A spectacular property with direct water access to the Salcombe Estuary and its own private beach, slipway and moorings. Designed and finished to an extremely high standard offering light contemporary and flexible accommodation; set within 7 acres of beautiful grounds offering a superb lifestyle.
Curlew Point is situated on its own headland, with a
south westerly aspect, in one of the most spectacular locations on the Salcombe / Kingsbridge Estuary. The Estuary is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It is sheltered and perfect for all boating enthusiasts, walkers, and birdwatchers. Nearby, the South West Coastal Footpath runs along the coastline connecting many attractive Blue Flag beaches and hidden coves.
Close by, at the head of The Estuary is the market
town, Kingsbridge. It offers a full range of excellent everyday facilities, including the South Hams Community Hospital, which treats minor injuries etc. The secondary school, Kingsbridge Community College, has been judged ‘outstanding’ by OFSTED; there are also a number of excellent primary schools.
Salcombe, at the mouth of the estuary, is one of the most prestigious sailing resorts on the south coast. It has several sandy beaches and is very popular with families. Dartmouth and Plymouth can be reached within a day’s sailing.
The A38 Devon Expressway provides links to Plymouth and Exeter, with flights from Exeter Airport direct to London’s City Airport as well as many European centres. There is also a good rail service to London Paddington from Totnes and Plymouth.
Designed by renowned architect, Peter Sandover, the house was built to a very high specification and completed in 2009. It is surrounded by 7 acres of delightful gardens and grounds. The house and terraces enjoy sun from sunrise to sunset. The
light filled rooms make the most of this unique location, with wonderful estuary views from every room.
A five bar gate opens to the long, tree lined, driveway taking you past the paddock to a further gated access and gravel drive leading to the house. The landscaped garden is a place of contrast, with formal terrace areas, a water feature and shrub borders. In other areas of the grounds there are lawns, an orchard and a historic lime kiln along with uninterrupted views up and down the Estuary. All of this is set within a haven of mature pines and deciduous trees.
The double height entrance hall forms the hub of the house from which all rooms radiate. The kitchen / dining room and sitting room have windows on three sides, opening on to wide
terraces, ideal to sit and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this superb location. On the first floor the galleried landing has vaulted ceilings with French doors opening on to a balcony. Each of the bedrooms has its own balcony / terrace and ensuite facilities. In the wing of the house there is a spectacular double height lounge and bedroom with en-suite facilities and private terraces. Above there is a gallery with a second kitchen, dining area and sitting with views to Bowcombe Bridge. This
provides independence for family and friends.
The limestone and oak floor has underfloor heating
throughout, and the open plan design allows for flexibility of use.
There is a detached double garage with gardener’s washing facilities and workshop / open storage above and to the side. There is potential to create ancillary accommodation here, subject to local planning.
