There is also a light and airy conservatory with a south-facing aspect, overlooking the rear garden. The ALNO kitchen has white storage units and wooden worktops, as well as integrated appliances, including a double oven and a hob with an extractor hood. A practical boot room and a utility complete the ground floor facilities. The first floor has two double bedrooms, the principal bedroom and one additional bedroom, both with magnificent views over the Salcombe-Kingsbridge Estuary. There are also two single bedrooms - which could be used as home office space or dressing rooms - a family bathroom and a shower room.
