A deceptively large home with sea views in a popular residential area on the outskirts of Looe. Ideal as a holiday home with low maintenance grounds, the house would also make an attractive large family home.
This property is Tardis-like! From the road it appears to be a small bungalow however from the rear of the house this three storey property gives a better clue to its size. With sea views from the top of the house it is little wonder that all the principal rooms are to the rear.
An interlocking-brick driveway with room for three cars leads from the road to the single garage which has an electric up and over door as well as an inner door leading in to the house. Steps from the drive lead down to the front of the door. The house has up to five bedrooms depending on use and need. From the entrance hall there is an office (bedroom 5) and a games room (bedroom 4) as well as a shower room.
The hall leads to a very large kitchen with a range of timber cabinetry with integral double oven, gas hob with extractor over and a 1 1/2 bowl sink. There is space for a dishwasher and a larder fridge as well as space for a free standing fridge. There is a breakfast peninsula and plenty of space for a kitchen table and chairs.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a comfortable reception room which would work well as a dining room, or as a second sitting room. There is a marble effect fireplace and sliding patio doors which lead out to a raised balcony which overlooks the rear garden.
Upstairs there is a large sitting room with a number of windows offering extensive sea views from St. Georges Island to Rame Head. The room has a stone fireplace with inset living flame gas fire. An archway leads to a second smaller reception room with a built in bar, ideal for entertaining.
The lower ground floor has three double bedrooms, each with windows looking out over the garden. There are two family bathrooms, one at each end of the hall, both containing a sink, w/c and bath with a shower over.
The rear garden has a raised decked area to the side of the house with room for a bbq and table and chairs under a wooden pergola. Steps lead down to a patio area with room for a hot tub and a level gravelled low maintenance garden with a water feature and a number of raised planting areas around the boundary.
Plaidy is a popular residential area in East Looe. With shops, schools, and a number of amenities nearby. The twin towns of East and West Looe face each other across a river and are joined by a bridge with 7 arches dating from the early 19th century. With narrow streets and a medieval guildhall- now a delightful museum, the towns are home to the second largest fishing fleet in Cornwall. and it goes without saying that the area in general is a haven for boating, fishing and water sports. To the front of the town is the beach, great for families, with lots of rock pools to explore, separated from the Looe River by the Banjo Pier. There is also an international championship golf course at nearby St. Mellion.
The maritime City of Plymouth is just 15 miles distant with mainline railway station and air links to London.
