Rare opportunity to purchase iconic creek-side house

Waterside is one of the most iconic houses in Lower Batson, near Salcombe, and it is now available to buy through leading estate agents Marchant Petit.

The property dates back to the 19th century and is immediately recognisable to people who have traversed the waterways around Salcombe or have walked or driven towards Lower Batson from this vibrant South Hams town.  

With its wonderful south facing location, Waterside rises from the water's edge, past a castellated creek wall with steps and a tiered garden to reveal a stone, slate-roofed house with green painted shutters and an abundance of climbing roses, jasmine and fuchsia.

This three bedroom property’s original charm extends to its interior with plentiful window seats providing opportunities to enjoy the views. Low ceilings, wall panelling, original doors and fittings, and fireplaces remain loyal to their Victorian era.

An upgraded slate tiled, pitched roofed garage has been converted to a modern garden room with considerable accommodation overlooking the creek and gardens.

There is also plenty of space for outdoor entertaining and enjoying the tranquil views with a standout romantic, semi enclosed gazebo, complete with weathervane and nearby palm tree.

Marchand Petit Director Harriet Cundy said: “This is a rare opportunity to purchase an iconic property that will be recognisable to South Hams regulars. Waterside benefits from a truly enviable location next to Batson Creek’s slipway and it even has its own mooring, accessed via stone steps leading from a gate at the bottom of the garden. Viewing is highly recommended.”

Waterside is on the market at a guide price of £1,500,000 through Marchand Petit’s Salcombe office. Further details may be obtained by calling 01548 844473

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.


We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.


In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
