Location The property lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty only 2 miles from the picturesque and historic cove of Talland Bay.
The tiny coastal hamlet of Lower Portlooe comprises a total of six residential properties, Tregon was converted by our client in 2000 although the property has been in their ownership for 31 years. The hamlet is approached over a long (250 yards) private drive creating a private and secluded environment close to the coast.
Looe with its busy harbour, town beach and Hannafore beach is within a short drive, the town enjoys a distracting panorama with tidal seafaring traffic including trawlers, day boats and leisure craft constantly in view. Looe straddles the wide river with its long bridge and stone harbourside, with a thriving tourist industry and popular with boating enthusiasts. There are a wide range of shopping and community facilities, on both sides of the river, together with award winning restaurants. On the edge of the town is a branch line railway which links with the main line at Liskeard (Plymouth to London Paddington 3 hours).
The coastline either side of Looe is beautiful and unspoilt, easily accessible via the South West Coast Path and there are substantial areas in the ownership of the National Trust. There are excellent bathing beaches and a wide network of footpaths and bridleways in the vicinity. The nearby town of Saltash has a Waitrose store on its northern outskirts.
The City of Plymouth lies within commuting distance, having an extensive and historic waterfront.
