A rare opportunity to acquire a handsome and spacious Victorian villa enjoying breathtaking, panoramic waterside and rural views from both its comfortable reception rooms and well-positioned outdoor spaces. EPC Rating E.
Allenhayes is a handsome, semi-detached, Victorian property located in one of Salcombe's most popular residential areas. Its elevated position ensures that most of its rooms, and its multiple and varied outdoor areas, enjoy spectacular views of South Pool Creek, East Portlemouth's village and sandy beaches and the National Trust land at Snapes Point.
Allenhayes is a property that befits its Victorian origins with a rendered exterior topped by decorative gables supporting a slate tiled roof and red brick chimney. Its interior boasts an abundance of period features with high ceilings, decorative cornices, picture rails, original doors and door furniture, and fitted shelves and cupboards all contributing to the elegance of this property. Its rooms, spread over three floors, are generously sized with most served by sash windows that allow plenty of natural light while also offering spectacular waterside and rural views. The owners have fitted a new kitchen.

On entering Salcombe from Kingsbridge continue straight past the first crossroads instead of turning left towards the town centre and follow Main Road as it contours around the side of the hill. At the next junction bear left into Devon Road and follow this road for about a quarter of a mile. Then take the second turning left into Allenhayes Road and Allenhayes will be found on the left hand side.
