A unique detached residence, extended with care and inspiration, in a country setting of five properties within half a mile of the National Trust coast.
In a small cluster of individual and established detached properties located off an unmade lane within half a mile of the tidal creek at Noss Mayo, Travers provides a predominantly rural setting while not being isolated. The track forms a public footpath to the extraordinary and unspoilt coastline and the South West Coast Path. The nature of the track results in negligible passing traffic. The waterside facilities of Noss Mayo are within a short walk including The Ship and Swan Inns, village hall, bus route and tennis courts. This area is designated and protected as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and much of the coastline owned by the National Trust.
The front elevation leads one to anticipate that this is a traditional house of its period, with a characterful open verandah, but opening the front door leads to an inspiring and intriguing house of contemporary proportions. The upper level opens directly to the long rear garden with a tree lined boundary adjoining fields. Long and open views extend over the valley.
Mains electricity and water. Private drainage.
