About this property

Delightful Grade II listed house in stunning prime waterfront position with immediate fascinating harbour and sea views, landing steps and running mooring. No EPC required.

Tucked away in an enviable waterside position with its own landing platform, direct access to the foreshore and its own running mooring, The Watch House is a magical 4 bedroom property brimming with character and enjoying views across the ever changing waterways of Salcombe and the open sea beyond. Arranged over 4 floors this light and airy property commands panoramic views which are full of interest and activity from all principal rooms and balcony on first floor level.

Significant improvements have been made in 2014, including tanking the whole of the lower ground floor, renovating the staircase and replacing both bathrooms. It has been in the same family for over 30 years and rented out by the current owners for short holiday lets.
