SOLD – Scott Parry Associates are pleased to report another successful sale – ON THE BEACH, LOOE 5 MILES, FOWEY 17 MILES, KINGSAND/CAWSAND 10 MILES, PLYMOUTH 19 MILES – A fabulous plot of south facing amenity land, literally on the beach and with direct beach access, commanding a stunning 180 degree prospect over Whitsand Bay with the iconic land marks of the Eddystone Lighthouse and the Rame Peninsula clearly visible. About 0.20 Acre, Patio and Barbecue Area, Natural Area.
In an enviable setting on the highly prized Cornish Riviera, this plot of amenity land lies behind the sea wall and immediately above Seaton Beach. The plot occupies a south facing, front line position commanding an extraordinary panorama over Whitsand and Looe Bay, with the landmark of Rame Head in the east, the Eddystone Lighthouse on the horizon, the beach activity and constant passage of commercial, naval and pleasure craft across the bay provides a 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 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, 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.
The amenity plot extends to about 0.20 acre and briefly comprises a short flight of steps descending from Looe Hill to a large paved terrace/barbecue area measuring about 9.7m x 6m. The remainder of the ground is gentle coastal slope with natural flora and fauna and bounded on the south side by a concrete sea wall, from here a short flight of steps lead directly onto the beach. The ground might be considered suitable for perhaps a summerhouse for amenity use subject to any consents that may be required. It should be noted that Scott Parry Associates and our clients have made no enquiry in this regard. There are no services on site however we believe that mains services are on Looe Hill – again interested parties should make their own enquiries.
Using Sat Nav postcode PL11 3JQ – the land will be found on the left hand side immediately after passing Seaton House. There is no parking at the property, you are advised to park in one of the nearby carparks and proceed on foot.
