front terraces with a fine south aspect and lovely sea views. To the rear there is an enclosed rear garden which is well established (currently overgrown) with lawned areas and various trees and shrubs. The garden backs onto Deviock Wood which is managed by The Woodland Trust. Parts of the garden are overgrown and viewers are advised to wear appropriate footwear and take care when walking around the garden. In particular the decking outside of the bedroom is likely to be rotten and access to this deck will not be permitted.
