The property is located in a stunning elevated position overlooking the country side in Salcombe, a renowned estuary town and yachting haven located at the heart of the South Hams region in South Devon famed for its uncommonly temperate climate, verdant unspoilt countryside and spectacular coastline. Arguably one of the most sought-after seaside locations in the UK, Salcombe has boat parks, slipways and mooring pontoons at Batson and Shadycombe Creeks, making it the ideal location for anyone with a keen interest in the water.
Once a thriving fishing village, Salcombe still retains much of its original charm and character and provides a good selection of day-today amenities including boutique shopping, numerous restaurants and public houses and two upmarket hotels, Salcombe Harbour Hotel and The South Sands Hotel. The town also has a protected harbour offering deepwater berths and numerous coves and sheltered anchorages, making it an excellent base for dinghy sailing, water sports, boating and long coastline walks. North and South Sands beaches are magnificent sandy beaches accessible from the town, while a short ferry ride across the estuary gives easy access to East Portlemouths sandy beaches.
The nearby market town of Kingsbridge has an excellent range of shopping facilities with two large supermarkets and other small local retailers together with multiple heath care facilities, a large leisure centre with swimming and other recreational facilities.
The property enjoys excellent communication links: Ivybridge train station offers regular trains to Paddington in just over 3 hours, the A38 Devon Expressway gives access to major towns and to the national motorway network and Exeter Airport offers a growing number of national and international flights, including daily flights to London City Airport.
The area benefits from a good selection of state schooling including Salcombe C of E Primary School and Kingsbridge Academy together with some noted independent schools including Plymouth College, Kings and Totnes Progressive.
