Property description

Situation Salcombe is a renowned sailing and boating centre located on the west side of the beautiful Salcombe estuary with miles of sheltered water and sandy beaches. The boat parks, slipways and mooring pontoons at Batson and Shadycombe Creeks make it the ideal location for anyone with a keen interest in the water as well as anyone looking for a tranquil environment to escape the rat race.

Salcombe has an excellent range of shops and recreational facilities including a wide range of pubs and restaurants. The popular town is a stylish holiday resort enjoyed by families all year round.
The market town of Kingsbridge is located 6 miles away and has an excellent range of shopping facilities with two large supermarkets and other small local retailers on the high street. There are also multiple heath care facilities, primary and secondary schools, a large leisure centre with swimming pool and other recreational facilities.

Surrounding Salcombe and Kingsbridge there are numerous sandy beaches and coastal walks along the South Devon coast path and access to the delightful South Hams countryside.

Description This detached two-bedroom bungalow is situated in a beautiful location, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the town, the property benefits from stunning panoramic views across from Soar headland taking in the church spire at Marlborough.

With generous low maintenance gardens at the front and rear along with a single garage and copious amounts of off road parking this property is a rare find. Due to the generous plot size there is plenty of room for possible extension subject to the necessary consents.

The property as it stands consists of two double bedrooms, a well-proportioned living room opening out into the south facing sunroom taking in the countryside views. To the rear of the property is the kitchen with door leading out to the large low maintenance terrace garden again, benefitting from the outstanding views.
