The current vendors have completed modernised this 1970's property from top to bottom in recent years and is now presented to the property in the highest decorative order. Originally owners accommodation to a neighbouring hotel, which is now a private residence, Downside offers spacious living accommodation which is both light and airy due to the south facing nature of the property together with the large picture windows within the property capturing the exception view across the Carrick Roads towards Falmouth. The spacious sitting room has been decorated with a modern and contemporary feel and has large bi folding doors at one end opening to the balcony which spans the entire length of the property. There has also been a wood burner installed as well as a speaker system set within the ceiling which can be connected to the television.
There is a formal dining room located next to the sitting room which again enjoys large bi folding doors opening to the balcony together with French doors opening to the kitchen / breakfast room. The kitchen / breakfast room has been fitted with a modern range of base and wall mounted units complemented with "Pietra" work surfaces with under countered integrated dishwasher, double oven and a 4 ring convection hob. Space is provided for an "American" style fridge / freezer. The breakfast area has access to the balcony like the previously mentioned rooms via bi folding doors. Completing the accommodation on the entrance level is a family bathroom which has been fully equipped with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware including a loo, wash band basin and bath with shower over. The bathroom has been finished with Travertine tiling.
The entrance hallway, dining room and kitchen / breakfast room have hard wood oak flooring running throughout. A wide turned staircase descends to the lower ground floor where there are three double bedrooms, family bathroom and utility room. The master bedroom is of particular note not only due to its spacious size with fitted wardrobes but also due to the generous walk in wardrobe and separate en suite bathroom which features a free standing Italian bath and separate walk in shower with glass screen. Again the sanitary ware within the en suite, excluding the bath, is Villeroy & Boch. The family bathroom, which serves the remaining two bedrooms again, is fitted with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware.
All bedrooms have French doors which open to the front terrace and gardens which also flood the bedrooms with plenty of natural light. The utility room has a door which leads to a drying area and in turn to the gardens. The property is approached through double timber gates opening into a generous driveway parking area which leads to the detached double garage with power and lighting. Next to the double garage is a workshop and boat store. The gardens lie mainly to the southern side of the property and are mainly laid to lawn and are of generous proportions. There is a front terrace set underneath the first floor balcony with the garden being enclosed at all sides by timber fencing. Within the grounds is a detached garden room which has under floor heating and would make a perfect self contained area for those buyers wishing to work from home or perhaps create a hobbies room within the grounds.
In all, this outstanding home must be viewed internally to fully appreciate all it has to offer including the wonderful outlook, spacious living accommodation and pure quality of finish throughout.
The vendors have recently been granted planning permission to create a 2 storey extension to the eastern side of the property therefore creating additional living space on the first floor and another bedroom with en suite bathroom and dressing room on the ground floor. More information available upon request.
