This wonderful south facing property is in an idylic location and within walking distance of Bantham Beach and was renovated and extended by the current owners in 2017 making this an ideal holiday or permanent home. The contemporary style is reflected throughout the building with just a hint of the original property and offers a light, well insulated home with pretty views from each window over the attractive gardens and charming village. The quality of the property is seen from the oak flooring with underfloor heating to the fabulous bathrooms, all beautifully presented. Set on four floors with balcony, patio and sliding doors and with 5 bedrooms, the accommodation offers great flexibility. The heart of the home is the fabulous open plan kitchen/dining/living room with wood burning stove and great views over the garden, which changes as the seasons turn. On the ground floor is a further living room ideal to be used as a TV room or playroom.
The garden to the rear of the property offers a private sheltered area to sit and relax in, being bounded at the far end by a pretty trickling stream. Mature trees and shrubs and old stone wall add to the charm of the garden. There is a large garden shed and gravel area providing ample parking.
The property has been used as a holiday home and has recently been used as an Airbnb with visitors posting fantastic reviews and many planning a return.
West Buckland is an unspoilt large hamlet located just inland from the coast and enjoying peace and tranquillity, being away from main road traffic and set within a valley which is protected from the prevailing wind. Nearby are the better known coastal villages of Thurlestone and Bantham. Thurlestone is renowned for its 18-hole links golf course but also has some fine beaches, a village inn, a shop, church and a hotel which offers country club facilities to non-residents, including squash courts, swimming pool and a 9-hole golf course. On the other side of West Buckland lies Bantham which is arguably one of the prettiest villages in the South Hams being at the mouth of the River Avon and protected by sand dunes and vast expanses of golden beach. The market town of Kingsbridge is close at hand, as is the famous sailing centre of Salcombe on another delightful South Hams estuary.
