Prime coastal site development opportunity

What could be nicer than living by the water overlooking a dramatic stretch of picturesque South Hams coast line.

Driftwood House offers such a rare opportunity, being a prime coastal development site offering panoramic sea and countryside views over Start Bay.

There is an existing property on the site, sitting in a stunning location above Slapton Sands with wonderful views across to Start Point.

The grounds have safe access to the beach and direct access to this particularly lovely stretch of the South West Coast Path, which runs from Salcombe to Dartmouth.

The shingle beach stretches almost three miles to the village of Torcross and Slapton Ley which runs parallel to the beach and is the largest freshwater lake in south-west England.  This national nature reserve is a great draw for locals and visitors alike and a wonderful natural attraction to have on your doorstep.

The site formerly had planning consent (expired January 2016) for a 2,949 sq. ft. house and is for sale by public auction subject to a reserve price, unless previously sold, date to be announced.
