About this property

Modern, spacious recently completed detached house with a wrap-around sun terrace located in an elevated position to benefit from sea and estuary views beyond North and South Sands. EPC Rating B.

Salcombe is renowned as a sailing and boating centre located beside one of the loveliest estuaries in the South West with miles of sheltered water and fine sandy beaches on either side towards its mouth. The popular, bustling town has an excellent range of shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants. The area features a variety of excellent beaches and opportunities for all kinds of outdoor leisure pursuits including golf, horse riding, surfing and walking.

A standout property, The Sands is located in Main Road, Salcombe, in an elevated position so that it can truly benefit from its sea and estuary-facing aspect, including the rugged coast at Bolt Head and surrounding South Hams countryside, while also taking in the lovely sandy beaches of North and South Sands.

With a private wooded area to the rear and its raised position, The Sands feels very private but has immediate access to the main road that runs in and out this popular holiday town, while also being a short drive or 15-minute walk to North Sands.

Building work started on The Sands in 2015 after the present owner purchased a plot of land with the view to creating an exclusive Salcombe family home. Designed by self-build experts Potton, The Sands is a double-gabled detached property with a rendered and part-clad neutral toned exterior with a slate roof.Large windows and sliding doors provide plenty of natural light and the glass balustrades ensure the lovely views are undisturbed while complementing the steel guttering and downpipes. Internally, the neutral natural theme continues with oak doors and banisters throughout leading to open hallway and landing spaces that benefit from double-height windows to the front of the property.Spread over three floors, The Sands has a stylish fitted kitchen, a triple-aspect sitting room, five bedrooms, all with Porcelanosa en suite facilities, plus a second-floor room that could be converted into two rooms or used as study, playroom or cinema.
