A deceptively spacious and comfortable property sitting proudly above the town with clear and uninterrupted views along the Salcombe estuary. Something of a local landmark in its elevated position, this late 19th Century house has been converted into three apartments in recent years with the main holiday accommodation divided over two floors and offering exclusive access to the large garden. Much of the property has been recently refurbished and it is suited to family groups or perhaps two couples looking for a centrally located house with lovely views and off-road parking.


Full Details

LOCATION The property is located towards the lower end of Devon Road with just a 5-7 minutes downhill walk into Salcombe and its array of boutiques, pubs, restaurants and famous waterfront.  The sandy beaches of East Portlemouth and Millbay can be reached quickly and easily via the small passenger ferry that runs to/from the harbour all year round.
VIEWS Stunning views along the Salcombe estuary towards Snapes Point and South Pool Creek and across to East Portlemouth beach, from each of the rooms on the front elevation and the garden/terrace.
ENTRANCE An outer door (unlocked) leads into a glazed porch area with the main entrance door offering access into the property at the first floor level.  A further door from the hallway leads into the accommodation with two bedrooms and shower room on this floor.
SITTING/DINING ROOM On the ground floor, and with panoramic views, is a comfortably furnished sitting room with double sofa, armchairs, chaise longue, coffee table, feature stone fireplace, flat-screen TV, DVD player and DAB radio/MP3 hi-fi.  Glass door leads out to the garden.  The dining area has an ash table seating eight comfortably.
