Fabulous sea views from this exceptionally spacious, south-facing detached house extend from the Rame peninsula in one direction, to St George’s Island at Looe in the other. A gate at the end of the large enclosed garden gives private access to steps down to Downderry beach, dog-friendly all year round and a paradise for children with sand for castle building, rock pools for exploring, and sailing, windsurfing and surfing year-round.
Sundown is ideal for families to share, with masses of space both inside and out. With a huge sitting-room and equally spacious kitchen/dining-room everyone can enjoy meals and leisure time together, while six bedrooms and five shower/bathrooms ensure no queues at bedtime.
Things get better still as the double garage houses a half-size pool table, table-tennis, air hockey and table-football – plenty to keep everyone occupied whatever the weather. The village has a beachside pub with an excellent restaurant, and there is a cafe, a coffee shop and a small general store as well.
The delightful twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are nearby, where pretty terraced fishermen’s cottages jostle for space in narrow lanes and old smugglers’ pubs still ply their trade. A passenger ferry crosses to the Barbican in Plymouth, perfect for an exciting day out.
Sundown is fully kitted out for holiday comfort; the large sitting-room includes inviting sofas, a modern wood-burner, a hideaway gaming-area, as well as a second sitting-area overlooking the garden. The kitchen/dining-room is fully equipped for large gatherings, with an electric range cooker, a built-in coffee maker and a separate wine fridge.
A ground floor bedroom has versatile 'zip and link' beds, and an en suite shower-room (also accessed from the hall), perfect for those with limited mobility. Upstairs, the huge master bedroom has its own sitting-area, en suite bathroom and separate dressing-room, and patio doors opening onto a large, glass-fenced balcony – an amazing sun-trap in good weather. There are four more bedrooms, two are en suite and two share the family bathroom. For outdoor excitement try shark fishing trips from Looe harbour, or meandering walks along the clifftops nearby; when the tides and wind are right, there is even surfing in Whitsand Bay.
There is plenty for everyone to do in this hidden corner of Cornwall – but most of all, you will enjoy the delights of Sundown itself.
