This stunning cottage on the edge of West Buckland was sympathetically extended in the 1970's to retain the character of the original cottage. It has been completely renovated by the current owners who have added a fabulous garden room and detached triple garage with a guest annexe above. The rooms are light and beautifully proportioned providing views over the gardens and surrounding countryside. A solid oak door opens to the entrance hall with a cloakroom and door to the dining room with inglenook fireplace and exposed beams. The central kitchen has a bespoke kitchen with granite worktops and Aga. Double doors open to a spacious and bright sitting room with French doors to the garden room with curved glass wall and bi-folding doors to the garden. On the first floor bedrooms 1 and 2 enjoy views across the valley with the master having an en-suite / dressing room. There is also a further bedroom and a family bathroom.

The stunning landscaped gardens have a large patio area off the garden room with a bridge to the guest annexe above the triple garage. There is ample parking with a further detached garage and useful larder store room.

The privacy of the gardens with various areas to sit and enjoy the peace and calm of this unique location are a real delight. The garden is terraced with beautifully planted borders, a wildlife pond and lawns sweeping down to a stream - it is hard to believe you are just a short walk from Bantham beach.

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.
