The Lookout offers buyers the opportunity to purchase a unique plot in arguably one of the best locations in the Polperro, with planning permission for a three bedroom detached house with outstanding views over the water. There is currently an uninhabitable timber dwelling on the site.

The proposed layout provides excellent, spacious living space downstairs including a light, airy sitting room with a terrace overlooking the sea, and a kitchen/breakfast room plus three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. All the rooms will have sea views as proposed.

Accommodation in full would comprise: entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen/dining room (open plan), larder, cloakroom/WC and three bedrooms, plus afamily bathroom. Outside, a terraced garden is proposed: the house has gardens, although currently overgrown, which are steep like the other gardens locally but could be beautifully landscaped.
