Albany House is an elegant villa built in the late 19th century for one of Salcombe’s foremost master mariners.
It is situated in a quiet position overlooking Salcombe town and estuary, yet within a few minutes’ walk of all the town’s shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.
Each of the three flats enjoys off-street parking, a delightful large shared garden with outside seating and barbecues, wonderful views, unrestricted wireless broadband, multi-channel TV, an extensive Blu-ray/DVD library and guest membership of Salcombe Harbour Hotel Spa and Gym (for adults only).
Flats 1 and 3 sleep four, while Flat 2 is for one couple only.
All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms.
Each flat has its own unique style and identity, but they all share the same high standards of accommodation, finish and equipment (including washing and drying machines), and extra touches such as flowers and bathroom toiletries.
And, of course, those great views!
Albany House is always a pleasure to return to at the end of a hard day on the beach or returning from a cliff walk - a stunning destination, at any time of year.
Flat 1 occupies the top two floors of the house.
It enjoys breathtaking views across the town to Batson Creek, the wider estuary and rolling hills beyond from the master bedroom on the first floor and the living space on the top floor.
Furnished with a modern finish, with wooden or tiled floors in all the main rooms joined by a carpeted Victorian staircase, this bright, airy and stylish apartment offers open plan living, perfect for a small family, or up to two couples.
