I’m guessing it’s because the weekend is approaching and I lived absolutely nowhere near that properties near water are appealing right now. This Moxley McDonald-designed coastal property in Downderry, Cornwall is another.
It’s a fairly new build, dating back to last year in fact, set within a village on the coastline of south east Cornwall, but elevated above it and approached by its own private lane.
The location really is the selling point here, as are the views, which are said to span from Rame Head in the east, across the English Channel and Whitsand Bay with the Eddystone Lighthouse below the horizon, to Looe Island and Dodman Point beyond (in good weather conditions) to the west.
As for the house, it’s a very modern affair, designed to bring in plenty of natural light and with underfloor heating, stone walls, beams and hardwood flooring.
Bigger than the images indicate too, with accommodation over three floors. Enter at ground level and you’ll be greeted with walk-in storage, the fourth bedroom and an en-suite cloakroom / WC.
The more significant first floor has access to the outside garden terrace via folding doors, with inside space including a combined sitting room / family room / kitchen with extensive glazing and a vaulted ceiling area, a bedroom and a bathroom. The second floor has two further bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom
Outside space includes a brick driveway, an integrated double carport and grounds that include terraces to take advantage of the views.
£695,000 is the guide price if you are interested.
