About this property

FOR SALE BY INFORMAL TENDER CLOSING DATE 12NOON ON FRIDAY 6TH APRIL 2018. Exceptionally rare opportunity to purchase a superb site in one of the most sought after locations in Salcombe, a detached house with excellent views to the sea with planning to create a landmark luxury home.

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 town has an excellent range of shops, pubs and restaurants.

The house is a short walk from the shops and waterfront in the centre of the town. In a stunning elevated spot which not only gives a high degree of privacy and protection but also allows for the most spectacular panoramic views out to sea and across the mouth of the estuary. The property is in a perfect position for a short walk to North Sands which is accessed from the bottom of the garden. These are some of the best views in Salcombe.

Proposed House - Planning permission has been granted to replace the current house with a beautiful 5 bedroom family home arranged over 3 floors. This contemporary design offers a rare and exciting opportunity to create one of the most striking properties in the area. The house has been meticulously designed to take full advantage of the outstanding views on every level.

It perfectly blends excellent entertaining and reception space with an impressive kitchen family area. This room flows neatly through French doors onto a stunning south facing terrace ideal for al fresco dining. This also takes full advantage of the outdoor pool area which is a real feature of the property.

There are 5 excellent bedrooms including a stunning master suite with its own terrace with outstanding views over the estuary mouth and 2 further rooms. In addition there is a private cinema room, private gym and games area which link in well with the lower terrace and create a functional area to relax and enjoy everything the house has to offer.

On the upper floor there is further informal entertaining space with a well appointed grand reception leading into the living room and private terrace creating a perfect space to unwind and enjoy the view whilst entertaining any guests.

From a practical point of view there is ample off street parking as well as an upper level car port and there is a lift accessing all levels of the property.

The house sits in a good sized plot with a generous garden and the potential for a full size tennis court and heated pool overlooking the outstanding view and an oversized garage/boathouse which is easily accessed via the lower road. It has excellent privacy and a favourable aspect that is rarely found in such a rare position in Salcombe.
